Philly punks Nothing are back from the brink with a new record that draws on some really, really bad times.
Dirty Harriet, as she's also known, uses rap as a weapon....
With a deep brassy voice, that feels like she gargles with molasses, and an aggressive flow, the top-notch beats are made secondary to her verbal pugilism. Every cut is also uptempo, apart from the hilarious soul ballad parody that foreshadows 'F**k Y'all N*gg*s', and she's so much larger than life comes over cartoon-like.
She's for real, though. Dance forays like the pummellin' 'Do The Ladies Run This...' and the adrenalin overdoses of 'Imperial' can only serve to consolidate the New Jersey native and part-time Outsidaz's strong position. What Rah Digga does best is literally spit venom, as evinced by 'Straight Spittin', Part II', complete with dropped saliva samples on the beat. And with more metaphors than the average dictionary, who can begrudge her success?
