I must say when I ventured forth on this lyrical journey I knew that there were women emcees out there that were hot. That just hadn’t been getting their due. It happens to women folk all the time, In all walks of life, in all kinds of business. And let us not forget in our personal lives how many times women have held down a family, a crisis, we even hold down movements and don’t get no motherfucking credit. But let me calm down. Because what I really want to say is I am delighted at finding the plethora of talent available to highlight. You gotta listen to ALOT, and I mean ALOT of wack shit before you find that jewel (and that’s with any music scene) but when you find it. You praise baby jesus and press rewind.
The emcee making me press rewind today is RA the MC. She does not hesitate, she is a MC aka mic controller in the true sense of the word. Repping for the DMV area (that’s D.C., Virginia and Maryland for the uninitiated) She has been doing the thing since a teen. As they say practice makes perfect. The evolution of an artist is a beautiful thing to behold, the end result this time is this. The second video in support of her current effort Heart of A Champion. A fixture on the underground scene for a while with several mixtapes under her belt and a 2009 VMA Breakout Artist Nomination this emcee has only just begun her rocket to the finish line despite having a mix tape called Victory Lap. What can I say about her ability as an emcee that hasn’t been said already? Perhaps its best to just let her speak for herself. Get the motherfucking tape. You can thank me later.
