Music Meets Racial Profiling – Word-Soul Artist ‘LadyBoss-Amanishakhete’ teams with Portland Hip Hop Producer Anuff
PORTLAND, Ore. (MuseWire) – The Trayvon Martin murder amid racial profiling and stand-your-ground, taunting black males daily has inspired one word-soul artist to speak out. This travesty amid today’s hate-based politics inspired the release of LadyBoss Amanishakhete’s new single: “Murder 2012,” produced with Portland Hip Hop Artist Anuff.
LadyBoss, who recently added the name “Amanishakhete” (A-ma-ni-sha-kete) to her stage persona, says that “Murder 2012” is bold with music and lyrics guaranteed to stir up a variety of emotions. Boss explains that while recording her vocals for the song, she felt enrage as well as sadness.
“This song could be considered controversial and may even anger people,” says Boss. “But the truth I speak through my lyrics need to be at the top of everyone’s mind.”
LadyBoss produced “Murder 2012” in cooperation with Anuff who composed the music. Anuff also composed the music and co-wrote the lyrics for Boss’s 2011 album “Epiphany of Lady,” currently being sold online at CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon.com, Amazon MP3, Last.fm and other major online retailers. As of May 1, Murder 2012 will also be downloadable from CD Baby (http://cdbaby.com/cd/ladybossamanishakhete) and soon at iTunes and other online retailers.
“People should definitely buy a copy as a reminder of Trayvon and all the issues that have come up,” says Hip Hop Artist Anuff. “Murder 2012 will cause you to think.”

About LadyBoss LLC:
Established in 2011, LadyBoss LLC is a limited liability company that represents the LadyBoss-Amanishakhete (A-ma-ni-sha-kete) brand. LadyBoss added the stage persona Amanishakhete, a name that is synonymous with the Nubian Queen Amanishakheto – which means motherhood of beauty and love – who ruled Nubia from 10 BC to 1 AD. Queen Amanishakheto was known as a great warrior and woman of great wealth.
LadyBoss, who sees herself as a warrior for humanity, recently redefined the term Boss (for herself) to mean ruler of oneself rather than in the traditional sense. Essentially, LadyBoss-Amanishakhete defines her name to mean “ruler of oneself through beauty and love.” Such is the mission of LadyBoss LLC which is to “Inspire humanity through the heart and soul of a woman.”
