Fury, Chai Tulani, E. Brown, Jason Gatz
FURY was born in Chicago Illinois. As a child she attended her grandfather’s church where she gained a very strong moral foundation as well as an appreciation of soulful music. Growing up she expressed her feelings through art and grew very fond of poetry and spoken word. Her biggest inspirations growing up were Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill, Eve, Left Eye and Talib Kweli. At the age of 13 she began to embrace the notion of becoming a rapper. Due to the loss of many loved ones she used writing to deal with the pain and loneliness we all deal with growing up. In high school she performed in several talent shows and began to gain more confidence as a rapper. At the age of 22 she became a mother and gained an even stronger drive to be a positive female role model. The music FURY writes is very intense and heart felt. She is very aware of the decline in positive messages in hip hop especially from female artists. She is inspired by music from all walks of life as long as it attempts to connect people and helps others to deal with life. She hopes to continue the legacy of the great female emcees who paved the way for her and motivate the emcees of the future.
