Q: Talk about your latest project or single?
De’ja Mulan: My single that I have out is called “No Time ft. Kron” originally it was just a song we wrote and recorded in my house just to see how I would be as a recording artist. Once I started getting positive feedback, I decided to release it, and it became a success! The song inspired by the whole “independent women” movement.
Q: Do you support any other up and coming singers/rappers in your area? If so, what are they?
De’ja Mulan: I love supporting artists from the DMV because I feel like we don’t get the recognition we deserve.

We went to high school together, and she has always had the talent for singing.

De’ja Mulan: In the next couple of years, I see myself on bigger stages, award shows, and tours. I hope to have a few businesses under my belt as well.
