Tasha The Amazon - Can't Control Us

  • Artist: Tasha the Amazon
  • Track: Can't Control Us
  • Producer: Bass and Bakery (Tasha the Amazon & Danthrax)
  • Album: DJBooth Freestyle Series (#37)

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars like Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller. Now, it's back for a second round.

The 37th entry in the relaunched series comes courtesy of Tasha the Amazon, the unsigned buzzmaker who brought us reader-acclaimed video single "Cry of the Warrior" earlier this year. On Can't Control Us, Tasha flexes her lyrical muscles over an original beat by Bass and Bakery, a production duo made up of herself and Danthrax. Fred Lozano provides original artwork to accompany the freestyle.

Tasha The Amazon is currently preparing to release her "first big-budget video," for current single "Thru the Fire." Keep it locked to the Booth for that clip, as well as anything else the artist may have coming down the pike.
