Introducing Tiara Thomas

Don't miss Tiara Thomas tonight on 106!

Tiara Thomas - Female MCs have been earning more opportunity and recognition of late, but few seem to possess the well-rounded talents of Tiara Thomas. Best known for her singing feature on Wale’s hit single “Bad,” Thomas also raps and plays the guitar. In June, she signed to Rico Love’s Division 1, a subsidiary of Interscope, and dropped her Dear Sallie Mae EP in October. It’s high praise, sure, but this girl’s gearing up to be in a Lauryn Hill-type lane. (Photo: Alberto Rodriguez/BET/Getty Images for BET)

Educated Sista - A year ago, Tiara Thomas graduated from Ball State University and with that came loans. With that said, she appropriately titled her mixtape Dear Sallie Mae and is working hard for her money so that she can give the loan company the boot. Get to know her a little bit better tonight on 106 & Park at 6P/5C!  (Photo: Jason Kempin/BET/Getty Images for BET)
