Biography

QUEEN YONASDA
Pronounced (Yo-Naja-Ha)

No Nation Can Rise Higher Than It's Woman," is a saying that breathes truth. Queen YoNasDa epitomizes this energy as a hip hop artist, curator, and activist. Without a doubt, there is an imbalance occurring in hip hop where female emcees have been silenced. Her strong presence is bringing femcees with a message back to the forefront of music as the days of Queen Latifah and Lauryn Hill with a modern twist. Her musical style encompasses an eclectic mix of wisdom, grooves, catchy hooks, and is sure to reach the masses.

Queen Yonasda has driven herself in the industry beginning choreographing for BET's own Teen Summit, Planet Groove and Soundstage to opening nationally on the Wu Tang Clan 8 Diagrams Tour (Winter 2008-2009). Along the way she has performed with many other artists from Lloyd, Ginuwine,Method Man & Redman, Jurassic 5, Christina Aguilera & Many more. She has appeared on various mixtapes and albums (Flip Ya Wigs Compilation, Kanye West presents Malik Yusef "G.O.O.D Morning-G.O.O.D Night" 2009, 2006 Wu South Mixtape, 2006) & artists albums Cappadonna "The Transition," Shaka Amazulu the 7th –Debut (UK artist), Atllas "Hunger & Starvation", and completing her own debut album God, Love & Music (Released October 2009). Also look for her single Pow Wow" in the Empire Films movie "Diamond Dawgs: Code 487".

Most recently, Queen YoNasDa just completed her first national co-headlining tour with Wu Tang Clan's Raekwon alongside Capone N Noreaga "Built For Cuban Linx 2 Tour" (Nov.13-Dec 19,2009). She performed songs from her highly respected album "God. Love & Music" that hit retail/ digital stores internationally October 27, 2009.

"I'm not here to beat people in the head with a sermon, I'm here to tell the truth," she eludes. This lyrical queen has released her debut album independently with Supa Music/Kingz N Queenz/101 Distribution, "God.Love and Music" featuring Cappadonna, Dr. Ben Chavis Muhammad, Keith Murray, M-Eighty and others with production by Cookin Soul, New York West, CR Productions, K-Boog and others. She speaks and performs across the United States promoting unity, education and respect for all cultures. With roots reaching back to Native American tradition and the Nation of Islam, where her mother, a Lakota (Sioux) and her father, a hustler and a fine artist hailing from Brooklyn, this queen knows the blues all to well, but never let it dampen her spirits.

As a young child YoNasDa stood by her mother's and grandfather Minister Louis Farrakhan, side speaking to the hip hop nation. She remembered when he uttered "one of a rapper's songs is equivalent to five of his speeches." As an emcee, YoNasDa is living proof. She takes her responsibility seriously by using her music as a mouth piece to educate and uplift young people. As a mother she sees what music can do and understands the power of the spoken word. YoNasDa has a mission and is going full throttle. She is the national director for the Indigenous Nations Alliance-Millions More Movement. This truth-teller is a published writer who has a weekly column in the Final Call Newspaper and is now bringing her artistry to the world. To YoNasDa "Queen" is not just a word, it is a calling and she's rising to the occasion.
