Shira Girls Rock/Hip Hop Musical Explosion

I've always been a fan of hip-hop music. It's something that's surrounded my world since I was a little kid. It was almost all I knew in music until I got older and discovered the many awesome forms of music like R&B, pop, and of course rock. But all these genres were always so separated. They were like high school cliques that stayed far away from each other as their fans mainly stuck to genres only similar to each other afraid to merge. Yet, groups like Linkin Park, Jay Z, No Doubt, Aerosmith and others decided to break these barriers and create musical harmony for all.

And the musical collaborations didn't stop there. The Shira Girls, a rock and hip hop all girl group, has awesome tunes that has a real edgy vibe that reminded me of groups like Green Day and Good Charolette. But wow, they were rapping on a hot flow in their songs “Roll with the Crew” and “Reckless.” Yo, these head banging tunes were tempting my feet to run to the nearest drum set so I can bang out to their vivacious sound. (BTW, I'm not a drummer. But who wouldn't want to be one?) “Roll with the Crew” was a favorite for me. It pulled out my inner rocker as I threw my hands up in the air and rocked my shoulders back and forth to their hardcore sound.

The unique musical creation of these girls truly made my heart hyper. I almost felt like a kid again as I experienced another musical discovery for the night. I just want to "go, go, go" further into the realms of this punked out and swagger formed entity called Shira Girl and explore the wonders of genres working together one more time.
