Ruby Ibarra goes in on her new album CIRCA91

"We are taught to fear darkness, but ironically find solace in the shade..."
-Ruby Ibarra
For all the people unaware of the diversity in hip hop, Ruby Ibarra is another nice Filipino emcee for your rolodex.  Ibarra brought fellow GhettoManga Filipino favorites Bambu and Rocky Rivera along for the ride on CIRCA91, which guaranteed I would at least check it out.

Ruby is nice.  She is equally comfortable delivering traditional flows for old heads like me and triplets for the youngsters, but always with substance befitting her Beatrock bredren.  Social consciousness is a must for anyone trying to stay sane in America, and Ibarra holds it down for her intersectional identities, seen?
As my dude TRES said when he recommended it on Facebook, this is the kind of hip hop you want your kids to bump.  Socially conscious with no pretentiousness, well-constructed lyrically, with dope soulful beats that I think a kid could still get into (if you raising them right), CIRCA91 is a solid long player.  This 18 track record is a bargain at ten bucks.  CLICK HERE to cop it via bandcamp, or find Ruby Ibarra where ever you get dope music.
