No one has a flow like Bahamadia. This great record comes from the eccentric debut album entitled Kollage, which dropped in 1996. That summer this was nonstop repeat on my CD player.
I was sure she would blow up bigger than god or any other MC; the Roots got her and Guru really understood.
In the time of Lauren Hill and The Fugees, The Score showed that same year, it seems Bahamadia fell between the cracks for awhile.
Her MC style has carved a huge influence on true Hip Hop and her impact is deeply felt today on MCs male and female alike. This track exemplifies the cool smooth mood of her soulful style.

Acid no hat tricks a classic so park that ass like Jurassic and check

Complimenting zig-a-zicks with wisdom like the 5 percenters when doing
Mathematics flips scripts like acrobatics intrinsic in rapping like
Insulin to diabetics text is didactic with nutrience like muslix on
Wax flex facts like hydraulics when vexed to catch flicks by Miramax
