Rap-stress, Mia X, finally returns to the limelight after an over ten year absence!
Mia X, nee’ Mia Young, was the very first female emcee inked to Master P’s mid-nineties powerhouse imprint, No Limit Records. From 1995 to ’98, Mia released three acclaimed solo albums; Good Girl Gone Bad, the gold certified Unlady Like, and her third and final effort, Mama Drama, before graciously bowing out of the rap game altogether.
Unfortunately, during her musical hiatus, Mia suffered several personal setbacks; primarily the unexpected and tragic passing of both her mother and father, as well as the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Suddenly, she was left to care for not only her own children, but also her youngest sister, Ashley, who thanks to Mia’s undying love and support, recently graduated from L.S.U. Medical with honors.
Although the self-proclaimed ‘Unlady Like Diva‘ briefly returned in 2006 with “Verbal Assault,” a track produced by Donald XL Robertson that appeared on the popular Southern Smoke mix-tape series, and a pair of songs on C-Murder‘s Screamin’ 4 Vengeance in ’08, no project ever materialized. Now, that is all about to change!
Mia X’ highly anticipated, fourth studio LP, Betty Rocka Locksmith, which she is currently finishing up work on, is being introduced by its first two offerings; the radio ready, “1 Life 1 Love,” which she’ll be shooting a video for soon, and “Get Da Paper,” an ode to eighties Hip-Hop.
Betty Rocka Locksmith is currently scheduled to be released in February 2010.
