Kellee Maize-ing

Last night there was a live Pagan Centered Podcast recording with Kellee Maize, a female rapper who has a very Pagan-friendly message. We have a natural suspicion of anyone who reaches out to the Pagan community and that, combined with a typo in Kellee’s marketing, meant there some trepidation surrounding the interview. However, Kellee is an impressive lady and very genuine. The interview was excellent and I was especially impressed by her commitment to activism and her love for the city she lives in. Pittsburgh may not be my cup of tea but I appreciate someone who feels connected to the land they live on.

Kellee said she wrote this because she feels she has a genuine connection to Isis.

Kellee doesn’t claim the label Pagan but she is very grounded in earthy, alternative spirituality. The content of her music isn’t a pose but something organic and intrinsic in her life. Which is exciting because her Youtube videos have received over 2 million views and she has over 400,000 album downloads. She’s a rising star, she expresses views in her rhymes that Pagans can identify with and she’s a genuinely interesting person. I’m excited to watch her career develop and hope to be doing the dorky girl shuffle to her performance at a Pagan festival sometime in the future.

Check the pentacle in this video!

You can download her music for free by joining her mailing list at her website. Listen close to the lyrics. There’s a lot of substance flowing with those beats.

Language warning on this video but I really like the message of the song.

Polytheistic Wiccan initiated into the Ravenwood tradition, she has many opinions. Some of them are actually useful.

    I have to say, and I know I said it last night after the recording stopped, that I was really impressed with her last night. I know I have personal issues with Isis, and work much more with her sister. But hearing the explanation of how she came to Isis, as well how much she understood the balance of both halves instead of looking at Isis as just the loving mother that it seems the mainstream view her as…I was impressed and I have a new respect for her as well as her music.

    And even on some of the harder questions people asked, she was on the ball. I may not like hip hop much…even though that Third Eye song gets stuck in my head like you wouldn’t believe….but she is one cool chick.

      I also found her genuine and open. It was a good interview!

      Thank you for your work here, Kellee!

      A small suggestion: when you were talking about the Steelers, and Star mentioned she’s a devotee of the Greek smith-god Hephaistos, and you said that you didn’t have a specific goddess in mind for the Steelers–may I therefore suggest you look into Brigid (also spelled Brigit, Brighid, Brighit, Bríg, and Bríd, amongst other possibilities), an Irish goddess who does many different things, but smithcraft is one of them.

    I listened also. I would like to point something out that we might not be thinking of. My opinion of Kellee, was established without me even knowing who or what she was. In fact, at first I thought “Kellee Maize” was a “NEW” term used by a few people. I even made a sound byte, so I could click a button and hear the term, “Kellee Maize”.
    The point to this writing is to make it known, this small community of pagans have done something truly magical as far as I am concerned. Between Kellee herself and the crew at PCP, you have all set forth an awesome example, of how people everywhere and all walks of life really need to be. Instead of maintaining a negative perception of each other, you BOTH came together, and acted human. I applaud all of you for not only showing the rest of the human race how we “TRULY” should be with each other, but you have shown us all, that there is hope for us all.
    Thanks for this huge inspiration. I for one shall cherish it.
