Beautiful The Beast was always drawn to music. As a young child she would sit in her room and make up songs to keep her mind occupied while her older siblings were at school. When she started school she joined the choir. At age 9, she was introduced to rapping throughh her older brother Q. He and his friends had a rap group and she would watch and listen as they freestyled, wrote, and practiced their rhymes. She began to write also, and quickly formed a love for Hip Hop. She and two of her childhood friends, formed a girl group called 24/7. They wrote multiple songs together but never got into the studio to record. 24/7 broke up shortly after Beautiful's family was forced to move away due to their home burning down one Christmas. Beautiful continued to write songs, as well as raps and poems, on her own. In high school she found that lunchtime was the perfect place to practice her freestyling and written rhymes for a friendly crowd. She also remained in almost every show choir her school offered.
After high school, rapping didn't seem a top priority for her as she entered college, but she did join the choir. As an older teen and young adult it took a few years for her to consider that she could possibly have a fulfilling music career. Beautiful started out in the entertainment industry as a freelance event model for promoters in her area. Then she began to do "urban glamour" print in 2006. She realized that a career in entertainment was something she wanted to seriously pursue. Beautiful has covered and been featured in multiple magazines and publications, local and national, as a model. In 2009, she joined up with SLAB ent., independent record label of her long time friend Chip tha Ripper, and soon began writing again and recording her official introduction to the music world.
Beautiful boasts her versatility as a model and artist on tracks like "Gymnastics" with lines such as "I'm a beast on camera, I'm a beast in the booth, my name ain't Trae, but u can bet these niggas call me the Truth" She expresses a different, more concious sound in "Go" with lines like, "look at this African child right here, emotions used to cloud me now I see so clear, success will look far away and be so near, but I'm still here." Beautiful sings and raps depending on the track and mood and often regrets that she must choose one genre to affiliate herself with as she listens to and is majorly influenced by almost every genre of music.
In addition to being a published model and aspiring recording artist, Beautiful is also a BMI registered songwriter, professional published makeup artist, a licensed bartender, barber, and entrepreneur.
