Today’s guest doesn’t hail from the usual hip hop mecca’s like New York, LA or Chicago… she’s from Estonia. Our next guest Ms.Madli came to the US without much of a plan other than to make it in the music industry. She was classically trained on piano but knew the reading music wasn’t her passion, hip hop was. She made beats on the side for 7 years and entered in a beat battle one fateful day in 2014 where she placed third. She came back the next year and won.
That got people to start taking notice, people like Sway Calloway who ended up having her on “Sway in the Morning”. She is also a composer and has made compositions for VH1, CBS, ABC and other major networks. She shares her story as a first-generation immigrant making it not just in America but the music industry.
