Njeri Earth is not just another rapper; her lyrics are power packed thought provoking bombs to bob your head to. The June 1999 release of Wu Tang Clansman GZA/Genius’ album, Beneath the Surface, marked Njeri’s formal induction into the Hip Hop world. She co-wrote and performed on back to back tracks, “1112” and “Victim,” holding her own with veteran rappers. In August 1999 she performed on the Detroit leg of GZA’s “Beneath the Surface” tour.
