Born Busisiwe Soba from Randfontein (west side of Johannesburg), 3Pleb is a rapper and all round hip hop artist. With a background of music from a young age and support from the talent that surrounded her made it hard for her to ignore her calling of being behind the mic.

At the age of 16 she was featured on a train track produced by JNZ Beats where she had to prove herself worthy in a male dominated industry as she was the only female rapping on the song, which also worked in her advantage as she managed to work with some of the best upcoming artists while working on her craft.
