Friday Favorite: Female Rapper, Raven Felix

Even in the chaos of the woman's evolving social role, Raven Felix manages to spit out some poignant and powerful lyrics. Her song, "Little Less Hard" featuring Ashley Jones conveys authentic memoir; these lyrics are revealing. Her words in this song come closer to confessional greats like Eminem and Sylvia Plath.

Even in the chaos of woman’s evolving social role, Raven Felix manages to spit out some poignant and powerful lyrics. Her song, “Little Less Hard” featuring Ashley Jones conveys authenticity; these lyrics are revealing. With her words she approaches confessional greats like Eminem and Sylvia Plath.

I’ll admit, Raven Felix still has a long way to go before becoming a great, but today she is my friday favorite. She’s young, so I forgive some of her singles like “Me” which utters a borderline sexist self portrait of herself.

As weak as the tune is, it illustrates the place young women are located these days, stuck in between girl power and a society-imposed hyper sexuality. She has another “self portrait song” called “Girl” which is loads more fun and focuses on female party power.

Even in these early stages of her career, she’s collaborated with rapper legend, Snoop Dogg in “Hit the Gas.” Her recent single, “Bet They Know Now,” features star, Wiz Khalifa. Keep your eye on Raven. She seems to still be in a developmental stage, but as she transforms, I foresee a strong female rapper. @ravenfelix
