Lady Xplicit (l
As one of a small group of female emcees in San Diego, the Native community and in the wider United States, she represents Hip Hop with a rare and refreshing passion and focus. Fully and clearly defined Lady Xplicit is unreserved and powerful in her music. She incorporates her flow with a New West sound, a look and style like no other rapidly becoming the name in everyone's mouth.
Her advantage? It Comes Natural. In her younger years she and her late sister wrote rhymes and battled each other for fun. It wasn’t until 2004 that she actually stepped foot in a studio and shortly after received requests to be featured on projects. When her sister passed in 2005 she decided there was no reason for either of them to not make it to the top and took her skills to a more professional level.
She has been on a constant grind to let the world know she means business. In 2008 she began recording her first album. She released “It Comes Natural” in 2009 and followed with “Cali Girl” in 2010. Both albums sold out of physical copies at show and on tour sales. Both albums were nominated in the Native American Music Awards. Her single “Many Faces” from Cali Girl received a reward for “Best Hip Hop” in the 2011 Indian Summer Music Awards. To keep up with her fan’s demand of her music she released a promotional re-mix tape titled “Public Secret” in 2011. Between shows and features she is working on two projects set to release summer 2012. She has surpassed the idea of the music industry being a man’s world by stating “I can wear the pants but do it better in a skirt”. Her methods of doing business are readily observable but produce no carbon copy, just watch and learn.
She has worked with a long list of artist and DJ’s around the world and is also featured on projects with E40, Raekwon, Young Buck and Petey Pablo. Lady X has worked with Yahoo.com, Pepsi Cola, Imperfekshun Magazine, Jammin Z90, San Diego 6 news and with the Navajo Nation to promote safe sex awareness through her music. Her music has also landed her interviews with well-known companies such as World Tuned Radio, KWSO Groove Central, 99.9 KXTC Radio, The Monitor and The Navajo Times Newspaper.
Aside from her passion for music Lady Xplicit enjoys working with youth, especially in the impoverished reservations. Each year she commits herself to all age events, fundraising events and an online talk show “The Break” to stay in touch with the community. Today with gained experience her talents have afforded her the ability to perform for the San Diego PRIDE Fest and Navajo President Dr. Joe Shirley. She has opened for several mainstream artists such as Lil Kim, E-40 and Too Short.
Lady Xplicit tailors each of her performances to make each one unique as her music and audiences are. Her use of lyrics over bass infused beats is unreserved, leaving every sense stimulated. She interacts with the crowd and has experience with all crowds and age groups. Lady X never fails to bring a high level of quality and energy to the stage. Locally or worldwide, Lady X represents her life, her story and her community through her love of music. Explicitly yours, Lady Xplicit is giving you something you can feel.
