In Miami, hip-hop heads hear the name “Supa Cindy” and instantly think of 99 JAMZ’s perky morning anchor who rocks the airwaves in between the Rickey Smiley Morning Show while keeping listeners updated with the latest in entertainment news and music. Now, thanks to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, “Supa Cindy” has become a new way to describe a gorgeous woman who’s on her grind.
“This song was long awaited,” Supa Cindy said with excitement a couple weeks ago at the track's listening party. “I’ve known Ross for ten years, and for him to say, ‘Supa, I want to do a song to show you love and call it 'Supa Cindy'' — come on! I’m just excited and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
Rozay gathered MMG’s hometown artists, DJ Sam Sneak and Scrilla, to create a new vibe based on everything about the Haitian & Dominican radio personality from 99 JAMZ. On Wednesday, September 28, Supa Cindy, who was born Cindy Doucet, hosted a private listening session prior to the official release of the single that bears her name. Cindy premiered the song for a handful of the tri-county area’s top-notch DJs, like A Fly Guy, Stevie J, and DJ Meat just to name a few.
Several local rappers were in the building to show Supa Cindy some love like Ball Greezy, and the man behind the catchy hook of the song, Scrilla. The “Fork In The Pot” rapper sat alongside Cindy as she premiered their song for the first time. Rick Ross and Sam Sneak couldn’t make it, but Rozay made sure to send over enough Wing Stop wings, Checkers burgers, and Belaire Rosé for everyone in the building.
The song dropped via Empire Records, a company that recently struck a distribution deal with Doucet. “Supa Cindy” will be the first record to be released through her new media imprint, CinD Media, which will open the doors for local artists on the rise in Miami. Although she doesn’t rap on the song herself, Cindy jests that she’s on the hunt for a ghostwriter to help her out with the remix to the record.
“Supa Cindy” featuring Rick Ross, Scrilla, and DJ Sam Sneak is available on her website now. Check out the single below.
