Ursula Rucker – Ma’at Mama (release date Jan 30th)
Ursula Rucker, Philadelphia´s Queen of Spoken-Word-Poetry, is back with her third album.
With “Ma´at Mama” (named after an ancient Egyptian kemetic principle, the foundation of universal order and balance), Ursula shows a new level of maturity in her writing. “Ma´at Mama” is pure poetry, sensuality and poignant social criticism, uniquely blending Hip Hop and Funk with sparse beats.
