Tairrie B is known today as the voice of a heavy metal group named My Ruin. But for the length of a recognized album – Power of a Woman – , and one unreleased – Single White Female – she was signed with Ruthless Records and was the ‚protégé‘ of Los Angeles based NWA’s Eazy E. Being embedded in that network she counts features of Dr. Dre, Eazy E and The D.O.C. on her first record.

So, Iggy Azalea isn’t the first white female from the South… and after all – will the at|tribute ‚first‘ already and finally be dismissed from the discourse of women who rap!?!? pls. ‚cos it doesn’t help much. thnx.
