Ebony Boone better known Vainsmith is a hip hop artist, photographer & writer based in Virginia. She was born on May 8th, 1987 in VA but was raised Wilmington, Delaware most of her life. Growing up in the city showed Ebony that you can become a product of your environment or have the will & drive to push forward to make any of your wildest dreams come true. Throughout her life she has experimented with the various forms of art including short stories, poetry, photography, blogging & sketching with music being her first true love.
As a youth growing up in a time where drugs, prostitution & violence were the focal points of everyday life, Ebony made the decision to take a different route towards her life as she saw it.

Her influences include some of the most amazing people ranging from Michael Jordan, Oprah, Gordon Parks, Bill Cosby, Michael Jackson, Spike Lee, Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Jay-Z & Will Smith just to name a few.
