Block Starz Music Signs 'White Girl Raps Fast' Youtube Sensation, Lega-C

German-American digital imprint Block Starz Music, www.blockstarzmusic.com, has announced the signing of Tulsa, Oklahoma rapper/singer/producer Lega-C, whose viral video, "White Girl Raps Fast", has generated nearly 70,000 views on Youtube in less than three months. The multi-talented artist will announce the signing tonight during a live Ustream interview/performance on the Zedalza Entertainment Network, www.zedalza.net, at 8:15 PM CST/ 9:15 PM EST.

Lega-C was brought to the attention of Block Starz Music executives by a fan who submitted her video to the music company's website. "Honestly, we we're expecting it to be nonsense," says Peppy Johnson, Block Starz vice-president of A&R. "But from the moment she started rapping, her skill and talent level were undeniable. We believe, with a strong team around her, she has enormous commercial potential."

Originally from Michigan, the 25-year-old Hip-Hop artist, born Danielle McLean, wrote her first rap in church at age 10 and hasn't looked back since. After a brief stint with Swisha House in Houston, Lega-C returned to Oklahoma and released her self-produced debut album, Underestimated, which she sold over 5000 units of independently from the trunk of her car and online. She was also nominated for "Hip-Hop Artist of the Year" at the Tulsa World Spot Awards, in addition to being featured in various local news outlets.

Lega-C will be featured on the upcoming "Midwest Block Starz: Reloaded" compilation and will release her major label-distributed solo project through Block Starz Music in 2012.
