Often, the R&B aspect of hip hop gets overlooked. Unless R&B singers have songs with rappers, their tracks tend to be passed over for more rap centric music. However, hip hop has gone through many shifts and R&B is next with Justin Timberlake having a strong return.

Sharee Fox is a big name in R&B, obviously not on the same level as Justin Timberlake, yet she is still a rising force. Originally from Philadelphia, Sharee Fox found a home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. A city best-known for introducing the world to J. Cole by way of Jay-Z, there is much more in the city.

Recently, Sharee Fox talked to Hip Hop Vibe about some of the projects she has in the works. A solo release is definitely in the works from her and Sharee Fox opened up on her inspiration. At the top of this list are such legends as Patti LaBelle and The Roots, along with many others.

How do you feel about such talents as Meek Mill putting the city back on the map? Meek Mill is cool, I believe he is very talented.

What led you to move down South to North Carolina? My father went into the Army, which led my family to move south. I have been in North Carolina since I was between five and six yrs old.

What has been your best experience with this rising label? Simply watching the growth of the label over the years. We’ve came a long way but still have a long way to go.

How do you feel about the success of your singles that have hit radio? I’m blessed that the singles are being accepted by the people. My goal is to reach the masses and introduce those very singles as well.
