Next up! Najmah53! Radio Personality, Publicist, spoken word artist, known for her honesty & bluntness. She spits honest truth, from her heart. She is about strengthening the Sisterhood & spreading her positive message to all who hear it.

She started writing short poems at the age of 8. By 11, her love of hip hop culture, lead her to start rapping and doing graffiti.  By high school she was rapping in talent shows, on the local radio station and in clubs.
At 17, after returning to NY, Najmah53 was offered a deal to be the rap member of an R&B female group and tour Europe. This also meant changing her image to weaves, nails, short skirts and selling sex. She refused to compromise who she was,she did not sell out.  After her conversion to Islam she started to write more positive verses, as well as Islamically-driven poetry.
For the past few years Najmah53 has been on hiatus to complete a degree in Fashion Design, start her own design business, and raise her children. In 2010, she decided she missed one of her first loves, poetry. She is now performing again and has a CD of her work slated to come out 2011.
