The “Legacy” of Wonda Woman

Wonda Woman aka Dyana Prinze hails from Brooklyn, NY where she grew up in a family with strong musical influences. Her father, Omatangu, was a grass-roots Reggae artist from St. Vincent and the Grenadines known for his song “Slave Driver”, and her cousin Alston “Becket” Cyrus (ABC) was also a Soca/Calypso artist who had a big hit called Teaser (1991). As one can see, music is embedded in Wonda Woman’s DNA.

Wonda Woman’s rap legacy starts with her contributions to the legendary hip-hop group, Wu-Tang Clan. After meeting RZA, she was honored to ink and sing the hook to the hit song Tragedy (Rhyme-N-Reason Soundtrack), not to mention So High, Wu-Revolution (Forever) and Skrilla (A Son Unique), which features RZA and the God ODB (RIP).

This dynamic lyricist has amassed a credible catalog of music with contributions to various Wu-compilations, such as her single Ask’n U 2 Stayproduced by Bronze Nazareth, which features on the “WU-LADIES: Mothers, Sisters, Daughters… compiled by WTCF.

Over the years, Wonda Woman has grown into a solid hip-hop artist with her own unique sound. Her breakthrough song “Hit the Floor” produced by DJ Scratch received well-deserved accolades as Unsigned Champ on Future Flava for three weeks straight by DJ Marley Marl. Check out her Underestimated project hosted by DJ Flipciyde, released last year, which features her self-titled track “Wonda Woman”.

Wonda Woman is featured on three songs from Cappadonna’s historical rap album the Hook Off. The only rap album with no hooks just straight bars featuring some of the industry’s hottest rappers. We look forward to hearing more heat from this powerhouse emcee when Cappadonna’s “Hook Off 2” drops (TBA).

Just last week she released her first single “Legacy” produced by Buff Baggwell off her highly anticipated “Legacy” project, which embodies a hard hittin’ gritty Brooklyn style blended with a poetic flair only Wonda Woman can achieve.
