Born in the fall of 1991 NoName is an American female rapper from Chicago. She began as a rapper during a competition she entered in 2010. More recognition came in 2013 when she appeared on a mixtape by Chance the Rapper. Next came her own mixtape in 2016 called Telefone. Praise followed and a debut full length album, Room 25, just a few months ago.
Acclaim has followed everything she has done. With a solid background this should come as no surprise. At a young age her musical world was made up of Buddy Guy and Howlin’ Wolf. She hung around her mother’s bookstore and began to write slam poetry. Became friends with local rappers like Chance the Rapper. That led to an appearnce on Saturday Night Live with him. People sat up and took notice. Rolling Stone named her one of the best rappers today. NoName has cited such musicians as Kanye West, Missy Elliott, Andre 3000, and Avril Lavigne as influences.
As a result of all this, the show is sold out.
