Local artists, get your pens and notepads ready! Famous rapper Mia X will be dropping gems at Sync Up 2021: NOLA Next and you don't want to miss it.

Moderated by Christie Jourdain of the Original Pinettes Brass Band, this live interview will touch base on Mia X's evolution in the music industry. Now who wouldn't want to know how the first female rapper from the beloved No Limit Records got her start?

As we all know, New Orleans is the ultimate hotspot for music and has been a great influence to artists around the world. Thankfully, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation has provided a platform for artists to gather and gain insight from those in the music industry.

The proceeds that are accumulated from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, as well as other raised funds, are used for an extensive number of programs. These year-round programs include education, economic development, and cultural enrichment.
