Rah Digga is always prepared
to rock the microphone. The phenomenal, highly acclaimed rap
artist is on a one-way trip to the top and no one can stop
Since the beginning
of her career – she was lacing brilliant rhymes on Busta Rhymes’
Flip Mode Squad projects – Rah Digga’s lyrical prowess and
distinguished style not only put her in a different category
from all other female MCs, but she also gave male MCs a run
for their money. And when her solo debut album, Dirty Harriet
was released, Rah Digga took hip-hop to a whole other level:
With her impeccable use of wordplay, in combination with off-the-meter,
body-jerking beats, Dirty Harriet had the honed-down expertise
and handiness of a veteran.
The chart topping,
scorching single “Imperial” (feat. Busta Rhymes) was a dynamic
and hypnotic song that placed Rah Digga on the elite side
of the hip-hop map. And now, as Rah Digga prepares to let
loose – she did a Tommy Hilfiger ad that was launched worldwide,
is in a made-for-MTV film and is starring in her first blockbuster
film – the rest of the world will finally see what movie executives
and others in-the-know have been buzzing about for months.
beauty, along with an eager boldness is what has made Rah
Digga the person to look out for in the new millennium. The
recent success of the Tommy Hilfiger ad campaign (both on
radio and television) has opened wonderful doors: Come October,
you will experience first-hand the flair of this rising superstar.
Starring in Joe Silver’s (producer of The Matrix) new $40
million film, 13 Ghosts, Rah Digga is on the verge of going
from indie fare to mainstream glare. But you won’t have to
wait until then to catch a glimpse of her fierceness.
On May 8th, Rah
Digga premiered in MTV’s Hip Hopera: Carmen. In updating Georges
Bizet’s tragic opera Carmen, MTV revised the repertoire favorite
that left Parisian audiences stunned and appalled when it
first hit the stage in 1875. Taken from Frenchman Prosper
Merimee’s 1845 novella, Bizet’s opera advises against the
perils of seduction, revealing the story of an openhearted
gypsy temptress who eventually gets killed by her overly possessive
boyfriend (played by Beyonce and Mekhi Phifer, respectively).
With a mixture of modern hip-hop beats, rhymes and great production,
the film (directed by Robert Townsend) will be noted as an
and clever gal from Newark, New Jersey, who attended private
school as a child, Rah Digga brings skill and diversity to
all of her projects. And she knows how to win people over
not just with her superb talent, but also with her charisma.
Prior to the release of her debut album, Rah Digga went on
tour with the multi-platinum Ruff Ryders; the exposure that
came out of this tour broadened her audience magnificently.
Yet, that was only the beginning. Since the release of Dirty
Harriet, this multi-dimensional woman has been working diligently,
performing both in the States and overseas. To say the least,
her promotional tour was a grand success.
Rah Digga will
soon become the first hip-hop artist to host and executive
produce her very own Internet show. Such buzzworthy stars
as Pink, Eve, Beyonce and Busta Rhymes have already made arrangements
to appear on the first four shows.
And even though
the big screen continues to welcome more of this refreshing
talent (she is currently being considered for two additional
roles), music will forever be her passion. You can check her
out on some new soundtracks and compilations: Carmen, Rush
Hour 2, Dr. Doolittle 2 and Violator. Asked if the movie industry
will take away from her lyrical capabilities, she will immediately
respond: “My rhyme talent has not been altered. I will fuck
you up on the microphone in a battle…I have to stay hungry
and stay working; if you slip lyrically, then it’s all over
for you. You got to always maintain the element people loved
you for in the first place.”
