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!!

ATL rapper Rasheeda has been making moves for years. She started as a teenager in a rap trio called the Da Kaperz before going solo in 2001 with the release of  “Do It” featuring Pastor Troy.  I remember seeing the video and thinking she looked like Aalyiah as a rapper.  She stayed on her grind doing a feature with Cherish called “A Chick Like Me” and got a regional hit with “Bubble Gum”.

Now Rasheeda is back with some fire for these new school rap chicks with the mixtape Boss Bitch Music.  Her newest singles are covers of the two major hits “Say Something” featuring Nivea (Who KILLS Drake with her hook!) and “O Let’s Do It” where she’s goes on the other chicks in the game right now.  “I’m that new IT girl, minus the fake butt” I just have a feeling she might be the next big thing.  Her swag is SO serious! I’m posting those videos plus the old school “Do It” joint. Follow Rasheeda on Twitter @rasheedagapeach.

Umm I wish I could say that but I can’t because I owe so much money in school loans I need to take a sip of some wine just thinking about it. I gotta ease my mind when I start to think about all the money I owe.

I had this mixtape sitting around for like a couple of weeks now, but I actually had a chance to listen to the mixtape today, while I was on my long bus ride home. I really did enjoy the music. I’m glad to see a lot of women from the area doing their thing when it comes to making music. She reps Bmore and you can check her out on myspace at http://www.myspace.com/millyjuly.
