With “Money Bound Shawty” coming on the scene it certainly appears that Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill and Lil Kim have some fierce competition. Money Bound also known as Brigitte Kelly, is what we call a triple threat. The emcee, singer, and song writer is of Trinidadian decent but born in Long Island NY and later moved to North Carolina.. Father Curtis Kelly (dec.) introduced her to music and instruments at a very young age. She started off singing and writing conceptual songs with the help of her cousin Cristi J who sang hooks for certified rappers such as Akinyele. With this addiction to poetry it gave this young woman the foundation to the music world. Her brother Berry brought the hip hop emcee style influenced by Wu tang, Nas and many others which helped her turn the poetry in to rhythmic phrases. Once she found her sound and adjusted to punch lines and metaphors there was no stopping the diva from going in.
