Gorgeous Goddess, Bosstown

Gorgeous Goddess, Bosstown

She calls her unique style of music Fem Rap, because in her words, “Feminism is for everyone.”

I don’t have an ear for rap music, but I do have an eye for character and Gorgeous Goddess, Bosstown (GGB) is just that – a charming young woman with an excellent singing voice, a great character, and the beats to go with.

She calls her unique style of music Fem Rap, because in her words, “Feminism is for everyone.”

GGB grew up listening to rap music, but only in secret. She was raised on a strict evangelical compound in San Diego, CA and recently discovered that her father may be a racist. So what is a creative, intelligent, quirky young lass to do? Hightail it to Boston where (once in the very recent past), nonconformists come to find refuge and comfort in a city that is/was conducive to the artistic rebel soul.

I first encountered GGB performing at the Lilypad in Inman Square. Her on stage presence is intriguingly demure, mysterious, and cutting edge. It is well apparent that she is a messenger of her time. Her lyrics are crafty exposes, and she presents them with the penetrating elusiveness of a manifested goddess.
