Back to Player ** *** Since her first gig a few years ago, this Seattle native has been making inroads in the music industry. A fan favourite on the Reverbnation website, Lady 6 has a total of nearly 15 000 fans and an artist rating at number 16 in Seattle – no mean feat for an up-and-coming artist. Her track “Word To Me” is a particular favourite amongst listeners, with the rapper’s frank, tell-it-like-it-is lyrics resonating with fans. She goes under the aliases Lady 6, Lil Miss Fly 6 and Royal Flyness but her sound is unmistakable – daring, honest and unique. Take a peek at her YouTube channel to find a collection of her emceeing skills. The petite rapper is a favourite at reggae, rap and ska events, evident in the numerous guest spots she has landed thus far. Her lyrics are raw and candid as she speaks her mind over slick, urban beats. And whether she is collaborating with another artist or flying solo, Lady 6 tells her story with passion and conviction. Check out live renditions of her popular tracks like Slap This Slap That as well as a behind-the-scenes clip of the rapper behind the mic in studio. Her album Daily Slapptivities is a 14-track collection produced in collaboration with Crown P. Productions and was released in October 2011. Featuring standout tracks like Get Rich List, Crazy Reckless Asain and Hustle Hard, the album’s sound is undeniably Lady 6. Not to be confused with the New Zealand outfit Ladi6, this American ingénue is well on her way to rap stardom. And it seems that the sky is the limit for this emerging artist.
