Just when it seems that the icy-coated, flashy, stereotypical elements of the “Rap Game” has strangled the last breath out of the Hip Hop culture, a springing forth of new artist seem to be catapulting out of the woodwork with their authentic sound and innovative lyrical content. We’ve seen it happen over the last decade. Starving Hip Hop fans are forced to huddle, like scavengers, over crumbs that symbolize hope for anything that remotely sounds like “True Hip Hop“. With the success of highly creative artists such as Kanye West, OutKast, Ludacris, Common, and Talib Kweli, the door has opened ever so slightly to allow “True Emcee’s” to squeeze in and make their mark. Pushing through the male-dominated world of Hip Hop comes just what you’ve been waiting for and missing, Lin Que.
This Queens New York native takes it back to the original feel and grit of True Hip Hop with an up to date twist, on the rocks, that you can knock back for your pleasure. Her latest release "Let it Fall", which featured MC Lyte, came out of the Elecktra Records camp and the video was directed by Hype Williams. Hip Hop fiends kept their eyes on her just waiting to get more acquainted with this multidimensional lyricist. She has collaborated with various artists such as Will Downing, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Joi Cardwell, Steele/Smith & Wesson, The Beatnuts, Monifah, Ce Ce Peniston and more. Her last venture was a brief encounter with the Protect Your Neck group "The Five Deadly Venoms". After leaving the group for business reasons, she remained writing and creating music with producers Sugar Al Cayne, Ayatollah, and Azteknique. She has written for MC Lyte, and has been producing music as well. You can look forward to her new album "GODspeed" which will be released within the last quarter of 2007. The first single off of GODspeed, which happens to go by the same name, will be released on 7/25/07. Her no-nonsense lyrical delivery sets the foundation for this long awaited album. In addition to the many tracks that will keep any “True Hip Hopper” happy, she captivates the listeners with her take on the state of Hip Hop. The track titled "Hip Hop Holy War" speaks for itself. "Let Um Know" explains her journey through the music industry while simultaneously elaborating on her inner voyage regarding her loyalty to the Hip Hop artform. "Last Call" sheds light on her painful struggle with alcohol and marijuana. "GODspeed" reeks of her obvious Love for Hip Hop and her courageous attempt to save it''s culture. Her music, while still preserving its marketable appeal, portrays her struggle being a strong female in a male-dominated industry which seems to rather depict woman as “scantily dressed video hoes”. Lin Que is a breath of fresh air and has a lot to offer 2007. It would be nice to add a female to the roster to help relieve the growing desire for something “REAL”.
" Fan, for real, before I had my first deal,
Love of the art form, respect for the field,
I’m bringing back to life what this industry kills,
True Emcee''s, the Certified Artist with skills..."
