Audra the Rapper from "Sisterhood of Hip Hop" stars in the Oxygen reality docu-series.

Audra the Rapper's path to hip hop was an unlikely one. Born in Washington D.C., and raised in Richmond, Virginia, to a single mother and grandmother, Audra was forbidden to listen to rap music because of its often-violent nature. Instead, her childhood home was filled with the sounds of jazz, soul, and R&B, leading her to take a more musical approach to rap. Studying the styles of Tupac, Missy Elliott, and Lauryn Hill, Audra began writing poetry that later became the narrative to her raps. After rap-battling classmates during lunch and football games, she began taking the game more seriously.

At sixteen years old, she released her first offering "Sweet and Sour," that was sold at local car washes and neighborhood malls. Since that introductory mixtape, Audra has released three other EPs, most recently, "Retrospectrum." She is currently gearing up to release her fifth project, a conceptual body of work titled "Anti Love Songs," at the end of summer 2016. Audra's goal is to remain honest and outspoken in her music, as well as fearless in content, touching on topics that are seemingly taboo for female artists. Described as "Ratchet Soul," Audra the Rapper's sound is raw, unapologetic and often emotional.
