#Exclusive New Video from @DutchRebelleFN “Ammo” right now on FemaleFlow.com

DUTCH REBELLE……We feel like that’s all we have to say, but some of you just don’t know who she is yet. “Ammo”, the follow up to Dutch Rebelle’s “Sunday Morning” is a motivational record comparing courage and strength to ammunition. Produced by Touch N Play and directed by Seba Films this dark video turns the coin on the fellas as the ladies set a new mark. As a friendly game of pool turns into a kidnapping, we bet that another villain won’t mess around in this town. Garnishing the Haitian flag Dutch Rebelle is not an emcee to mess with. Straight out of Boston she has shown us nothing but quality work since we have met her.

ReBelle has opened up for big name artists, such as, The Wu Tang Clan, Busta Rhymes, Melanie Fiona, and Cam’ron. In 2011, ReBelle released her debut mixtape, “Beauty vs. The Beast”. Within the same year, ReBelle was part of the Boston Phoenix’s “Freshmen Hip Hop Class”. She won at the New England Urban Music Awards in the category of Best Female Hip Hop; along with FN, winning for Best Group. She was invited to perform at nationwide concerts like, the 2nd Annual Female Hip Hop Honors in Los Angeles.  In 2012, ReBelle released her debut EP “Married to the Music”. The EP was very well received. The Boston Globe called her “The ReBelle with A Cause” in an October edition of the highly respected newspaper. Nationwide performance requests began to flow in, such as the SWSX (South by Southwest) annual concert in Austin, Texas.  She is currently in the process of completing her debut album, Vodou.

Gen-strive

“For six years, Mississippi-born MC Genesis Be has stood out as an inimitable presence in the New York underground hip-hop scene. Arriving in 2007 when outsiders were still often faced with resistance, she’s stood her ground and carved out a niche as one of the most heard female voices in the New York indie-ground. In preparation for the release of her new album Genesequa, she’s dropped her latest single “Tampons and Tylenol.” We spoke to Genesis about the song as a feminist statement as well as her reservations as an artist……” click to read more!

The Village Voice: GENESIS BE’s Declaration of Women’s Power by Chaz Kangas

“Genesis explained the birth of the title to Sound of the City: “My friend and I were at the convenience store looking for tampons and I was upset that I couldn’t find tampons or Tylenol. Going back and forth, I thought they should just package them together. My friend began singing those words together.”……read on~

#NewVideo – by @NarubiSelah “Gun Law”

“It was put in there so that citizens would have the ability if their government became oppressive they could defend themselves against oppressive government…” Jessie Ventura

PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE

Narubi Selah has released her second video this year directed by Alexey Wind  titled “Gun Law” (produced by Jess Wess) which we love and feel the timing is impeccable as recent discussions have escalated in communities, amongst government, lawmakers due to violent acts by police & citizens. Either innocent or guilty we are entitled to a fair trial before persecution and especially death. So many of our young men and women are being murdered more and more by the hands of those who are paid to “protect” us. Whether you feel or agree that we have a right to bear arms this video with definitely spark a conversation about the direction of our lives as our day by day our rights are being stripped. Brooklyn based, Narubi Selah is a teacher, Dean of Students and carries 2 Master Degrees so behind her lyrics is not only wisdom but an undeniable intelligence that few emcees carry. She is about her community, her word and hiphop…. SALUTE!
