"I get respect without selling sex â€˜cause I can rhyme with the best of them,â€ exclaims Xplicit about her dual roles as lyricist and lusty model. Not that she has a problem differentiating the two jobs since the Motown maven has been steadily gaining a name from both on the net. "I kinda slowed down on the modeling because music is my first love,â€ the Midwest beauty admits. "I have a commercial look and I'm a pretty girl so why not use it to my advantage and gain exposure? Hey it got me this interview didn't it?â€
Excellent point, but just like her talent for being blatantly observant, we couldn't help but wonder the story behind her name. "I live up to the name,â€ she boasts. "Not because of sexual content, but because of lyrical content. Only the ones closest to me can say that I live up to my name sexually, â€˜cause a nigga will get it and want to wife me.â€ Damn, just when we were about to get on one knee.

What's your favorite body part and why? Lips â€˜cause without them no one could be heard.
McDonald's or Burger King? Burger King
Morning bird or night owl? Night Owl
Sleep or sex? Sexâ€¦then sleep.
Can you cook? If you can what's your specialty? If not, why? Yes I can cook! I'm Chef Girl R' Dâ€¦ my specialty is braised chicken marinated in cream of mushroom with grilled shrimp over white rice
Men must have this if they want to get with me? Personality â€˜cause I've got plenty of it. There is never a dull moment with me.
Ever had a one-night stand? Nah, not my style. Could have had one or two but they always come back for more.
Have you ever told a lie? C'mon what kind of question is this? Hasn't everybody? I try to tell it like it is, but I have a kind heart and try to avoid hurting people feelings with the truth sometimes.
If I ruled the world, I wouldâ€¦ "Free all my sonsâ€¦â€ Oh, I thought you meant finish Lauryn Hill's chorus [laughs]! Nah, I would sit on my ass all day and have people work for me! I wouldn't need anything else â€˜cause I rule worldâ€¦duh!
Doing this will get you cutâ€¦ Messing with my family, my man, or my money! I don't play â€˜bout my bread! I will cut you.
Lights on or lights off? Lights on. Don't talk to me â€˜til the lights come on in the club or we get outside the club so I can see what I'm getting myself into. Lights out in the boudoir!
The biggest misconception about me isâ€¦ That I'm mean, but I'm not mean at all. Once you get to know me, I'm actually pretty silly. But people tend to judge me.
Tell us something your parents don't know about youâ€¦ My parents know everything about me â€˜cause I'm not a complex person. Anything that they don't know is too bad for me to air my dirty laundry, and take the risk of them finding out [laughs].
Preferred type of underwear? Tangas! Those are the lace boy shorts that come from Victoria's Secret.
How should a man step to you? Proper! Come correct. Don't come with the "aye baby" or the "sup ma." Just say, "excuse me can I talk to you for a minuteâ€ and you'll get my attention. The wack ass pick-up lines are played, too. Just be yourself and if I'm interested, we'll talkâ€¦if I don't have a man. But if I'm not, I'll politely smile in your face tell you I'm taken and keep it moving.
