Gloria Velez, born in New York and raised in Florida, the 1978 born, Velez is best known for straight-up killin’ video sets of Hip-Hop heavyweights through a lethal combination of sultry moves and raw sex appeal.
Her appearances include major roles in DMX’ “What These B*tches Want,” Ja Rule’s “Holla Holla” and as the notorious cowgirl draped-up in white in Jay Z’s “Big Pimpin'” — performances that earned her top honors as BET’s “Video Vixen” and XXL’s “Eye Candy” of the year awards, but her drive didn’t stop there.
The Latin hottie, her grandparents are Puerto Rican, made the natural transition to music videos, joining several other bootylicious girls in other rap clips.
Her modeling career skyrocketed following her video appearances, and she was featured in magazines like XXL, Ryde, Black Men, King, Smooth, and even Play Boy.
As she posed in the near-buff in these glossy spreads, Velez also established a beautifully designed website: GloriaVelez.com. With solid Internet branding underway, Velez became a recognized name.
