Peyton is a rapper from Philly whose lyrical delivery summons visions of a hip hop dynamo with more years in the game than this young lady. Whitneys collaborations include projects with other Grammy winners like Lazie Bone Bone Thugs N Harmony and Gangsta Boo Three 6 Mafia.The Grammy!Hip hop is Peytons main genre however, in 2011 Whitney showed her artistic versatility by taking writing and recording gigs on an anti-bullying album geared towards children titled “All about Bullies…Big and Small.” The album was a hit and gained attention by winning a Grammy Award for “Best Childrens Album” at the 54th annual Grammy Awards in 2012, as well as Parents Choice Gold Award from the Parents Choice Foundation.Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, her firecracker personality is totally in line with that citys musical history and the stellar performers from that area who came before her.
