    Hip Hop Will Never Die [2009]


    Spoken Word (born as Sharon Lawrence), formerly known as Lady Vixen is an American hip hop/spoken word artist and activist. She is widely regarded as an important contributor to the humanitarian efforts through hip hop and spoken word. She rose to prominence in the underground hip hop scene in Suffolk, Virginia and since then has become internationally known.

    Early Life

    Spoken was born in Suffolk, Virginia on October 7, 1978. She grew up in a low income neighborhood during the crack era. She was the middle child of four in a single parent home. She began rapping at age 9, but did not pursue a career as a female rap artist until the late 90's. She performed at school events and community events where education was the key topic. Spoken studied religion at Tidewater Community College. While attending college she became more knowledgeable on small business management and the legalities behind it. She also studied African American History which would later become her biggest influence to promote change within African American communities throughout the world.


    After performing with group South Side Soldiers for a few years, she began to focus more on spoken word. In May of 2009 she released her first solo album, Hip Hop Will Never Die". The actual song, Hip Hop Will Never Die spread to areas such as Poland and the United Kingdom. Time and The Real American Dream, which was also produced on that album, gave her notoriety within spoken word communities throughout the American nation. She released her second album, "After the Pain" on July 24, 2010. Releases from her second album such as The Realness, Ghost Town Anthem and Victim of Society, expanded her fan base into countries such as South Africa and Kenya. Her next album is said to be released in 2013.

    Political and Social Causes

    In 2009, Spoken Word recorded and produced victim of Society to address domestic violence, rape, and child molestation issues throughout the world. After performing at the very first Rally to Free the Scott Sisters who were convicted of orchestrating a 1993 armed robbery in Forest, Mississippi. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_sisters, Spoken Word produced, "Breaking the Chains", in an effort to address the Scott Sisters Case as well as the United States political justice system.

    Business Ventures

    In April of 2010, Spoken Word created Word Life Production. In the beginning her intent was to create an outlet for social change, social political justice, community empowerment, economic development and diversity. Since then, the outlet has become a place to promote N.E.W. artists within the underground urban hip hop scene. Through Word Life Production, Spoken promoted over 40 newly established artists through her television network. www.wordlifeproduction.spruz.com
