Yo Yo hit the scene stompin to the 90's in 1991. This South Central Los Angeles native pioneer proclaimed being fearless in everything she touched. She challenged the male hegemony with her unforgettable lyrics which still reigns truth across the globe. “20 years ago, journalists asked me if Hip Hop was here to stay ; 20 years later I am celebrating the 20th Anniversary of You Better Ask Somebody and watching the transition of life into our music,” said Yo Yo.

(Intelligent Black Women's Coalition) and Yo Yo School of Hip Hop Academic and Arts Program in Los Angeles, Oceanside, CA and Highland Park, MI. She is a mother of 2 lovely daughters and almost newlywed to Mayor DeAndre Windom of Highland Park, MI. Yo Yo's illuminating dedication to making an extraordinary impact in everything she does is undeniably grounded in her roots.
