Nini X

Nini X (born Rajni Faulks on July 21, 1970 in Steubenville, Ohio) was a female rapper from the 90s. She later moved to Los Angeles in Compton.

In 1993, she was introduced to Ronnie Ron by Tweedy Bird Loc. At the time, Nini was struggling, so Ronnie Ron helped her out.

At first, he did not want her to be on the song "Bangin' on Wax," but Nini insisted and gave herself the name "Bloody Mary."

Nini made her debut on the single "Piru Love" along with rappers Lil' Stretch, Redrum 781 and "CK." She also appeared in the music video for the song.
In 1994, Nini released her debut album "She's Dangerous" under the name "Nini X." The album failed to make the Billboard album charts at all.

She later left Dangerous Records and stopped working with Ronnie Ron due to financial issues.

Due to the joint ventures with Quality Records and money that was being handled by Warlock Records, Nini X ended in bad terms with Ronnie Ron.

She was featured on most of the first "Bangin' On Wax" album.
In 2002, Nini released her sophomore album "Day Of Resurrection" under the name "Bloody Mary." It's unknown how or if the album ever made the charts at all.

She was even signed to Death Row Records. Nini was featured on Tweedy Bird Loc's work and also appeared on Assassin's "Hitworks Vol. 1" album under the name "Nina Ross/Bloody Mary."

On November 19, 2006, Nini was riding her motorbike in Compton & she unintentionally became involved in another person's high-speed chase.

Nini's bike was hit by an Escalade trying to outrun the police. She was put on life support and sadly succumbed to her injuries on November 21, 2006. She was only 36 years old.
