A Columbia, SC native, Sadie Hawkins is not necessarily a novice to the entertainment industry but looks to revolutionize the hip-hop genre. Boasting a resume’ that includes developing a DVD magazine and club promotion, Hawkins plans to now add emcee to further enhance her entertainment career.
Sadie Hawkins began her music career just recently [October 2010], yet she has already won two artist showcases and has opened for artist such as Yung Joc, OJ Da Juiceman, and Waka Flocka. Her inaugural single, “Vouch For That,” was a collaborative effort between Hawkins and Mr. DonDaDa.
The recent success of her single led Hawkins to embark on a course in which music would inevitably become paramount.
Hawkins hopes to empower her female listeners, which is in part why she chose the stage name Sadie Hawkins, “Traditionally [whether it’s business or a relationship], it’s the man who does everything and has the authority and power per se’ and I want my audience to claim that power for themselves and say I have the same authority, I have that same power, I am the boss!”
Hawkins is emphatic in expressing that she is serious about her profession as an entertainer and that she brings more to the table than your average female ‘rapper.’
“One of my greatest inspirations is Otis Redding. I aspire to have a career similar to his in the aspect that I want to become an African American entertainer who tops the charts and breaks barriers in the music industry based off merit and nothing else.” Hawkins adds, and from the sound of things she is well on her way.
