LiL SASSy aka Rachel Tess Minnick was born 1988, in the small town of Havre, MT (population 10,000). She made a name for herself by starting out as a very controversial rapper, to a new & improved sober, Christian rapper.
Since the co~founding of her entertainment company Underground Boss Chick Entertainment (formerly known as UBB ENT) she has distributed approximately 1,000 custom hand~made MiXtApEs from all over the US to Italy. She started out by promoting other underground artists to soon making enough songs to produce her very own MiXtApE. Almost every MiXtApE is made unique with different songs & pictures because her material is constantly changing. She even reached as high as #3 on the Reverbnation Charts for Missoula, MT. But since her recent change she has decided to give up almost all of her inappropriate material to be a better influence to the world & start fresh. She is currently rebuilding her name in a brighter light & plans to release a EP by the end of 2015. Her most recent MiXtApE out for 2015 includes 8 of her new songs, as well as other inspiring artists she promotes. The current MiXtApE is a combination of Christian Hip Hop, Dubstep, Native American Hip Hop, Christian Contemporary, Foreign influence, & hip hop about real life struggles.
She entered into the entertainment world in elementary school where she competed in lip syncing contests & landed 2 lead roles in some big name plays at the time. The first was **The Wiz of The West**, put on by the Missoula Children*s Theatre, where she played Dorothy in reference to the Wizard of Oz. Later she played the main character in a play called **Don*t Give Up**, a true quote she lives by. Then in 2008 she began modeling in photo shoots & fashion shows, back~up dancing & hyping , acting in music videos, promoting, designing clothes, & hosting well~known artists such as: Mike Jones, Hopsin, Swizz, Devin the Dude, Afroman, Strange Music Group, Pot Luck, & Kotten Mouth Kings. After her high profile on again off again, relationship with rapper Koshir (now signed to Universal Records), she decided to start rapping for 2 reasons. 1, because it had always been a dream of hers, & 2, to express the pain it caused her to date a rapper & to be addicted to drugs & alcohol. She soon started to get involved in free~style battles & was disqualified at one in Spokane for being so good they thought she had pre~ wrote her material. At this time she started taking artistically advanced classes at the University of Montana like: Singing for Actors, Hip Hop Dance, Salsa, Tribal~Style Belly Dance, African Dance, Modern Dance, Ballet, Jazz Dance, Zumba, Israeli Dance, & was a member of 2 dance teams known as **The Galaxy GoGo*s** & **The Missou Booty Krew**. The booty~shakin skills she acquired while on the team later led her to win 2 Booty~shakin contests out in Tacoma & Centralia WA & third place in a bikini competition. She then had enough status to start throwing her own shows, getting songs & ads on the radio, doing interviews, & modeling in nearly 50 photo shoots as of today.
In 2013 she graduated from the U of M with a BA in Sociology & moved to Seattle to seriously pursue her dream as an entertainer. She finally released her very own music video, but it*s now too explicit for her to promote any longer. Just 3 months after moving to the big city she became homeless & checked herself into rehab. After being released, she now has more motivation & energy than ever to succeed. She now works full-time as a Latin/Ballroom dance teacher in Bellevue to fund her entertainment career & just recently opened for her first big name artists **Rappin 4~Tay** & **2Piece**. She also won $500 & an honorable mention for creating a rap song & video for Safelite Autoglass.
She will never forget her past that got her to where she is today, but her new goal in life is to glorify God & make Christian Music as fun & desirable as the rest of the mainstream music. She wants to make music for the world that every age group & personality can enjoy.
