The surge of female rap within the last ten consecutive years of hip-hop music and culture has been at a phenomenal high, and Harlem-born lyricist Raina Simone is definitely one of the shooting stars ready to blast into the spotlight. Initially amassing a larger fan base from her sharp, witty and informative freestyles, the Howard Alum already experienced several viral moments. With single and visual releases and a brewing portfolio of lyrical magic, Raina Simone is undoubtedly projected to be the next female lyrical giant.
Currently preparing to release her debut To My Hearts EP, slated to release this Thursday, September 15th! She is ready to gift hip-hop connoisseurs a stellar body of work, and her fans some new music. The To My Hearts EP will be a different take for Raina Simone, where she pays homage to the culture and engagement of NYC drill music. For those familiar with Raina Simone, she is primarily a conscious and political rapper — and the drill twist is gonna be a treat.
