The Rhymes and Roses concert series represents Shakiah Danielson’s intention for Christian women to break through and be heard on the hip hop scene.

Similar to giving someone a rose, the series reflects her enduring passion to bring out the best burgeoning talent, including hers, to a local audience.

Captured on video spitting rhymes in an unexpected encounter for syndicated radio personality Sway of Sway in the Morning, Shakiah is no stranger to the stage and isn’t coy about her talent. A Seattle native, she built a name for herself in her hometown curating shows as seasoned choreographer and emcee, ripping the microphone delivering spirit-filled, lyrical rhymes. After decades of curating shows and bringing art to life in many venues across Washington State, her latest endeavor features an all-female lineup of emcees in her Rhymes and Roses cipher.

Featuring A.I. The Anomaly, God Over Money’s first female signee, B. Angelique, a Portland native and Aasha Marie out of Chicago, and herself, the 2nd installment of the Rhymes and Roses cipher intends to deliver brave women sharing testimonies of deliverance, salvation, and hope in raw unapologetic form.
