Straight out of a Kansas City Trailer Park comes a true, American original: Wendy Ho. Crass, sexy, soulful, and ballsy, she is the definitive sexually liberated musical comedienne. Whether she’s spitting her own lyrical miracles, or jacking someone else’s song into her own poetic piece of perfection, Ho owns it. Her brash and undeniable musicality has drawn comparisons from Bette Midler to 2Pac. Equal parts dirty feminist rapper, soul singer, and musical parodist, Ho sounds like Lil’ Kim and Aretha eatin’ Peaches on a Lonely Island. Ho was born in Toledo, OH and raised in Kansas City, KS by her high school sweetheart parents. A born misfit, she was drawn to all things urban while growing up surrounded by white trash, and was kicked out of high school choir for sounding “too black.” This fascination with the street moved her ass to New York City and straight up to Harlem in the summer of 2002. When life got hard, Ho turned to drugging, dealing, and running hustle to keep her afloat during the lean times. Stealing ladies’ handbags from coat rooms at parties inspired her track “Bitch, I Stole Yo Purse!,” which became the #1 Funniest Video of 2008 on the MTV/LOGO Network, and was spoofed on FX’s Nip/Tuck with Jennifer Coolidge playing their version of Wendy Ho.
