BLUEPRINT

Blueprint was born and raised in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and recently moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Blueprint was always surrounded by music. Her brother was an artist and she often found herself at his studio sessions as a child. At the time, however, she didn’t enjoy being in the studio because it felt forced, and she hadn’t quite discovered music would become her passion as well. By the time she was a teenager, her brother had shown her most of the ropes around the studio and she took interest in being an artist herself. Her journey as a lyricist began with spoken word poetry, and by the time she entered high school she was known as “the rapper.”

The name Blueprint carries a lot of meaning behind it and is derived from scripture. Jeremiah 29:11 mentions how God has a plan for everyone’s life, and a plan is essentially a “blueprint.” God’s plan took her to Grand Rapids where she was able to have a fresh started and ended up meeting Replay, her first engineer who allowed her to be experimental and find her sound. Her transition to Michigan wasn’t smooth, however. She had first moved with her mother, and after a year they became homeless. Blueprint has overcome many obstacles, among homelessness, bullying, and hateful opinions. These things are often difficult to deal with, but music has saved her and allowed her to fully express herself in dealing with the emotions each situation brings.

When it comes to her music, Blueprint is extremely lyrical and her music is full of substance. Getting her start in poetry allowed her to develop a certain skillset within writing, being able to build layers into her lyrics. Her music is an expression of her pain and emotions dealt with in life and on a day-to-day basis. She keeps it real and isn’t interested in creating something purely because it is catchy. As a female artist, Blueprint feels she is set apart due to her lack of sensual content and disinterest in the sexualization of herself and her music. She is coming into the industry purely off of her natural talent, lyricism, and dedication.

Currently, Blueprint is working on her mixtape “H.O.P.E (Hold On Pain Ends),” and has also recently released a single entitled “The 4th Quarter” on all platforms. She has a single “Can’t Believe It” produced by The Game and has been co-signed by artists such as Coi Leray, DC Young Fly, and Fat Joe.

Blueprint is working towards taking a stand for female artists in an industry dominated by men. She credits her mother with being one of her biggest inspirations and supporters through her journey as an artist. Outside of music, Blueprint is interested in fashion and hopes to start her own brand/clothing line in the near future.
