“Regardless to what people may think, I’ve never had a scar removal done, especially to the cut on my neck because it’s proof that I made it through some rough shit. “-OG Nya Lee
A few months back I had the pleasure of attending Nya Lee’s listening party for her new album “Trap Luv,” since then she’s been working nonstop. After meeting her and getting to know her, I instantly fell in love with Nya’s personality, music, and overall views on life. Every day I look forward to her Instagram stories that she has titled “Wake Up Sis.”
“Wake Up Sis” gives inspiring motivational advice on everything from women empowerment, business, and just learning to love the skin you’re in. With all the drama in hip-hop between the men and the women alike, I can always appreciate someone using their platform to spread genuine love and positivity. Nya Lee used to be known as someone with a not so great reputation, so to now see her glo’ up and turn her life around, while being able to share the lessons she has learned along the way, through her music, makes her a hip-hop Queen in my book. Like a true female entrepreneur she hasn’t just stopped with music, she recently dropped a new clothing line called “Waisted by Nya Lee” that is selling out faster than she can restock.
“Waisted by Nya Lee” is styled for curvy women including everything from fashionable every day two-piece sets, to even an extra sexy fitness line. Ms. Nikki Allure is the beautiful face of the line, looking hotter than ever representing all the curvy women out there. Also, did I forget to mention that it’s super affordable? Visit www.nyaleewaisted.com for all purchases and follow @nyaleewaisted on Instagram to stay updated on all new merchandise.
In adjacent to the music and new line, you can also catch her co-hosting alongside Jack The Thriller on the “Party & Bullsh!t Show” every Monday 1-5pm aired on www.youtube.com/partyandbullshitshow.
The show is usually filmed in Harlem at “Eso Harlem Restaurant” and has many weekly celebrity guests covering all new topics in the media, music, and entertainment. In addition to this show, she is also a radio host on Fridays for Hitz 101.9 on the show Hustle Sold Separately.
With all these new projects going for her, she still had time to make sure that her album “Trap Luv” released this June and available for purchase and streaming on all major music platforms. To celebrate her album release she threw a private party in the lower east side at Hayaty Lounge with music by DJ Superstar Jay, DJ Mr Famous, & DJ K Star. In attendance at the party was “Love & Hip Hop” reality star Mariah Lynn & Jaquae. As well as Jack The Thriller, Nikki Allure, & the infamous DJ KaySlay. Towards the end of the party, Nya Lee blessed everyone with a small performance and a sneak preview of her new hot song “Trust Nobody” that gives us a little bit of her story in a rhyme. Stay tuned for the drop of her new music video “Ice On” where Nya Lee makes a major statement by not editing any of her scars and embracing all of her imperfections.
Out of all her new accomplishments, this stood out to me the most. So many of us suffer from depression and low self-esteem due to body/scar shaming. Nya is taking a stand and showing all women that “Perfection has imperfections”. She encourages all women to show off your beautiful scars because it is a part of your testimony, strength, and courage. Be sure to follow Nya Lee on Instagram & all major social media platforms @OG_Nya.Lee.
