While many women in hip-hop choose to use sex, and blatantly sexual lyrics to sell their music, rapper Dejha B has chosen to compete on her own terms as a rapper, songwriter, businesswoman, mother and a boss. As a result, the rapper known as the Black Angel of hip-hop uses her bold lyrics to showcase her boss mentality, and to shed light on real issues woman can relate to. She showcases her bold lyrics with one of her new singles called Freedom which outlines police brutality, and the history of racism in the United States.

The Platinum selling R&B group Allure, with hits such as Head Over Heels featuring Nas, and All Cried Out featuring 112 created a female rap search for their new single I DO. Dejha B won the rap contest, and would be the first female rapper to have a song and video with the legendary R&B group.
