Ask anyone from Brooklyn where to go on a random Monday night and they’ll tell you Electric Punanny, located at Sway night club in Manhattan’s West Village. Next thing they may tell you is to check out Jasmine Solano, the Queen B, resident DJ and co-creator of E.P. A testament to the word Grind, Jasmine worked for years in video production while doubling as a closet MC. Fast forward to today and Ms. Jasmine’s got two singles, “That’s Not It” and “CoCo Puff” moving crowds across the nation while opening for massive talents Sean Kingston, Ghost Face, Clipse and Rakim. She killed it as the only female MC at Rock The Bells and toured with NYC punk-rappers Ninjasonik all summer.
Find Jasmine at any worthy 5 Borough party, as this much sought-after member of Brooklyn creative royalty will definitely be in your ipod shuffle asap, and you know we ain’t even frontin’. Ant Hull caught up with Jasmine recently to discuss her new found success, long-time hustle and lovin’ on some shiny pants. Check out the interview below, and help us blast this Philli chick into her much deserved spotlight as BK’s latest musical heir.
