Victoria Anderson, aka VAthaBossChick, brings hydration to a thirsty industry. Not solely as a Female Hip Hop Artist, but as a chameleon that has weathered many of life’s storms. Through music she shares her story with the world and her lyrics paint portraits of sunshine, rain, money, power and respect. Respect well deserved as a businesswoman, mother of two and vicious female lyricist. Born in Columbia South Carolina, VA gained a close and personal glance at the lives of hustlers, dealers and users. Forced to move around with various family members and through foster care, VA gravitated initially to poetry as an outlet of expression to deal with the weight of this lifestyle. By age 13, it evolved into a love and passion for music. Citing Foxy Brown as her main influence, VA admired Foxy’s tough delivery and gritty expression. Fully embracing the artistry of Hip Hop, VA referred to herself early on as “22”, a young gun filled with emotion that could explode at any minute. By age 15, VA was signed to Diron Records, an experience she values as a first taste and glance at the recording and artist development process. A few years later she joined Drama City Records, and it was at this point that her rap moniker changed to the initials VA. Due to circumstance she soon found herself apart of the very hustle she’d seen earlier in life and also experienced the loss of a child. However by 2005, VA’s drive and hunger for success propelled her to start her own record label, U No Entertainment. Both street smart and business savvy, VA sold seven thousand copies of her first mixtape, Chill With A Boss, garnered many magazine appearances and won 2009 South Carolina Music Award for Female Hip Hop Artist Of The Year and Best Video Of The Year for “Star“. At this stage in the business, her main focus and goal is to take her music career to the next level and expand throughout the world. “I take my negatives and turn them into positives. I want to take my career to it’s highest peak, focus on music and do the right thing,” adds VA. It’s evident that she has arrived to the music industry to revitalize a dying breed of female lyricists….like only a true boss chick can.
