Candis "SheIsHipHop" White
"It don’t take a prophet to see the young girl is gifted/either hate it or get wit it/ I am what every brilliant mind envisions..."
Brooklyn, New York, home of some of entertainments most gifted and vibrant superstars also gave birth to this 20th Century's rap phenomenon. She is intelligent. She is fascinating...She IS Hip Hop.
Known to the industry as Candis, this burgeoning female artist has the lyrical poise to fall in line with some of the greatest of MCs, both male and female. With more than a decade of caressing line paper with an ink pen, Candis is solidifying her spot as one of the best to emerge out of the Big Apple. Compelled by the likes of Notorious B.I.G, Jay-Z, Nas, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Missy Elliott and Tupac, it is her very own life experiences growing up in Brooklyn's Farragut & Fort Greene Projects that allows Candis to demolish any microphone she encounters speaking truth whenever she breathes air into the mic.
It was in 2003 when Candis composed a tear-jerking number in reference to her years growing up and the loss of her grandmother, titled "It's OK" that she started to see hard work and dedication paying off. This work of art earned her a $10,000 college scholarship in the annual BMG World of Expressions songwriting contest. Candis has a message in her music that separates her from her peers --- a “heart-felt” message that captures the essence of hip-hop. Candis is a constant reminder of what the entertainment world is missing. But being such a powerful force in the tri-state, it will be a matter of no time before she is recognized by the masses for her lyrical flow.
In August of 2010, Candis linked up with an elite group of New Jersey artists to form F02 Music Group. It was then that her coequals named her "SheIsHipHop". After seeing her work in the booth, the moniker became a no brainer! Since the 2011 release of her self-titled mixtape "@SheIsHipHop", Candis has been performing at some of the hottest spots in the tri-state and beyond, and also appearing on internet radio shows throughout the country. While most suffer the loss of their mixtape buzz after a while, Candis continues to reign. She has worked with an assorted array of noteworthy artists, as well as appeared on MTV's RapFix Live "Get In The Game" segment. Her recent nomination for an Underground Music Award (UMA) for MOST ORIGINAL FEMALE ARTIST proves that this young lady is already making her mark in the game. Candis is currently working on her E.P. titled "Soundtrack of My Life" and recently launched her website SheIsHipHop.com.
