Rah Digga Uses Fiery Rhymes To Blaze A Trail For JR & PH7 and St. Joe Louis (Video)
Leading up to her beloved Dirty Harriet LP in 2000, Rah Digga had made a host of powerful feature performances. The fiery MC was heard on Fugees’ multi-platinum The Score, DJ Clue’s The Professional, and the famed Lyricist Lounge double album. More than 20 years after she made her first dent on wax, Digga continues to help others be heard, celebrated, and rock the mic.
Today (March 31), Harriet makes way for JR & PH7 and St. Joe Louis. “Duck Duck Goose” links the German production duo (Phonte, Oddisee, Saigon, Freeway, etc.) with trio of Michael Cardigan, Tommie Chase, and Elete Wright. St. Joe Louis represents the same Jersey that Digga has put on for.
Taking a children’s circle-game, this video single finds each MC trying to make their bars stick to your ribs, on JR & PH7’s slick beat. The track sounds like it could belong in a ’70s film chase sense, with modern drums. Late in the song, the duo scratch up some mid-2000s classic Nas. Tommie, Michael, and Elete bust it up about the attitudes they represent. They stick and move like Joe Louis, with rugged rhymes Heads can feel. Rah Digga plays clean-up, shouting out her late collaborator Sean Price as well as her Brick City streets. She proves that her rhymes are sharp as they’ve ever been. The visuals match the tone of the song—rugged, raw, and inspired by skillful Rap.
This maxi-single is from Below System Records, which drops today (March 31).
