“A Rhythmic Ribbon of Neo Soul and Hip Hop, a shot of musical intoxication…Tequila!”

“Exclusive Interview with Tequila”

“On the third hot sunny Saturday in June, Tequlia McClinton gives her performance at a public music gathering at DeFremery Park in Oakland, CA. I happened to be in the area and was immediately struck with her distinctly soulful voice from across the park. She mixes her sound of funk and soul in the current era of new school rap and house music, now picture that. I didn't know who she was, but I knew I had to interview her. I arrived and there she stood humble with a gracious smile spending time with her fans. The incredible interview begins with "Hi, how are you?" And the rest is an amazing interview with an artist who stays true to her craft in changing times. You're incredible. What's your story?”

“Introducing Tequila, a new emerging female rapper from Oakland, California. Growing up in the Bay Area, Tequila witnessed the birth of Hyphy music and was inspired by this trend along with her love of singing and rapping to persue a career in music. Here, you will find out more about Tequila and her plans to take on the music industry by storm, as well as the opportunity to listen to her music to see what Tequila has to offer…”

“Tequila, the female rapper nominated Bay Area Female Artist-of-the Year has been given a release from her previous label Liferdef Records. The label released all of its artists to concentrate on one project and other issues posted on a blog on the labels’ website. The split was welcomed by Tequila who has been putting the finishing touches on her second album “It’s My Swagga.” Tequila, who is managed by OnLok Music and Entertainment has been considered one of the most unique female rappers and her sound does not fit the mode of other female rappers. Tequila’s voice has been labeled by some music industry insiders is a cross between Macy Gray, Da Brat, Erykah Badu, and her delivery rivals no one. Her new album “It’s My Swagga” is pending considering her release.”

“Dubcnn was given the exclusive opportunity to sit down with multi-talented Tequila, who is an artist that does not come along too often. A silky, yet rugged mix between Macy Gray, Da Brat, Erykah Badu, E-40 and Keak Da Sneak, her marketability and appeal is growing by leaps and bounds. She is routinely in the Top 10 most viewed and played on MySpace, evidenced by her having over 2 million hits to her page. The Lady of Swag sat down with Dubcnn for this exclusive interview to discuss growing up in Oakland, CA, the meaning of Swag Juice, who her influences were, what it’s like working with bay legend Mike Marshall and much, much more!”

“TEQUILA, THE INTERNATIONAL RAP SENSATION FROM THE BAY AREA HAS TRANSITIONED INTO A NEOSOUL/HIP HOP ARTIST THAT IS CUTTING A NEW PATH WITH NEW MANAGER TONY STROMAS. THREE NEW TRACKS ARE BURNING UP THE INTERNET INCLUDING THE SMASH SINGLE "HISTORY" FOLLOWED BY "FLY HIGH" AND "OVERCOME PAIN"”
