Cocoa Brown born and raised in Harlem, N.Y. is up and coming as one of the next hottest female emcees. Cocoa started as a young vocalist singing gospel in local church ministries around Harlem. She later began singing classical music and opera in the late 90’s with the Boys and Girls Choir of Harlem. During this time she was professionally trained and tutored by Dr. Walter Turnbal, the creator of the Boys and Girls Choir of Harlem. While pursuing a career as a vocalist, Cocoa also started to follow a rap career after her mother, Bambi A.K.A. The Iron Maiden, the first female emcee of the legendary Wu Tang Clan.
In 2013, while sharpening her skills as a rap artist, Cocoa auditioned for the hit Fox show, X-Factor. She successfully advanced to the finals. Although she didn’t win the competition, it gave her a lot of exposure and opportunities to work with some of her favorite artists. After X Factor, Cocoa aggressively began pursuing her rap career performing around the country opening and performing with artists such as, Wu Tang, Dip Set, T.I., Murder Inc. and others. In the summer of 2015, Cocoa joined a new up and coming movement, Hazanati, which means power (Professionals Of War Engaged-In Reality)! She joined forces with the C.E.O., Devine X.O. who notably use to be the general manager for Wu Tang management and Protect Ya Neck Records.
While there are other highly skilled emcees on the roster, Cocoa is the 1st and only female artist representing Hazanati. Her first project is now completed and she is preparing to independently release the first single titled “Work”, which is a song about the struggle of people from various levels and professions in life putting in that work to be successful, especially women. Her focus is on continuing the empowerment of women primarily in the entertainment industry, but also in every area of the work force throughout the world!
Cocoa has demonstrated a hunger for excellence and personal maturity. It is her belief that with commitment, dedication, and devotion, she can achieve any goal she sets for herself and inspire those around her. Cocoa Brown is on her way up, “All the way up!”
