ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A lot of people still think girls can't rap," says veteran rapper/producer Ang13, one of the city's most respected MCs for the past decade.
M. McCormick "It's Reigning Women"
Chicago Tribune 2004>>>>>>>>

Angela "Ang13 (13)" Zone is a veteran in Hip-Hop. From the age of 13, when it all started for her, she has gone from break-dancer, to graffiti writer, to emcee / producer. 13 also knows her way around a pair of technique turntables so there is no aspect of Hip- Hop that she does not know. Music is her forte and where she reigns supreme. Over the years, she has received her training in the culture through practice and execution. 13 still keeps her hand in every aspect of Hip-Hop, but music is the area in which she is most creative.>>>>>>>>>>

She's received accolades in magazines such as "The Source" being named one of the undergrounds "best kept secretes" and countless write-ups in The Chicago Tribune, ("Reigning Women in Hip- Hop", M. McCormick) "Midwest Rap Gap" Upski Wimsap, "Hip Hop for Hunger", D. Jakubiak), The Chicago Sun-Times, Caught in the Middle Magazine, Humble Quest, Route 2000, The Chicago Defender, The Reader, and Chi-Rock Magazine. She is one of the most respected icons in Mid West Hip Hop, dubbed a legend. Her music has graced such project as, The 2000 Census, Nike Mix CD, Sprite Mix Tape, Chicago Rocks, The 50 Man Cipher(Rec Center), Chicago vs. New York along with her own solo EP "Phat as Yo' Mama" which sold 7,000 in one month. Currently, 13's music is featured on the Jurassic 5 "Power in Numbers" DVD (Interscope), and her single "Oh No" is featured on Chali2na's (J5) "Fish Market Mix CD" (2004).>>>>>>>>

13 takes the direct approach in her lyrical subject matter. Growing up in the streets of Chicago, she has been able to speak the language of the streets with the intelligence of a scholar. Some of her early influences were MC's such as KRS one, Nas, Master Ace, Latifah, Rakim, and Lauren Hill. Studying these masterminds has given 13 the ability to speak to the masses. She has an East-Coast tough, innovative style though the West-Coast and over seas consumed majority of her solo EP. She nothing like the "average female mc" reciting rhymes about: designer brands, raunchy sex, and taking a man's money. Her lyrical content is more intelligent and up lifting without being preachy, with an edge. 13's play on words is so clever that she is able to reach consumers from the streets to Wall Street. Teamed up with renown DJ/Beatmaker Ray" DJ XRay" King III (producer of the opening single from The Balance Ep "Me and Mine"), they are the illest elements in the game.>>>>>>>>

U GO GIRL
Original, tight and crisp, all U need is a deal. Chit-town!!!!!!!!

REIGN MAGAZINE (GPIA)

Well Balanced Diet
Ang13 Brings it hard like the UFC with this one. The 1st thing you notice about Ang is how she gets right off into a track without any interlude/filler material. Her rhymes are metaphor laced with a street-wise twist. She declares such lines as a "You're a Sandwich I'm a WoManwich" on the first track "Me & Mine"...lol. DJ X-Ray hit her with a B-Girl anthem on that one I must say. Check out the whole 'EP...It's worth every cent of common sense. True Hip Hop!

Papa Doc

Just what I expected!!!
Ang 13 is of the foundation of Chicago Hip Hop and this CD is proof that she's goin far! Since the days of Steppes and still rockin!

The girl was bad in 1990. She can rap her ass of...for a girl? Hell no. SHE CAN RAP HER ASS OFF. The real deal freestyling, MC'ing on ill beats since I met her and she still does her thing today. I feel lucky to have someone with talent like Ang's in my music collection.

ray sytes

crazy flow and skills
yo, this girl is off the chain. Entertaining and hood at the same time. Only regret is that there's only 6 joints to listen to, I want to hear more.

The CD is hot! Don't sleep people...ya'll need to cop this and listen. It's been in steady rotation since I got it a few weeks back 'n looks like it'll be stayin there for a long time. Def. wish there was more tracks though...my ears are needin more. ANG13's comin up tho and The Balance is proof of that.

I really hate yall milleneedem muthafuckz that slept. Tell em ANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

LUNATIC The Messiah

Is today's Hip-Hop ready for the raw power of Ang?
Probably not! This CD proves that Ang13 possesses the skills to become a power to be reckoned with in this male-dominated industry. With street-hard verbal acrobatics and very versatile adaptability, Ang rides beats like not many emcees are capable of. If you think the wordplay is a joke or the estrogen isn't gonna be able to compete with the testosterone, you'd better THINK AGAIN! Get 'em Ang!!!

Much love baby,
LUNATIC
