aahh spotlight on: Empress MC

More often than not, when it comes to the realm of hip-hop, women tend to be grouped in a class separately to their male counterparts, almost like they could never reach the level of talent that male MC’s do. The phrase “she’s good for a female rapper” is all too familiar and one that, in reality, shouldn’t even exist, especially when real talent knows no boundaries.

Preparing for her ascendance into the hip hop stratosphere for many years now, Sydney’s Empress MC is ready to show the world what she’s about, not only as a rapper, but as a writer and performer as well. Beginning her grind as a young girl writing poetry to pass the time, Empress MC has honed her craft over her teen years, taking every opportunity to display her skills as a wordsmith.

Like a modern day Queen Nefertiti, and at just 24, she is ready to rule the music world with an iron mic. Garnering the respect of everyone that is witness to her expert rhyming and clever versatile songwriting, Empress MC is setting aside stereotypes and establishing herself as an artist to be reckoned with. Turn Me Up Some is the first single from the up coming mixtape Dilla Diaries.
