Miny maybe small in stature but she never shies away from big challenges. Not too long ago Mindy DuPonte could be found screaming at the top of her lungs on stage to a crowd filled with heavy metal fans. She quickly made a name for herself as the lead singer and drummer of metal band Hellen but metal never felt like home. As a drummer she admired the way hip-hop artists such as Missy Elliott were rhyming over simple to complex drumbeats taking the music to different heights. Eventually hip-hop, with its versatility and realism, became a way of life for DuPonte. With a newfound inspiration Mindy became Miny, a fierce female MC with an ear for beats and the want to add another dimension to ever growing genre of hip-hop.
