About The Artist

Alaya High was born in Houston, Texas, on January 28, 2007. She got her start in music when her parents posted videos of her rapping covers to hip-hop songs on YouTube, and rapping covers of different Christian rap songs for the youth ministry at her local church her family attended. She subsequently began writing her own rap and hip hop songs that she posted on YouTube and Instagram.

In 2018, she was given a recording contract with Empire Distribution under the record label, Fresh Rebel Musik, and recorded her debut album, Tha Cheat Code, and also recorded a single to accompany the album, Go, Lay Lay, Go, with Empire. After rising to fame with Tha Cheat Code and Go, Lay Lay, Go, she was invited to perform at the 93rd Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2019, and went on to perform at Nickelodeon's All-Star Nickmas Holiday Spectacular in 2020. She also performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show while promoting her new album.

High became one of the youngest female rappers to be given a record deal at 11 years old, and went on to record other children's and teen-themed rap and hip hop albums with Empire such as Tha Cheat Code Reloaded (2019), All Tha Way Lit Up (2019), and Recess Is Over (2020). She also released several singles, both by herself and as collaborations with other rappers such as Mama (2019), Long Hair (2020), Show and Tell (2020), Jingle Rock Baby (a Christmas single, 2020), A World by Us (2021), and I'm That! (in collaboration with fellow Nickelodeon child actor and rapper, Young Dylan, in 2021). She also performed at the 2022 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

High made her acting debut in 2019 when she did minor voice roles for the movie, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, and collaborated on the theme song for the film's soundtrack, Catchy Song, with rapper T-Pain and producer Dillon Francis. In 2020, she signed a deal with Nickelodeon to develop original multi-platform programming, music initiatives, and build a consumer product business catering to children and teens, and highlighting young actors and creative artists. As a part of this deal, High was given her own television series on Nickelodeon, That Girl Lay Lay, where she currently plays as an artificially intelligent avatar on a phone app that comes to life as a human teen girl, when the owner of the phone, Sadie, wishes she had a friend who could help her stand out and be more outgoing in her high school career and social life. The show premiered on Nickelodeon on September 23, 2021, and was renewed for a second season on January 28, 2022. It premiered July 14, 2022. High has also guest starred in other Nickelodeon series such as Side Hustle, Tyler Perry's Young Dylan, and Danger Force.
