Who Is Mommy Rapper?
Originally from Toronto, Canada and now residing in Sacramento, California, Mommy Rapper is a family-friendly rap artist rated E for Everyone. She has 9 singles on streaming platforms everywhere and has been featured on Entertainment Tonight US, ET Canada, CBS, The SunUK, Little Things USA and more.
Mommy Rapper believes the music industry needs more commercial rap music that kids under the age of 16 can listen to, and artists who create clean, unedited music without swearing, vulgarity, sexual innuendos, glamorizing drugs, alcohol and sex. More songs like Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road'!
Mommy Rapper grew up in the 90's in Toronto listening to rappers from every corner of the US and would often freestyle at the bus stop with her friends. She performed Run DMC's "Christmas in Hollis" at age 12 for her entire school. Her joy of performing led to her being accepted to a school for the arts in Toronto where she majored in Drama.
When it came time to apply for university, Mommy Rapper listened to her father who said making a living in acting is hard, so she enrolled as a Political Science major thinking she would become a lawyer. After graduating with an Honors B.A. she decided to start working in the real world. Her passion for acting took a back seat for many years while she thought that climbing the corporate ladder was the right thing to do. She ended up working in PR for a few years, got married and became a mother in 2007.
In 2008 when she became pregnant with her second child she decided to leave the corporate world. Then, in 2013 Mommy Rapper and her husband Sean welcomed their third daughter and moved to the US in 2015 for Sean's work. In 2019 they went for one more child and had their 4th girl.
But it was one, fateful day after having 2 children that Mommy Rapper began to ask what her purpose was outside of being a mother, PR consultant and wife. During a women's event in Vancouver, BC she asked, "why am I here, and what am I supposed to be doing with my life?" She heard the answer loud and clear: "Create Clean Rap Music."
Mommy Rapper obeyed the voice and slowly began to reconnect with her rap roots and resurrect her childhood passion of writing rhymes. Her disappointment in the lack of clean rap songs in commercial music was the catalyst to her decision to be the change she wanted to see instead of just complaining about it with other parents.
In 2013 Mommy Rapper decided it was time to raise some capital on Kickstarter to support her vision. She raised $8,000 and launched two singles at the end of 2014. Her first single was titled "Day Away" and is about her dream day off and the second track "Face The Music" discusses the effects of song lyrics on our youth.
After relocating from Vancouver, BC to Sacramento, CA in 2015, Mommy Rapper worked with a local producer and launched her first U.S. track called "Beauty Queen." The song is about the redefinition of a beauty queen as one who paves her own lane and feels great about being herself. She subsequently hired another producer and released 5 additional singles titled "This Life" "Favorite Fam" "Doin' My Own Thing" "TEAM" and "I'm Boss."
In May 2020 Mommy Rapper released her first EP album called "Clean Rap Songs Vol 1" which received great reception and got her interviews with Entertainment Tonight US and Canada. Her music video for her lead single "Mutha" features famous mom tik tokkers and was shared all over social media.
Mommy Rapper is currently focusing on growing her brand as a clean, commercial rap artist, building her YouTube Channel, recording more original music and breaking into the music industry with her niche, clean rap brand. Her dream is to write and record music with companies like Disney and Nickelodeon, whom she believes have a vision and mission aligned with hers: to provide children and families with clean entertainment.
Mommy Rapper is investing every spare moment (and dollar) outside of raising 4 girls with her soulmate, Sean, into her vision of making clean rap music. She is also lobbying to have "clean rap" an official genre in the music industry. Follow Mommy Rapper on social media to keep up with her career.
