A Breathe of Fresh Air for Hip Hop
Hip Hop Saved My Life
She Real is a Harlem, NY native whose love for music began by watching her father write and record songs in their living room as a child. Her father, fostering her passion, encouraged her to write her first song at nine; but over a decade would pass before she ever considered music as a career.
She Real spent the next ten years chasing her dream of becoming a professional basketball player, until having an experience that completely changed her life. She Real was sexually assaulted by her then-boyfriend, and basketball was no longer enough to maintain her sanity. Music became a vice that assisted in transforming her pain into power. Choosing to pursue it as a career not only helped her find her voice but get her life back on track. Since then She Real has been performing and consistently releasing original music in hopes of inspiring others to channel their pain through something positive as well.
On May 8, 2020, She Real released her eighth project entitled "Hi Cherelle". Continuously working; she has been featured on United Masters' Hitboy beatexchange competition, 300 Entertainment unplugged, Hot 97's Loaded Lux's Top Shelf Freestyle, Jermaine Dupri's So So Def Women's Cypher, BET Jams: Versed, Sway in the Morning (on four separate occasions), and as an opening act on the 2018 Joyner Lucas "I'm Kind Of A Big Deal Tour". She’s also made appearances in well-known publications such as Billboard, All Hip Hop, HipHopSince1987, Hip Hop Weekly, XXL, and Mechanical Dummy. She Real has had the opportunity to open up for artists such as Black Rob, Juelz Santana, and Styles P. She Real’s also toured colleges like Syracuse University, Howard University, NYU, and more.
