Chicago native Fatimah Warner also known as hip-hop artist “Noname” debuted her first album “Telefone” in July 2016.

Growing up in the Bronzeville neighborhood, Warner started writing slam poetry in 2010 and freestyle rapping with her friends. Nearly three years later Warner started to gain attention after being featured on Chance the Rapper’s track “Lost” from his album “Acid Rap.” She was also featured on Mick Jenkins’ mixtape “The Waters,” contributing to the track “Comfortable,” and more.

Warner announced the start of her debut album in 2013, and took nearly three years to complete it. Needless to say, “Telefone” was well worth the wait. Ten tracks were made inspired by all of the 25-year-old’s valuable telephone calls she’s had.

Her one-of-a kind style and passion makes Warner so unique and intriguing. Warner incorporated slam poems into her songs while singing and rapping. “Noname” creates music to speak up about issues concerning black women and her hardships growing up in Illinois.

Although Warner’s songs are very personal and uncensored , she stays very quiet in matter of the press and interviews. Warner rarely speaks outside of her music and social media. Her Twitter account @noname has given her a huge platform of nearly 100,000 followers where she speaks out about issues concerning People Of Color (POC) and the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Warner already broke boundaries by being one of the first upcoming female rappers since Nicki Minaj. Selling out nearly every show on her first tour, “NoName” is definitely an artist to look out for.
