Back in March, I had the chance to speak with aspiring Christian singer/rapper Margaret "Butta MD" Deloach about her “We Are Warriors; We Made It” T-shirt campaign and upcoming EP, We Made It; Da Nu Norm, which were both created in honor of her mom, Gloria.

During the heart-touching conversation, Butta opened up about the relationship she shared with her mother, participating in cancer support groups at The Jones Clinic with her, and the last days they enjoyed together before she passed in August 2013.

Butta also talked about her upcoming EP, which is scheduled to drop in June, and revealed how her mom's cancer battle inspired the project. She serenaded some of her track "Warrior" and shed a few tears while reminiscing about her mom during the interview, as well.

Betty Doizer of The Jones Clinic, the only independent oncology clinic in the region, also participated in the interview. Dozier reflected on the friendship she developed with Gloria while assisting her at The Jones Clinic and the thoughtful personality she had.

Yvonne Gamblin of Vision317 Productions captured footage of the interview. Check it out below.
