I know I've been missing from the DTY world, but I'm back! And for my first post of 2010 I wanted it to be a special one, so I bring you the hotness from one of my favorite female MC's, 6S!

Bey Knows Best is the first installment in a series of mixtape's from 6S.

I was even lucky enough to get a mini interview in with her!

Don't Trip Yet: Why 6S? How did it come to being?
6S: The better question is why not "success". if your goal isn't success, what are you even trying for? Success is the destination. Music is the avenue.

DTY: How did the concept of "Bey Knows Best" come about?
I was a HUGE Destiny's Child fan growing up. Even through adulthood, as I grew out of that, I always followed the ladies and of course it's hard to miss Beyonce b/c she's everywhere. I was at the "I Am...." show in Detroit actually watching Beyonce perform when I got the idea to do the mixtape. It just kind of came to me.

DTY: Are you a Bey stan?
Hahaha. Not at all. There are definitely things about her that I admire and that have influenced me. But I leave the stanning to everyone else.

DTY: What's your favorite track off of "Bey Knows Best"?
Probably "Sweet Dreams". I love the original song. It's so dynamic and hits on some many different levels.

DTY: Are you a DTY reader?
Of course! When I first started discovering blogs, DTY was one of the first that I actually followed. I'm a hip, fashionable, sassy chick....how could I NOT read DTY???

DTY: How/why do you think our readers can relate to you and your music?
I follow DTY b/c it speaks to girls like me. I make music for people like me. If you're smart little sassball, Bey Knows Best is for you ;-)

DTY: How do you embody female empowerment and progression?
In a male dominated industry, if you're not the type of woman that can hold your own and make moves, you'll get swallowed up. I think one of the things women don't realize is how much power we have and how much we can accomplish by working together instead of against each other. When ever I encounter another woman who I think is dope or doing her thing (whether it be in music or otherwise), I tell her. Dope is dope. Whether it's me or it's you.

DTY: What else do you have in store for us?
The second installment of the mixtape series will be coming up "The Bey Side". I'm featured on a few different projects that are scheduled to come out this Spring. Plus, I plan on getting back in the studio soon to record a full mixtape. I know I've been teasing people b/c Bey Knows Best is only 5 tracks and the previous project "The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down" was only 8. I'm finally going to give people what they've been asking for.
