Born in Rhode Island, and raised in both Stockholm, Sweden and Bushwick Brooklyn, it’s no wonder why this worldy MC Mapei has found her voice in a combination of Hip-Hop, pop, electronica, and R&B. Recently signed to Downtown Records (Santigold, Amanda Blank, Kid Sister) Mapei is about to be part of the blossoming one-woman-music revolution. In her bio featured on Downtown Records she says:
-“I’m looking to create a new way of doing soul.”
And from what she has delivered, it’s a twist on soul indeed. Mapei has worked with Philly MC Spank Rock, Paris’s DJ Mehdi, and UK’s Switch. Word is they will be adding their magic to her album, set to drop this fall, but until then you can check out Mapei’s digital EP The Cocoa Butter Diaries now availble on iTunes.
