Bassee, a female emcee with a raw and honest flow to match. Don’t be fooled by the high heels and pretty face, when it comes to rhyming, Bassee means business. Born in New York and raised in Baltimore, Base has a history in the game that reads like a hip hop who’s who. Through her own label, Upsouth Records Base offers the world her debut labor of love, “The Legend of Tracy Chambers”.
While on her journey to achieve hip hop greatness, Base was able to open shows for the late Notorious B.I.G, The Fugees, Mob Deep, and Tu Pac. Throughout the years, she was briefly signed to superstar producers, such as Teddy Reilly, Rodney Jerkins, Timbaland, and Tu Pac’s Thug Life Records. She has also appeared on tracks for “Tim’s Bio”, Dru Hill’s “Tell Me” remix, Sporty Thieves “Shot Callas”, and FOX’s “The PJ’s” soundtrack. Despite her credits, Base was trapped “sitting on the shelf”, and was forced to take her career into her own hands. This led her to create a label of her own – Upsouth Records.
Through Upsouth, Base independently put together her first solo project, “The Legend of Tracy Chambers”. A raw and honest introduction into the world of the self proclaimed “Unknown Veteran”, "my hopes for this abum is to let people know that your experiences in life especially childhood experiences have a way of shaping who you become in your adult life", she touches on several serious topics, such as abortion, child abuse, and her love for God. The album invokes a theme borrowed from the movie classic “Mahogany”, where she proudly attached herself to Diana Ross's lead character in the movie Tracy Chambers which warns of success without someone you love to share it with. This album is about a woman determined to make it in a mans industry through all odds, and deliver messages in the music with honest emotion and conviction so women everywhere will know "I too share your story and your pain and I'm not ashamed to write about it!!!!"
