If you don’t know about Maiya The Don, prepare yourself to be hearing a lot more of this name moving forward. Her song “Telfy” caught the ears of many when it went viral late in 2022 – hints of NY drill mixed with braggadocious bars, in true NY hip-hop fashion. Maiya’s come-up has been an interesting one, as her personality being at the forefront drew in hundreds of thousands of followers across social media before she ever started her rap career – one she says she feels has really only been going on professionally for about 4 months. That same personality oozes through her music, and will surely keep her ascending into stardom at a rapid pace as she continues to connect with her fans.
We talked about a lot in this interview – seeing a moose for the first time, Maiya being in the process of finishing college, her process when she steps into the studio, and so much more. Check it out, below.
