The Sorority- "Wildin'" ( Indie): The world of hip-hop remains strongly male-dominated, but these four female MCs from Toronto are aiming to shake the patriarchy.

The group's debut album, Pledge, has been well-received, and this just-released third single and new video deserves heavy action.

Keysha Freshh, Haviah Mighty, Phoenix Pagliacci and Lex Leosis got together at a freestyle jam session on International Women’s Day two years ago, and word of their chemistry spread (hip-hop legend Michie Mee quickly lent encouragement). Released a few months ago, the group's debut album, Pledge, has been well-received, and this just-released third single and new video should spread the word further.


"Wildin'" begins as an R&B groove, then the four take turns laying down rhymes, all with an easy flow, while the catchy hook recurs. The Sorority state that "the cut flips the script on relationships," for here it is the ladies calling the shots over guys who want more of a commitment. Sample lyric: "I wanna get freaky with you, not fall in love."

In an interview with NOW, Pagliacci declared “We’re gonna make a lot of people uncomfortable – no good change comes from any comfort. We’re going to rock worlds and rock stages." Don't be surprised if The Sorority does just that.

Upcoming shows include the Up Here Fest in Sudbury on Aug. 17 and Riverfest in Elora, Aug. 18.

I wanted the freedom to go out and live my life.”
