April 2003: Dre ‘interested’ in Ms Dynamite

Ms Dynamite’s revealed a collaboration with Dr Dre could be on the cards.She played her first solo gig at the weekend at Brixton Academy – seven months pregnant. She mentioned a few times that the baby was kicking, and during one break her brother Kingsley did a minor set, rapping fresh material over tracks by the likes of Nas. She started with ‘Boo’, the track that broke her into the garage market, and then a number of songs from the rest of the album. There were three video screens showing her as a kid with her family, and one showing a war rally. Radio 1 spoke to her afterwards and she revealed Dr Dre was a huge fan and was interested in working with her:”He’s spoken to people very close to me about the particular tracks that he likes, and it’s overwhelming for me. I’m like ‘Oh my God, did Dre say that?’”"It’s exciting. Right now it’s just talk. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate that talk. I appreciate that he’s even taking the time out to listen to what I’m doing, but at the end of the day, when it happens, then I’ll be excited!”As for the baby, she said she wants to wait until she gets to know his character before naming him, but reckons he’s already showing he’s got some talent: “I haven’t got any names. I’m a bit superstitious. I’d rather wait until he’s here and see his face. A name is a very important thing to me – you can only live up to your name.” “Every slight piece of bass that he hears, all I get is kick, kick, kick, kick, kick! I think he likes music. I think he’s gonna be a dancer. If not he’s gonna be a footballer because of the way he’s kicking me around!”
