Nitty Scott, MC has been keeping busy. Fresh off a trip to Switzerland where she shared the stage with the likes of Ice Cube and Yassin Bey for the Royal Arena Festival, she’s looking forward to her next endeavor. Nitty’s debut project,The Boombox Diaries Vol. 1, dropped last night, and she hopes it will show listeners how much she's grown as an artist.

“I didn’t want it to be a compilation of tracks that I just slapped onto a project,” she said. “I wanted it to be a good, fluid listen where you can roll your blunt, hop in your car, and drive down the highway and never have to skip a track. I wanted it to be a real experience.”

We got a preview of the EP when she released “Flower Child” with Kendrick Lamar last week. Shortly after, we sat down with Nitty Scott at her favorite Japanese restaurant in Brooklyn to discuss The Boombox Diaries Vol. 1. Read on for her words on the EP’s concepts and how the project came together.
