"Davey D's Hip-Hop Corner"

"We've heard of someone named 'Misdemeanor' (Missy Elliot), but have you heard of someone named 'FELONi'? There ain't a better straight woman rapper out here who she can't go rhyme for rhyme with! You can take words like 'lesbian,' 'woman,' and 'feminist' from this rhyme-sayer's name and sit them in the corner! She is a true MC in the purest form. Her CD, 'A Woman's Revenge' is one of the best rap CDs I've heard in years.... F*ck what you heard...Lil Kim, Trina, Missy, Shawna, Remy Ma, Jean Grae, Eve, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Yo-Yo, Lady of Rage, Salt-N-Pepa, Foxy Brown, Khia, Jackie-O—FELONi is better than most of them and as good as any of them! Add her name to the pantheon of great female MCs...."

"Masterdisk, NYC"

"If you like your female rapper's rough, rugged, and raw you need to check out FELONi. In a different twist or flavor this female rapper can hang with the likes of Remy Ma, Lil' Kim, Trina, and Shawnna. With banging beats and vicious lyrics this rapper has a lot to say. So if you have an open mind take out some time to hear what she has to say."

"Real Detroit Magazine's Music Review"

Dec. 2007

"...Feloni is a Queen Latifah for the new millennium, with the wicked tongue of Lady of Rage and sex appeal of Da Brat. Latifah, who has been denying gay rumors about herself for years, opened up her 1993 hit “U.N.I.T.Y.” by yelling “Who you callin’ a b*tch!?” Now, the torch has landed in Detroit, with Feloni taking feminism further...."

- Thomas Matich

"Feloni Lays it Down"

"...Feloni has been able to deter comparisons to other lesbian rappers and be known as a rapper first, lesbian second...." -TRISH BENDIX - MTV's AFTERELLEN.COM


"Unlike many artists who have never lived the message, Feloni has the life experiences that give her music true credibility." -DR. J. R. GARIS - DR. J. R. GARIS

"GO Magazine"

"...'Brand New'... is more reiniscent of Missy Elliott- if she had half of Feloni's swagger." - Sophia Dorval Aug. 2006

Russell Simmons & WJLB-FM 98 2005 Official Detroit Hip-Hop Summit Mixtape: Detroit's Finest, Vol 1



After Queen Latifah, and before Nicki Minaj, there was Feloni. While most female rappers tend to use, or need, a major male rapper's voice to help them get established, Feloni walked into the rap game and established herself. She writes all her lyrics, records and mixes her own music, and produces. Although she spends little on marketing and promotions, has never approached a label, has never released a mixtape, and no longer allows interviews (the last public interview Feloni allowed was with MTV's AfterEllen), Feloni has gained notoriety as one of the most controversial female rappers in hip-hop—strictly through word-of-mouth.

Feloni is an underground recording artist, born in Detroit, Michigan, who is able to "mack" her game while expressing her sexual autonomy. In 2005, she broke out on the scene with her controversial debut single "Brand New" (featured on Russell Simmons and WJLB-FM 98's 2005 Detroit Hip-hop Summit Mixtape), politicizing "the nookie" by flipping the script on male posturing (using their language) and turning it into a taunt and protest against misogyny. Feloni pushes the limits of hip-hop's sexual expression by changing the politics of the game, empowering the genre’s usual subject of domination.

In 2006, MTV Networks thought that Feloni's music was "groundbreaking" and offered her an episode on the documentary reality series called "Coming Out Stories" on MTV's LOGO channel, produced by Oscar-nominated and 4-time Emmy-award winning film producers, Karen Goodman & Kirk Simon. Understanding that it would be a challenge to get a record deal without changing her tomboyish image, Feloni operates outside of the Hollywood machine. She refused to accept the advice of A&R reps to soften her appearance so that she would be more acceptable to mainstream, stating "I'm not a rapper, and I'm not about to change my image in the midst of my prime just to appeal to mainstream. I'm merely here to speak my mind. Period." She continued, "I think it's important that young women who want to rap don't feel that they have to exploit themselves sexually by bending to the male's perspective of how they think a female rapper should act, dress and rap. At the end of the day, you discover that it's not always about the 'fame' and 'fortune'; it's about integrity and creating a real sense of purpose. Another reason I created Trak Diamond Records is that I wanted to set the example for aspiring men and women—of any age—that you can start your own business in lieu of waiting around for someone else to determine your fate." Feloni has also said that she'd rather be hated for who she is than loved for being someone she is not.
