Florida is a very competitive state when it comes to hip-hop and very few female artists have had the ability to shine like Ft Pierce native, Beema.
Beema began her musical path in 2003 which was spawned by her love for poetry. The published poet spent an adequate amount of time honing her craft and was ready to pursue music as a career in 2008.
Her versatile style is described as a clever mixture of hardcore and sexy. The ability to adjust her voice inflection on each track and to address a wide range of subjects is two reasons why she is quickly becoming a fan-favorite.
The Florida State University Alumni has collaborated with several talented artists/producers including: Burga, Gutta Slim, Tru Baller, Papa Duck, Kandi Dady, C-Rena, Killa Kim, and plenty more.
“. . . Music is my passion and it’s the way I express my past and future . . . .,” said Beema.
Her musical influences includes: T.I, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def, Lil Wayne, Common, Trina, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, and Nas.
Her debut mixtape, Beauty and the Beast vol. 1 (2009) was hosted by the world-renown DJ Smallz. Her singles “I got it” and “White Gyrl Swagg” quickly snatched the attention of fans and unbelievers alike.
The savvy-minded artist followed up with two more mixtape releases: Beauty and The Beast vol. 2 (2011) and B.Y.O.B 24/7 (2012).
Beema’s main source of motivation stems from the love that she have for music as well as her family. Beema first-handedly witnessed the ‘struggle’ as a child. Never thinking that her lyrical creativity would be her one way ticket out of the struggle; but now, she wants her parents to be able to relax and enjoy the finer things that life has to offer.
In 2012, she linked up with one of the most powerful managers/record-breakers in the South, C. Wakeley. Generally, he refuses to work with female artists but according to Wakeley, “I am thoroughly impressed with her.”
Beema released her 4th mixtape titled ‘Scuse Me’ on September 11, 2013, and track for track, pound for pound she dominates each track so effortlessly. Beema is currently working on her street album “I’m a G.A.W.D.” which will be available for purchase the end of fall 2014 via iTunes, Amazon, etc.
Lay around, there’s plenty more to come from this young lady.
