Spitting sharp rhymes with sassy attitude, Lady Te initially made noise in her Detroit hometown as a teen with the club hit, 'I Know I Look Good (Ponytail).' Her music and personality reflect her profound respect for TLC's Left Eye, but her hard swagger and dancerap inclinations are modeled after other influential rappers MC Lyte, Missy Elliott, and Ludacris. A loyal Detroiter since birth, Terra Twymon tried to start rapping around age ten. She was always a gifted student, and even had a poem published when she was in middle school. On top of her academic awards and other normal worries of a high schooler, she offered her first fulllength album, TerraFied, in 2006. Much like the 'Ponytail' song, TerraFied contained many hard club tracks full of synths and lyrics imbued with her selfconfidence. - Cyril Cordor, All Music Guide myspace.com/ladyte youtube.com/ladyte20 ladyteonline.com.
