Tasha The Amazon dropped her Die Every Day EP & you need to hear it

Toronto, ONOriginally published Nov. 22, 2016 – Earlier this month Toronto artist Tasha The Amazon (who is now signed to The Windish Agency) dropped her monstrous debut EP titled Die Every Day.

The eight-track EP was entirely produced by Tasha and Danthrax (i.e.: the Bass & Bakery duo), and features singles “Picasso Leaning” (one of the best Canadian rap songs that dropped this year), “Prayer”, “Nowhere” (featuring RetcH), and “My Level.”

I was quick to hop on to the M.I.A. comparison when I first started listening to Tasha. Stylistically, a lot of her flows and the production she works with are very similar to what M.I.A has done over the years. But Tasha has a much darker edge to her craft.

She bodies this rebellious, aggressive, melodic style of rapping that can only be described as Tasha The Amazon. Lyrically, Tasha The Amazon is on some higher level. You listen to one of her songs and go “F**K! THAT BAR WAS HARD!” at least ten times.

The EP kicks off with “Picasso Leaning” before going into two new songs: “Watch It Burn” and “All Black.” The fourth track on the EP is the single “Prayer”, which serves as a sinister pseudo-religious offering from the outcasts and a mocking of what everyone thinks religion should be. Then Tasha teams up with RetcH for “Nowhere”, and wraps the EP with “My Level”, the title track “Die Every Day” (one of my favourites), and the grand finale track entitled “The World.”
