Tierra Bynum, better known as hip hop artist MissyB, was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Although, she currently lives in Las Vegas, she calls Mississippi her home. She was raised in a small town called Starkville, Mississippi where there was only one public schooling system. Because of that, MissyB literally grew up with her classmates from kindergarten to 12th grade. She was born January 30, 1990 to Darlene Cribbs, an Administrator at Social Security and Joe Nate Bynum, a University of Nevada Las Vegas Film Professor.
Entertaining and music has always been present in MissyB’s life. She began to show interest in entertainment and music at the very young age of 5. Her second grade teacher took notice of her talent to perform and cast her as the lead role in her school’s annual school play. From being awarded the lead role, there was no stopping MissyB from that point up until she graduated high school. She was involved in numerous musicals, community plays and theater camps that propelled her love for performance from amateur to outstanding.
MissyB grew up in a musical environment. At age four, her father would bring her to his classical voice rehearsals. He is also an accomplished and accredited singer, dancer, actor, and screenwriter.
MissyB always adds whimsical potency to her life. Being a 90’s baby, she grew up reading Dr. Seuss books and watching Disney cartoons that molded her mind to want to live in a world of such fanciful harmony. She credits her role of Jojo in her high school musical Seussical for allowing her to live out her playful nature. She wishes she could have acted in more musicals like Seussical because the show’s characters were color-filled and not illustrated as black, white, or even human; just like the books and cartoons she grew up knowing.
Her debut CD, Hot Head in High Heels is schedule for March 10 release, and it’s first single, “New Chick” will hit radio on March 1. “New Chick” expresses the emotions of a girl whose ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend keeps talking trash about her. She’s fed up with her disrespect and is now letting the new girlfriend know that she either needs to shut up or put up. Additional, tracks include, “I’m Coming For You” has the underlining message, I’m coming for the number one spot; “She Bad,” is MissyB theme song. This song gives her listeners an insight on who MissyB is, and what she stands for. “White House” is considered her trophy song. It explains how she is in the position to laugh at those fake people she has come across and haters, who have attempted to discredit her and belittle her talent; but MissyB has the last laugh she made it and partying at the White House.
Hot Head in High Heels production team include Rashad Cole (Rush), Tony Fadd and Darren Daniels (D Money). It was recorded in Las Vegas at two of the state of the art recording studios; We Whit It and Odds On Recording Studio.
It’s no surprise that being a good lyricist comes easy to MissyB. Her love of writing was cultivated when her mother entered her into a “Reflections” writing contest when MissyB was in the second grade. Although she placed third overall, her love for writing was created and she began to transition her writings into raps during her freshman year in college at the University of Las Vegas Nevada.
Over the years, MissyB acquired a listening ear across the music spectrum from the award winning and legendaryWhitney Houston to the hard-hitting, take no prisoners, hip hop artist Trina. Additionally, her love for 90’s R&B music will always stand-out. Also, artists and groups like Jodeci, Boyz II Men, Mya, SWV, Xscape and Dru Hill to name a few are artists she loves; but her true support is given to the unstoppable Beyonce.
MissyB’s sound can be described as trap-rap with a flare, but her genre has no musical boundaries. She would love to work with artists such as Trina, Uncle Luke and Taylor Swift as she has the upmost respect for their talent. She is open to all styles of music and will never limit herself to one avenue of sound.
