Muja Messiah & Maria Isa are Villa Rosa / MPLS / Sound Verite
13> Muja MessiahOrigin: Minneapolis | Active: 2000 - present | Songs: “Get Fresh, “Leech Lake,” and “Food”The stereotype that emo backpackers rule the Minnesota rap scene is challenged by one of the hardest spitters to ever ink Minneapolis on their neck. Muja Messiah’s brash early days with the firebrand group Raw Villa (“Minnesota started out on some old positive vibe; Villa was like the first fuck-you group,” says Muja in a 2000 interview) live on in his solo work and new group Villa Rosa, and his sense of style and blunt force have not dulled even as his profile rises. His critically-acclaimed 2008 album Thee Adventures of a B-Boy D-Boy remains a local classic, exemplary of the cocky charisma, real-talk political diatribes, and multifaceted street narratives that have set him apart in this scene and abroad. —Jack Spencer, City Pages
