YoUnG VaEh  - My name is Nevaeh Aaliyah Miller Canady. Born and raised in Cincinnati Ohio I've started my rap career at the age of 11. There's more to my story that you might not know which would be including that i've had 3 major brain surgeries when i was younger. Nothing stopped me from making music though. Ever since i heard nicki Minaj i went for it. My first single was fresha. That hit home for me. Even though im not famous, fame isn't what my goal is. I want people to know me for my personality and not just my music. Im very kind hearted and if you get to know me you'll probably never leavee. But without my mom i wouldn't be where I am now.
