Biography

Mercedes is the name of a female R&B singer and more than one rock band.

1. One of the few female artists in Master P’s No Limit stable, RB/hip-hop singer Mercedes was born Raequel Miller in Louisiana in 1978 and grew up in Detroit, attending the city’s High School for the Fine and Performing Arts and participating in the spiritually oriented Brazeal Dennard Youth Chorale. While studying music at Xavier University in New Orleans, she came to the attention of Master P at a talent show, and was signed immediately and christened Mercedes. After debuting on the I’m ‘Bout It soundtrack, Mercedes issued her debut album, Rear End, in 1999. She retired from the music business shortly thereafter to attend law school to become a attorney.

The album, like most of No Limit’s relases, featured other No Limit performing artists such as Mystikal, Mac, Mia X, Silkk the Shocker and Master P. The album cover for Rear End shows Mercedes bent over the hood of a Mercedes wearing a pear of revealing shorts and high heels.

In a promotional interview for her debut album Rear End, Mercedes claimed that it took just two weeks to cut the record — which is interesting, since the album was being advertised in No Limit discs well over a year before its release.
