"A Woman's Touch"

West coast femcee, Miss Marianna, agrees that Hip Hop is in dire need of a new leading lady to step up to the same plate foundated by legendary Greats such as Salt-n-Pepa, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, and Lauryn Hill. Does she have what it takes? She answers that question not in mere words, but in deed—hopeful that indeed her words may prove the deed.

With her debut album dropping in July, Miss Marianna’s rhymes – which were once described as having “too much attitude” – will contest the test of time.

"Introducing Miss Marianna"

The next big female MC on the west coast...

Miss Marianna has loved performing in the limelight since she was just eight years old – the first time she performed in a talent show. Currently, the West Coast Hip-Hop scene is in desperate need for a new Femcee to take the game by its horns – enter Miss Marianna.

Once being criticized for owning a rhyme scheme which has “too much attitude”, Miss Marianna will not dumb down or take a step back for anybody. She is a fierce MC who is not afraid to show it, and frankly doesn’t care if her style is not your cup of tea – this is hardcore Hip-Hop at its finest.

Miss Marianna is no stranger to making something out of nothing, growing up in a poor tight-knitted family, Marianna performed in theatre, choir, pageants and poetry – yet she still could not find her niche. It wasn’t until High School was Marianna began taking part in Hip-Hop activities, eventually becoming a member of the female led Hip-Hop group, “Box a Chocolates.”

Now flying solo, Marianna is ready to do her own music, without being viewed as nothing more than a sex object. To consider her so, would be a crime to her educated rhyme pattern. Miss Marianna is a female MC who is ready to lead the nation of women in Hip-Hop.

Miss Marianna worked in radio, which provided her with the business aspect to be a successful artist, fully understanding the importance of radio spins and solid promotion. Always on her A-Game, Marianna understands she has to be ready to be challenged for being a female in a male dominated music genre; her often described “no nonsense work ethic” has helped her compete all the way up to this point.

This point truly defined is the upcoming debut album from Miss Marianna – promptly titled “First Lady.” Being released in July of 2009 through Uniquely Wrapp’d, a label ran by women for women – but there is no playtime involved, everything is professional and positive. Stay tuned for July 2009 when Miss Marianna becomes the “First Lady” of Hip-Hop.

Miss Marianna(LP): To Be Cont...



When a star is born it is destined to struggle and evolve, until it illuminates a force beyond measure. Dazing even the most experienced of her kind, Miss Marianna is new to the airwaves but true to the game. As a child of the 80’s popular hip hop movement, she chose performing arts over the effects of cracks aftermath. The microphone to be specific, spoken word was the vehicle that propelled her beyond the limitations of urban decline. By high school Miss Marianna joined the ASU Poetry Exchange and became founder of The Blue Room Players (partnering in local venues, hosting poetry workshops and slam team poetry). Soon after she produced and hosted The Cipher, a spoken word venue. She’s made print in The Sacramento Bee, The Sacramento Observer, and the Sacramento News & Review. She’s been featured on local news stations in Sacramento including Channel 10 News and Channel 31 Good Morning Sacramento, rousing frequent coverage in Northern California. In addition, exposure on air as radio personality “Miss Maya on Fire” on KBMB 103.5 The Bomb finally made her aware of the greatness echoing in her voice.

Miss Marianna possesses the gift of command; At times it’s almost surreal to see such a delectable bombshell drop verses potent enough to make even the most raved veteran choke.

Miss Marianna’s testimony riddles throughout her lyrical savvy illustrating the voice of a young women‘s rights of passage from a round-the-way-girl, to a qualified Mistress of Ceremony. Good for women, without dogging the men; addressing the daily journey of self identity, love and struggle. Setting a new standard where the voice of the female emcee has been long deferred, Miss Marianna is infinite in diversity.

She has performed from California to New York, became a finalist in the world’s famous Showtime at the Apollo, opened for hip hop artist Common, guest featured on Bay area’s own Zion I’s overseas release track titled “Act Right”, and recently performed at LA’s own The Palmer Room.

Miss Marianna is Cali’s Own reigning Queen of the Mic Champion, she dropped her first mixtape with Violator DJ Alvin D, a second mixtape project titled “Miss Marianna: DaLastLaugh”, and with her most current LP titled: "To be Cont.." there is a wave of anticipation buzzing on the block for her 2009 Debut Album Release.
