A rising rap star

"the late mc trouble was multitalented.she was a very good singer . she combined the singing with her raps on this under-rated ,overlooked and forgotten album.she would have had success had she not suddenly died.ive always wondered how her counterparts from the west coast and the female rappers of that era regarded her then as well as now"
Motown's First Female Rapper

"MC Trouble will either be remembered as Motown's first female rapper, or as the female rapper that tragically died during an epileptic seizure in 1991. Her story is one of the most heartbreaking in the history of rap. Born LaTasha Sheron Rogers, she struck the charts very soon after her signing with Motown, with "(I Wanna) Make You Mine" which became a hit in 1990. Although not in a class with Queen Latifah or MC Lyte, she seemed headed for a promising career. Motown records seemed to have been strong supporters for MC Trouble; a record label that was extremely weak in the genre of rap, and focused on her to change all that. With producers Full Force (among many others) behind the mixing board, her lone full-length, Gotta Get a Grip, did farely well on the charts. Whether it's commercial, R&B-ish material or hardcore rap the aggressive MC shows she has solid rhyming skills. Her passing made a huge impact on the hip-hop scene, and she earned many shoutouts from A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip, respected Compton rapper Toddy Tee, and Nefertiti ("Trouble in Paradise" was dedicated to her)."
