Kellee Maize – the US rap star, has announced that she will appear at this year’s Midem in Cannes.
Kellee Maize began to rap and perform at a tender young age to entertain herself and to “Escape reality.” Her childhood best friend helped her to form her first rap group called ‘Thunder and Lightning’ at age 9.
Her first album, Age of Feminine, was released in 2007. Since then, she has released three more albums: Aligned Archetype (2010), Integration (2011) and Owl Time (2012)
Maize is a strong activist on women’s rights, environmentalism, and issues relating to poverty, and racism. She is also in touch with her spiritual side, which is greatly reflected in her music. She studies world and environmental issues, the power of intention, meditation, quantum physics, astrology, Tarot and indigenous wisdom. Maize feels her purpose in life is to make music that sends out good energy/good vibes and music that make people think.
