The first ever Miss Rap Supreme is Rece Steele.
“It’s crazy cause I was actually there for the tapping of [the finale] and the consensus overall was that Byata won on the 16 verse, which was surprising because we thought Reece was going to win,” Wilson recalled. “When they did their song, we felt Byata would have an advantage because she worked with a live band before, but when it was Reece’s turn there was a certain part of her performance where she just blacked out and I think the crowd connected better with her hook. She kind of won over the audience and that’s how we ultimately made our decision.”
Although she ultimately lost the competition, Byata took her defeat in stride.
“I think that the judges have been fair,” Byata told SOHH. “I’ve been watching the show and reading comments like people thought for the video, the other team should of won. But when I think about the things the judges said and how things were, I think they made the right decision.”
“It was close,” Wilson explained. “There was a little drama behind the scenes because Missy felt Byata overall was essentially the better artist. She really felt Byata should win even though she admitted that her hook wasn’t as good as Reece Steele. But, you know it’s not the “Missy Elliott Show,” it’s “ego trip’s Show.” It was close, but Reece really won over the crowd at the end and I felt like she grabbed it.”
The runner up isn’t letting the lost stop her dream. Busy working on her solo debut, Byata, is currently fielding inquiries from a few indies with major distribution. The rapstress expects to make a decision on her future in about a month.
“I think [Reece and Byata] both have a lot of talent, but they’re very distinctively different artists,” Wilson clarified. “With Reece, it’s like any kind of hardcore MC, you may try and peg on the person and say ‘they can’t make hit records,’ but there’s a lot of layers to Reece. I don’t think that it’s just complete surface [with her]. On one end she’s a better battle rapper than Byata, but she’s [also] very perceptively clever in a lot of ways and she could develop and make hit songs as well.”
“Now, it’s official,” he concluded, “Reece is our winner and now VH1 can cut her check. She’ll get $50,000 after taxes or something like that.”
The film follows four African-American Buffalo soldiers of the 92nd Infantry Division who get trapped in a a small tuscan village on the Gothic Line during the Italian Campaign of World War II. The film deals with the Sant’Anna di Stazzema massacre perpetrated by the Nazis in retaliation to Italian partisan activity. There is also a reference to a sculpted head from Ponte Santa Trinita in Florence that acts as a plot device.
