Nina B Pays Tribue to Madonna with The Icon

April 28, 2008

Nina B is a native New Yorker born in the Bronx and raised in Brooklyn.  Hip-hop is her genre and every rhyme she writes brings her one step closer to carving what will soon become her legacy in the history of the music genre.  From her old school style to her lyrical flow, Nina B embodies and echos the sounds of hip-hop legends like Roxanne Shante, MC Lyte and Salt n Pepa. Combine that with the swagger and dynamics of hip-hop’s new era, and what you have is a street certified industry recognized hip-hop icon.

On April 6th, Ravenel Records released Nina B’s sixth highly anticipated mix-tape, The Icon.  Hosted by Hot 97’s Dee Vazquez, The Icon boasts twelve songs that undeniably merge the sounds of pop music and hip-hop to perfection. Nina B pays tribute to Madonna as she lays her versatile, one of a kind flow over some of Madonna’s most classic tracks. She takes it a step further, displaying her raw talent with a remake of “Material Girl,” one of Madonna’s most popular and memorable songs. When asked about her new mix-tape and the concept of combining pop and hip-hop, Nina B explains “Madonna has always been at the top of the pop charts and has been looked upon as a musical icon since I can remember. I thought creatively it would be a wonderful idea to combine such dynamic genres of music as pop and hip-hop. The music world is in for a treat. The Icon is definitely not your average mix-tape!”
