rebel soul...

originally coming out as part of the blackwatch movement (x-clan, professor x, queen mother rage, etc.), lin que dropped the rebel soul album under the name "isis." a couple of years later she resurfaced under her real name of lin que, forming a production company with mc lyte, and dropped these two singles in anticipation of a never-released album for columbia records. another couple of years later lin again resurfaced as a member of the put-together wu-tang-affiliated female-supergroup deadly venomz, but left the group shortly after they began (the other four members continuing on without her). she's now back again, and the new sounds pretty freakin' awesome (check out her myspace page for music and info). i did an interview with her a little while ago, which i'll be posting up sooner than later. in the meantime, check out these downloads. if you haven't her this woman rip, you're in for a surprise, she's a killer...
