Spiritual. Expressive. Experimental. Raw. L.atasha A.lcindor , also known as L.A. is the essence of artistic energy in word and rhyme. Coming from Flatbush, Brooklyn, the young trailblazer utilizes her many talents ranging from poetry and dance to give her bites and story to hip hop. Starting out as a spoken word artist, the now emcee takes upon her shoulders the ancestry of wordplay and the devotion to tradition and spins circles around the current phases of music in hopes that her art may change the paradigm of time. In the last two and a half years of her blossoming career as an emcee, L.atasha A.lcindor has opened for various acts including Ghostface Killah, Big Sean and Nipsey Hussle, rocked at festivals including SXSW, Toronto's Manifesto, BK Hip Hop Festival, and SUNY's Culture Shock, and shined in Jay-Z's That's Rocawear" Campaign, MTV's "Sucker Free Sunday", MTV.com's "Get in the Game" and FuseTV's "Dollar Van Demos". She also has headlined a variety of shows from New York City to Toronto. With a perpetual growth, style and need for something new, A.lcindor has many familiarities to some of music greats including Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, KRS-One, M.I.A, Kanye West and Biggie. However, not one for comparison, L.atasha A.lcindor leads her future with the idea of "being yourself will take you where you need to be." Currently, L.atasha A.lcindor is working on several artistic projects from LPs,a film, a play and a tour but her focus is geared on creating her story, in hopes that it will inspire others around the hemispheres. L.atasha A.lcindor is excited to be a forefront in the balance of music for the generations to come.
