Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City: Rah Digga

August 23 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City, NJPAC’s free outdoor music series in Chambers Plaza, continues with an evening of rap featuring Newark’s own Rah Digga.

Recently classified as “one of rap’s most prominent women MCs” by allmusic.com, Rah Digga was initially discovered by Q-Tip at a performance at the New York Lyricist’s Lounge. She was soon cast as the lone female MC in Busta Rhymes’ Flipmode Squad, and was a member of The Outsidaz, a group that included Eminem. As an actress, she has appeared on the big screen in Thirteen Ghosts and on MTV in the hip-hop opera Carmen, starring Beyoncé.

In addition to her performing career, Rah Digga is the founder of Newark’s Lyrics Matter LLC, a community organization that uses hip-hop music to instruct youth about the importance of education, history and culture.
