Jidenna even took Kaila to his mom's house in Boston to help move his home studio into the city. It was there that Kaila started learning the basics of audio, like how to wrap cables, which would inspire her to go on and get a degree in Recording Arts.

This is where she cultivated her leadership skills as well as her event curation skills, throwing Hip Hop in the Park - the longest running Hip Hop show in Northern, CA.

KAILA LOVE TAUGHT A CLASS AT UC BERKELEY ON TUPAC & HIP HOP

UC Berkeley has a unique program called DeCal (Democratic Education at Cal) which allows a student to teach any topic if they get a faculty sponsor. The Tupac DeCal was a legacy course at UC Berkeley, and was so controversial when it was launched in 1997, that it was featured on Fox News covered by Bill O'Reily. Kaila Love built upon the tradition of the course to not just cover Tupac's life, but also the evolution of Hip Hop, and teaching students the basics of rapping.

Kaila Love both Performed in & Directed the Vagina Monologues

After being inspired by a fellow student in her Poetry for the People Class at UC Berkeley, Kaila went on to audition for the Vagina Monologues. The theme of the show was "race, culture, and ethnicity" and she was cast to perform an original piece about her struggles with racial ambiguity. Finding the power in creating with a group of all-women, Kaila wanted to continue her involvement with the Vagina Monologues and was cast as Director for the following year. UC Berkeley is the largest college production of the Vagina Monologues in the US.

Staying true to the mission of ending violence against women, Kaila Love became a certified sexual assault counselor through the non-profit, Bay Area Women Against Rape (BAWAR).

Now, she uses this knowledge to provide support and resources for her work helping women in the music industry.

KAILA LOVE IS A FREESTYLE RAP BATTLE CHAMPION

Though retired from battle rap now, Kaila Love began competing in competitions after her good friend, Max AKA Pro2Col, was senselessly killed in 2014. She had always attended his rap battles, but never had the courage to participate herself. After his death, she felt she needed to represent him and the mental barrier that was once there, was lifted. Kaila competed as the only woman for several years, before another female rapper, LiL MC, hit the scene. Kaila Love and LiL MC have continued their friendship ever since, and founded Queens of the Underground, an all-women Hip Hop showcase and professional development platform for women musicians.
