RAtheMC– Heart of a Champion

By Urbansocialight

Fresh off the plane from the Motherland, I made my way to the listening party for our girl RAtheMC and her new LP “Heart of a Champion”.  I have to say I’m in love with the new project.  RA is now down with the Studio 43 movement and it seems like a match made in hip-hop heaven.  Her slick rhymes over AB the PRO beats are magic!  Not only does she give us the hard hitting verses of hip-hop veteran but she sings like a hummingbird in spring.   Before the end of the night I knew all the words to chorus of “One Shot”.   It’s sort of addictive.

Heart of a Champion” just dropped Tuesday on DJBooth.net and has already garnished features on Washingtonpost.com and ABC 7’s website. Not to mention RA had the honor of performing with the legend Nas on Sunday night.  The CNB fam has been following her for a long time and is really proud to see her come so far!

Be sure to download the mixtape and support RAtheMC!  Follow her on Twitter @RAtheMC and #HeartofaChampion!!

Wassup crabzinabarrel.com world it’s your girl ReneeWoods and I went to the He Said She Said event last night and yall can tell everyone that ReneeWoods said the show was dope!!!!!!!!!!!Now I’m going to be real with yall and state I was almost going to leave when I arrived at Palace Five at 9:00 pm and there wasn’t anyone performing. But I stood outside, and waited, and waited, contemplated going to Busboys and Poets for a bit, then waited some more. Then finally I went inside and around 10:00 PM RAtheMC             (http://www.myspace.com/simplyra) started performing with  Mz Mimz    ( http://www.myspace.com/mzmimz) and honestly it was worth the da*n wait. Sidenote: Peep the video below of her perfoming. After RAtheMC’s performance was over it wasn’t too long before Phil Ade ( http://www.myspace.com/philade301) was on stage rocking the crowd with songs from his mixtape ” Starting on JV.” Once again it was worth the da*n wait and the best part about this EXCELLENT  show is it was FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.  Now I have been to shows that costed me my hard earned money  that I didn’t have that weren’t as good as this one.  Peep the pics and video footage that El Solo Dolo got for your viewing pleasure.
