Biography

A timeless talent whose lyrical creativity will inspire a nation and generations to come. This is the era of Terra aka Lady Te. It is her goal to become a voice for every person who ever had a dream. It is her heart’s desire to mirror the thoughts of her peers. She uses her personal life experiences combined with the experiences of those around her to create music that people can listen to, identify with and be encouraged by. Though she is young in age, she is wise in spirit and knowledge and is no amateur.

Terra began rapping in 1999 when TLC’s “No Scrubs” was on the charts. Six years later, her admiration for her favorite performer, the late Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes, has kept her focused on the bigger picture. This is a picture that is framed with the courage of self expression. Industry insiders say that Terra carries that same strong, defiant sound and attitude that “Left-Eye” was famous for. “I like her style and she didn’t care what others thought of her,” says Terra of Lopes. “She expressed herself and in my heart, she is my big sister. She inspired me in many different ways. Her music and spirit will live on through me.”

A fearless firecracker whose presence is unmatchable. Once you hear her music and see her perform live you will become a believer. Her charisma emanates through her music and arrests you when she’s on stage. She’s captivating and her lyrics whether fun or serious are intelligent and stimulating. This is what sets Terra apart from her counterparts. She is a star.

“The music industry needs more young female rappers, “says Terra. “I keep it real. I write my own songs and I write from my heart when I’m happy, said or mad. I am just being Terra. I rap because that is the way I express my feelings. I am a young lady and I can’t say everything that I want to say so I express myself in my songs.”

It is this sincerity, drive and determination that is currently propelling her to higher heights and catapulting her career to new dimensions. Terra’s vastly growing fan base is extremely loyal as she has become a staple in her hometown of the Motor City, Detroit, Michigan. Her list of accomplishments only confirms that she is a seasoned professional and that her experience in the industry has groomed her into becoming the polished, passionate artist that she is.

She has performed across the country sharing stages with the likes of Chrisette Michele, Young Jeezy, Fabolous, Travis Porter, K’Jon, N.E.R.D., Gucci Mane, Sammie, Rick Ross, OJ Da Juice Man, Sean Kingston, Jibbs, J Holiday, Playas Circle, Twista, Kelis, MC Lyte and many more. Her songs have received over 4 million plays on MySpace, she’s had over 130,000 views on Worldstarhiphop.com. With many performances and three studio albums under her belt, she has proven that she has what it takes to take over the world and it is just a matter of time before everyone is able to see what is already been predestined; The Era of Terra.

“I’m going to bring my own style, and I am going to express what I feel in my heart. I’m not going to hold back and that’s what’s up.”

I need to get my hair did

And I stay tight
Hate on me

Verse 1:
L to the A-D-Y-T-E

Anything I rock I still look good
Wraps, Dreads or Twisties
Favorite hairstyle is braids with beads
Braids down my back like Alicia Keys
Cut it all off like India Ire
Or wear it in an Afro like my girl, Free
You know how I do it, you know my style
All eyes on me when I come around
They know what’s up they know the deal
All the hair down my back is real
Hate on me I wish you would
Talk about me I wish you would
Boys they stare all around my hood
Don’t have to say nothing cause
I Know I look good

Verse 2:
Me and my girls be wildin out
We like them boys with grills in their mouth
They like them girls with ponytails
Complicated names with long nails
Different color hair like every two weeks

Rock any hairstyle I still stay sweet
I got a reputation sweeping boys off their feet
I rock kinky twist, I rock curls
They be like “When you get your hair done girl?”
I dress to impress
