Carter 2 Carter Interviews Rasheeda
Rasheeda, the famous female MC hailing from Atlanta, Georgia has been cranking out hits since early 2000. As a teenager while her friends were transitioning from Barbie dolls to make-up, Rasheeda was busy writing rhymes and perfecting her craft. Rasheeda has always ruled as the Queen of Crunk but she has also established herself as one of the sexiest women in hip- hop.
Rasheeda started out as a member of the teenage hip- hop trio Da Kaperz, which was signed to D-LO Entertainment and is still who Rasheeda is signed to till this day. When D-LO decided to launch her solo career they joined forces with Motown Records and released her solo, debut album Dirty South in 2001. The album contained the dirty south anthem, “Do It (Do Da Damn Thang)” with Pastor Troy. Her follow up was 2002’s “A Ghetto Dream” released independently thru D-Lo Entertainment. That album featured collaborations with the superstars of crunk, Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz and secured Rasheeda’s place as “The Queen of Crunk”.
