In 2017, Baltimore rapper Deetranada starred in season 3 of the Lifetime reality series The Rap Game, and finished in second place. Her appearance on the show, hosted by Jermaine Dupri, “introduced the world to a tough-talking teen with bars to “back up her confidence,” writes NDSmith of The Source.
In a 2016 interview with Lawrence Burney in True Laurels, Deetranada said “I knew I had a gift with words when I started getting in trouble for speaking my mind without being disrespectful or explicit, but simply for the fact I was speaking the truth that a certain group of people didn’t want to hear. That’s when I realized that rapping was what I wanted to do.”
Name: Diamond Barmer
Stage Name: Deetranada
Birthday / Sign: June 25th, 2001. I’m an emotional-ass cancer! I’m not really big on zodiac correlations but after doing research, it all makes sense.
About Me: I’m a rapper. I can’t really tell you what TYPE of rapper I am because I love experimenting with different dimensions of the genre.
Wearing: My leather outfit was from Dollskill (probably my favorite store right now), the jacket was from Forever 21 I believe, and my shoes were a gift from my mother. I believe she got them from Leather Man in Eastpoint Mall. All the jewelry I have on is actually jewelry I’ve had since I was a baby. My mom recently found them in an old lockbox and I thought it would be cute to throw on.
