A talented Richmond rapper is making a name for herself at just 8 years old.

Mariah Sanaa is featured in a newly published YouTube video impressively rapping over Rich Homie Quan’s popular track, “Walk Thru.”

The video was filmed in Oakland. The company that produced it, Oakland-based Pure Visuals, described Sanaa as a “very talented young artist” who, despite her talents, “puts school first.”

“She is very mature and a hardworking person,” the company told the Richmond Standard. “She loves music and loves making new songs and performing in front of people.”

She is also reportedly an ambassador for the I Love All My Fans Kids clothing line, according to Pure Visuals, which produces music videos and services including photoshoots, wardrobe, hairstyling, songwriting and recording.
