Obviously, The Future Is Female

Female emcees are on the come up, and it's time to take notice before it's too late.  The amount of talent coming out of the scene is sometimes unnoticed, but some of these artists will be the next one to blow.  The Future Is Female Showcase only gave us a preview of who's up next.

529 in East Atlanta Village hosted the showcase on their live stage.  The crowd was small, but the talent was high.  Emcees Yani Mo and Rene Brown came to show out and put on a great show despite the size of the audience.  529 provided an intimate, smoker friendly setting that was appropriate for these performers.

Songstress Yani Mo gave the audience a few things to think about through her spoken word.  She had a sort of neo-soul vibe mixed with a poet’s flow.  Her performance included live instrumentation with a mixture of rapping and singing.

From the drums to the sax and slow walking bass line, her music had a nice, full world sound.  She had a wide range of style, from Hip-hop and R&B with a touch of Jazz.  Her set was appropriate for snaps and head nods.

Rene Brown was up next, and while her DJ/manager was setting up her sound, she wasted no time getting the party started.  Her “Nobody for President” tee got the crowd chatting as she pulled out two joints and passed them to the audience and a shot to the audience.  She started her set by spitting her bars acapella, and got the crowd super turnt.  As she started spitting, the people from the other room poured in to see what they were missing.

Her personality couldn’t be matched, it was imminent that she was a savage.  She connected with the audience in a way many artists cannot.  From her rhymes to her stage presence, there wasn’t a person in the room that didn’t seem impressed.  Her Southern influence mixed with a Cali flow, it’s only a matter of time before she blows.  Brown recently toured with Schoolboy Q across the West Coast and overseas.  Although this was one of her smallest performances, she made the most of it and I’m excited to see where she goes next.
