The hip-hop world is abuzz with the promise of a follow-up from one of rap’s most prominent and skilled female emcees, Rah Digga. Following on the heels of her inclusion in BET’s recent documentary My Mic Sounds Nice, Digga delivers a taste of what’s to come with the remix of “This Ain’t No Lil Kid Rap,” the lead single from Classic. Featuring Redman, the pairing is only natural, as the Digga and Redman are good friends and New Jersey natives. Despite the long-running friendship and shared geographic location, this track marks the first time the two have ever appeared on a song together.
The track’s beat, while similar to the original, received some remixing from Nottz, who worked to keep the instrumental’s drums and sparse guitar work intact, allowing the talents of both of these established artists to be the star of the show. And shine they do, picking a bone with critics claiming that ones talent declines with age. “I feel that the best emcees are older and they, in fact, get better with age,” Digga explains. She tears haters to shreds in biting lines like, “I ain’t tryna pick a fight / But this ain’t a Fisher Price, Kidz Bop, Nick At Nite,” quickly proving she hasn’t lost lost a step, further whetting the appetite of those wiating for new material from Rah Digga.
Rah Digga’s sophomore album, Classic, will be available September 14th via Raw Koncept Media Group.
