This 16 Year-Old Canadian Girl Created A Beat For Jay-Z’s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’


I don’t know what you were doing when you were 16, but I’m sure it was awesome, and I’m sure it was fun. I did some pretty cool ish back then too… but… um… not this cool, lol. Canadian teen Ebony Oshunrinde AKA WondaGurl was just, like, screwing around making music one day (because she taught herself how to do that by watching YouTube tutorials… when she was 9 years old) and she made a beat that she thought was kinda cool so she sent it to young rapper/producer Travis Scott. One thing led to another– and by “another” I mean “Jay-Z” and voila! She’s now credited as a producer on Jay-Z’s latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. At age 16. Because she rules. And, probably, because she started taking this whole music thing seriously when she was 9. Click inside to learn more!

Here’s WondaGurl explaining her general awesomeness to MTV:


I don’t even know this girl and I am SO psyched for her! What an awesome time, and what an amazing story. Just goes to show, reggae music makes life happy– this whole thing started because she was looking for a Sizzla beat, lol. And Crown is a crowd favorite on the album, so she’s definitely getting ready to blow up!

You can read more about WondaGurl HERE. She’s got a great story and even though she’s young, she worked her way up to get to Jigga. Here’s hoping we get to hear more of her stuff soon.
