Born in Paris, France and a native of the French West Indies, Meemee Nelzy has been infatuated with black and caribbean music since her childhood.

In 2001, she joined the «Urban Soul Collectiv’», composed of soul singers and musicians from various countries.

For the first time she began to sing her own songs and revealed her soft and warm voice publicly.

Fortified with this wonderful experience, she returned to Guadeloupe in 2002 with the goal of becoming a solo artist and began learning beat making.

The results soon became convincing, she decided to meet artists from the island and gradually saw her work recognized by the french underground hip hop scene.

Influenced by hip hop music as well as jazz or caribbean music, she has built a soul repertoire melting with hip hop. Her lyrics, deeply rooted in everyday reality, is a compendium of ideas where everyone can meet.
