It’s true that true female hip-hop rap MC’s are few and far in-between, but there are some great one’s out here and it is hard to understand why they do not get the respect and ‘shine’ that they deserve.

I have seen and heard a few female rap artists who I have thoroughly been amazed by. Strong women who do not fit the hip-hop definition of ‘hoochie’, but these are strong beautiful women with the ‘skillz’ to match most of the signed major MC’s of today.

Such is the case of a Boston, Massachusetts based female rap artist named Brix; (pronounced ‘Bricks’).

One listen and you can tell she is not your ‘cutzie’ gurl rapper but here is a straight forward ‘real’ rap artist who shares her life experiences and philosophy on wax. She is a voice for the real everyday women on tha block. She brings her flow in an amazing way thru her craft that most people can relate to. When she spits, she has your full attention and you feel compelled to hear her out. Her skillz are captivating and insightful.

Brix knows that most of us can not relate to the BET type video, where the ‘all is good out here’ and the ‘bling’ of the good life builds a ‘fantasy’ world for the youth who swallow that type of propaganda. Brix says “Daises don’t grow in the hood”. And in that attitude her flow encompasses everything from club banging tracks to tracks that embellish the ‘streetz’ thru the reality of social and economic struggle and the hustle of everyday reality of life in the block.

Because Brix is ‘new’ to me does not mean she is new to the game. I was just lucky enough to run across her and to hear her talent and to be blessed to respect and appreciate her talent.
