Queen Earth, formerly known as Charlie Kelsey hit the underground scene 23 years ago with an aggressive flow and unique tone. After a 12 year hiatus, the New York native has returned and doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon. Earth’s lyricism mixes hood conscious messages, spirituality and topics including feminism, racism, parental alienation, child support and more. While her many songs, mixtapes and albums have not reached superstardom or major reviews, she still has an impact on a lot of the LGBTQ community, female rappers and peers in the hip hop community.
In her spare time, Earth advocates for the H.I.V/A.I.D.S. community and Mother’s Rights. Most recently she has been actively planning a concert to benefit Non-Custodial Mothers. She feels that the rise in mothers being separated from their children due to ex-relationships and family court systems is having a huge affect on the youth. All proceeds of her music have gone towards the benefit concert to help parents get the proper legal help to win back custody and be active in their children’s lives.
Rapping with effortless swag, Earth has contagious rhymes you can’t help but sway along to and her material is fun not only to listen to but memorize as well. Scheming with fluidity, you can coast on Earth’s every word no matter how fast or slow she rhymes.The seasoned emcee continues to build a stage for female rappers across the world to have fun, speak their mind and be “woke” all at the same time.
