Café Mocha’s YoYo is a Grammy-nominated rapper and actress best known for classic rap hits like “Can’t Play With My Yo-Yo,” “The Bonnie & Clyde Theme” with Cube and “I Wanna Be Down” with Brandy, Queen Latifah and MC Lyte. With more than 25 years in the music business, Yo-Yo’s professional journey was recently featured on TV One’s marquee franchise, “Unsung.” The Compton, Calif.-native—who has consistently toured throughout the years—performed earlier this year at the Trump Awards in Atlanta as part of a tribute to hip-hop trailblazers Salt-N-Pepa. A feminist and community crusader, YoYo is working to empower young people with her youth program, YoYo’s School of Hip-Hop. Yo-Yo’s program operates in both Los Angeles, Calif. and Highland Park, Mich., where her husband, DeAndre Windom, is the mayor. The mission is to help educate youths within the community about dance, music, and learning how to compose and perform powerful messages in rap music.
