Emcee Dominique Larue & Maja 7th “SOON” Video / Single Release
With Grand on the horizon, Maja7th and Dominique Larue decided to release “Soon” as a teaser back in April 2013. It garnered great reviews from the majority of her listeners, and shooting a video for the song was necessary in response to their request. Larue linked with one of the USA’s best directors “Mario Hensley” who was able to bring #SOON to life with its colors and Larue’s ability to command the viewer’s attention. Stay tuned for more updates concerning #GRAND in the future.
Artist BIO: With skilled female MCs on what looks like an indefinite sabbatical; “it is time for a change” Ohio MC, Dominique Larue explains. Ms. Larue is definitely up for the challenge of filling the shoes of some of the all time greats. 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 early years she realized 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.” 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 made a name for herself 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 was involved in 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
