Mini Bio (1)
One of the most respected and premier mc's - regardless of gender - Rashia Fisher aka Rah Digga, has been legendary. She started off the only female member of New Jersey's acclaimed hip hop group, Da Outsidaz, where she also met future husband, Young Zee. Rah exploded on the music scene when she caught the eye of A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip, who introduced Rah to Busta Rhymes, who brought her onboard as the only female member of his Flipmode Squad. It wasn't long before Rah would be featured on some of hip-hop's most ground-breaking and influential projects, from Grammy winners and nominees to platinum juggernauts to gold gems, including: The Fugees' The Score ("Cowboys"); DJ Clue's The Professional, Pt. 2 ("Getting It"); several Busta projects - When Disaster Strikes("We Could Take It Outside"), Genesis ("Betta Stay Up in Your House"); and It Ain't Safe No More ("I Know What You Want"), just to name a few. Following Rah and the Flipmode Squad striking gold with The Imperial Album, and winning the Source Hip Hop Music Award for Best New Group, in 2000 she finally released her solo project, Dirty Harriet. A critically-acclaimed debut, it would produce several chart-topping singles - "Imperial" (featuring Busta), "Tight", "Break Fool" and "Tight The Remix." She also released the hit single, "Party and Bullsh*t" with the heavily spun remix that included Eve and Missy Elliot. Staying true to her roots, Rah has performed consistently on classic "underground" and cutting-edge artist and DJ compilation projects, such as: The Lyricist Lounge Vol. 1 ("Be Ok"); the anti-police brutality Hip Hop For Respect, in memory of Amadou Diallo; Talib Kweli's Reflection Eternal/Train of Thought ("Down for the Count"); DJ Whoo Kid & Lloyd Banks' Money in the Bank ("Party Over Here"), and many others. In addition, Rah has worked with some of hip hop's top producers, including: Rockweilder, Primo, Pete Rock, Scott Storch and Jus Blaze. Over the last ten years she has also revealed yet another great talent - acting. Starring alongside Beyonce and Wyclef Jean, Rah made her debut in MTV's Carmen: A Hip Hopera. She was also able to display her comedy skills as a guest star on FOX's "MAD TV." Though she was featured in two hip hop documentaries, Rah made her acting film debut in Thirteen Ghosts.
Now, Ten years after her solo gold solo debut, Dirty Harriet, Rah Digga is going back to her hip-hop roots with her new album "Classic". This album, produced by hip-hop super-producer Knotts, is Rah Digga at her purest, going back to her B-girl roots, with ten of her most hard hitting and lyrically challenging tracks to date. It is what her fans and fellow artists have been waiting ten years to hear. The return of Rah Digga has been long overdue, and it is finally upon us.
