"I think a good artist is able to articulate the human experience. I love to turn up, so I’m going to make turn up music. I love to talk about my hopes and my dreams, so I’m going to do that in my music. I love to fight for what I believe in, so I’m going to do that....
I think as an artist, we have a greater responsibility to leverage our access to power folks who don’t have that same access."
--Malcolm London

Dodd was the 2016 STL Underground Music Awards 'Artist of The Year' as well as the first woman to take home 'Artist of The Year' in the history of the SlumFest Stl.
Dodd is the Co-Founder of Femcee Nation Organization, which helps female artists get their due. 

Her latest release, "For Colored Folk" went on to win 'Album of the Year' in the 2017 SlumFest Music Awards. 

The Riverfront Times on Bates' latest release:
“For Colored Folk is a navigation through spiritual, social and political minefields — a crossroads of intersectional issues that she attacks head-on while aiming straight for the gut. Throughout its fifteen cuts, Bates never meets the audience halfway. Not a single track comes sugar-coated, and she spits with a brash vibe that respects the time and intelligence of her peers and fans alike.” 

“In every movement, you have to unify the oppressed before you can make any change.” --Bates
