Stacy Epps

One event stands out in emcee/songstress/musical super-heroine Stacy Epps' memory as a pivotal point in her evolution. In 2005, she visited Cape Town, South Africa for six weeks. Early into her trip, she was hanging out at a local hip-hop club when fate threw a golden moment her way.

One event stands out in emcee/songstress/musical super-heroine Stacy Epps' memory as a pivotal point in her evolution. In 2005, she visited Cape Town, South Africa for six weeks. Early into her trip, she was hanging out at a local hip-hop club when fate threw a golden moment her way. "This guy came up to me and asked me if I was Stacy Epps," she recounts, still blown by the experience a full year later.

"It just blew me away that he recognized me, that people really research me to even find out what I look like. Then they played my record in the club. It was just amazing to me how far my music had spread, and that people in the Muthaland were familiar with and appreciated my music." The song the deejay played that night was "Eye", a track from MF DOOM and Madlib's collaboration album Madvillainy (Stone's Throw, 2004) which Stacy guest appeared on, propelling her to buzz status on the independent hip-hop scene. And her chance encounter that night in Cape Town was, much like the song itself, one more in a long procession of signs that line the road to her destiny as a vocalist without boundaries, a singing, rapping, vibing conductor of emotion, soul and sweet spirit.

Like all superheroes, it is a destiny that took her a while to fully embrace. Stacy's powers began developing from the day she hit the ground. Born of mixed heritage (Black, Japanese and Native American) to military parents who spread her childhood between Georgia, Virginia, Washington D.C., North Carolina, Germany and Hawaii. She is a child of the world, from the places and experiences that shaped her to the blood that runs through her veins. ...show less
