In Jim Jones’ new video for his latest banger, “Everybody Jones,” amid the bevy of babes and model types stood out one stunning beauty who assisted Jimmy on the hook with an MC Lyte-inspired “funky fresh, dressed to impress, we at the party” ad lib. Hailing from the south side of Queens, New York, artist Nyemiah Supreme is a modern-day renaissance woman. Mixtape Daily caught up with Nyemiah and she talked about her rise as a rapper, her diverse talents and her already-solid connections with Dipset and G-Unit’s Tony Yayo.
Although she’s been grinding on her own, Nyemiah’s star-making turn as Jones’ capable co-star was born of an earlier working relationship with one of the Capo’s cohorts. “Actually, I used to work as an assistant for Juelz Santana and through him I met Jim Jones,” Nyemiah revealed. “I was around that whole movement, and Jones had me doing a couple of rap tracks that didn’t make the album, so he put me on that ad lib for ‘Everybody Jones.’ ” Nyemiah went on to say that she’s affiliated with the Dipset thanks to the Harlem crew’s ties with her management team, SlowBucks.tv, but overall she is an independent artist.
Visits to Nyemiah’s Tumblr site and YouTube page reveal more than just a beautiful woman who happens to rap. The sites show the drop-dead gorgeous Nyemiah practicing athletic dance moves and also gracing the runway in true top-model fashion. She revealed that her path to rap was preceded by her other passions. “I’m originally a dancer. I’ve been dancing since I was 7 years old,” Nyemiah shared. “I went on tour for the rapper Lil Mama a few years ago. I was touring with her and I was also dancing with Remy Martin. Modeling — I did some work with Patricia Fields and I did do freelance modeling work for my photographers that I know.” The leggy rapper also does college runway fashion shows in her spare time.
Nyemiah Supreme may wear many hats, but she admits freely that being a rapper is more her focus. “Rapping has just totally taken over [so] that I don’t have time for any of the other things that I like to do,” she said. Her debut mixtape, Limited Edition, released in conjunction with SlowBucks.tv, has slowly gained her some notoriety, plus a cameo from Tony Yayo on the track “Money” is certainly noteworthy. The soft-spoken and surprisingly humble Supreme says she’s working hard on her next project, and that fans can expect some great work from her in the future. “I want to get some visuals for some songs from my own current project and I want people to get to know me as an artist and not a feature. I’m working on a new mixtape, Supremacy, and it’s coming this summer for sure.” said Nyemiah, confidently.
