Latasha Alcindor, also informally addressed as "LA,"  is an independent music and visual artist based out of New York City.

It isn't usual to see this style pop out, delivered in such a pure, raw form. Latasha Alcindor represents new-age Hip-Hop and spoken word in ways that we were not expecting at first.  Her project, an album titled B(LA)K should be one of the current most anticipated underground releases from an independent female artist artist. 

I choose to dedicate this project to Black Womanhood, my experience of growing up in Brooklyn and my boyfriend -- who passed away after becoming a victim of gun violence. 

B(LA)K, an unmixed, unmastered soliloquy, takes you on a rollercoaster ride through the rapper’s deep-rooted Brooklyn history. True stories of love, anguish and survival are found throughout the 16-track offering, as the rapper attacks textured instrumentals with her signature, bar-laden delivery. The project, four years in the making, has been a passion piece for Latasha since its conception -- but only now has it felt ready for wide release. Playing by her own rules, L.A.’s free, unmixed and unmastered bedroom bombshell is a leap of faith and an ode to the artist’s need to follow their own heart -- a truth that will resonate with listeners across the world.
