It’s #ThrowBackThursday! I’ve been feeling Saafir for the last few days, so he’s my pick for this #tbt. However, it’s also International Women’s Day and as a lover of hip hop, I knew immediately how to celebrate both occasions.
Some of you may remember Eminem coming with a song called “25 to Life” . I can’t lie, I don’t like it 🤷🏾♀️, but before Em, was Saafir, who along with Mahasin created the wonderful wonderfulness that blows me away to this day. In honor of women and women in hip hop, I choose to shine a light on someone who is definitely overlooked.
A member of the infamous collective, Hobo Junction, Mahasin’s delivery alone undoubtedly solidified her position within the group. Her verse on “25 to Life” hit me hard back then and still does. I remember searching for more from her over the years, but never found much. I wish we could have heard more from this queen. Do yourself a favor and get in the know by checking out the track below. Happy #IWD y’all.
