At first glance, many would not expect this young, blonde girl to have achieved so much in the rap game. Wynne, a self-taught lyrical heavy hitter from Portland, OR, feeds her energy through a world that has stereotyped her abilities. Since the age of nine, Wynne has been honing in on her talent for words, rhythm, and melodies by writing and performing her own rap music. She describes her musical style as Kendrick Lamar with a feature from Julie Andrews. By the age of 20, Wynne has garnered attention from some of the most impactful entrepreneurs, writers, artists, and executives in the music industry for her strong-headed nature, natural talent in front of a mic, and unmatched work ethic. Wynne’s career began to expand when Snoop Dogg got a hold of one of her videos and it hasn’t slowed down since. Not only is Wynne typically the youngest in the room, but also the only woman. She hopes to inspire other young women to fight for what they believe and become bosses on their own terms. Frequently referred to by fans as Wynnie (referencing the character Winnie the Pooh), this self-proclaimed “Queen Honeypot” packs surprises in every punch of her artistry.
