Royal T

At the young age of 21, Tanisha Downey had selected her life’s path and never giving up; at 25 she is still on it. Born in Nyack, New York and raised in Nanuet, New York, this suburban girl is no one to underestimate.
 

              In the spring of 2011, Tanisha graduated from Rockland Community College where she obtained her Associates degree in Communications and Media Arts with a Minor in Childhood Education.  Right out of high school she began to intern with celebrity publicist, Lynn Hobson of HobbieCom Public Relations in New York City. She had the opportunity of working with clients such as Platinum Rap Recording Artist, Juelz Santana, New York Times Best Selling Author Sister Souljah, Model & Actress Kimbella of Love & Hip-hop New York and assisting with events for the likes of Lisa Raye. This soon turned into a Full Time job traveling the world as a road manager for Model and Fitness Instructor Kaylin Garcia of Love and Hip Hop New York.

 Why the name Royal T? It was her first tattoo, and inspired by her sister. She wanted to get her name tatted at first but switched it up and got creative hence “Royalty” but the T is for her name, Tanisha. Her first recorded track was entitled “Big Neish” off of Rick Ross’s sizzling “BMF” hit single. Recording initially for fun, the recorded track garnered well over five hundred (500) YouTube Views in one day. Her whole town loved it.  Royal T has decided to throw her hat into the musical ring. As an up and coming Rap Artist she is currently in the studio working on her second project “In the Flesh” which will be available Fall 2015 via datpiff.com.  She dropped her first mixtape entitled “Underground Hero” which is available on datpiff.com, reverbnation.com and soundcloud.com. What is her style of Rap like? She has the flow like a dude from a female’s perspective. She’s raw and uncut and doesn’t give a “whaaat”, overall she’s “nice”. One of her goals includes trying her best to tone down the curse words, but when it comes to rapping it’s pretty hard. Her musical influences are her father, who DJs, her Sister (Tnyce), her cousin, (Stixx Dippa), Remy Ma; Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana (rappers).

ROYAL T:
I go by the name of Royal T , I am an upcoming female rapper from the 845, Rockland County !

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
When was it that you first realized you wanted to do this profession?


ROYAL T:
I realized I wanted this as a profession when I dropped my first mixtape and got amazing feedback. Everyone liked it and it motivated me to write more and to definitely start performing.


THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
How long have you been doing this?

ROYAL T:
I have been rapping since high school, like 2007 doing little freestlyes but I dropped my first mixtape in September 2013 which is when I say i began to take rapping serious. So 3 years. 

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
Who are your influences? 

ROYAL T:
One of my influences is definitely Juelz Santana , I was always a huge fan and began working with him in 2011 which made me appreciate his work ethic and made me love doing music more. Lauryn Hill is also a great influence because as a female artist she is just overall dope. 

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
What made you want to get into the business?

 

ROYAL T:
I began doing Publicity as an Assistant and working with models and different artist, authors etc. I love putting in work and networking and traveling. Theres so much money in this business , so why not use my talents to work towards my personal goals and career goals. 

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
What are you thinking about when working on a beat or developing a album?
 
ROYAL T:
I always think about what im going through and how i can turn it into bars. I think about which instrument on the beat im going to ride that matches my flow the best. I think i ride beats really well ️

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
Tell us what do you think listeners will get out of your music? 

ROYAL T:
My listeners will get real life outta my music . Hopefully things they can relate to because I am really just a regular chick that can really spit. I rap about my life and the things i like. 

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
What is the most difficult thing you had to endure in life?

ROYAL T:
Losing someone close to you is real, knowing you wont see that person again in "real life" can really mess you up. Losing my Grandfather was the worst

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
What is the most difficult thing you had to endure in the music industry?

ROYAL T:
The most difficult thing is really getting a strong team together. A group of people who really want to see you win and will contribute to your successes is really hard to come by. You have to find people who dont want your life and really genuinely support you. 

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
How does it feel to  finally getting your break?

ROYAL T:
I loveeee performing and hearing feedback. Just knowing that someone I dont know loves my music and knows who I am feels amazing.  

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
What do you hope to do with your music? 

ROYAL T:
If i can perform all over the word I would be so satisfied. I want my music to prosper in all aspects. Whatever happens, happens. 

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
If there was one thing about your career that you would change right now, what would that be?

ROYAL T:
I would change the fact that I have missed out on some opportunities. Probably would have took more chances and not have been so shy when I first realized I had the talent. 

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
When everything is all said and done, what would you like your fans to say about you and what you brought to the table?

 

ROYAL T:
I want my fans to appreciate my work ethic. I know nothing comes easy or is handed to you which is why I work for mine. I want them to enjoy my music and just always support me and the things I got going on because I am not going to stop! 

 

THE KINGS ACES MAGAZINE:
