Curshawn D. Watts better known as Mrs. Black Dyamond, was born In Compton, California. Her strong desire to entertain was evident at the tender age of 4. Despite being raised up in the cut throat streets of Compton, she matured early and turned to music instead of a life beckoning from the streets. Luckily Hip-Hop legends such as Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill, Da Brat and Missy Elliott inspired the young melanated girl. These women influenced her not to conform to her harsh environment but instead, to be transformed positively by it. Writing, singing, acting, dancing and rapping are just a few of many talents that this Diamond in a rough was blessed with. Her focus at this point is songwriting and rapping. Mrs. Black Dyamond is a strong lyricist and has been an inspiration to many young women in her community. Not only is her voice raspy and one of a kind but her delivery is equally thrilling. Her conceptualization of songs, lyrics, melodies and rhythms are brilliant. She's written hits such as "Selfie", “Shotgun”, and "Levitate" which are the first singles on her up and coming project titled "Queen of Compton". Mrs. Black Dyamond's approach to the game of Hip Hop is deeply passionate and strong. Thus, her performance and stage presence inevitably command the attention of her audience. As a female artist, Mrs. Black Dyamond often referred to as the "Gun Bar Goddess" strives to be well rounded and uses her words of wisdom, her sex appeal and her gritty style to separate her from the rest. Her style has been described in the likeness of a female version of Kendrick Lamar and she is the sorely needed female presence that the Westcoast is missing. She has been compared to Remy Ma, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Young M.A. and Shawnna. In 2004, this Hip Hop hopeful landed her music on MTV's Making the Band 4 executive produced by Sean P. Diddy Combs. In December 2014 she shook up the female battle rap world when she debuted on the top female battle rap league "Queen of The Ring". She then adopted the acronym M.B.D short for Mrs. Black Dyamond. October 2016 she was given the opportunity to battle Dizaster at Drake's Birthday Bash. She is set to debut a few singles soon. Currently, her present mixtape “No Filterz” is now streaming via Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music and more. She is also working on her E.P. entitled “The Queen of Compton” set for release early Spring 2019. With her knowledge and will power, she has challenged Willie Lynch's theory "Seeds of Separations", the light skin versus dark skin ignorance in our society today. Mrs. Black Dyamond has truly paid her dues and has risen to become "The Queen of Compton".
