Rah-HitTheFloor

Newark NJ hip hop veteran and ex Flipmode member Rah Digga has been on the steady grind for the past year, releasing a series of tracks to the internet while working on a number of new official releases which will see the light of day over the next few months

Currently releasing singles from her Hood House EP, a side project mashing classic house music beats with some fierce rhymes, a new official mixtape is due to make an appearance by the turn of the year followed in the early part of 2014 by a new album, the first since “Classic” in 2010.

She took time out from an extremely busy schedule recently to speak with the UK’s online multi genre magazine Hit The Floor. She discusses with urban editor Josh Pratt the apparent new direction taken in the Hood House EP, future release and tour plans, her thoughts on Tony Touch’s new 50 MC release, Kendrick’s verse on Control, contemporary female artists and much more

SoulOnFire-ClashMag

The new Rapture & Verse hip hop column written by Matt Oliver is live today in the UK’s Clash Magazine

In what’s been a huge summer of record releases & tours, the column is a summary of the month’s hottest news, mixtapes, videos and albums from around the world. This month includes coverage of Nas, Drake, Riff Raff, Eminem, Earl Sweatshirt, Breaking the Illusion, Meek Mill, Dr Zygote, Cappo, G Frsh, Chaotik Stylz, Del the Funky Homosapien, Tony Touch and many more, including news on the new Soul on Fire album by Los Angeles (via North Carolina) emcee EtheMadAssassin.

Releasing on 17th September, the contemporary production combined with powerful lyricism – all still drawing from key elements of the Golden Era in which he started performing – is drawing plaudits for its style & approach

The piece is summarized:

Carolina native Ethemadassassin spits unequivocally with gruffness reminiscent of a Rasco or Bun B. Definitely not a believer in dead air, ‘Soul On Fire’ is a belly-burning blaze needing no second invitation to be stoked. Two beats to have you picking up dumbbells, and soul samples resting easy so ETMA can sharpen his bluntness – ‘80s and ‘90s’ letting splash misty-eyed twinkles, ‘Crazy’ a cool Cadillac spin – the Veteran Assassin exudes an air that you’re gonna have to earn the right to get past him.

This week he launched his new single “80’s & 90’s” produced by the UK’s SciFi Stu with whom he has recorded the future Veteran Assassins LP.
