The hip hop world is falling in love with hip hop artist Ladybug Mecca. The Ladybug buzz is a breath of fresh air. The Grammy award winner has charm, allure, and is adored for her gift for penning unique and memorable music. Gearing up for the street release of her latest project, the hip hop pioneer continues to offer fresh, creative and organic sounds that influence different generations.

If you didn''t know, Ladybug is hotter than ever. If guest appearing in west coast hip hop icon Snoop Dogg's latest video for his current single "Candy" wasn''t enough, the hip hop businesswoman turns around and lands a feature spot on the remix.

“I had to get on it” Ladybug told us. “Candy”, in which Snoop samples Mecca’s voice (‘You want ‘em, I got ‘em; drippin’ like water’), features a full line up of west coast hip hop and rap veterans namely E-40, Kurupt, Daz, MC Eiht and Goldie Loc. The video recently aired on BET as the “New Joint of the Week”.

Following up her independently released debut album "Trip The Light Fantastic", the Brazilian born poet/singer announces the release of a 12 inch Vinyl EP for the catchy single “Dogg Starr” remixed with the wizardry of Kenny Dope (Masters at Work) behind the boards and the sultry sounds of soul music’s next savior Raheem Devaughn. “Dogg Starr” is currently on I Tunes and distributed to DJ’s by Digiwaxx. When purchasing the “Dogg Starr” 12’ EP consumers are treated to other fan favorites like “Sexual Alchemy”, “If I Need to Move On (Sometimes)” and the original version of “Dogg Starr” Produced by Ayatollah (Mos Def “Ms Fat Booty”).

Already heralded as a sure shot, “Dogg Starr”, will be launched through OM Records and distributed world-wide. Mecca teamed up with Directors Bobby Yans and Julian Renner to shoot the video for the remix, which is scheduled for an early January release to be seen on Fuse, MTV, BET and VH1.
