about

Paying homage to the pioneer women in rap that paved the way, Lozen builds on this foundation while showcasing homegrown Canadian femcees raising the bar with “Ladies World (feat. Skulastic & Benzosa)”. Don’t get it twisted though. Yes, the sisterhood is real but so are its male allies. Produced by Vago, funky guitar laden riffs meld together effortlessly with the unique rhyming flavour each artist brings to the table. The track is paired with an official music video where viewers are taken on a VHS style journey back to the 90s with a spoof of comedy cult classic "Wayne's World", shot and directed by Alivia Nadeau. Offbeat humor, awkward sentiment, snappy lyrics, and frequent hip hop culture references set the mood for this anthem, an offering from Lozen's album — 𝘎𝘰𝘢𝘭 𝘋𝘪𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘳 — out now on Soul Path Records.

lyrics

Verse 1 - Skulastic :

You know them
Flamboyant yet modest
Rocking many hats
And making it seem flawless
Clocking two jobs posted up in the office
But in the meantime their spitting that conscious
And the witty, obnoxious and the gritty
Dressed down, giving pound on stage looking spiffy
So props to my ladies that show a little skin
Just ‘cause I don’t rock it
Don’t mean it ain’t expression
It’s a blessing
Every dope female I’m exposed to
Main stream or local
It’s added to my focal, point of view
That’s what it boils down to
Baby girl don’t even let them haters surround you
You got this, head to the sky, keep going
Shouts to Benzoza, emcee Lozen
You know them
Content and confident
In my books either you genuine
Or you fraudulent

Chorus - Lozen:

Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Baby girls, who change the world

Verse 2 – Benzoza:

This one goes out to
Le Chat and Yoyo
Da Brat reppin for SoSo
With the braids love you swag
But you already know tho
I was rapping ‘Put In On Me”
Charlie Baltimore and Vita
And we all kept it sexy
For some Jackie O and Trina
Magnolia shorty, I heard your story
Almost cried
Prevail told me
That I remind him of emcee Lyte
I was honored with those afro puffs
Lady of Rage
We’d be in one spot
Without the roads ya’ll paid
This is just to let you know
That I could never forget
How you hit the industry
And showed the men we a threat
Without the moves ya’ll made
How can anyone show me love
Mia X, Angie Martinez and Monie Love
You made em look again
When they looked at women as weak
Like Amil from Roc-A-Fella
Or Shauna from DTP
Or Khia when she was yelling out
My neck and my back
Ya’ll picked up the mic
Taught us a lesson in rap

Chorus - Lozen:

Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Baby girls, who change the world

Verse 3 – Lozen:

This is one for my ladies
Queens, leading the pack
Stand up and give props
To the women in rap
Salt n Peppa made me ‘shoop’
And push it to another level
While Missy got her ‘freak on’
E-V-E lip locked the treble
Foxy brown
Firm Biz, Ill Na Na
Flipmode Squad
Reppin real Rah Digga
Roxanne Shanté
Battle wars fourteen
Making answer record history
Shaping the scene
*scratch* I feel a movement
Here to stay
Sisters round the world leaving a mark
Pressed in vinyl let the record play
MIA, TLC
Girls
Santigold ‘Say Aha’
Girls
Floetry ‘Floetic’
Floacism and flo'ology
Poets, spoken word
Compositions methodology
Miss Lauryn Hill
Ooh la la la ‘Miseducation’
Paving the way
For femcees vibration

Chorus- Lozen:

Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Ladies
This one for my, this one, this one for my
Baby girls, who change the world

about

Lozen Vancouver, British Columbia

Lozen isn’t much for boxes — which are commonplace in the music world — because “magic happens outside of your comfort zone” says the Quebecer (real name Meaghan Mullaly). The now BC-based singer-songwriter-bandleader goes way beyond classification with a mixed bag of genre-bending offerings from trippy R&B, and jazz-infused ballads, to golden-era style hip-hop and dirty electronic bass. ... more
