"One to watch out for” quotes Akil the MC from Hiphops Legendery crew, Jurrasic 5.
One of the UK’s promising upcoming lyricists has finally arrived. The art of storytelling fused with: ear clenching wordplay, bizarre punch lines and in detailed poetry (just to name a few) are elements that this Artist obtains exceptionally well…she really is tremendous.
Her unique and creative way of thinking is complimented by her diverse portfolio of music already released with truck loads of more to come.
2013/2014 was an incredible year for TrueMendous as she opened up for Hip-Hop’s very own Capone-N-Noreaga in Bristol, the UK’s most hardworking female mc Lady Leshurr in Camden and the most anticipated ILUVLIVE in Birmingham. Selected by BBC, TrueMendous was one of the 8 chosen Artists out of the entire UK to take part in DJ Targets BBC 1xtra “Battle of the Bands” competition in Maida Vale Studios. Not only was she the first member of her team to win her battle in front of a panel consisting of: Ghetts, Etta Bond and Trevor Nelson but they also awarded her MVP out of all 8 musicians.
BBC 1xtra also put on a Grime and Hip-Hop Cypher at a later date which took place in “The Drum” Birmingham. TrueMendous was the only Artist who had a section of her performance featured in the 1xtra Presents “I Am Birmingham” documentary out of a male dominated line-up. She was also one of the mc’s who managed to gain recorded radio play on DJ Cameo’s “Gimme Grime” session from the cypher. Publically unreleased music from TrueMendous has been constantly played throughout a mixture of radio stations by DJ’s including: DJ Target and Trevor Nelson (BBC), Smooth Fuego (New Style Radio) and DJ Biggoss (Hot92).
Freestyle videos have also accumulated across various media channels including SB.TV and JDZ Media.
This 22 year old Artist from Birmingham has already released a full body of work in her debut Mixtape “The Autistic Librarian” (April 14th 2014). The mixtapes reception was remarkable. The CD consists of 17 detailed stories focusing on the reality of women lost within their inner self. Accustom to vulnerability, pain and love. (It’s free to download on datpaff.com).
Not only has she written outstanding hooks for singers but this diverse young lady can single handily write and create magic over: hip-hop, boom bap, grime, neo soul, funk and spoken word pieces.
NO ONE can predict what she is about to do before she does it. If you don’t believe me…check her out. When it comes to Live performances whether it be: an acapella, with a live band or rapping to a PA disk, TrueMendous is one you can’t fault. Her energy complimented by her clarity and projection on the mic really do work hand in hand providing the audience with an unforgettable performance.
Her latest project, “A non-Models Portfolio” is a series created by TrueMendous consisting of a Trilogy of 3 EP’s with 3 completely different sounds. Episode 1 “Whormonal Moodswings” will be released on April 19th 2015 and is available for pre-order and purchase on itunes and all other good digital stores Now…
