When most people think about the mythical monster Medusa, they often envision an image of a terrifying creature with scary snake hair and eyes so powerful, they turn anyone who catches their gaze into stone. While this is historically accurate, historians and music fans alike are now shifting their ideas about what and who Medusa is in present time.
Medusah Black: a monstrous female MC who hails from Rhode Island equipped with a gruesome flow and venomous lyrics to match. Not only is Medusah Black a monster MC but she is also a singer-songwriter, studio engineer, choreographer, hip hop educator, and community organizer.
Medusah Black is also the co-founder of the RI Hip Hop Union and the Director of After-school Programming at As220 Youth; a free arts education program in Providence, Rhode Island.
