Seepmuzik- Can we meet you?
Map jb- Uhmmm kk..my name is Mary Peters known as MAPJB..amma rapper..singer..songwriter..makeup artiste

Seepmuzik- Tell us a little about growing up,the challenges and others.
Map jb- Growing up as d only girl in ma family wiv 6 brothers..was..i'll say fun?..cuz m grateful..for everything + overcoming ol challenges dah in da past I faced..ol thanks to God almighty

Seepmuzik- So how did you get started? Asin singing and rapping?
Map jb- Uhmmm..i'll say I grew up loving music... Cos as ma brothers would always b playin music in da house...as @ b4 I was only singing n writing songs...buh..ah dunno..da rapping shii jus caught up to mi..cux I loved listening to hip hop music n one of ma elder bro was one of ma inspirations too.. becuz he was also a rapper way b4 I even knew ah could start rappin..

Seepmuzik- Cool....... How would you describe yourself?
Map jb- I'll describe myself in one word "fearless"...amma pure heroine..very sociable...n would never back down for nothing..*laughs

Seepmuzik- Dope i love that word 'heroine'. Do you still recall how you felt that fateful day you dropped your first single?
Map jb- Ya ya..sure..i remember ah was way not myself dah day..cuz ah was scared n @ da sme tym..very happy..scared of d outcome..mayb d public won't like or enjoy ma kind of music ..n happy cuz I knew ma team I.C.M had ma back n was encouraging mi not to worry about anything ...n surprisingly daht day turned out to b a gr8 day..cuz everything was jus happening so fast..m thankful n ah appreciate everybody dah supported da " E PAIN U" movement

Seepmuzik- Tell us a little about making "E Pain You", how did everything come together?
Map jb- Hmmm...'e pain u..i'll say..jus happened...cuz d day I wrote d song..I was practically very happy...doing na house chores..when ah started humming d tone of da song...den ah rushed inside ma room..looked for ma music book n a pen n started writing..people be asking y I wrote d song d way it is..i
juz say inspiration...cuz I wasn't beefing anybody when I was writting...soo ya..E pain you...juz happened..

Seepmuzik- A lot of music is all about relationships, do you draw from personal experience when you're writing?
Map jb- Ya...I do draw from my personal experience when writing music buh not always..cuz some of ma songs jus happens...without stress I compose songs..hooks..verses very easily

Seepmuzik- So Who are the main players when you're in the studio working on new material?
Map jb- +So I wouldn't say it's mostly bout my relationships buh ya kinda..cuz ah tend to write wiv what's happening around me..

Seepmuzik- Would you call yourself a singer before a rapper?
Map jb- Ya...I can..like ah said I started singing b4 goin into rap...most people sef still think I only sing...n when dy hear ah rap also..they'll b like "what"!!!..like ciruzly??..ah don't look like a rapper nahh..do i??..so ya....whether amma singer or rapper...it's ol good. .as long as am good @ what am doing..

Seepmuzik- Do you feel like it's important to work with other female rappers?
Map jb- Uhh..ya I think it'll b a gr8 idea and sure ya..it is important ..to knw where you stand(i.e u wouldn't want somebody telling u..so so person raps better dan u do..so ya it's helps too)..buh I've never worked wiv another female mc...only male rappers...buh ah knw definitely I will in da future..

Seepmuzik- What's the hardest part about navigating the industry?
Map jb- Aww..it ol boils down to the "fear of failure" for example ah started out singing ..buh it turns out people enjoy me rap dan when ah sing.. Dats practically why I made d transition from being a singer to a rapper ..buh if in da end it doesn't work out(God forbid)I tend to lose ma expertise and starting from da ground again won't b easy..buh @ da end of the day..its ol God's doing ..yap

Seepmuzik- Aside writing songs and rapping, you are also into modelling.
Map jb- Modelling??..nah I wouldn't say that...buh it's somewhat true..because I love takin pictures...*laughs* well mostly of ma face....cause ah dnt hv the body of a model..errybbodi knows dah =D ya ya am chubby n not tall ..buh if I were to go into modelling..i'll b a face model...:]Y am pretty yap..no lie
