Crane City Music is thrilled to release Renaissance Bitch by Seattle’s Da Qween on limited-edition, colored vinyl. Da Qween—a self-described reefer-smoking, black, queer, non-binary, hard femme—delivers bars upon bars that will bury your favorite rapper. Look no further than “When Worst Comes To Worst,” the second track on Renaissance Bitch. It’s three-and-a-half minutes of unrelenting, baller verses with nary a breath. (Except for two brief moments during which the tune—and your attention—are held in stasis.) Seattle Met described the record as “coming in hot.” Renaissance is an expansive, ambitious, and theatrical listen that will easily prove to be one of your favorites of the year.
