Interview: Caddy Pack

nikkisiixx interviews caddy pack

After Caddy Pack’s GOOD mixtape release and her music video entitled KANYE, I decided to get to know Caddy Pack a little bit better. We discuss her collaboration with Waka Flocka Flame, being a female rapper in Germany, her cat obsession, and what’s in store for her in 2016.

caddy-pack-kanyeNIKKISIIXX: What inspired your stage name Caddy Pack?
CADDY PACK: I came up with the name Caddy Pack when I first started rapping at the age of 14. Back then everyone was mentioning Cadillac cars in their songs and I thought Cadillac were so cool! So I changed the spelling a bit and kept Pack because that’s my last name and my stage name was set! Ever since that, I just stuck to it and never changed it.

NIKKISIIXX: What was the experience like working with Waka Flocka Flame on “I BET SHE GO” track?
CADDY PACK: A great experience! I have been able to open up for two of his shows in Germany and he’s such a cool guy. Opportunities like this mean a lot to me, they make me really thankful and motivate me to keep going.

NIKKISIIXX: Who do you think will appreciate your music?
CADDY PACK: I think anyone who likes to have a good time and party will enjoy my music. People that like hearing unusual beats for a change will appreciate because over the time, I’ve noticed my music is everything other than mainstream and kind of drifts off the typical “club bangers” you hear in clubs and the radio. But also especially women or female rappers, because we have a lot in common!

NIKKISIIXX: How’s the music scene out there in Germany?
german-flag-germany-map-germany-flag-animationCADDY PACK: Music with German lyrics has been getting more and more popular the last couple of years. Before that songs in German would barely be played or even made at all and mainly just the focus on music in English. What is very popular here is Pop, EDM and House/ Dance type of music. The most popular rappers played on the German radio are Pitbull, Flo Rida and Macklemore and singers like Adele, Beyonce, Madonna, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are played a lot! The Music scene in the clubs are totally different than what is played on the radio. Depending on the club and the area music varies! For instance in northern Germany they play a lot of RnB and Old school Hip Hop in the clubs but in southern Germany they play real Rap and Trap music.

Screen Shot 2015-12-30 at 1.41.42 PMNIKKISIIXX: According to your Instagram, you’re a cat lover! Lovely Persian! Why did you choose a cat over a dog?
CADDY PACK: Yes my Persian cat Chocolate! He’s 10 years old and I’ve had him ever since he was a baby kitten! I chose a cat over a dog because I was 16 when I decided to get a pet. My mom wouldn’t allow a dog back then… Now that l’m moved out though, I still wouldn’t be able to have a dog because I wouldn’t have the time to take care of him as I work every day from morning to evenings. It would be sad having a dog that basically stays in the house all day… they need to be taken on walks and have enough time outside, run and all those things. So I simply don’t have the time to keep a dog since it requires much more time than having a cat.

Caddy_Pack_Waka_Flocka_Flame_Mello_Charmillz_Yo-front-largeNIKKISIIXX: After the success of your GOOD Mixtape? What is Caddy Pack currently working on?
CADDY PACK: I’ve recently worked on a song with my old guitar teacher Jan Lindqvist. He was recording an Album and asked me to be on one of his songs. His song is called “Here We Go” and its a typical blues song that I’ve added some rap onto. Sounds pretty cool and I’m always happy to try out new things and not just be glued to one music genre. It´ll be available in January 2016!

NIKKISIIXX: Your three goals for 2016:
CADDY PACK: 1. Release A New Mixtape 2. Perform in California 3. Meet great people/ Have New Opportunities

NIKKISIIXX: What would you say from your experience being a female rapper to help motivate other upcoming female rappers?
CADDY PACK: Never give up or let other people influence you in a bad way. I have had people try to tell me who to work with and what songs to preform or what songs to make. Always stick to what you truly want because that way you’ll be able to give 100% to everything you do! Be confident and authentic! Set a goal and keep it in mind, that always helps motivate! You don’t have to reduce yourself to sex or a sexy image, Missy Elliott is one of my biggest influences and she is really the best example of a hard working female rapper that made it with talent, creativity, and her overall very individual music and videos.

NIKKISIIXX: I’m really into the comic/geek world. Say if you had a super power and became a super hero. What would be your super power and what would be your super hero name? And would you be a Marvel or DC Comics Character?
marvel-logoCADDY PACK: Interesting question I’ve never been asked before! Of course I’d like to have as many powers as possible and its hard to choose! but if I had one super power it would be the ability to control the elements fire, water, air, earth. Something like Storm from X-Men would be cool! So in that case definitely a Marvel character overall I’m more of a Marvel fan! Its hard for me to think of a good name but maybe “Raven Snow” would be cool!

NIKKISIIXX: LAST WORDS
CADDY PACK: I really had fun with this interview and thank you for your time and interest! Thanks so much and have a great start in 2016! Stay tuned for new music and projects by following the links below.

This concludes my interview with Caddy Pack! Don’t hesitate and check out her music, and be in store for new music for the new year. Don’t forget to follow Caddy Pack on all social media outlets.

Mixtape Review: Caddy Pack – GOOD

Caddy_Pack_Waka_Flocka_Flame_Mello_Charmillz_Yo-front-large


As Caddy Pack makes her debut on NikkiSiixx with her visual to her lead single KANYE, I bring you an exclusive review on her GOOD Mixtape. The twelve track project presents us with different styles to Caddy Packs rhymes. She has the capability to rap fast and on beat. Caddy Pack’s GOOD Mixtape also has features from Waka Flocka Flame, Mello Charmillz, and Young KB. Caddy Pack has impeccable punchlines, that she presents her self with an innovative style to her flows. Caddy Pack should be considered a gem since its rare to find a female artist in her parts of the world. She is always opened to new ideas, especially when it comes to working with music producers from a different range of genres. Caddy Pack is able to write her own rhymes and you might even catch her singing a hook or two. My favorite tracks off the GOOD Mixtape are I Bet She Go, Money In My Pocket, Hustle Grind, Cookies and Bass, and KAYNE.

caddy-pack-websiteI BET SHE GO This track continues off the GOOD Intro. Caddy Pack brings that club-crunk vibe along side Atlanta Artist Waka Flocka Flame. She rips it with her fast rhymes while giving us something to bump to.

MONEY IN MY POCKET Is such a fun song! Caddy Pack goes in what she does with the money in her pocket. “IF I LIKE IT. THEN I ROCK IT. I GOT MONEY IN MY POCKET“..its super catchy. I even like how Caddy Pack adds the aggressive growl/roar to the hook. Who wouldn’t want to use their money on things that they want.

HUSTLE GRIND Caddy Pack was able to engage the trap sound that HUSTLE GRIND brings to the table. Also, on the track is with Switzerland Artist Mello Charmillz. I think they both should make more music together. I really like how the song came out as a whole.

COOKIES AND BASS Caddy Pack experiments in the world of EDM with the production that brings us some electronic sounds and some heavy bass. The electronic sounds remind me of an old arcade game sounds (8bit). Caddy Pack takes a witty approach with what she has to say. You can find the visual to this video on her youtube channel: CADDY PACK.

KAYNE represents the person you want to be, someone whose successful and truly believes in themselves. The Beat was produced by Tuny Chris and the video was directed by Marco Giglio. For the track KANYE, I find the hook to be very catchy! This song makes you feel unstoppable. This song is meant for the ones who are confident and are ready to take over the world. Watch now the music video for KAYNE via NikkiSiixx.

Surprisingly, Caddy Pack is only 4’9 Tall but she can fill a room with her energy. Which will leave a fascination with the audience. She gets hundreds of people to call and response to her and her songs even though many hear them for the first time. Until now she has had shows over all Germany and is ready for her international breakthrough. Be on the lookout, I’ll be doing an interview with Caddy Pack soon. And don’t forget to follow her on all her social media links.

Music Video: Dynasty – Street Music featuring DJ Premier

Queens-bred hip-hop/soul artist, Dynasty released this music video with DJ Premier called STREET MUSIC. I love the vibe of this track. Dynasty’s voice is angelic to hip-hop ears. Love her flow and presence on the beat. Definitely felt that this track is a great way to introduce yourself to Dynasty. She compliments the beat that Hip-Hop Legend DJ Premier created and did some dope cuts on it too. An organic collaboration amongst the two, showcases in STREET MUSIC.

Pretty dope looking at Dynasty’s performance record; opening up for Erykah Badu, The Wu-Tang Clan, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and others. In 2013, the DREAMPUSHER that is D.Y. Accomplished a seven-city Dreampusher Tour in Germany, followed by an album release, an East Coast tour (US) and another European tour at the end of the year. You can tell she’s motivated. Promoting working hard in making your dreams come true to juveniles in detention centers. Showing us she does have a heart <3, and that she truly cares, what an amazing women. Wishing nothing but the best for this upcoming starlet in 2014. VIDEO DETAILS: Directed by: Dustin Devars TWITTERFACEBOOK
