One of music’s most respected and premier “rapper’s rapper” – regardless of gender, former First lady of Busta Rhymes’ Flipmode Squad Rah Digga has returned with another classic album and accomplished something that is unheard of in Hip-Hop. “No female rapper has ever released a sophomore album 10 years later and I hoped to capture all audiences once more and remind everyone why they fell in love with Dirty Harriet in the first place!” states Digga. In an industry ruled by flash in the pan MC’s and a what is “hot” at the moment mentality, Rah Digga is not worried about her absence from the game or her place in it, “I’m not a gimmick; I wasn’t created by a label. I am a natural born talent that broke into the industry based on my ability to rhyme and that’s what people will always expect from me.” With a recent album produced by Nottz, one of the most famed beatsmiths in Hip-Hop, Digga had no problems meeting the expectations of any hardcore Hip-Hop fan. Accolades from music icons such as Amy Winehouse have been ringing aloud thoughout Rah’s entire career. With her creative and progressive outlook, she has returned to prominence as a trendsetter in music. “Classic” was released September, 14th 2010. Keeping an eye on the future and her continual work in directing, editing, business, acting, motherhood, motivational speaking and activism, Rah Digga’s work is never done. A true renaissance women is an understatement. “With all the time that has passed what I’ve learned from all the outpouring of support is that people just want their good ole “Dirty Harriet” back.
