Portland-based Black queer artist Micah The Rapper gives us a heartfelt piece titled “Unsettling.” Backed by a smooth soulful backdrop, she shares her fears and uncertainty when it comes to friendships and relationship in this day and age where we are still dealing with the pandemic. Armed with a calm, collected flow she really gives us an insightful and relatable song that we all can rock to.
Imani is a free-spirited, vibrant music creative from the South who seamlessly blends flirtatious lyricism with spirited storytelling. Her songs celebrate her radical authenticity, and her words beckon you to do the same. Inspired by hip-hop from the funk-laden West Coast and jazz-infused East Coast; Imani's rhythmic melodies and upbeat performances captivate audiences and capture hearts.
Laid-back and confident, with a mischievous energy that brings out the cocky energy within each listener, Imani’s vibey and catchy wordplay drives the party.
