    LaSuria Kandi Allman interviews Detroit Hip Hop artist P-Dot

    At the age of thirteen, Pamela Tynisha Willis a.k.a. P-DoT was introduced to the rap game. She attended Frank Cody High School on Detroit’s Westside where, during lunch hour, she, along with a few of her classmates would battle rap. She quickly gained recognition and respect for being one of the only females lyricists brave enough to step in the battles and shine. 

    It wasn’t until the summer of 1993 when she met D.Troy Jones, Mack from Live Action Entertainment, Rod B. Gutta, known then as Snyp the General, Earl Smoov, producer and songwriter, and broke the ice in the studio and recorded her first solo titled “The Wrong Hoe 2 Provoke”. Taken under the wing of both Mack & D.Troy Jones, P-Dot has had the pleasure of being a part of some of the best Detroit underground collaboration albums.. She displays her talent in various styles and can write any style from commercial to reality rap. 

    Both her delivery and stage presentation showcases the “originality” of Hip Hop. She is inspired by artist such as M.C. Lyte, Missy Elliott, Eve, The Conscious Daughters and The Lady of Rage. To this day, P-DoT continues to pursue her hip hop career. She is constantly promoting, making appearances and performing in different areas from Michigan to Atlanta. 

    P-Dot is always practicing her craft, breaking ground on every stage possible; her main objective is to share her talent with the world and wants her story to be heard. She hopes to one day be recognized for her lyrical skills and has just released her first solo project August 1, 2015 titled “WHO IS IT”? Since the release she has already sold 200 copies and counting. She has all the hunger, drive and ability to make it far with her talent.
