Atropa BellaDonna sounds like Da Brat meets "Sex and the City", with a little bit of "girl next door", Salt N' Pepa, Kelis, TLC and "college intellectual" mixed in for an added spice.

Biography

WHO IS ATROPA BELLADONNA?
----
Every female rapper likes to consider herself different from the rest and Atropa BellaDonna is no exception. However, BellaDonna’s hypnotic delivery, raspy voice, innovative and original lyricism, and eccentric style easily set her apart from other female artists and make her the exception. The name Bella Donna literally means “beautiful woman” in Italian and in English is the shortened name for “atropa belladonna”, a plant containing hallucinogenic properties that when ingested creates vivid delusions that can be fatal, thus reflecting her dual sided nature (A Beauty and a Poison).....
----
The California born emcee began her journey into the artistic realm early in life by writing poems and short stories that she would later recite to her close family and friends. Spurred on by her family’s encouragement, BellaDonna entered a national poetry competition in middle school, resulting in two of her poems being published in a national poetry anthology. Bella continued to write poetry until she entered high school where she fell in love with Rap and realized that she could combine her great love of words and music to create something very pure and original.
----
BellaDonna takes inspiration from her real life experiences, day-to-day life, daydreams, and other artists she grew up listening to such as TLC, Salt N Pepa, Da Brat, and Kelis. Bella has performed in venues all across southern California and Europe, including “The Sugar Factory” in Amsterdam and is everything you never expected of a female rapper. With her beautiful looks, down to earth personality, insightful verses and catchy hooks, you’ve nothing left to do but “pick your poison”. Just be careful you don’t overdose as Bella spits in her song “O.D.”, “Its not even fair how I kill em everytime... they O.D. off my rhyme”.
