In an interview with Olivia Allin of “MISSBEHAVE” magazine, Mapei describes her sound as: “Diana Ross dining with Kate Bush on a Sunday night in Detroit while listening to 2 Live Crew, dead prez, and Kool Keith in some titty bar,” she says while adding, “neon lights, discussions, and some drugs.”
Incidentally, Mapei literally translates to “Mulatto woman” in Bassa, a Liberian Tribal language. Mapei is half-Liberian and half-ItaloAmerican.
I know I’m late (this video is from 2007), but I have finally been able to sit down and catch up on my back issues of “Missbehave” magazine.
