Growing up in Californa means being exposed from an early age to different cultures. Many talented individuals call the bear flag state their home. When it comes to hiphop, from Tupac to Snoop Dog, it is a fact that the West Coast has a longlasting impact on upcoming artists from the area.

Camille, also known as “Thug Misses” is on her way to becoming the next sensation. With a bachelor’s degree in Sound Arts in her pocket, she is constantly pushing the boundaries and putting her talents to use. Writing, recording, and mixing her own music, she lets her character shine through every track. As a black and Latina artist, she carries a lot of influences. Hardcore rap and sultry melodies can be heard through her songs. True to her roots, her lyrics are a reminder of where she comes from. The free-flowing delivery smoothes out the complex wordplay and impactfulness of her message. 

“I’m really expanding myself and digging deep into my art to push the boundaries of my music. I’m stepping out of my comfort zone’’ she says.

She started her career signing with West Coast Mafia and AWOL records but soon realized that it wasn’t the best fit. She is now an indie artist and finds it to be a better, more accurate representation of who she is. In the past twenty years, she has collaborated with great fellow musicians. JG, founder of Sacramento-based Eargazm Music Group, best known for working alongside Eve and Kanye West, is one of them. 

Like many before her, she transforms her struggles into sweet melodies and tells her story through carefully picked words. Her determination and grit keeps pushing her forward. She wants to show the world that women are an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. Dream big, put in the work and great things will happen. 

Her new single 99 U Ain’t 1 pays homage to Jay Z’s 99 Problems in true East Coast rap style. A more gritty rock ‘n’ roll rendition, it features her along with Hitta Slim, the mastermind behind the song Jackhammer and Mistah F.A.B, from the track Super Sick Wit IT.

“2020 was the year to really find myself as an artist, studying my craft and rebranding myself. 2021 is the year of takeover!” comments Thug Misses. 

She is raw, she is fierce, she is self-made. She is Thug Misses and she is representing where she comes from unapologetically.
