3 Questions With: Jessica Drake, Porn Star and Rap Fan

Cause magazines can’t even do the trick/I guess I have to watch me a porno flick” — Too Short

Jessica Drake is a legendary bisexual pornographic actress appearing in over 250 adult films and is one of the most recognized figures in adult entertainment today.  Her success has even taken her past the realm of porn and into popular culture.  She’s also made numerous mainstream appearances, one of the most notable being in Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s “Telephone” music video.

Porn and hip-hop have a long lasting relationships. This year’s AVN Awards (the Oscars of porn) takes place on January 19, and rapper Tyga is nominated for his work on the film, Rack City XXX: The Movie. It is only right that AllHipHop.com speak with one of rap’s biggest supporters who also happens to be a porn superstar.

And although Jessica was tight-lipped about answering certain questions (see below), she did open up about feature dancing to “Put it in Your Mouth,” her favorite rappers, and Hip-Hop’s connection with the porn industry.

AllHipHop.com: How does a Hip-Hop beat affect your feature dance performances differently than say Motley Crue’s “Girls, Girls, Girls”?

Jessica Drake: It all depends on the club and the audience.  I tend to have a few options for each themed show I do as a feature entertainer.  Some clubs are a bit more conservative, maybe an older clientele.  At these bookings I go with music they can relate to, whatever that is.  I find that incorporating Hip-Hop into my shows at certain clubs, or at certain times of the night, gets the crowd worked up even more.  I’ve had an entire club singing along to “Put it in Your Mouth” by Akinyele.  Even if the song doesn’t exactly match the costume I’m in, I’ll do it for the crowd response.

Who are your favorite rappers?

Eazy-E, Pac, B.I.G., Jay-Z, and Kanye.  Honorable mentions are Lil Kim, Lil Wayne, Nas, and Dr. Dre.

Hip-Hop and porn have a long history of crossing paths.  And this year, Tyga is performing at the AVN Awards and his film, Rack City: The XXX Movie, also has three nominations.  Why do you think Hip-Hop gets into bed with the adult entertainment industry as often as it does?

I think that, at times, Rock and Roll and Metal have also been a huge part of porn as well, but these days the trend seems to be Rap/Hip-Hop.  The fact that there are gorgeous, scantily-clad girls in most Hip-Hop music videos shows that sex sells…so why not take that second step towards an obvious partnership?  It’s a match made in Heaven.

Jessica Drake is a contract star for Wicked Pictures, a pornographic film studio, which has received numerous nominations for the 2013 AVN Awards.
