Cha'keeta B (born as Lauren Riggins) is a lyrical emcee from Austin Texas, providing you rap with substance. She grew up listening to a plethora of artists and genres but her first love was always writing. Majority of her writings were inspired by artists / poets like Jill Scott. Since 2011 she's accomplished things like ; dropping two mixtapes and two EP’s, performing as an official SXSW artist several times and opening up for mainstream artists like "Slim Thug" , "Naughty By Nature" , “Tink” , “Wu-Tang Clan”, “Oshun” “Z-Ro” and many others. She's also known for bringing the community of Austin together for a good cause e.g : she's put together Christmas charity events like "Rap 4 A Reason" where people donate gifts for the less fortunate children of east Austin. She also started a annual natural hair festival “Kinky Curly Coily Fest” celebrating black women, men and children with natural hair. After recently releasing her eleventh music video to her single “The Come Up” and currently working on her third EP she has zero intentions of slowing down.
