staHHr has been perfecting her craft and honing her lyrical warrior skills since the latter part of hip hop’s” Golden Era”. Carving a niche for herself by interweaving intellect, natural law, metaphysics and social awareness with the essence of pure, unadulterated hip hop, she consistently provides a welcome breath of fresh air. No stranger to the elements and culture of hip hop, staHHr has earned stripes and sharpened her sword in street ciphers, mc battles (Blaze, The Source, Red Bull, etc.) and performing on local, national and global stages. During the course of her career, this verbal vanguard has accumulated a global fan base and an impressive resume of releases that include DOOM’s “Mm Food” and “Born Like This” and King Geedorah‘s “Take Me to Your Leader”.
staHHr is an integral part of the Atlanta Hip Hop community and formerly the lone feminine component of the Subverse Music and Metal Face Records rosters. Although she’s been releasing music, doing features and performing with other artists for close to two decades, it wasn’t until 2008 that she unleashed her debut “Almost Neva Was” (the first of three albums) via the Beatvizion Music digital imprint. She followed up with a compilation of features and freestyles in 2011 (“That Was You?”) and her second album in 2012 “Mother Nature with a Molotov: Molotov Season”. Renown for her phenomenal spontaneous freestyle ability, high energy and lyrics that embody the essence of hip hop, this sister has more than earned those “two H’s for hip hop” in her attribute. staHHr has worked and performed with a diverse group of artists that includes Del, DOOM, dead prez, Smif N Wessun/Boot Camp Clik, Medusa, John Robinson, Ab-Soul, Luciano, Amiri Baraka, Shinehead, El Da Sensei (Artifacts), Sha Stimuli, Planet Asia, Immortal Texhnique, Homeboy Sandman, Bocafloja, AG (DITC), J-Live and C-Rayz Walz. She has performed at several events to raise awareness and advocate for justice for Mumia Abu Jamal, Troy Davis, Assata Shakur and Mutulu Shakur.
Just as passionate about health and nutrition as she is music, staHHr has been applying and self studying holistic health, nutrition, alternative healing and diet for close to two decades. She has plans to share her hands on experience via diet/nutrition based workshops and one on one consultations, with families, children and specifically with [hip hop] artists, a group that she feels could benefit greatly from making more sound diet and lifestyle choices.
Currently, staHHr is working on “Respect Due”, a series of photos, videos and freestyles that pay homage to her favorite and often unsung legends in hip hop. Poised with mic in hand and an unending reservoir of lyrics, light and love, staHHr’s mission and focus is simple: preserve, innovate, heal and bring balance to the culture of hip hop with her music.
