Mindy DuPonte sees the big picture. No matter what aspect of her life is in question, she's prepped with an answer, a plan, or an approach, whether she's talking about songwriting, one-year plans, or mixtape rollouts. It's likely the best way to operate at the moment, as DuPonte's hip-hop career is looking to jump off. Rapping under the moniker Miny, she's dropped a cypher on the roof of HipHop DX's headquarters, has just released her mixtape Demon, and is about to leave to play the iTunes Music Festival in London this month.

You also may know DuPonte from her days in Hellen, the death metal act that featured her on drums and vocals. Formed when she was just 13, with her older sister Desiree on guitar, Hellen made waves both near and far.
