From a small city deep in the dirty south to the top of the hip-hop video world Lashay Iconic has taken the industry by storm. Within a two year span she has worked with some of the heavy hitters in hip-hop and now is one of the most sought after models in the industry.
When one thinks of a hip-hop video vixen one tends to picture a beautiful, well shaped young lady that probably compromised her core values to make it were she is in the industry. Yes, sex sells, and yes, sexual exploitation takes place in the entertainment industry that’s no secret; however, there are always exceptions to the rule.

Many seasoned people in the game normally tend to take advantage of the new jacks that get blinded by the game seeking fame and fortune. The lights, cameras and the entertainment fluff can open people up to become victims if they are not properly mentally equipped. Therefore, Lashay and her team had to quickly cypher out the jobs that were legitimate and the jobs that had all of the elements of being legitimate, but were far from it.
Within a short period of time Lashay has made a strong impact in the industry and the word spread quickly. She has worked with Big Boi, Killer Mike, Tony Yayo, and T.I. to name a few. The body of work that Lashay and her team Indulgent entertainment have put together in such a short period of time would normally take the average model or team several years to accomplish.

he Brave and the fearless, The warriors and the soldiers. The lethal and the deadly. All in a place filled to capacity with hate. A dark abysmal empty, cold wicked place. Where darkness looms more than light illuminates. The Penitentiary. In some communities there are a group of people who cherish prison as if it were a synagogue or mosque. They look to the Correctional Institution as validation of manhood.
