Vita (from the Latin word for "life") can refer to a brief biography, often that of a saint. One can expect a vita to unfold its story gradually according to a set pattern.

Vita (real name Lavita) is also a rapper on Irv Gotti's Murda Inc record label. She's known for her her featured appearances on N.E.R.D's (The Neptunes) 2001 debut single, "Lapdance," Ja Rule's singles "Down 4 U" and "Put It On Me," and the Murda Inc remix of Faith Evans' "Good Life," which appeared on the soundtrack to The Fast and the Furious. Vita also contributed a song to that soundtrack, a hip hop version of Madonna's controversial hit, "Justify My Love," which featured Ashanti and was set to be Vita's debut single, until it was poorly received.

Vita can also be seen in a cameo in Ashanti's debut solo video, "Foolish".
