Georgia Anne Muldrow is one of the most known unknown artist in soul/hip hop music today. Most people don’t know who she is until you sing one of her songs to them, then they tend to realize that they have heard her work via some other artist. I was one of those people up until about a year ago when I stumbled on her version of “Roses” which I had originally heard via her collaboration with Yasiin Bey (Mos Def). I realized it was her song first and I was impressed to see that she was a self-contained artist producing, writing and recording her material. I read about her being married to Dudley Perkins of Stones Throw records. Most impressively she is a mother. Georgia has an old soul, her music sounds like she was discovered by Sly and the Family Stone and they produced an album but due to label politics it never came out and now it finally being released, it has a classic feeling to it.
Georgia is a seeker and truth-teller. The words on her first rap album—produced entirely by Chris Keys—balance a beautiful delivery with brutal honesty. These are the honest confessions of a mother who refuses to turn a blind eye to immediate and ancestral misdeeds. Her rhymes are conscious, but more importantly, they speak to our deeper conscience.
