Crowning a Queen : Queens D. Light presents California Wildflower @QueensDlight

Queens D. Light

It could not be clearer that the sun shines bright in California! Hailing from the notorious beauty of Oakland comes new MC Queens D. Light. More than just a rapper, she is a griot; a storyteller who speaks the truth and holds the culture of a people.

What makes her rapping special is her resistance to follow the impulse of making a sport of flashiness. Instead, she controls the music to tell stories, inviting listeners to pause and transcend to higher places. Queens’ jazz influences are present with every lonely cry of the saxophone, the pregnant spaces between piano pluckings. And her connection to soul is rooted deep with the featured snippets of  Nina Simone speaking on the beauty of Blackness.

Queens D. Light is an artist to watch for the sake of her artistry. Listen to this powerful work California Wildflower here, and then name your price for it.
