Award winning Hip-Hop artist and entrepreneur, Bronx native Mala Reignz is one of the latest phenoms to grace the industry. Declared “Unsigned Hype” by The Source Magazine, and “Flava of the Month” by Straight Stuntin’ Magazine, Mala has burst onto the mainstream Hip-Hop scene and people are taking notice. Her rhyme skills have led her to perform among the industry’s best at the 2010 Latin Mixx Awards as well as Digiwaxx’s all female cypher hosted by the legendary MC Lyte. Not to mention, Mala knocked some of the fiercest competition in the Bronx – all genres, and was chosen to represent the Bronx borough at the 2011 Battle of the Boroughs competition presented by Summerstage NYC.
Mala has also been featured on New York’s Hot 97.1fm and 105.1fm, which are among the country’s top radio stations for mainstream Hip-Hop and breaking new artists.
Mala turned heads with the release of her debut EP The Calm Before the Storm in 2010. The lead single “Dum Da Dum” debuted on Hot 97’s Rush Hour hosted by DJ Enuff as well as on Power 105’s Morning Show with Ed Lover and DJ Lady Chellez. “Make You Smile” featuring Emanny is her latest single and was a featured video on the MTV show, “Rap Fix” hosted by Sway.
So…remember that video where the guy in the 8-ball jacket slapped the soul out of the hoodrat that hit him on the train? Well, Mala wanted to keep that energy alive for women’s month with her video for her new single “Soul Slap” with DJ Webstar. Just Mala delivers a spine cracking slap sending him to an alternate reality where retro is LIFE in the video, the Bronx Bomber slapped the streets with an authentic thumper sure to get the asses out the chairs.
“A ‘bad girl’ is a woman who holds it down at home and in her career,” Mala explained. “She is a power force and trendsetter ready to kick down barriers still facing women today.”
A leader, fighter and role model, Mala is determined to change Hip-Hop’s view of female rappers and let the world know that Bad Girls rule!
Her sophomore project, Mega Reignz is still circulating the internet and is available for free download on the ScholarVMG website.
