The plight of the female emcee has been well documented by hip hop scribes for the past decade. Rather than seeing femcees whose name is made from their lyrical ability, many gain notoriety from their looks and open display of sexual energy. But that’s where Rah Digga comes in. Ten years removed from her lauded debut album Dirty Harriet, the husky voiced woman comes to slam stereotypes face first with the aptly titled Classic.

Produced entirely by Nottz, Digga’s Classic is a powerful war cry by the former Flipmode Squad emcee to all of the industry that declares female emcees to be extinct. She’s pure dope lyrics and minus fluff throughout the petite ten track offering.

“This Ain’t No Lil Kid Rap” finds Digga and her rich voice stomping over the rumbling highs and lows and sparse drums. Digga didn’t come to play games and keeps the momentum going on the funky “Feel Good” where Nottz vocal samples and rumbling bassline allow Digga to cut loose with some vicious braggadocio.

The production of Nottz is definitely a shot in the arm for Rah Digga’s second album. Nottz go-go drums behind the electric guitar plucks of “Straight Spittin IV” is the perfect soundscape for the Outsidaz alum to flex some lyrical muscles. Everything Nottz chips in is a compliment to Digga’s rough and rugged style. It’s easy to see that this is a match made in heaven.

After a decade of having to wait, Rah Digga’s Classic proves that the femcee hasn’t lost anything since her debut album. As a matter of fact, can we get another album sooner than later?

    Hmmm…I have heard a few tracks and have to say it’s ill…This day in age, female emcees whom have skills and aren’t relying on the whole “sex appeal” because they’re trying to go the other route are not given enough props…And this is where the game is fucked up folks. Sure Lil’ Kim was ill, but there were ghostwriters, and a lot of sex appeal by the upper handers. And Foxy had potential, Lauryn Hill took a snooze pill, MC Lyte….accckkk! Anyway, this album is well appreciated. Femcees are there, and this is one of them…I would have given it at LEAST a four. I mean, c’mon, it’s harder than a lotta shit out there…From the joints I heard…
