Monday! July 20th! Providence Emcee MEDUSAH BLACK! Plus IRON POET CHAMPIONSHIPS!
FEATURED ARTIST: MEDUSAH BLACK, a monstrous MC who has reign over an entire island, Rhode Island to be exact, and whose gruesome flow and venomous lyrics infect even the most masculine of male competitors. Her snake like curls dangerously frame her silhouette while her abysmal eyes tempt, divide and conquer anyone who catches their gaze. Not only is Medusah Black a monster MC but she is also a singer-songwriter, studio engineer, choreographer, graphic designer, hip hop educator, activist, event coordinator, promoter, artist manager and founder of Monstergodess Entertainment, a conglomerate of female entrepreneurs, entertainers and musicians. She is also the co-founder of the RI Hip Hop Union and runs a hip hop program for the youth at a local arts organization in Providence, Rhode Island. Last year MBlack formed a working partnership with Waasawki Music Group and plans to work more closely with them on upcoming projects and events later this year. To date MBlack has released 2 solo mixtapes “My BiPolar Beauty Vol 1” and “Soular System” and has collaborated lyrically and from an engineering standpoint on 6 other albums. She has performed and hosted on more than 100 different stages and has been nominated twice for Best Female MC by Flipside Radio. Last year MBlack received a “Making An Impact” award from Rhyme Culture Rhode Island and was asked to perform at Foo Fest, a huge music festival in downtown Providence.
