Somaya Reece is a tall, sexy Latina. She has a fierce determination to launch her rap career and become a household name in the music industry.

Somaya Reece is currently voted "20 figuras Latinas en boca de todos" (20 most talked about Latin figures) and "Iconos de nuestra cultura" (Icons of todays culture) on MSN NBC Latino! She is a voluptuous vixen with 40-28-46 dimensions. It's easy to see why this Salvadorian beauty from South Central was recently named the Hottest Latina in Music by Maxim en Español. In spite of her harsh upbringing, she has accomplished an impressive and extensive resume. Born and raised in South Central, Los Angeles, she grew up in a garage to an immigrant Latino family cleaning houses as a maid with her mother. Refusing to be another statistic living "La Vida Loca" in gangs, jail, experiencing several wounded and deadly gang related death scares, she decided to change her life and began her journey to great accomplishments.

Somaya has proven to be more than a triple threat in mainstream media. A professionally trained actress under the guidance of Aaron Speiser who has been responsible for the impeccable acting techniques behind many of today's A-list actors—Somaya's diverse talent has successfully crossed over from acting, to being the most successful independent artist of our time. Her DIY technique, a unique digital approach of viral marketing has fans and media across the world talking. She has single handedly crossed over into the UK radio stations, building a massive fan base. Her music has been received in the music industry with open arms and was even called the Latina Missy Elliot with the late Selena's humble approach.

Due to Somaya's life experiences she began to make it her mission to share her story in order to prevent others from going down the wrong path. To inspire and motive others, she is actively involved in the community both as a role model and public speaker. She volunteers her time to traveling across the US on a consistent basis delivering the message of hope, and motivation by sharing her personal life story of struggle. Her first visit to the military made her a popular public speaker and was invited back quarterly to speak to the families of the military USMC and US Army. Her works began making noise in her local community and as a result she was personally invited by well respected activist Tavis Smiley to be a celebrity speaker alongside the mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa. The project "The Road to Health Tour" involved speaking to children ages 5-13 of the Los Angeles and Ventura county public LAUSD schools. Somaya was also asked by radio station 93.5 KDAY to be a part of their "Feed the Homies Project," visiting and serving food to shelters of recovering drug addicts on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

As a musician, Somaya "Boss" Reece, aka Bossy Montana, beginning at the early age of nine, was inspired by the late Celia Cruz to play the violin earning her honors as the lead in her public school choir, and now turning down three record deals.
