Mia Young, known by her stage name Mia X, was the first female rapper to sign to No Limit Records. From 1995 to 1998, Mia X released three albums for No Limit: Good Girl Gone Bad, Unlady Like and Mama Drama. Unlady Like was certified gold by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000 copies.

Although born in New Orleans, Mia began her rapping career in Queens, New York as part of New York Incorporated, which disbanded after only four years. She then returned to New Orleans and met with Master P, an aspiring rapper and producer who signed her to his record label, No Limit.

Mia X reappeared on the rap scene in late 2006 with a track called "Verbal Assault" Produced by Donald XL Robertson on the Southern Smoke mixtape series. The song included a refrain with the words "Guess Who's Back?", leading to some speculation that she might be working on a new album.

Mia X is currently at work as the executive producer on the release of her son Sean's (aka Fly Guy Sean) debut album The future is in my hands... Also she is working very closely with her nephew Skrill-Dilly and his release on Mike Dean's List production label set to be released in 2009 via an unsaid major distribution deal.

In 2008, she appeared on C-Murder's album, Screamin' 4 Vengeance, on tracks entitled "Mihita" and "Posted on tha Block (Remix)".

Mia recently released an interview about her hiatus and comeback, revealing that she is working on a mixtape and a new album called "Betty Rocka Locksmith" due out in 2010[1]. She has shot a video for a song from her upcoming mixtape called "I Get The Paper"[2] and is releasing a song called "Hush" on December 8 thru her own label Musiclife Recordings/XL Productionz[3] (digitally on iTunes, Amazon MP3, etc...)
