EUD is a Haitian rapper and actress. She was born on April 25th and raised in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. From a very young age, she showed interest in music more notably the 80’s and 90’s songs, however, it was the Haitian Rap movement that really incited her interest and pushed her towards her music careers. Her incredible journey started with several poems, which were published on the radios and at several music festivals.
She was only 16 years old when her musical career started. She sang on a carnival song with the group Tribu de Job in 2000. Despite her mother’s opposition, she clangs to her dream (prose) and worked hard to make a name in the chauvinistic environment of the music world. Against her father’s advice, EUD, still a minor at the time, made her first appearances on stage with her friends from the Tribu de Job, then with ASRAP on “Ka Madan Brino” in 2001, and again in 2003 with LIVE JAM for the hit “Fanm Se Kajou.”

She admits to being influenced by the captivating look and charisma of international superstars such as Lauryn Hill and Manzè of Boukman Eksperyans. That influence can be noticed in her two videos “Hey!” in 2006 and “Y ap Pale” in 2011, where she expresses herself as a sophisticated and uninhibited woman in her blue jeans and T-shirt.
