Dominique Larue & Maja 7th Video / Single Release

With Grand on the horizon, Maja7th and Dominique Larue decided to release “Soon” as a teaser back in April and after garnering great reviews, shooting a video for the song was necessary. Larue then linked with director Mario Hensley who was able to bring #SOON to life with its colors and Larue’s ability to command the viewers attention.

Greats, such as Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill, and MC Lyte, all women who have shown time and time again to be competent representation for women in Hip-Hop.

Born and bred on the north side of Columbus, Ohio, Larue was greatly influenced by Gospel and R&B, but it was her older brother who introduced her to Hip Hop. Firm favorites of Larue’s included A Tribe Called Quest, Fugees, Outkast, Def Squad, and Busta Rhymes and it was in her elementary years that she realized just how influential her brothers music had actually been.Encouraged by a school friend at the tender age of 7, Larue made her first attempt at writing a rhyme. “I will never forget that day because it was the first day of the rest of my life.” And although Larue does not remember the song she and her friend wrote, if it hadn‟t been for that song, she wouldn’t be rapping today.

Through freestyling, Larue began to make a name for herself and at 12 she knew she was going to make a career out of her passion. Riding with the moniker Intalekt and as the only female MC in High School, Larue made sure she was in the midst of any battle or cipher. “I cherished the cipher at the lunch table because I was giving everyone a dose of what I can do and I was representing for the ladies.” …read more
