WYXR Stereo Sessions: The Legend Lady J – “Glock N My Hand”
Join The Legend Lady J’s in a listening event celebrating her 1994 underground cassette “Glock N’ My Hand,” a gem of early Memphis rap.
The Legend Lady J’s “Glock N’ My Hand” isn’t emblematic of what was to come from Memphis rappers of its era. Instead, the cassette is a singular exercise in lo-fi instincts. Fans of an introspective rhyme clinic or slick, hard-hitting beats need not apply to this hip-hop affair. Instead, prepare yourself for something akin to the rap stylings of Tommy Wright III and DJ Spanish Fly meeting the ingenuity and do-it-yourself inclinations of Ata Kak and William Onyeabor.
