Born in Jamaica and raised in the St. Catherine Parish, Hoodcelebrityy, affectionately known to her family as Tina Pinnock, came to the United States as a pre-teen and embraced the culture and sounds of Hip-Hop while keeping close to her birth-given roots. Things began jumping off for HoodCelebrityy in 2015 with the release of her single and video “Wine Pon It” which went viral.
Immediately following that post, Pinnock recorded her first single for a song called “Wine Pon It,” offering the world the official debut of her style, which blended the raw reggae of her Jamaican roots with the unrepentant East Coast rap swagger of her adopted home in the Bronx. She followed with further singles such as the trap-meets-dancehall minimalism of “The Takeover,” and took her songs live, opening for reggae-pop legend Shaggy among others. Her debut mixtape, Can’t Believe It’s Just a Girl, materialized in the spring of 2017 and she followed it quickly with her second mixtape, Trap vs. Reggae that summer. A more pop-minded single, “Walking Trophy,” dropped in November of 2017, softened a bit from the grittier tones of earlier material. It was included on the EP Inna Real Life, which arrived in 2018.
With over 292 million streams on DSP’s, Hoodcelebrityy proves she is an international force to be reckoned with. In 2020 Hoodcelebrityy released “Bum Pon It” which became her 2nd biggest record and a trending dance phenomenon on Youtube. In 2021 Hoodcelebrityy released “So Pretty”, which has become a viral Tik Tok sensation and highlights her trajectory to becoming a pop sensation.
Counting dancehall artist Vybz Kartel and rapper 50 Cent as her biggest influences, the ability to “deejay” or rap in dancehall vernacular and flip into traditional rhyming has become HoodCelebrityy’s calling card. Hoodcelebrityy has managed to inject the influence of trap music in her dancehall deejaying solidifying features with Cardi B, Tory Lanez, Fabolous, Trey Songz, Kranium, Lil Kim and French Montana to say a few, putting her above peers that have tried to meld the genres in times past.
Staying true to herself Hoodcelebrityy continues to manifest happiness, fun and upliftment through her songs with recent releases like Champion, So Pretty and Run Di Road. Hoodcelebrityy has highlighted the importance to shine a light on the positivity in life and will continue to motivate and infuse fun in her music.
