Ninety five (95), also known as Nine/five(9,5) is a female rap duo from the city of brotherly love, Philly! Their talents extend outside of the ordinary box, showing the versatility that 95 brings to the industry. Expect a sound that mimics modern day rap and r&b combined; a trap melodic feel, and sometimes a splash of pop. Not only do these ladies come handy with dope bars and soothing vocals, but their pen game is sharp as well! This entertaining duo began their music journey together in college at Penn State main campus.
Inspired by the following artists : Kanye, Tory lanez, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick, and other great artists that added something new or different to the game; 95 decided it was time to share their universal music and talents with the world. Starting with weekly freestyles on their social media platforms and performing at small venues and open mics, 95 soon began to drop music on all platforms. “Regardless” ep is their first official body of work and was released to the public October of 2021! Following that project 95 has released a holiday special and a single record “focus”! Both ladies in the duo have a passion for women empowerment and have a dream of out-rapping all the boys, as well as being mentioned in those conversations of the greats!
With more music and great opportunities arising for these stars in the making, 95 continues to create, inspire, and plans to be the talk of the city in no time!
Also known as Majorkey/highkey, grew up all around Philadelphia while her divorced parents frequently moved. She would split her time equally with her mom & dad, with her mom being the outspoken life of the party & her dad being the introspective free thinker. It was this collision of two totally different worlds that Quianna feels is the birth of her unique musical style. While hip hop is her favorite genre of music, she grew up listening to everything from Paramore to Lauryn Hill. She credits her main inspirations as Kendrick Lamar & Drake, with the ability to rap about socially conscious material in addition to writing love songs and music that can cross genres.
After attending central with her best friend Jada, and then going on to the same college Penn State, their musical interests started to seriously align when they formed 95 back in 2016. Along with music, Majorkey is extremely interested in psychology/mental health, and particularly tackling the stigma it holds within the black community. She hopes to one day make it big so she can give back to the community who made her who she is today. Majorkey is also the creative editor of the newly founded digital magazine, Satisfy.
Also known as Jay the jet, grew up in north and west Philadelphia. With a passion for music since a child, it wasn’t until high school that jada fell in love with rap. At a young age Jada and her siblings were a part of a choir at camp and they’d put on multiple shows with singing and dancing for their families at home. With personal inspirations from artists such as, Beyoncé, Rhiana, Jhene Aiko, Partynextdoor, Sza, and many more, Jada had always dreamed of being a singer or entertainer of some sort. Aside from music, Jada has a fond love for animals, children, food and giving back. When she met her bestie quianna at central high, she realized they shared the same love for music and knew it was destined that they enjoy their talents together and create greatness. With a signature sound and distinct voice, Jada has found a way to ride any beat and bring her Philly attitude with her on it!
