"MaKiiN is an up and coming star living in the Big Apple. Makiin moved to NY in September of 2012, after makin’ a name for herself in her hometown. Makiin is one of South Florida's most talented Hip Hop artists, but that amazing talent is about to take the world by storm.
You will be blown away by her delivery, charisma and charm. Her music will make you wanna get up, dance, sing-along, and share with the world. Her originality sets herself apart from ALL RAPPERS, men AND women. Influenced by the pioneers in the "rap game" MaKiiN's only option is to STAY TRUE TO HERSELF. She is a dancer, actress, spokeswoman for Local Charities and models, which also brings her light-years ahead of the game, so please DO NOT get her confused with these "Barbies" and Gimmicks you see today...
MaKiiN is MaKiiN MAYHEM!"

TRE - L
Tre-L is NOT a femcee, but an emcee who happens to be a female. Growing up with an eclectic musical background, Tre-L has always had a passion for the hip hop genre. She wrote her first song her sophomore year in high school for her honors English class. In high school, Tre would entice friendly class rivalries by rhyming about underclassmen on the loudspeaker (she graduated from the great class of '05). Besides these instances, Tre-L started freestyling with friends and would not write another song for five years. It was not until she was in college that she began taking her music more seriously and started writing rhymes more at the age of 20. Due to a lack of funds, Tre-L had to take a year off of school. During this time she vowed to put out a minor mixtape entitled "Real Talk", which she recorded entirely off of her laptop.
While she was not in school, she linked up with an artist named Scarr who was willing to record her in a studio as well as help guide her in the right direction to put out her music. Due to her busy work schedule between two jobs, Tre-L and Scarr eventually stopped working together as much, however remained on good terms. In March 2009 Tre met Pryme Prolifik of Rotten Garden Records and they soon found that they shared a major common interest, the love of making hip hop. Tre-L eventually became a part of Rotten Garden Records and credits Pryme Prolifik for helping her grow artistically. Now graduated, she is currently working on her debut solo mixtape "Trapped Talent" as well as a collaboration mixtape between her and Pryme Prolifik entitled "Hip Hop's Bonnie & Clyde". She continues performing endless shows in the New Jersey area, and has the potential to be in the hip hop game for quite some time... and while she's here don't DARE call her a femcee.
