"Noteworthy Underground Indie Albums"

The world of underground and independent hip-hop is a hard one in which to find success. For many artists, it takes years and many albums to develop their own sounds, voices and styles. Therefore, I have created this list of noteworthy underground and independent hip-hop albums. Although none of these albums made my reviews or what's bumping lists, each held a glimmer of something special.

"Medinah Starr on 102.3FM (Interview & Exclusive Tracks)"

First off this show is a combination of our radio show live and a portion that I re-recorded as the stations logger F-ed and only gave us access to the first 40 minutes of Tuesday’s show. Meaning well this podcast includes our interview with Medinah Starr we lost out on the Termanology interview we also did that same night. The actually show if you heard it was bananas!

Focusing on the positive we started things off by chatting with Medinah Starr who is a very insightful, articulate, and passionate MC repping Philly. These aspects all come up in our interview, but even more importantly exist throughout her debut album “Beyond Reazon”. Medinah hit us and you up with a earlier Christmas gift by letting us preview the album a whole month before it’s release date of Janurary 22, 2007. I chose these three cuts as I felt they showed the many talented sides of Medinah Starr.

Medinah Starr

Her name says it all! Medinah Starr is truly a "Star", a shining ray of hope, a refreshing spirit, a poet, a songwriter, an activist and an MC. She has been described as a “breath of fresh air” in an industry over-saturated with gimmicks and negative role models.

Refusing to be portrayed as an over-sexualized, gun-clapping female MC, Medinah created her own lane and refused to be compromised. So many of us long for the days of Queen Latifah sporting the kente cloth, wearing an ankh and spitting lyrics about unity and self-respect.

We remember MC Lyte and Roxanne Shante going head to head with other MCs, male and female and emerging victorious. It is these women amongst others that gave birth to Medinah’s unique sound. It is a fusion of spoken word and powerful lyrics with a street-smart edge over Hip-Hop beats!

Reviewers and critics praise the West Philly native for her creativity in addressing controversial issues such as racism, sexism, domestic violence and poverty. Emory Garris from writes, “No one else’s story connected with me the way that hers did”. 100.3FM The Beat, a Philadelphia-based FM station, labeled Ms. Starr “The Next to Blow” in Philly!

Motivated by her struggle to be heard and her passion for music Ms. Starr has expanded her fan base way beyond the US borders. Medinah has a strong fan base in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Canada. She was interviewed on the Urban Renewal Project in Vancouver, BC in December of 2007 and her single made the “Best of 2007” list in Canada.

Medinah Starr has collaborated with artists and producers such as Guru from the legendary Gang Starr, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Nick Wiz, Torae, Access Immortal and others.

Medinah Starr's two projects, Beyond Reazon (1/2008) and Serious Intermission (12/2008) are both available on Apple i-tunes,, and at some local retailers.

Medinah Starr's Music can be described as "Socially conscious hip-hop with a street smart edge. Medinah Starr's music is an unconventional fusion of spoken word and lyricism over a variety of beats and sounds."
