Muja Messiah “Amy Winehouse”
Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: Music, Twin Cities.
Muja Messiah’s latest single takes on Rihanna’s “Umbrella” while celebrating his city, shouting out Amy Winehouse and heeding advice from Russell Simmons. The track comes from Muja’s forthcoming MPLS Massacre which is slated for a mid-March release. While Muja is deep within a Minneapolis hip hop scene that has been caustically deemed college-rap, his voice rears songs that are blatently street-centric, pushing thought and innovation alike with his critical take on Bush’s administration (”Patriot Act”) and his M.I.A. “Paper Planes” mash. As of late Muja was listed on Vibe’s list of The 51 Best MySpace Rappers, hopefully giving his upcoming debut solo album some well-deserved national recognition.
