From acting as musical director for world-renowned stars like Beyoncé and South Korean K-Pop group 2NE1, to recording  with hit magnet Will.I.Am and respected musician Victor Wooten, Divinity  Roxx has made her mark in the music business.
Now, the Atlanta,  Georgia native is ready to set her already accomplished legacy in stone with her  solo debut.
On October 16, 2012, Divinity Roxx will  release her first EP, The Roxx Boxx Experience via her  own iRoxx Entertainment. The seven-track original project includes appearances  from funk legend Bootsy Collins and Southern rap veteran  Killer Mike, all graced by Divinity’s unique brand of  musicianship and lyrical firepower.
Although she is currently touring in Japan with 2NE1Divinity Roxx will travel to New York in early October for some special appearances, followed by more dates in Europe and Asia.
Much like Divinity’s live performances, The Roxx Boxx  Experience EP is the  ultimate mash-up of hip-hop and rock – blatant, boisterous and  unconventional.
“I like that my album doesn’t sound like anything else we put it up  against,” Divinity explains. “I like that it is honest; it is  bold. It is edgy and hard! Any good art expresses itself beyond itself. This  mashing up of rock and hip hop allows me to do just that, express the epitome of  myself, the whole of myself, the musician and the writer, the performer and the  artist.”
Although picking favorite songs is never easy for an artist, Divinity feels  that a couple of tracks on Roxx Boxx will stand out to listeners. “‘Get Yo Fix‘ is about the beginnings of me, and what made  me who I am. I like the honesty on that song,” Divinity asserts.Snap’ features Bootsy Collins, and  is a throwback to straight emceeing. It’s another take on my story, in a more  blatant and unforgiving way. It’s the evolution of me and who I am, and an ode  to all the obstacles and people who made me feel like my art was  meaningless.
“Meanwhile, ‘Get Here‘ is deeply personal, but also global  since the words could affect so many people. There’s something to be said about  being a Black woman from the South who was raised economically poor, but vastly  wealthy in matters of love and ideals. Something about this song expresses that  for me.”
While she has put the range of fierce heart to fragile emotions into the  songwriting on The Roxx Boxx Experience,  Divinity has very simple hopes for the way fans relate to  her.
“The only thing I want people to know at this point in my career is that I  am here. I am bold. I am unapologetic. I have lived an amazing story, and it’s  all true. I want to encourage people to live their story and inspire people to  continue to move forward, move beyond, explore, and seek more. This EP is truly  a personal expression of all that I am at this point in my life. It’s not merely  an album, it’s a testament to the journey. It’s a non-fiction piece set to  music. It’s my story.”
