BOSS, is a American female rap artist / R&B singer that was born and raised in LosAngeles, California.
BOSS's introduction to music began at a very early age, being the niece of Motown writers and voaclists Brenda & Michael Sutton.
In the past, her aunt & uncle have penned hits for Smokey Robinson ["There Will Come a Day (I'm Gonna Happen To You)"], Cheryl Lynn ("Shake It Up Tonight"), a young
Michael Jackson ("Cinderella Stay Awhile") and
most recently, Texas rapper Scarface with special guests Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel sampled The Original track' "Sunrise" (yet another song that her uncle Michael Sutton (co-penned) for the Source Award-winning hip hop hit, "Guess Who's Back.
BOSS spent a lot of time with her aunt and uncle in thier recording studio surrounded by the sounds of music and the strict writing and vocal training sessions that were held by her aunt Brenda, always exposed & dreaming of oneday working in the music industry herself.
She got her foundation as a singer from being a member of her church choir in her youth.
During her teen years growing up in Los Angeles BOSS became a intern for the nations 1st all rap radio station, KDAY.
In 1991 / 1992 BOSS worked as a personal assitant to Nate Dogg of Death Row.
As she and Nate became close over the years, he also began to assist in BOSS's vocal training.
After trying to break into the music industry as a singer, writer and arranger she finally got the courage to take the reins and start producing the tracks for her herself.
In 1993 she relocated to Texarkana and was given a job by her uncle Ray Bursey @ her family's radio broadcasting station KZRB 1035 FM.
She took on a position in Sales/Marketing and Promotions but never let go of her dream to produce and become a artist herself.
She became one of the stations top radio personalities as a street scene reporter.
After some time behind a desk she became board and decided it was time to try her hand once again @ her first love, which was to actually be a artsist herself.
Only now there was a big difference, she had the knowledge of executive assistance, radio, promotions, marketing, publicrelations, publishing and music production under her belt.
So she took all of the moving capitol she had accumulated during her time @ the family station and invested in her own Mass Media & Marketing Company (Bossy Inc.)
Slowly but surly she begin to promote, produce and represent clients outside of her family's radio station which gave her more control when it came to the Artists.
She also used this gateway to introduce her own style of production to the world.
She then ventured deeper into the south to Houston, Texas.
It was there that she met her now long time friend Luscious Ice, one of the DJ's for Houston's 99.7 The Boxx, who in turn introduced her to her mentor/ close friend, Big H.A.W.K. of The Original Screwed Up Click ( R.I.P. ) who took BOSS under his wing as his Exec. Assistant, taught her the one of a kind Houston, Texas Style of industry grind and introduced her to all of Houston's elite in the music industry.
Wes Monroe ( Momma C ) of UGK Records also became her mentor and began to teach BOSS the industry game as she knew it, which also led to the business union of her student BOSS & her son Chad " Pimp C " Butler of UGK.
With their assistance & Big H.A.W.K.'S blessing, BOSS began to thrive as a force to be reckoned with as far as female rap artists are concerned.
BOSS is currently working on a Compilation CD titled "WEST2TEX" (The Pipeline) executively produced by herself & her long time friend, DAZ DILLINGER of The DOGG POUND.
The Cd will feature several well known artists from the states of California & Texas.
