While women fight for recognition in hip-hop scenes across the country, Chicago is one city with a large contingent of extremely fierce female rappers. And among these reigning underground queens, Sasha Go Hard stands out for her prolific output of anthems for tough, independent women who prize female friendships, get their own money, and don’t take crap from the patriarchy. Her music is effortlessly feminist and cathartic to listen to for anyone who needs a healthy ego boost in the face of misogyny. Not to mention Sasha is a beast on the mic who deserves broader recognition beyond her hometown. See her at the queer hip-hop party Swagger Like Us at Oasis in San Francisco this Friday.
