Zaire Miylaun is Lady London’s true name. She was born in New York on June 25, 1995.
She grew up in East Orange, New Jersey, and The Bronx, New York, with a Jamaican mother and a Trinidadian father. Hip-hop surrounded her as a child.
Chino XL, Lady London’s uncle, even held her in his arms when recording I Told You So. JAY-Z, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Lauryn Hill, Slick Rick, Whitney Houston, and Drake were among her early influences.
She attended Howard University to study Sports Medicine and Chemistry after graduating with honors from an all-girls Catholic high school.
She also competed in poetry contests and performed at sold-out performances across Washington, D.C., during this time.
