Tennessee rapper bbymutha shares the voices that have been formative to her past and present, from Future to Courtney Love.

The Chattanooga, Tennessee, rapper Brittnee Moore — better known by her moniker bbymutha — is one of the sharpest wordsmiths in music, rapping unabashedly about her experiences, desires and frustrations. Growing up, Moore was exposed to gospel and Christian music, thanks to her religious mother, and was also drawn to the likes of Erykah Badu. She began working with LSDXOXO in 2013, on a song entitled “Black Widow”; shortly after, she had her second set of twins (she’s the mother of two sets of twins). When the song took off, she decided to give her rap career a shot — she’s been making seismic music ever since, and two EPs later her debut album, Christine, is in the works. In this episode of Headphone Highlights, bbymutha shares the voices that have been formative to her past and present, from Future and Sade to Courtney Love and Lil Uzi Vert.
