"Impressed by Empress!"

This is Jesse Atkinson, CEO of Urban Threshold Inc and founder of the Underground Music Awards (, The A&R Power Summit ( and creator of the Urban Music Explosion (

Our internal Talent Scout staff has reviewed her Myspace page and witnessed her in a live performance. Our Talent Scout staff gave the music an evaluation rating of 8 out of a possible 10. We feel that the music is very industry standard.

We were impressed with the writing skills, lyrical skills, cadence, delivery, production and flow on each song.

We were particularly impressed with the songs "Industry Overthrown" and "Without You".
- Urban Buzz Factor

"First Winner!"

Empress Gold was the official first winner of Rock Star Arena which took place in August 2007 at The Bowery Poietry Club in Manhattan, NY. She beat out seasoned male competition and took home the crown! She and back-up dancer, Sstorm are a force to be reckoned with and when the live African drummers started, the crowd didn't know whether to listen or dance! - Molina Entertainment

"Africa Meets Hip Hop Through An Empress"

We have long ago wondered where our female MC's have gone and found many of them in jail, modeling, acting, or into fashion designing. There was a voice missing to represent urban women. Then I came across a performance by Empess Gold at The Lion's Den NY and listened to her CD after downloading it from and she is THE TRUTH! She represents every angle a woman can come in; sweet, loving, sensitive, emotional, angry, stressed, motherly, intelligent, Empress is able to embrace all aspects of herself, her life, and her community. WE NEED TO SUPPORT THIS ARTIST! - The Drum Call

It began on April 12th, 1977. Earth and fire combined with water and Gold was born. Gold is the last messenger of The Most High to touch the spirits of the young and the old through verse. After her there will be no more. Gold was born in Brooklyn, New York. By age two, her family had moved to Southeast Jamaica Queens, New York. This is where she grew. At age three Gold was enrolled in a dance school and by age fourteen she was rapping and writing her own lyrics. Upon maturing, Gold came up with the concept for a group of talented artist called, “The Light Tribe”. With this two female and two male member group Gold performed at many venues across the New York Metropolitan area. Some of the shows included, The Pulse Niteclub, an AIDS Awareness Festival in Harlem, Rio’s Supper Club, Le Bar Bat, an on the spot appearance at Wilson’s, and The Rochdale Village Fall festival. Now solo, Gold's purpose in the music industry is to change the face of hip hop by showing the upcoming generations that hip hop is more than sex, money, and weed. Gold wants the masses to realize that you can embrace every aspect of yourself - positive and negative - and still be righteous in deed and thoughts. The Empress is the next leader of the new school of hip hop. Some of Gold’s solo appearances have included Soca Paradise Club, The Afrikan Poetry theatre, Nell’s Niteclub, The Baggot Inn, The Bowery poetry Club, several shows at The Lion’s Den, White Wave’s John Ryan Theatre, and many other venues in New York. Her performances have been known to include live African dancers and drummers to open, even freestyles over the djembe drums to the pleasure of the crowd. With her production done by Nightshift Enterprises and long time friend, Omen, who has credits under his belt from working with the likes of Fabolous, Amil, Lil’ Kim, and Memphis Bleak, she can’t go wrong. His beats have been noted in XXL Magazine as ‘deep and gangsta’, (as commented about his track on Fabolous’ freshman album). This dynamic union of beats and flows will have your head nodding off the meter. Gold - No doubt, if the truth doesn’t awaken you to feel this hot, underground, MC, then maybe the drum call will. Stay open and keep your ear to the street for her first album called, “The Truth About Gold”. Gold is the industry’s best kept secret, but not for long.
