Camille Carlos, a.k.a. Thug Misses, is a seasoned Bay Area artist that is diversely blended with genetics, style, and West Coast culture. Hailing from Inglewood, but raised in the Bay Area, the Black and Latina prodigy has a naturally infused medley of flavor, creating her own eccentric genre.
Thug Misses sprouted on the scene during the time men dominated the industry. Women had to be seductive and lyrically lustrous to even be considered to the next level. Though she was lyrically gifted, her style reflected a sexy tomboy, similar to Dej Loaf and the late Aaliyah.
“I’ve always been kind of a tomboy, and I wanted to talk about things other than sex,” Thug Misses said. “I’m not knocking anyone’s style, I was just different. My style is more of having fun, getting money and living life. I want little girls to see that there are alternative avenues to rapping.”
