It’s been seven years since Kristinia DeBarge released her Island Def Jam debut Exposed. Now 25, the daughter of James DeBarge (of DeBarge fame) can be seen alongside Romeo Miller and Angela Simmons on WE tv’s reality series “Growing Up Hip Hop.”
She also recently dropped a new project called Thinkin Out Loud. The eight tracks include collaborations with West Coast MCs Iamsu! and Problem, who appears on the aptly-titled “Problem.” Over a trap beat, Kristinia keeps it real: “I’m a motherfu**in’ problem / Won’t find a real one like me,” she declares.
Listen to the premiere exclusively on Rap-Up and grab Thinkin Out Loud on iTunes.
