i’ll be frank. i like a very limited amount of female emcees. not because i’m such a misogynistic/sexist asshole or anything of that nature, but simply because it’s nearly impossible for me to relate to many songs by female rap artists. these last few years in hip-hop have brought us names like jean grae and more recetly, dessa, both of whom houston rapper uzoy (pronounced like ‘uzi’) can be compared to. that being said, her tape isn’t something the latter act could put out, as we saw with her recent flop of an LP (in my opinion.) and jean grae is in a league of her own, established for all the right reasons.
the [def]inition puts the houston emcee in the spotlight, as the LP/mixtape is a good 12 months in the making. having been caught up with school and the normal events of life, this project is now ready to shine amongst the best of the hip-hop blogosphere. speaking of which, i’m sure it didn’t hurt that the dudes at 2dopeboyz are giving her a huge co-sign and releasing the project.
so give it up for some real down-home hip-hop without any gimmicks, catch her music video for “til infinity”, and download the [def]inition.
