AllHipHop.com has an interview with Dawn Richard. They discuss her background, "Making the Band," how she and Kalenna work with Diddy in Dirty Money and more.

AllHipHop.com: Now youíre part of Diddy-Dirty Money with Kalenna Harper and Sean Combs. Does Diddy dominate his artists and their music like people say?

Dawn: Well you know, I donít think he ever had any women in a group with him. I canít think of anyone at the label who had that opportunity, so itís an interesting dynamic to see both sides of it Ė as his artist and being in his group. He is a man who has that reputation, but I think that anyone who owns a label and is an artist can tend to have that reputation.

The reality is they have to make sure that theyíre pushing their product, because itís their product. But I think what Puff did this time Ė I think he even surprised himself with this Ė he got two women who are extremely opinionated and really have a strong passion in what they do. So itís kind of an interesting group because he has to humble himself sometimes, and he doesnít like it. [laughter] But when it comes to passion and the things that we say, when we have a good opinion, he respects it, and heís like, Ďdamn, I had to humble myself.í He hates to say that! [laughter]

But I think heís starting to appreciate the fact that he is good at finding talent, and he has to believe in the talent that he picks. So Kalenna and I sort of force the hand at making him appreciate a powerful woman, which is hard for him. I think when he had his girls, it changed his whole perspective anyway. Iím the type of person where I Ďm not gonna bow down, you know? I make sure I give him my opinions respectfully, and I understand that itís his project and his label. He understands that this is what I love to do, and that Iím an asset to this thing. I think thatís why Dirty Money has been successful so far.

The last few months have been a little crazy and, as such, we have been focusing on high level stories - or stories that happened to cross my desk - here at Bad Boy Blog. At the same time, being a comprehensive source, I at least wanted to summarize some of the stories that fell through the cracks during this time. Check out some of them below.

Vibe has an interview with Dawn Richard, touching on a myriad of topics, related to both Dirty Money and herself. This includes her decision to work with Diddy (and the comments people make about the man) and some insight into "A Tell Tale Heart," her mixtape that will be released tonight.

You and this music thing are going strong. Tell me about the upcoming mixtape #ATellTaleHeart.

Iíve been in two groups, and Iíve done my duty in trying to be a team player. I love every minute of it and Iíve learned so much, but Iíve also gone through a whole lot these last four years. Iíve been homeless, Iíve been in a group, we did two platinum albums and then I lost my job. Our group dismantled, and I had to deal with that. I couldnít grieve because I had to find out how I was gonna eat. I was struggling to write, then I made Dirty Money and Dirty Money was in the studio for three years. I never got a chance to grieve, cry, smile, laugh or anything about the last four years of my life. Because Iíve been in a group, Iíve had to cater to everyone else. This mixtape is my diary. This mixtape is every tear that I was supposed to cry, every smile that I was supposed to make, every angry feeling that Iíve ever felt from the time I made the band to now, a lot of things that happned in my love life and everything I never got a chance to say. And thatís why I called it ATellTaleHeart because, if each one of you fell into my heart, the heartbeats would sound like these songs. Flaws and all, hereís my diary and accept it.

On Dawn Richard's site, you can listen to her remix of Dirty Money's "I Know," minus Diddy, Wiz Khalifa and Chris Brown. I am pretty sure Kalenna is on the track, though.
