Never trust a pretty face and smile. The rapper La Femme Nikita is just as gully as Luc Besson's spy/assassin from the 1990 French action flick turned U.S. crossover phenomenon. Before giving in to her rapper persona, 21-year-old Natasha Walton was a songbird who became a finalist on season one of Making the Band 3. As fate would have it, she obviously didn't become a member of Danity Kane but that hasn't stopped her from continuing to pursue her dreams. Raised in Texarkana, TX, she was always singing but added rapping to her repertoire at age 13. "I remember hanging around my older brother and cousin, and wanting to be just like them. I wanted to be like the guys," says Nikita. "I wrote my first rap trying to impress them [and] they were like, "little girl get out of here!" Fostered by her "big momma" aka "Shotgun Annie," who told her she could do anything she put her mind to, quitting wasn't in her blood and that's why she never put down her rhyme book. With a recent appearance on Bet's Rap City, and her latest singles "Patrón" & "Flossin" currently receiving airplay on KZRB 103.5 FM & 99.7 FM KMJJ, servicing the four states area including Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana, this lyrical Femme Fatale is spitting, grinding and being as gangster as her name with a voice to match. Nikita charges the mic with estrogen but with bass in her voice à la Rah Digga circa '98 [BOSS circa '93]. In June, 2007 La Femme Nikita independently released her first album titled "nom de code: NIKITA," with a single and music video for "Ain't Nuthin." When asked about Hip-Hop today she says "I love the fact that artist such as myself, with a huge fan base have the option of being independent. I pocketed almost 90% of the return on my sales, moving a little over 50,000 units to date." Even though she was unfamiliar to some people outside the state of Texas, she had already sold enough records in her home state to be certified a veritable rap star. Media and press publications featuring La Femme Nikita include, Underwire Interactive Magazine, WHO?MAG TV & DVD Magazine, and WWS Magazine. Her feature in WWS's Vol. 11 garnered such a huge response, she was asked to do the cover of their Vol. 12 Indie Edition! La Femme Nikita's fan base more than doubled when her music video for Ain't Nuthin' premiered on BET.com. The success of her music video gained her an article in Vol.2, Issue 12 of Hip Hop Weekly, a full page tribute in Rap Fanatic Magazine, and a home page position on Billboard.com! La Femme Nikita was also most recently recognized by Digiwaxx.com's "The BLAST", Yo! Raps Magazine's "Next 2 Blow", and WORLDSTARHIPHOP.COM! Other industry talent gives her props as well, by recognizing her as a worthy collaborator. She was recently featured on a song called "That's My Boy," by Capitol Records recording artist Bossaliny, collaborated with DJ Kay Slay's artist Hedonis Da Amazon, Ma Barker, and was featured as a celebrity guest on DJ Ak of Shadyville DJ's, Take Over Radio Show on OC 103.9 FM. Speaking of DJs, she's also a favorite of the world renowned Slip N Slide DJs, and Fleet DJs. Her smash single "Patrón" is positioned at number 51 on the Clear Channel On- Demand Radio Charts, receiving mixtape placements earning her spins in the hottest night clubs through out the south. La Femme Nikita's new single "Flossin" is headed in the same direction, rapidly climbing the charts and prepping the world for more hot music. "I hustle and flow ya dig!" affirms La Femme NIKITA about her work ethic, "It's nothing but originality from ya guh!" Her street album, AmeriKKKan Gangstress is due to drop at the beginning of July, and her sophomore release, tentatively titled "Flossin," will follow at the end of the July. "From the poorest of hoods to the richest of suburbs, I got something for all of ya'll! Throw me in your disc changer and you're going to hear quality hip-hop." Like a sniper's bullet, shorty is dead serious. Competition is none.
