Heresy – “Da Call Out” video
I loooove an all-female hip hop group, especially when it consists of dope emcees. Heresy is a 4-person group made up of Monie Love, Dominique Larue, Carolina Dirty, and MyVerse. Although I haven’t heard of the latter two, they certainly made their presence known on this first single, along with Monie and Dominique!
Coming from North Carolina, Ohio, and Florida, these four emcees jump on “Da Call Out” with fiery verses, aggressive flows, and something to say. Over a soulful boom bap beat, produced by Mista Lawnge of Black Sheep, they lace lyrics that promote self-respect, unity, love, and womanhood, while protesting police brutality, violence, and hate. Great talent is represented here. I don’t know about you, but I’m incredible excited about this EP. If you’re not, we might have a problem.
Directed by Charles Ewing, watch these four powerful women throw down on the lyricism, with footage from the studio, radio shows, and real-life recordings depicting social injustice. Also, be on the look out for Heresy‘s 5-track, self-titled EP, due out on August 14th via J Rawls‘ imprint Polar Entertainment.
“In a time where many music genres are suffering in an array of areas, my wish was to put together something seldom heard of in organic Hip Hop today, that being a group,” says Monie about the project. “I wanted to further push the envelope with the neglected idea of a FEMALE group. Thus the birth of Heresy.”
