Singer/songwriter and all-around creative Queenie La’Rouge caught our attention with a couple of joints from her stash. The Chi-town native started her music path via poetry and forayed into songwriting a bit later after a shoulder injury truncated her initial dreams of being a pro boxer.
The first cut has a dark trap production that hits the mark and sees La’Rouge in her element. She delivers a mix of fiery bars steeped in bravado and insights as she gives the listenr a small glimpse into her life. Joining her on the track is fellow Chi-town rapper Polarbear Triple f/k/a TripleM who gives his own experience over the moody backdrop.
“1991” is built on a cinematic and punchy backdrop ripe with chopped vocal samples and thick 808s. La’Rouge once again brings the bacon home with her impassioned flow and evocative lyrics as she states her claim in a harsh world where nothing is handed down free and there is always a cost to pay. It’s quite thought-provoking, reflective, and emotional as well.
