'Call me Miss Monroe!' - CT's hottest hip-hop sensation

If you haven’t heard of Miss Patty Monroe before, hold on to your hats, because she's coming to a stage near you!

Born and raised in Cape Town, the blonde-haired firecracker is a dynamic MC who’s changing the face of the female rap game.

With her own inimitable style, this 20-something dynamo is taking no prisoners when it comes to what she wants and the message she wants to deliver - and that message is all about staying true to yourself.

Monroe credits her brother with her introduction to the music scene.

I went to my brother and said, 'I want to be a rapper'...he gave me an A4 book and said 'fill this book up and then I can take you seriously, then you can come to the studio.'

She's also worked with some of the leading producers in the industry, including Sketchy Bongo and Ameen Harron.

Monroe says a follow-up album is in the works.
