BLAZIN JOINT: Roc A Fella Records rapstress Amil returns with her new joint ‘Remember’, explains to Billboard Magazine why she parted ways with Jay Z

It’s no secret that female rap shined at its brightest in the 90’s with a list of heavyweights like Foxy Brown, Missy, Eve, and Da Brat riding high on the charts right alongside their male counterparts, but even though the list of chart-topping femcee’s is kind of short there still were a B-class group of femcees in the industry during that era that also made a mark in the game such as Queen Pen, Ms Jade, Mia X, Rah Digga, Lady May, Mocha, Sole’, Charli Baltimore, and Jay Z’s protege’ Amil

The latter just recently chopped it up with Billboard Magazine as part of their ” Month Of The Female Rapper”  series and opened up about her relationship with Jay Z and her rise and fall in the rap game…


“I think they (Roc-A-Fella) knew through my actions that I wasn’t in it. I wasn’t the artist that was doing everything to be No. 1. I wasn’t doing anything to make myself bigger than what I was. I wasn’t putting any effort in promotion. I wasn’t looking at it as a career. It’s not that I wasn’t doing it because I was stupid, it was because I didn’t want to be there anymore.”

“There was never a conversation. He (Jay Z) knew that that’s not where I wanted to be. I told him that I couldn’t do it for another year. I think he understood, overall. He thought that as time went on I’d be ready, but later realized I wasn’t. I know he knew, ‘She don’t give a fuck about this shit. I was fine being an around the way rapper”

“If I could go back in time and do it all over again, I wouldn’t have allowed myself to jump in the game.  If I would have done it again, I would have left it alone. I wasn’t cut out for it. I probably would have stepped in as a writer.”Amil/Billboard
