Her name is Chastity Daniels, but mostly known over the world as LaChat. One of the most talented rising female rappers in the industry. Hailing from Memphis, TN, she has always loved hip hop music and considers M.C. Lyte as a role model. She has her own style of music that sets her apart from your typical female artist. She considers herself as being the voice that represents hustling, thug-life and most importantly the street females and mothers. She has helped open doors for up and coming female rap artist. Her career began back in 1998 with the Oscar Winning Group Three 6 Mafia. Her first Platinum feature, with Three Six Mafia, “Chicken Head” was on Project Pat’s album. After that the doors opened for her to become the Queen in Hip Hop she is. She was featured on numerous other projects with Three Six Mafia including “Two Way Freak” and “Baby Mama”.

In this episode of PoPolitickin, we politick with Julisa.
Julisa is the spirt of enlightenment and the embodiment of human warmth, with a voice as soulful as Lauryn Hill and a flow as effortless as Missy Elliott. Julisa was dubbed “The Female J. Cole,” but if we’re being honest, she’s a phenomena, entirely unlike any one particular contemporary or past artist. Embracing her social intuitive knowledge and her ability to let loose going from songs such as Nappy Thoughts to Thick Girls she retains a versatility unlike any other. Julisa has had her music featured on Ball in the Family and her musical prowess is all in the family; her grandfather drummed had the opportunity to drum for Duke Ellington before he became a household name and it’s safe to say that strong rhythm finesse has been passed down to Julisa, who is sure to become a household name soon.

The Good People, consisting of The Saint (Producer) and Emskee (Emcee), is a perfect blend of soulful classic hip-hop with meaningful lyrics. Some call it "Throwback music." Others have called it "Grown Folk Hip Hop." The Good People call it hip-hop that comes from their soul and would like to share it with listeners that are otherwise forced to listen to music they cannot relate to. Come listen to what hip-hop has been missing.Artist Spotlight - Avrex | @Avrexhiphop

Growing up in a very religious home where both her parents are pastors they would not allow her to listen to rap music or anything that promoted profanity.

She is the second to youngest child of 5 brothers and 1 sister. SheGo was forced to join choirs and sing in churches but also took it upon herself to study the music she preferred listening too. While creating her own sound she found herself dropping remixes on SoundCloud and it gained the attention of her classmates at the several schools she attended. On March 4th 2019 SheGo Turbo released her first solo project “After Hurt”. Her unique flow, and harmonic melodies draws you in the minute you plug her into your speaker.
