The self proclaimed Queen of the South, Jacki-o, is looking to prove that she is much more than another female emcee looking to strike it rich by flaunting her sexuality. With her debut album Poe Little Rich Girl currently in stores, Jacki is out to tell the world that there is a new girl on the block. But who is Jacki-o? We have all heard the hit single "Nookie", but fans have still not gotten to know who Ms. Angela Kohn actually is. AllHipHop recently took some time out to get to know Jacki-O. In the interview below, Jacki talks about a variety of personal issues, ranging from her sexuality to hurricanes. So sit back and have some fun with the Madame of Miami.
AllHipHop.com: What does a normal day for Jacki-O consist of?
Jacki-o: I wake up at eight in the morning, and then I go to the gym and spend an hour and a half there. From there I go back home, eat lunch, get dressed for the day, and go to the studio. Even with the album finished, I still go to the studio, just to work and help other projects after mine. So I am in the studio for the remainder of the day, until around nine, when I usually go home. I then make my dinner and wait for the next morning to do it all over again. It’s kind of boring for the people reading this, but its not boring for me.
AllHipHop.com: What is your favorite chill out spot in Miami?
Jacki-0: Probably The Rolex. It’s a strip club, but it’s a club as well.
AllHipHop.com: Is that the hottest club in Miami right now?
Jacki-o: It’s the hottest club on the other side of the bridge. The bridge separates Miami from South Beach, and it’s the hottest club on the west side of the bridge.
AllHipHop.com: Since your first single was "Nookie", you know we have to talk about sex. So does Jacki-o ever have sex with groupies?
Jacki-o: No, I don’t.
AllHipHop.com: Does it piss you off that male emcees can go out and have sex with whoever they want and be praised for it, but if a female emcee did that, they would be criticized for it?
Jacki-o: No, I don’t think woman should go out and have sex with strangers. But a man can do that, because that is what they do, I guess. That is part of their fun, it’s part of being a man. But I don’t think a woman should go out and have sex with a stranger, whether he is a fan, groupie or whatever.
AllHipHop.com: What is your favorite sexual position?
Jacki-o: I don’t know, I would probably say missionary.
AllHipHop: How often do you have sex?
Jacki-o: I ain’t been getting none lately, so I can’t say.
AllHipHop.com: And why is that?
Jacki-o: Because I’m not in a relationship right now. But when I am, I would like to get it as often as possible.
AllHipHop.com: What is the craziest thing a guy has said or done to try and hook up with you?
Jacki-o: I’ll pay for it. (Laughter) That’s about the craziest thing, that he’ll pay for it.
AllHipHop.com: And what was your reaction?
Jacki-o: He was really just joking. So there was nothing to it, we just laughed. I don’t think he was serious, because you can’t put money on me. And I’m sure women do, but I don’t get into that.
AllHipHop.com: What is the sweetest thing a guy has ever done for you?
Jacki-o: The sweetest thing a guy has done for me is furnish my apartment. I went out of town and came back and everything in my apartment was brand new. Everything! From the sheets on the bed, to the things in the bathroom, to the television, everything was brand new. That was definitely the sweetest thing somebody has ever done for me.
AllHipHop.com: What is the key to maintaining a good relationship with Jacki-o?
Jacki-o: I’m a very private and discrete person, and whoever I’m with has to know that. You also have to be honest as well, but not too honest where he is saying, "Oh, your fat.” Not that type of honest, but honest in relationship talk. But overall, just treat me like a lady and do nice things for me.
AllHipHop.com: I see you have a couple of tattoos, so can you tells us what they are and the personal meaning behind them?
Jacki-o: They are all angels. I am a very spiritual person, I pray a lot and I believe that we all have angels that watch over us. So I wanted to get something to represent that, so I got all angels.
AllHipHop.com: How did you hook up with Ghostface for his album?
Jacki-o: I really don’t know. I was told that he had a song that everybody thought we would be hot on together. But I actually never met Ghostface, even to this day. But one of his managers brought the track over to the studio, so that’s how it went down. I wanted to do the track and we just did it.
AllHipHop.com: Has the barrage of hurricanes in Florida had a direct affect on you or your family the past months?
Jacki-o: No, because, all of my family lives here in Miami with me. So we have been getting a lot of rain, but not in this part of Miami. Miami is so big, so we haven’t been getting hit directly in my part of Miami since [Hurricane] Andrew.
AllHipHop.com: What is the main goal that you are looking to accomplish with this album?
Jacki-o: I want to take this s**t over! I want to let people know that there is a new girl in town and she ain’t playing. Poe Little Rich Girl is my first album, but it’s not to be taken lightly. I want people to respect my talent and for my fans to know that I feel them. There is something on the album for everybody though. It’s not just an all-street album, it’s not just a mainstream album, there is something for everybody.
AllHipHop.com: Anything else you have going on that you want fans to know about?
Jacki-o: I am working on another album called The Angela Kohn Album. I am half way through that now. But it’s going to be an LP with a lot of ballads and songs. It’s called alternative-hop. It’s Hip Hop mixed with alternative rock, so I called it alternative hop. So it’s a new sound and I hope people like it.
