Fresh Face [#004]: Fallon
Where have all the female emcees gone?
Lil Kim is in prison. Foxy Brown is suffering from hearing loss. Queen Latifah and Eve are seeking greener pastures in Hollywood, and Lauryn Hill is struggling to find herself. Where does that leave the future of hip hop music? We believe the answer is to be found in a new crop of lyricists eager to pick up where their predecessors left off.
Fallon is one of those young, hungry talents. The Harlem resident has fused impressively produced tracks with clever lyrics to establish herself as a formidable force in the world of indie hip-hop. Much like Jean Grae (a once-underground rapper on the fast track to becoming a household name), Fallon might just have what it takes to fill the shoes of the lyrical giants that have paved the way.
