Welcome to another great edition of Po Politickin. In this episode, we politick with Milwaukee, Wisconsin emcee Signif.
Signif is an uniquely talented emcee who chooses to channel the ART of Hip-Hop in her songs rather than the hype that surrounds the “prototype” of the female emcee. The New York resident, born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was first turned on to Hip-Hop by her older brothers. At age 8, her love for the music was explored through written expression and her poetic musings progressed to an active participation in Freestyling.
Starting in 2009 with Beautifully Flawed, an EP that would introduce her to the game as a viable artist, followed by The Transition in 2010,when people really started to take notice and recognize her as someone who could add something fresh to the Hip-Hop landscape. Helping to keep the ball rolling forward in 2010, she released a remix project as well as several clean and crisp music videos produced by Alphabang Productions. In 2011 and 2012, Signif released both Significant Wizdom and Significant Wizdom II: Atypical, respectively. After hitting off 2013 opening for Jean Grae and Pharoahe Monch, Signif recently returned from an international tour in France and is currently working on her 5th solo project, titled Friction.
