Like the explorers who devoted their lives to finding El Dorado or the Fountain of Youth, musical artists have have spent decades questing after that perfect combination of hip-hop and rock ‘n’ roll—with results ranging from the disastrous, to the pretty damn decent. The latest artist to be tempted by the glittering allure of crossover success, Divinity Roxx introduces us to a little something she calls Ghetto Rock on her Booth debut and latest single. Here, the ATL buzzmaker does double duty on the mic and behind the boards, delivering risqué, engagingly-flowed verses and an Autotune-drenched chorus over her own crunchy electric-guitar riffs and syncopated percussion. Fresh off the release of his and El-P‘s R.A.P. Music album, Killer Mike grabs the mic to name-drop a few of his favorite rockers on the back end. Is this hip-rock hopeful’s genre-blending concoction a recipe for success? If you’re leaning toward the affirmative, you can look forward to the full Roxx Boxx Experience this October, when Divinity’s latest project hits eardrums worldwide.
