Trillary Banks Says U.K. Female Rappers Need More Investment To Break America  

During a recent interview, Trillary Banks spoke on the lack of opportunity for female rappers in the U.K. and why they struggle to break the U.S. market compared to their male counterparts. “I don’t think there is enough representation but whether there will ever be, probably not. It’s not that there’s never going to be equal female rappers and males in the scene,” she explained. “I just don’t think that’s ever going to happen.” 

She continued, “One of the hardest things about blowing up in America is if you’re not from America and you don’t have any strong links there it doesn’t happen overnight unless you do an American song or sound. We just need more investment,” said Trillary. “We need more labels who are willing to really get behind this and start pushing us into that market and networking. A lot of majors look after people over there as well, we’ve seen it slightly with the UK guys that have tried that. With the women it’s kind of yet to happen unless it’s like Jorja Smith or Ella Mai or someone who’s really already big.”
