Love & Hip-Hop’s NYA LEE is back on her grind with two new music videos, “Thick” featuring Trina and her Lil Kim remake “Big Momma Thang“. “I had taken a break from pushing my music so that I could give birth to my baby girl and get my snap back together”, says the bodacious NYA LEE. “Working with Trina has been a real blessing. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Born and raised in The Bronx, NY, Nya Lee is becoming a force in music to be reckoned with. At the age of 16, NYA LEE dropped out of High School and hit the streets. “I wanted to be grown. At a young age, I forged my way into adulthood”, states NYA LEE whose stage name stands for “New York Always”. “From the ages of 15-18, I gave myself the name T Pearls. I used to wear a lot of costume jewelry when Harlem would wear colorful shit, so that was my thing. It was a kiddie knick name”.
At the age of 16, NYA LEE realized she wanted to pursue a music career. Her father owned and operated a recording studio in Columbus, Ohio, so she would often stack her strip club money and head Midwest to hone her skills as a lyricist. “My dad was into music. He was the owner of the popular “Street Buzz” DVD and it was popular in the Midwest. My uncles rapped as well, but my aunt Munchkin inspired me to go hard with it. She rhymed also and she would hold her own in a cipher filled with men. I admired that. She inspired and influenced me to make music my career”, she recalls.
“At the age of 18, I started stripping. I stripped for the money and for the notoriety. I was extremely good at it. When asked, “What made you stand out most as a stripper?” NYA LEE states, “I was always the club’s favorite”.
One major misconception of NYA LEE is that she is not and never was a Video Vixen. “I did three videos. That is it. I did “Everybody Jones” with Jim Jones and I was featured in “She Did It” and “Sacrifices” for Fabolous. Fab’s videos were conceptual videos. They were more like short films.
