A progressive, conscious hip-hop album, Mothership is a one-woman coup d'état on the music industry's dominant paradigm of empty-headed beauty and vacuous lyrics. With hooks like, "Why we cuttin' down the trees? We need air to breathe!!" Mothership blends pure emotion with critical intellect. Layers of instrumentation put together by a gamut of Denver's finest upcoming producers prove that the Wild West has some hidden talent goldmines! Along with Basheba Earth's lyrical tirades, her sultry yet fierce voice, and her tender heart for the suffering of the planet and it's people, Mothership exposes Miss Earth as a spiritual artist with the power to heal as many as her dynamic music can reach. With the urgency of Dead Prez and the finesse of Lauren Hill, BaSheBa unleashes a positive message that permeates the entire album. Expressing her political views on the blazin' BLADEZ OF TONGUE featuring the unparalleled Chuck D., the Galaktik Godess reveals the next generation's intolerance of widespread pharmaceutical drug use and government propaganda. Using that undeniable feminine energy, Ba is reminiscent of poets like Sonya Sanchez and Ursula Rucker on Mothership's MIXED and LIL' WHITE MAMA, two pieces drawn from Earth's multi-cultural experience. In GALAKTIK LUV and JUST A THUG, BaSheBa speaks to the men out there. And while this honey don't take no mess, her sweetness still comes through in her cuts for the fellas, which blend hard-core beats with the message that real women are to be cherished and real men deserve respect. A lyrical lioness on THE UNXPEKTED and GHETTO EMPRESS, we hear the rising star flex her street-chic vocabulary and roar rapid-fire lines. Then, watch out on UNINSTALL, as She pulls out her acoustic guitar and gets str8 Tracey Chapman on us! The Earth' s passion and musicality encompass all of these diverse tones, and in Mothership they coalesce into an album that moves both the body and the psyche of the listener. BaSheBa is an artist on a mission. And, in a refreshing departure from much of today's popular music, her goal is to transport her listeners to a place where we all envision a better world together. Those with a love of life and a thirst for good music are destined to be bumping the celebrated Basheba Earth for as long as she graces this galaxy.
