Rece Steele is Miss Rap Supreme and she spoke to VH1 on her time on the reality show, her career, and life after winning.
I should remind you she won $100,000 along with the cheesy title. Hopefuly she got the cash prize when the show was filmed months ago; because with the economy as it is, 100k is worth about three tanks of gas and a breast implant.
Anyways, here’s an excerpt of her interview thingy…
Chiba, in a roundabout way albeit, suggested that you need liposuction. Is there pressure to conform to a certain standard of beauty, as a female rapper?
I’ve lost 20 lbs., since the show. Chiba didn’t have to tell me that. Any flaw that I have, I’m already aware of it. Will I let it stop my day-to-day? Hell no. I know plenty of other people who have a gut from having a baby. It happens. Do I think that you have to have a perfect shape to be in the business? No. It’s all about the way you carry yourself. After Twist left, I was the biggest girl left in the house, but I never had any particular feelings about the others being smaller than me. I guess it’s just my confidence.
And speaking of Chiba, although you did avoid drama for the most part, there was the incident that involved you swinging a chain in her direction…
Yeah. I didn’t mean to do that. Part of it was being away from home. And then Chiba and I had a couple of confrontations before that even went down. I was just really tired of her. I really wanted her to hit me that day, and I am not a violent person. It’s rare, but I lost my cool. But I saw Chiba recently, and I gave her a hug. I don’t want any negativity with the girls. I’m not trying to bash them in the ground. I want everyone to succeed. It’s hard out here for us. I respect all of these girls. Even if I didn’t like how Chiba sometimes went about it, I respected that she had a mission. I think as women, we just need to unite. Some of the girls aren’t as grinding as hard as they should be right now. The show ran for eight weeks and I saw that eight weeks as a time to get out in the industry, to get yourself known, get some contacts, get to know labels and A&R people, get to red-carpet events. I tell the girls to get out there and do that
