Michie Mee (Michelle McCullock)
Origin: Jamaica - Toronto, Ontario
Michie Mee has performed as a hip-hop artist in real life, and portrayed one on television. The Canadian rapper has recorded a few tunes, and appeared as the opening act for major stars such as Judy Mowatt, Salt 'N Pepa, Queen Latifah, and Dream Warriors. Mee also landed acting parts in movies like The Jimi Hendrix Story and In Too Deep, and the television series Drop the Beat, La Femme Nikita, and Traders.
Canadian native Michie Mee was only 14 years old when she began performing professionally. Her talents soon landed her larger gigs, and with time brought her a recording contract that allowed her popularity to cross the border over into the United States. Her first album, Jamaican Funk: Canadian Style, hit the market in 1991. Some of the tracks from the debut are "Get It Together," "All Night Stand," "You're Feisty," "Kotch," and "If Only They Knew."
Through the '90s, Mee toured and opened for other acts, but turned a lot of her attention toward putting down roots for an acting career. She did a lot of guest spots before auditioning in the late summer of 1998 for a role in a new series called Drop the Beat. Mee landed that role, and became the co-star of the show, playing the part of a hip-hop queen known as Divine. During this time, after a long break from recording, Michie Mee finally began working on a sophomore full-length offering, The First Cut Is the Deepest. The songs on this second album carry a smooth mixture of reggae and hip-hop.
