HipHopWired recently caught up with Jive Records singer/songwriter K. Michelle who’s been using the internet to highlight her talents through R&B infused freestyles and mixtapes.
The talented Tennessee songstress dished on a number of topics including her mentor R. Kelly who told her he would gladly pass down his ‘King Of R&B’ crown to her in due time.
“Kellz is real big on his freestyles and hopping on things…I don’t wanna compete with the girls I wanna compete with the dudes to have the King Of R&B [R.Kelly] say you’re the next king of R&B.
In between talking about her single and her views on other talented female singers, Michelle dished on her infatuation with rapper Lupe Fiasco who she’s had a crush on since meeting him in the recording studio.
“My nipples just got hard…that man is just fine. We was in the studio and I have the biggest mouth[…] but when he came in there I didn’t know what to say. I wasn’t starstruck I just thought he was so fine! I was so quiet and that’s how everybody knew I really liked him, I didn’t say nothing! It’s just something about him, he’s a rebel like me. “
The conversation wasn’t totally positive however, Michelle did express her disdain for her label home of Jive Records and hinted at wanting to move on.
“I feel like my label hasn’t allowed me to be me and I’m just at the point where it’s like Fawk you! There’s so much freedom in Fawk you. So that’s where I’m at with my label. Fawk you, Fawk you, Fawk you, Fawk you, Fawk you, Fawk you, I don’t care.”
