Mia Young (born January 9, 1970), better known by her stage name Mia X, is a former female American rapper and was the first female emcee to get a contract with rapper/entrepreneur Master P on his successful record label No Limit Records. In 1992, she released a single titled “Ask Them Niggas.” It appeared on her 1993 EP, "Da Payback". From 1995 to 1998, Mia X released three albums for No Limit: Good Girl Gone Bad, Unlady Like, and Mama Drama. The second was certified gold by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000 copies.
Although there is much misinformation on the web about Mia X getting her rap career started in Queens. Mia X and her career are both New Orleans born and raised. The launch of her career was an EP she collaborated with on with Master P called "Good Girl Gone Bad" in 1995.
Mia X reappeared on the hip hop scene in late 1996 with a track called "Verbal Assault" that was produced by Donald XL Robertson on the Southern Smoke mixtape series. The song included a refrain with the words "Guess Who's Back?" which led to some speculation that she might be working on a new album.
