Slacker Chic of the Week: MC Isis

Photobucket
You may not have heard of MC Isis of Thunderheist, but neverfear. I am here to school you in the ways of not only her awesomeness, but also of her musical venture with partner in crime Grahm Zilla. The duo mixes Isis' smooth delivery with Grahm's master beat making, resulting in the most chill yet sick sounds we've heard in a long time. One listen to "LBG" or "Cruise Low" and you'll be hooked just like I am.
Although her style is undeniably dope, what I like best about MC Isis is that she is unafraid to sound grimey, nasty and just plain raw. Too often female vocalists-no matter what the genre-seem to be afraid of hitting too hard for fear that they will be dubbed as unladylike or inappropriate. Only a few brave souls dare to throw caution to the wind and say eff that shit. Being a woman does not necessarily mean being demure, prissy and singing about snowflakes on a kitten's nose. From her style to her sound to her charismatic onstage performance, there's nothing I don't like about MC Isis which is why she is this week's Slacker Chic of the Week.
