Brianna Perry: "Rap City: Tha Basement is a big deal in hip-hop. It was just another outlet for music where musical artists [would] go through and visit the host. It was cool because when artists went to Tha Basement they would get to rap in the booth. It's pretty much just a freestyle thing, they play someone else's song and you just lay your verses over that.

"I got to go through the whole experience and get in the booth, and in the end of Best of the Booth, it would count down and play the best verse—mine made the list. Of course I was the youngest, and they talked about it in XXL magazine, which is cool. They just talked about how I blew them away, how I'm going to be somebody, and all that good stuff. It was an incredible experience."
