BlackRadioIsBack.com Flashback Video of the Day: Nonchalant
Hip-Hop MCs who are blantantly from the Washington, DC Metro area just seem to get a bad hand in things on the music business end and/or end up having skirt on the independent circut for abnormally long periods of time no matter how quality the music is (Asheru, Wale, etc.).
When this joint dropped back in the day, folks from the "ur-ee-a" (area for non-southern accented folks) were kind of amped to not just see a female MC, but a sis on top of that (this period of the 1990s was starting the decline of female MCs who were on that garbage in the mainstream Hip-Hop scene) doing her thing.
The bass on this joint will still rattle the whip kind of hard, the beat was cool and the song had a message on top of things that didn't get to preachy or pedantic - all good, I say.
As far as I know, Nonchalant didn't do another album after her first one, the Until the Day LP, but hip me to it if y'all know something.
How SCARY this joint was made during my last year of high school (class of 1996, Oxon Hill H.S., yeah)...
