The Go! Team's Ninja records solo material
The Go! Team’s rapper and frontwoman Ninja has recorded solo material and has explained to NME.COM that she has plans for a career of her own.

The star revealed that she has been recording with super-producer Richard X, who has previously worked with Kelis, between her band duties.

“If I write a song, I write it for me,” she explained, when asked if she contributed songwriting to The Go! Team. “I’m a rapper – I’ve got exercise books stuffed with lyrics instead of homework going back to when I was 11.

"I’ve been recording stuff with Richard X, and I’d love to be a solo artist in the future.”

You can catch Ninja and The Go! Team live on the forthcoming NME Freshers Tour 07 supported by Lowlife.
