Cassandra the Goddess MC is a rising artist, holding true to the New York essence. As a native to Hempstead and L.I., aliased Lil Dun, Cassandra was steeped in raw production and real lyrics; pushing a young Goddess to freestyle and rap at a tender age. With a love for hip-hop and writing she moved to Michigan as a teen, giving access to Detroit music. She then continued school at Michigan State receiving a degree in English. Finding way back home to NYC through teaching, attended LIU in Brooklyn receiving a Masters in Education. Cassandra has taught in multiple high schools in New York and is passionate about her city’s youth. As a child cut from the cultures’ cloth, Cassandra was always in cyphers, sharpening her literary/emcee swords. Recognized and saluted by many Detroit and New York legends she released The 8 Mixtape: Destroy and Rebuild introducing the Goddess’ bars with support from 354/DBlock. Her debut album Girl By Door, LP out now in all digital-stores, is a portal into her life, artistic vision and testament to her skill level and ability to curate a project independently. However she has worked with, learned from and been able to build with legends such as Styles P, A.G. of DITC, Roxanne Shant e/JUICE Crew, Psycho Les of Beatnuts, Baatin (Slum VIllage), DJ BoogieBlind (X-Cutioners), Mobb Deep, Bonz Malone, ATCQ and LOX/D-Block. The journey and connections continue beyond coincidence for a woman with a story to tell. Earning the name Goddess proving amongst gods of the game, through talent, knowledge and a namesake linked to mythology, hip-hop’s daughter doing it for NY. Get familiar! Goddess MC taking the mic.
