So, who is Lakeyah? She is a 21-year-old Milwaukee-born rapper and singer. She started rapping at the age of 15. After completing high school she moved to Atlanta to pursue her career in music.

And I was just like I gotta do something. And the only thing that came to mind was dropping a mixtape. And literally, I don’t tell many people this, but I made $100k off dropping my own mixtape independently, on DSPs. And I feel like that just changed my life.”
