Amindi talks about growing up in Inglewood and attending high school in the Palisades, being voted “Most Likely To Be A Celebrity,” the pink race car bed in her first apartment, and performs “Cocoa Butter Shawty” live in studio
We sat down with Amindi, whose recently released tiny piece of perfection “minztape” made me an instant fan. I was sleep, turns out she had a big moment in 2017 with the release of her biggest song “Pine & Ginger” that got her signed to a major deal before she even graduated high school. Only problem was, “Pine & Ginger” was an outlier from most of the music she made. While she is the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, and grew up with dancehall rhythms coming from the speakers of her childhood, she doesn’t consider herself a dancehall artist.
After spending the last few years in writing camps, and in rooms with various producers, she’s fulfilled her label agreement and is back to writing and recording whatever she wants. With her new found agency, she’s ready to show the world who she is. Tune in to hear us talk about growing up in Inglewood and attending high school in the Palisades, being voted “Most Likely To Be A Celebrity,” and the pink race car bed in her first apartment.
