SOUNDSPOT: ETERNIA
There's an old cliche' that says don't judge a book by its cover, so keep that in mind as I introduce you to a dope female emcee called Eternia who's reppin' New York by way of Toronto, Canada. I have become a true fan of her skills and delivery over the last month, and I think she deserves a little light. Not since ladies like Antoinette, Salt-N-Pepa, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Jean Grae, Apani B, etc. dropped their first verses have I really been interested in the messages of the female emcee. In most cases there is too much sex and not enough substance. New comers like Invincible MC and Eternia both have the true understanding of what being an emcee really is, so I hope they can resurrect the female rap game just a little. At this point, it's pretty one sided and boring! Who said that white females can't rap? Eternia has one of the hardest deliveries that I have heard in a long time. Also, don't get it twisted either, Eternia is already a phenom over in Canada. She's already been nominated for a Juno Award, which is the Canadian equivalent to a Grammy Award. Now, she's moved to New York trying to become a star in the United States as well. We'll see how that goes for her, but until then checkout these videos and get familiar.
