Nina Dioz

A "Nueva Escuela" MC straight from the underground of Monterrey, Mexico
Living my life, I won’t be hurt again- stronger than a hurricane.
lyrics from Stronger Than A Hurricane

Straight from the underground of Monterrey, Mexico, Niña Dioz is a part of the “Nueva Escuela” (New School) of MCs in Mexico and has been making a name for herself in the male-dominated scene. Her unique style and look set her apart immediately and she has spent the last few years creating music, releasing mixtapes, and setting up her own tours that have taken her all across Mexico, as well as Argentina, Chile, Los Angeles, New York City and Nepal.

Niña Dioz has worked with many well-known Latin Urban producers including Alejandro Rosso from Plastilina Mosh, Toy Selectah from Control Machete, Erick Santos de La Flor De Lengua y DJ Milkman. She takes her role in furthering the exposure of Latin Hip Hop seriously and in October of 2012 she single handedly organized the first Urban Music festival in Mexico City called Urban New Wavers.

In April of 2013 she made her Miami debut at the Billboard Latin Music Conference’s Official Kick Off Party to a standing-room-only audience and simultaneously released her first album, the self-released, Indestructible, on April 30th, which features Ximena Sariñana on the title track. Her most recent single and video “2 Cool 4 School” shows her cheeky style and unique flow and the album, which is available on iTunes, was given 3 out of 4 stars by People En Español.
