At the curve of becoming a teenager, HoodCelebrityy relocated to the states. HoodCelebrityy landed in the northernmost of 5 bouroughs in the concrete jungle, New York City, The Bronx. “At the age of 14, I chose to focus on dancing and music”, states HoodCelebrityy.” The thought provoking question, why the name HoodCelebrityy arises amongst many inquiring minds. HoodCelebrityy explains, “Im a hustler at heart and Ive done it all. I worked in one of the most popular urban clothing stores in the Bronx on Fordham Road, to running around in these crazy streets with my family trying to trap a dollar. Whether it was Clothing, music, or street sh*t, I could move it. At my store I was the girl that would get you right, Hood says with a laugh. All the customers looked towards me to put together that special outfit for the wkd. While at work, I would upload quick 15 second video freestyles that started to go viral. My instagram page started to become very popular at the same time Ive solidified a reputation on the street as the girl not to be played with, thus the name HoodCelebrityy.
