A natural performer, LiL MC stands out on stages with dynamic delivery and sassy wit. This paired with her freestyle rap skills got her recognized quickly after she started performing in 2010 by competing as one of the only women on the local rap battle scene and going on to become a rap battle champion.
Since then, she's expanded her musical craft from rapping and song-writing to develop her talents in singing and music production, making her one of the 2% of women music producers. Now, she's teaching beat-making to hundreds of students in collaboration with Oakland Based non-profit, Hip Hop for Change. This work and her original Women’s Empowerment Hip Hop curriculum led to her contributing to Facebook's educational initiative, Beats Unlocked, a free program aimed at developing students' computer science skills through coding and beat-making.
LiL MC seeks to not just empower students, but women. She's the founder of Queens of the Underground, a quarterly all-women Hip Hop showcase that gives local artists opportunities to open for and network with more established artists. She also addresses misogyny head-on in her lyrics with bars like "my short skirt is not an invitation for your roofie." That lyric is from her single "OMG" which was selected to be part of the NBA2k21 video game soundtrack and the NBA Top Shot NFT Collection.
She’s shared stages with powerhouse underground female rappers like Sa-roc, Vel the Wonder, and Che Noir, and has opened for Bay Area legends Too Short, E-40, and Zion I. Her latest project “Riding the Pink Cloud” was featured on Billboard Hip Hop and her recent single “Energia Cabrona” has reached over 43k streams on spotify.
