StaHHr "Get Right"

The urban lifestyle has always been a hive of activity in the world of hip-hop culture. First there is the visually arresting images of graffiti, then there is the hypnotic rotation of turntables. You can't forget the acrobatic display of b-boys or the oral expression of MCing.

The lyricist or the MC has long been the center of attention in the sub-culture of underground hip-hop. There are often many questions about who is the best lyricist or who can beat who in a battle. The topic of discussion also centers on who's new record is wack, and who's new record is heat, or which newcomers sound good and shows promise.  Lyrics, delivery and production all play key roles in judging the quality of underground hip-hop. Noncommercial rap has always had more poetic value than its corporate under produced counterpart.

This week our spotlight is on StaHHr who drops another video from her Mother Nature with a Molotov: Molotov Season album. Directed by Will Feagins Jr, the video for "Get Right" (produced by Astronote) captures StaHHr in her natural element, getting "right" implementing yoga, nature, meditation, etc. to center herself and focus.
