Mia X

Biography

Mia Young (born January 9, 1970), better known by her stage name Mia X, is a female rapper and was the first female emcee to get a contract with rapper/entrepreneur Master P on his successful record label No Limit Records.

In 1992, she released a single titled “Ask Them Niggas.” It appeared on her 1993 EP, "Da Payback". From 1995 to 1998, Mia X released three albums for No Limit: Good Girl Gone Bad, Unlady Like, and Mama Drama. The second was certified gold by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000 copies.Although born in New Orleans, Mia X began her rhyming career in Queens, New York, as part of New York Incorporated, which disbanded after only four years. Mia X then returned to New Orleans and met with Master P, an aspiring emcee and producer who signed her to his record label, No Limit.

Mia X reappeared on the hip hop scene in late 2006 with a track called "Verbal Assault" that was produced by Donald XL Robertson on the Southern Smoke mixtape series. The song included a refrain with the words "Guess Who's Back?" which lead to some speculation that she might be working on a new album.Mia X is currently at work as the executive producer on the release of her son Sean's (aka Fly Guy Sean) debut album The Future Is In My Hands... Also she is working very closely with her nephew Skrill-Dilly and his release on Mike Dean's List production label set to be released via an unsaid major distribution deal.In 2008, Mia X appeared on C-Murder's album Screamin' 4 Vengeance, on tracks titled "Mihita" and "Posted On Tha Block (Remix)."

Mia X recently released an interview about her hiatus and comeback, revealing that she is working on a mixtape and a new album called Betty Rocka Locksmith due out in 2011. She has shot a video for a song from her upcoming mixtape called I Get The Paper and released 2 songs called "Hush" and "Grown Woman" on December 8 through her own label Musiclife Recordings/XL Productionz (digitally on iTunes, Amazon MP3, etc.). Through Twitter Mia X has stated she does not want to rap again and has been retired for 12 years, which means that the mixtape and album she worked on after her 'retirement' will not be released. She has collaborated with Gangsta Boo and La Chat with a song "Bitchy" and shot a video for a song from their album "Witch". Also, she has a cook book with her own recipes coming out soon.
