Lakithia has been captivating audiences since her days of elementary school. Growing up as the daughter of an Evangelist, she sang in churches across the mid-west at her mom’s engagements. She was bit by the bug before reaching her teenage years. During Junior high her parents relocated to the inner midwest city to care for her elderly aunt and uncle. This was quite an adjustment from the child hood years she spent in the suburbs of Lafayette, IN. She found herself in unfamiliar territory surrounded by gang and drug activity, violence and poverty. She experienced constant cruelty and bullying from her peers because she looked and spoke differently. Often times she found herself cornered and threatened by evil intended classmates. It was during these years she began to relate to the perspectives of various hip-hop artists. She could relate to the pain and frustration that the songs consisted of. She had always written poetry, but soon began to memorize and write the lyrics of her favorite artists like Tupac, Biggie, Jay Z and Lauryn Hill. She fell in love with Hip-Hop during her Junior High and High School years, and she reminisces, “It was the story telling of the artists then that drew me. At first I loved to listen and had fun rapping along with the rap stars. I always loved to write poetry and for fun I started writing my own raps. I realized one day, I love it and I’m good at it. I made somewhat of a transition from singing to rapping and began to seriously pursue it.” Lakithia also had an love and passion for modeling and acting.
