Gifted Gab - Cause And Effect Album Release Party Seattle
Add to Calendar
When she was nine years old, "Gabby" Kadushin used to walk from Montlake Elementary School to her Central District home and write raps about the girls she didn’t like. She memorized radio songs after two listens and spent Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays in church, where her mother sang in the choir. Throughout her childhood and teens, she soaked up the power of East Coast female MCs like Queen Latifah, MC Lyte and Bahamadia. She rode around in cars pumping Bay Area legends like Mac Dre and E-40. Outside of church, Michael Jackson and Tupac were her religious icons.
In 2012, Kadushin, 21, released her first EP under the name Gifted Gab (formerly Gift uh Gab), Queen La’Chiefah, and emerged a fully-formed composite of her influences: Her wall-to-wall, classicist flow combines a combative, unrestrained love of self, codeine-dipped blunts and West Coast lingo with an unflinching acknowledgement of death and those she’s lost. Her influences inform her style, but they don’t stunt her scope; she can take the stage alongside her peers as well as she can open for her idols. She’s the self-possessed female among the many dudes in her crew, Moor Gang, Seattle’s answer to the Wu-Tang Clan.
In May of 2014, Gab dropped her first full length project titled "Girl Rap" and it quickly gained national success. She's opened for legends such as Dj Quik, Rakim,& Cam'ron, performing at this years Sasquatch 2014, and being recognized in XXL and TIME magazine amongst many other outlets.... this girl is on her grind and has talent out the ass and needs to be recognized on a global level.
