About RAtheMC: Nearly a decade ago Washington, DC Rapper/Singer RAtheMC began her undefeatable journey into music. After completing three successful mixtapes, earning a 2009 MTV VMA Breakout Artist Nomination and sharing Tour Dates alongside Wale, The Clipse and Hip-Hop Pioneers Kurtis Blow and Afrika Bambaataa, the journey for RatheMC seems to be at a monumental point. While in the final stages of recording her highly anticipated debut album Heart Of A Champion (released August 31, 2010 under the imprint of Studio 43, a boutique Record Label headed by Music Industry veteran Kenny Burns) RAtheMC was preparing to share the High’s and low’s of her Journey and the woman that has evolved from it.
Being a Female Rapper, in this male dominated musical genre RAtheMC has managed to go up against some of the most notable rap male competitors while respectfully paving own her lane. On the outside she is seen as a fashion forward, beautiful young woman but on the inside lays an intelligent, social conscious young woman on a mission. That mission being to influence to the youth and speak for and to the voiceless. Wanting to inspire and uplift women through music similar to the way she was inspired by Hip-Hop Legend Lauryn Hill.
In the summer of 2010, RAtheMC was featured along with music’s “It Boy” Drake and other emerging musical artists in Sprite ® “The Spark” National Marketing Campaign. Later that year, RAtheMC was mentioned in the BET special “My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women and Hip-Hop” and featured on MTV2’s Sucker Free. The journey for RAtheMC has had an array of moments, good and bad, but she seems to appreciate and learn from every moment of it. She truly has the heart of a champion.
