Dash Machete, a new dance music vocalist that calls herself the Rap Game Angelina Jolie, shared “C’mon” last month. The nineteen-year-old Haitian transplant now resides in Brooklyn, New York and has captured the attention of fellow journalists around the ‘net. According to her website, the young rapper with the catchy name and British linguistics, she learned about Hip-Hop when her mother bought Kelis’ third album — Tasty — for her. Hear the new record below. Then, watch the official video for “Below.” If you’re a journalist or editor like me, you will find comedic value in her line about talking trash online.
Aside from the music, their garbs and hairstyles are beautiful. Get into it. Especially the gum chewing scene, with braces.
