Artist Of The Week - Meet C'Nee Starlette

Posted by Mélina Tremblay on

Who are you?

Well, well…. My name is C’nee Starlette and I am a young black rapper/artist manager/program coordinator/fashion lover/Semi Gordon Ramsey/ Semi soeur Angèle from the MTL suburbs, but I grew up in St-Michel (North-East of MTL). Ouf… lolll.

When did you start doing music?

I think I started writing music when I was around 13-14 years old. I used to change the lyrics of popular songs and build a new song with it… but I kept the same flow. I remember the first song I did this on was ‘’Gunshot’’ by Akon, haha! A few months later, I decided to keep the instrumentals, but ride on the beat with my own flow (like 80% of MTL rappers were doing at the time, lol). Now I have exclusive instrumentals and I’m loving it. Really gets my creative juices flowing !

What food, drink, or song inspires you?

FOOD !? I mean, any good meal will inspire me. Anything that hits home but won’t make me sleep cuz I’m too full! My drink of choice is a Gin Soda. I’m not a fan of extra sweet drinks (even if I’ll drink anything anyway). I feel like a gin soda is straight to the point, like my music. Also, I am a firm believer that beauty lies in the simplicity of things. And beauty inspires me… any kind of beauty. Songs that inspire me are well crafted songs, thoughtful songs, with a bitter sweet musicality that make me press repeat when I’m in my car late at night.

When do you feel most creative?

After a drink during the evening or right when I wake up. Sometimes, I get a burst of creativity when I’m walking to get somewhere and so, I have to take my cell phone and record my ideas. I’m always shy when I do that cuz I always have a feeling that someone hears me, loll.

Name three artists that inspire you most.


A$AP Rocky
Gucci Mane --- Three6 Mafia (issa tie)
Rihanna

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. I’m still working on that...

Do you have a project coming soon that you would like to talk to us about? / Is there a recent project that you did that you would like to talk to us about?

Yes, I am currently working on an album. Also, my new single ‘’Fake It’’, was released not too long ago on every music platform. There is going to be a visualizer on my IG and FB page.
