(February 15, 2011 – Brooklyn, NY) Rah Digga is excited to announce her upcoming show, Ladies First, at Southpaw in Brooklyn, NY. The show, taking place Thursday, February 24th, will be Digga’s first headlining performance in NYC in some time, and she will be joined by performances from Eternia, Nitty Scott MC, Likwuid, Zarinah, and Kalae Allday. Tickets for the event are $10 in advance and $15 the day of the show.
For Digga, this upcoming show date offers the perfect opportunity for her to show off her brand new secret weapon: her live band. “This is my first show in New York with the band, so I’m really excited about that,” says Digga. “It’s been a long time since people have seen a Digga show, so I wanted to make sure the audience is truly entertained. Plus, I’m into live bands, anyway — it offers fans a much more sophisticated experience.”
In addition to the upcoming show, Digga is also releasing the latest remix from Classic, her highly-acclaimed, Nottz-produced sophomore album released in the fall of last year via Raw Koncept Media Group. The track, “Check Me Boo (9th Still Checkin’ Remix),” is 9th Wonder’s own take on the fan favorite “Check Me Boo.” While, as with previous Digga remixes from the likes of Khrysis and others, the lyrics remain untouched, 9th Wonder brings a new feel musically, with understated soulful boom-bap to match the forceful lyrics and contrast Nottz’ heavy drums, deep bass, and organs.
