Biography

Rah Digga (born Rashia Fisher in Newark, New Jersey in December 12, 1972) is an American rapper. A member of the Flipmode Squad, a hip hop crew led by Busta Rhymes, she is one of modern hip hop’s most respected female artists.

A New Jersey native, Rah Digga attended private school in Maryland where she graduated as salutatorian, then studied electrical engineering at the New Jersey Institute Of Technology. She started rapping after being inspired by artists of hip hop’s “golden age” such as Rakim, Kool G. Rap and Queen Latifah, eventually joining the group Twice the Flavor and then Jersey’s Outsidaz clique. A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip negotiated her a deal with Elektra Records after being impressed by a performance at New York City’s Lyricist Lounge (at which time Digga was eight months pregnant). Q-Tip also introduced her to Busta Rhymes, who invited her to join his newly-formed Flipmode Squad crew. The deal with Elektra soon collapsed however and Digga signed to Flipmode Entertainment. She made guest appearanes on Busta’s 1997 album When Disaster Strikes as well as the Lyricist Lounge, Vol. 1 compilation (on the track “Be OK”, a two-hander with Bahamadia), the first installment of the Hip Hop For Respect anti-police brutality project in memory of Amadou Diallo, and the Fugees track “Cowboys”, before joining up with the Flipmode Squad for The Imperial Album (1998). Anticipation mounted for further output, and she recorded tracks with legendary producers Pete Rock and DJ Premier.
