Meet Bates

Award-winning St. Louis, Missouri native Bates has been setting the tone for hip-hop artists for over a decade. Her brash and lyrical performance is unmatched, raising the bar for both men and women in the music industry. Bates' versatility and ability to have a strong presence at every intersection gained her national and local recognition.  

The epitome of self-made, the Midwest firecracker writes for herself and others, produces, engineers, writes and directs her own videos and is self-managed. Her independence and "no mercy" approach has changed the way women are viewed and represented in entertainment. Described as a true fighter and leader, the musical prodigy founded the largest all-female indie concert, Femfest, in 2013.
