This Jacksonville Florida born emcee got her start in hip hop music after her family moved to the Hampton Roads Area in Virginia Beach, VA.
When other girls her age were playing with Barbi Dolls and “Easy Bake Oven’s”, she began sharpening her keen ear for music when she used to make up impromptu songs to her father’s guitar playing. Along with her older brothers, she would often to listen to hip hop greats such as Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick and EPMD just to name a few.
This gave her a strong foundation that would later serve her well when it came to crafting metaphors, similes, and thesaurus scrolling wordplay. Her love for MC Lyte’s “Lyte as a Rock” video, as well as other notable female emcees of the past like Roxanne Shante, Nikki D & Antoinette, would let her know that being an unstoppable estrogen filled force behind the microphone was completely possible.
She also kept her love for singing, inspired by the early 90’s R&B artist such as En Vouge, Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige. This would make her a triple threat in terms of emceeing, singing and songwriting.
Between 1997-2003 she joined forces with an all female hip hop group called "Gypcees".They opened up for a wide array of major artist from Wyclef, Redman and the Roots. Shortly after they disbanded, she relocated to Atlanta, GA and is currently recording new projects and delving more into production.
