L.A.-based Raven Sorvino continues to elbow her way into the group of female MCs worth talking about with Playa Del Rey, the follow-up to her Paper Girl EP that dropped at the top of the year.
Greatly influenced by the lyrical styles of names like Foxy Brown, NWA, LL Cool J and MC Lyte, Raven’s skills have earned the attention and respect such rap luminaries as Dr. Dre and Diddy, and she came close to landing on each of their respective labels. Things didn’t work out on either front but Raven kept hustling, finding a home as a member of L.A.’s Language Artz crew and taking full advantage of the ever-burgeoning indie scene, digitally promoting herself and her music.
As her buzz gets louder, the Paper Girl continues to grind and keep her growing fanbase supplied with new music to rock to. Playa Del Rey features production from Rich Kidd, The Formula, Terrace Martin and others, as well guest verses from the likes of Odd Future’s Casey Veggies and, of course, her Language Artz brethren.
