Dirty Harriet [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Rashaun Hall
Hip-hop has long been a male-dominated world, but from the raunchy lyrics of Trina to the gangsta chic posturing of Da Brat, female MCs are holdin' it down in the new millennium. The next female MC hoping to make a name for herself is the raspy-voiced Rah Digga. On her debut album, DIRTY HARRIET, Rah -- the only female member of Busta Rhymes' animated Flipmode Squad -- holds her own amid a testosterone-fueled guest shot from hip-hop newcomers The Outsidaz on "The Last Word," just as she did on the blazin' remix of Black Rob's "Whoa!" Released in advance of the album, the single "Tight" had hip-hop headz noddin' with its mixture of ill metaphors and subterranean beats ...

Barnes & Noble - Rashaun Hall
Hip-hop has long been a male-dominated world, but from the raunchy lyrics of Trina to the gangsta chic posturing of Da Brat, female MCs are holdin' it down in the new millennium. The next female MC hoping to make a name for herself is the raspy-voiced Rah Digga. On her debut album, DIRTY HARRIET, Rah -- the only female member of Busta Rhymes' animated Flipmode Squad -- holds her own amid a testosterone-fueled guest shot from hip-hop newcomers The Outsidaz on "The Last Word," just as she did on the blazin' remix of Black Rob's "Whoa!" Released in advance of the album, the single "Tight" had hip-hop headz noddin' with its mixture of ill metaphors and subterranean beats crafted by The Beatminerz's Mr. Walt. Other cameo appearances come from fellow femme fatales Even and Sonja Blade on the girl-power anthem "Do the Ladies Run This" and Bad Boy crooner Carl Thomas on the funkdafied "So Cool." Rah also re-arranges the catchy hook from the Boogie Down Productions classic "Jimmy" to spell out her name on "What They Call Me." With that wicked combination of mad skills and sex appeal, Rah Digga is poised to follow in the footsteps of MC Lyte and Queen Latifah, who have balanced their femininity and lyrical prowess with stellar results.
All Music Guide - Matt Conaway
In the hip-hop arena, female MCs have usually been overshadowed by their predominantly male counterparts. While it has taken a decade for Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, and Lauryn Hill to earn respect, the wave of scantily clad MCs that followed in their footsteps have transgressed, as these leading ladies are more renowned for their curvaceous figures then their lyrical endowments. Leading Busta Rhymes Flipmode Squad into a new millennium, Rah Digga's debut, Dirty Harriet, proves why she is an exception to the rule. While Digga's verses are replete with an endless array of colorful metaphors, she proves to be more then a punchline MC, showing diversity over the signature horn loops of Pete Rock on "What They Call Me" and the choppy Premier laced "Lessons of Today." Regardless of gender, what is most intriguing about Digga's debut lays in her ability to transcend genres, as "Tight" and "Imperial" with Busta Rhymes are both commercially viable records that any bedroom DJ would actually admit to spinning.
Rolling Stone - Pat Blashill
Mostly, Dirty Harriet is a snapshot of roughneck sisterhood: Few rappers have used the word 'bitch' with such empowerment.
Vibe - Miguel Burke
...effortlessly transports the rap world back to a time when female rhythm slingers’ careers didn’t rely on breast implants, the illest nana, or their adeptness at fellatio.

    One of the best......

    Rah Digga is one the best female lyricists in the game today. Digga doesnt get a lot of credit for what she does. She can stand toe to toe with some of he heavyweights in the game. I'm waiting on her next LP to dropped. Hopefully the second is just as good as the first!!

    PEACE TO THE ONES THAT DON'T BITE

    Easily the best full hip hop CD put out in years by a female MC, nobody else has come close. This CD is consistent from top to bottom. Rah Digga definitely holds it down and proves that she can hang with her mail counterparts. The production on this album is outstanding with Digga choosing to work with more than one producer. By the way Rah Digga, I love your voice, forget all the non believers and haters. PEACE!
