Jessy Moss is an unusual player on the hip-hop landscape.
(CNN) -- Jessy Moss is an unusual player on the hip-hop landscape. She's a white female rapper/singer from Byron Bay, Australia.

The 6-foot-tall blonde takes an autobiographical approach to her music, writing about her father's struggle to raise four daughters with little money and the trouble she got into growing up.

Her debut album, "Street Knuckles,"
Moss knows she's navigating uncharted territory but hopes her music will speak for itself.

“This record is kind of about retribution and forgiveness,” then laughs and says
Asked to comment on the themes of Street Knuckles, Jessy Moss reflects: “This record is kind of about retribution and forgiveness,” then laughs and says, “and sometimes more about retribution than forgiveness!”

But Jessy also figures anyone singled out for retribution should be able to handle it. Shit happens, and it’s happened to her, but that’s not the point.

“People are more resilient than they make out,” she says. “I feel a lot of songwriters do this ‘poor me, and yeah, this is therapy’ thing, that whole cry for sympathy. I hope my tracks aren’t misconstrued as a big sulk about hardships – another person having a fucking whinge – because when you’re being autobiographical, you run that risk. But I believe we can handle whatever people dish out. We can. Just deal and get on with it.”

The composition of her debut album extends this no-nonsense outlook. The title’s surface meaning suggests the urban edge that powers much of the album; but, she explains, a “knuckle” is “a little something, a little gem, a little story.” Each song on the disc is “just something that happened, andso I write about it,” Jessy says. “I’m not trying to change the world or make any profound statement about injustices, because they exist for a reason. Who would want to take away the hardships? Without ’em, it would all be so shit-boring.”

anything this young woman creates will be a masterpiece
I have the album and this is particular one has turned into one of my favorites in a long time, her lyrics speak to me they are deep and tell it how it is. Her voice is incredible with her melodies, and her speed in the rapping still amazes me. My personal favorite songs are "Pick the Card", "I'll Manage", and "Telling You Know" which surely be hits. Be sure to catch this album and consider yourself lucky to be able to listen to this album, or anything this young woman creates because it will be a masterpiece that is for sure. One of the reasons she makes me proud to be called her fan.
