Guyana is signed to B Major Music Group, and has been grinding in the studio on her first mixtape that just dropped called Princess Guyana-The Broke Bitch, and is also working hard on her first album. I think she kills it in this freestyle video. I like the aggressiveness she brings, and I’m curious to see what the future has for this hop hop sweetheart.
This solo artist didn’t ride solo. Rap artist Princess Guyana first started off in female R&B group, toured Europe, and then later decided to join an all female Hip Hop group all before making the move to do on her own thing.
Princess Guyana was born in New York–The Mecca of Hip Hop, and for three years as child lived in her country Guyana which is where her stage name stems from. She knew that she had the music bug when she was about thirteen years of age. Princess Guyana was a big fan of Missy Elliot, Destinys Child. And Lauryn Hill. In school she was in chorus, took vocal lessons, and in Junior High School has solos in the traveling choir.
This 25 year old had such a passion for music that she made the decision to forgo her studies to become an attorney and instead pursue a career in music. Princess Guyana is musically influenced by her daughter, Alicia Keys, B.I.G, Maxwell, Madonna, and Michael Jackson.
In an interview with XXL Magazine she said My goal in the industry is to be one of the best that ever did it among female & male. I want to leave behind my own legacy not only in Hip Hop/R&B/Caribbean Sound but for all females in the industry. She says she is going to change the game by being an artist that can write, sing, rap, and her Caribbean sound look gives her a chance to express herself.
