Let's focus our attention away from Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, and Nicki Minaj and focus on some talent. I'd like to feature an emcee that I stumbled upon last week. I already love her! Here is her bio from her blog at http://turntabletendencies.com/nittyscottmc/
“Born in Michigan, made in Florida, paid in New York,” the lyrical femcee says of herself. Nitzia Scott was born in the midwestern city of Grand Rapids, Michigan to her Puerto-Rican mother and New Orleans-born African-American father, to whom she credits her diversity to.
At age 16, Nitty had already distributed mixtapes and compilations of her poetry recordings to local clubs and bars, major schools, clothing stores and retail shops in Central Florida, before relocating to New York in pursuit of a career in making hip-hop history.
Her years alone in the Big Apple transformed her from a teenager to a young woman, working tirelessly to establish herself as both an artist and an adult in an unfamiliar, competitive territory. She learned to creatively channel her experiences there into clever testimony, and developed artistically like never before.
With an impressive, well-rounded portfolio and a handful of odds and obstacles already overcome, Nitty Scott, MC is now under new management, preparing for her next move. She focuses on songwriting and trips to the studio, “the lab”, as she refers to it, and plans to work up a real buzz this year. Her debut independent music project is all in the works, from mixtapes to features to the upcoming Nitty Scott, MC blog.
Her mission statement remains as it always has, “to be apart of a movement and not an industry, to be socially responsible and charitable with her influence, to inspire art and educated listeners, to promote substance in mainstream entertainment, to be praised by critical acclaim, and to document an era via the written word.” Look out for Nitty Scott, MC, coming to a boombox near you !
We will be keeping you updated with all things Nitty Scott from here on out. You can follow her on twitter @NittyScottMC.
