With three albums, eight music videos, international bookings and countless
media appearances under her belt, Masia found herself courted by Warner
Chapel Sweden and Grammy-winning Aftermath producer Che Vicious
(Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, 50 Cent, Kanye West) to work on a new record together.
Vicious notes, “I immediately recognized the talent Masia possessed, she is
much more than an emcee – her chatting abilities and the reggae styles that
she’s capable of doing… To me, it didn’t matter if she was a girl or Asian, she
brought something that I found more interesting to the table.”
BOOTLEG CULTURE features collaborations with artists such as Wu Tang’s The RZA, Thunderheist’s Isis Salam, Uh Huh Her’s Cammy and Idle Warship’s Graph Nobel (Black Molly). The first single Warriors Tongue, attracted a lot of attention from blogs and DJ’s around the world. The follow up video, Number One, shot in Jamaica by renown New York director and celebrity photographer Jason G Lewis (Nylon, Alife, MTV) was released in September.
