Rah Digga – “The N*gga In Me” (Fat Trel, Tyler The Creator Diss)

By | 37 Comments

When I saw “Rah Digga disses Fat Trel and Tyler the Creator” in the subject heading of an email, I fully expected something about least likely hypothetical songs, or some sort of late April Fool’s Day joke to be in the body.

Indexing The Hip-Hop Library: When Female Rap Albums Get Shelved

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/barbie-recall-the-10-most-absurd-lyrics-from-nicki-minajs-pink-friday"> Nicki Minaj may be enjoying platinum spoils for her debut Pink Friday at the moment, but she should kiss her lucky vocoder that she should never fall victim to a situation where her countless hours of grind and grit fail to see the light of day. It's not always sunny in the Hip-Hop industry, but it seems like the ladies tend to largely get the void stamp when it comes to putting out their LPs. It doesn't happen often but sometimes, timing, buzz and marketing all manage to collide on the playing field, leaving the women without their equal rights. Here's a look at a handful of female rap albums that were buried alive underneath the history books. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/foxy-brown-arrested-for-violating-order-of-protection"> <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/foxy-brown">Foxy Brown</a> Item: Ill Na Na 2: The Fever; Black Roses ISBN: 2002-IM-2007-DEF-730-BK Overdue Fee: $55.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/rah-digga-classic-video"> As of late, it seems the world has grown blissfully ignorant to female spitters without neon hair. Almost three months after releasing Classic, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/rah-digga">Rah Digga</a> takes a crack at Kanye West’s “The Joy,” dropping her signature loud-mouthed rhymes with Curtis Mayfield crooning the chorus.

“Who Gonna Check Me Boo?” – Review Of Rah Digga’s Classic

By | 7 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/download-rah-digga-this-aint-no-little-kid-rap"> Re-entering the work force after an extended time away is never easy, especially when you’re a female rapper. Even as the digital age has opened the floodgates for aspiring artists, the number of females getting shine has continued to dwindle. Undeterred by the current state of affairs, Rah Digga emerges from the uncertainty and teams up with producer extraordinaire Nottz for her sophomore effort, the boldly-named Classic. There’s no denying the chemistry between Rah Digga & Nottz as her husky vocals sound right at home on top of his layered, sample-driven backdrops. Showing she’s still fully confident in her abilities on “Who’s Gonna Check Me Boo,” Ms. Thugman sends a salvo to any remaining competitors that she’s back. The jabs continue on the titular “Classic” as she spits “Hoodrat from Nazareth/Vote for the Maverick/Top Gun, not one of them see D-I/G-G-A, all of them CGI/cropped & photoshopped, they not in my caliber/Who would want to challenge her/They’re outta my league…” over Nottz’ smoldering organs. Still as gully as ever, there’s no question Digga still has fire in both her pen and lungs. While Classic is comprised of the cocky, battle rhymes that a Hip-Hop lifer would look for on the surface, there is still one thing missing: content. Once all of the punch lines & similes are sifted into their proper places, the listener knows as much about Rah Digga as they did before they pressed play. One of the biggest hurdles that rappers have to clear when dropping material on a yearly, monthly, weekly or even daily basis is to come up with fresh material. Coming off of a ten-year hiatus, Digga had plenty of experiences and time to craft rhymes that tell listeners more than tooting and blowing the horn she was born with. It’s one of the reasons why “Viral” blankets its fellow selections as she runs down random quips about her from various spots around the net. Not because she’s hurling out a ton of clever lines in succession, but because her creativity is focused on more than trying to do so. And as good as Nottz & Digga sound together, they seem to get a little too comfortable with each other. The album never raises any higher or lower than it’s opening, making the standout moments few and far between. One would assume that <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/09/download-rah-digga-straight-spittin-iv">“Straight Spittin IV”</a> would serve as a lyrical showcase for Digga, but there's nary a differentiation from say “You Got It” or <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/download-rah-digga-this-aint-no-little-kid-rap">“This Ain't No Little Kid Rap.”</a> So while it was a noble act on her part to handle all the mic duties, a few choice features could have added a much needed spark to the album.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/rah-digga-this-aint-no-lil-kid-rap-video"> How should Rah Digga garner a little attention for her upcoming album and the associated lead single? By hooking up with fellow Jerz representer Reggie Noble, that's how. Nottz keeps <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/download-rah-digga-this-aint-no-little-kid-rap">the original</a> largely intact, giving "the king and queen of Brick City" a nice soundscape to prove that like fine wine rappers can get better with time.
