Voice Makes Herself Heard
Growing up the daughter of a classically trained jazz singer and an actor, it seemed inevitable for Voice to express herself through art and music. She gravitated towards her love of Hip Hop culture at an early age, studying the pioneers like Public Enemy, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, The Pharcyde, Eric B. & Rakim, MC Lyte, KRS-ONE and many more blasted beats and consciousness that crept into her headphones through the years. Inspired by them and more recent movers like Bahamadia, Big L, Aceyalone and Medusa, Voice strives to channel the passion, commentary, innovation and delivery that made them great into her own style and flow on the mic.
On this “Mediocre/LA Contradiction” EP, Voice uses her innovative style and razor sharp delivery to comment on the state of Hip Hop in 2005. On Mediocre, she takes aim at the less-than-stellar talent flooding the mainstream hip hop industry, catching wreck over the chopped up breakbeats of Canadian beat maestro Moonstarr. On L.A. Contradiction and Sign Where?, Voice collaborates with Murr (aka Mr. Murray of the Da Grassroots / LAL) to create two serious headnod inducers. On LA Contradiction she rhymes about the realities of living in Los Angeles, laying it out that its definitely NOT about the glitz and glamour. And Sign Where? posts a warning to all emcees planning on signing a major label deal to watch that fine print.
