Marilyn Camacho, also known as Ruby Yo!, is a Puerto Rican emcee, singer, songwriter, and actress raised on Chicago’s south side’s of Pilsen and Gage Park. She is the middle child of 8 children, and started singing, writing poetry, and acting out scenes she wrote by the age of 10. While attending a performing arts high school as a drama/music major, she listened heavily to hip-hop, wrote verses, spit them to her friends and discovered she had a knack for rapping. She went on to continue her theatrical studies in college but dropped out and decided to focus on music full-time. Since, she’s established herself as a known actress/director with her company, UrbanTheater Company (UTC), while still working on music, and performing. She played at SXSW this past year and just released her first official musical offering, The Rubyx Cube EP. The concept album shows her diversity as an artist, as she sings and rhymes over a cool mix of 80′s influenced hip-hop, pop rock, R&B, and spanish rock.
