Mercedes: From Talent Show To No Limit Army
After turning up on releases from Master P and Mia X, Mercedes recently became a full-blown No Limit soldier with the release of her solo album, "Rear End."
The rapper will support the effort with a slot on the upcoming No Limit Army tour along with P, Snoop Dogg, Silkk The Shocker, Mystikal, Mia X, and C-Murder.
While things are rolling in high gear now, there was a time not so long ago (1996 to be exact) when Mercedes was just another student at New Orleans' Xavier University.
"I did a talent show and some people heard me and asked me if I would be willing to be featured on some things," she told the MTV Radio Network. "Later that week, they picked me up and took me to the studio and I sung a few bars, and I've been around ever since."
She'll be around even more when the No Limit Army tour gets rolling on August 6. Here's where you can catch Mercedes, Master P, Snoop Dogg, and the rest:
