Sister Souljah Biography

Sister Souljah Biography

She appeared on several tracks as a featured guest with the hip-hop group Public Enemy, and she became a full member of the group when Professor Griff left the group after allegedly making anti-Semitic remarks. In 1992, she released her only solo album, 360 Degrees of Power. Both of her videos, "The Final Solution: Slavery's Back in Effect" and "The Hate that Hate Produced," were banned by MTV. Her album sold only 27,000 copies, and so her label, Epic/SME Records, dropped her. It is believed that the album sold poorly due to public backlash from her comments in response to the beating of Rodney King, but it also received terrible reviews in the music press.

Souljah became infamous for her statements that year about the 1992 Los Angeles riots. In an interview conducted May 13, 1992, she was quoted in the Washington Post as saying:
“     “If Black people kill Black people every day, why not have a week and kill white people?”     ”

The quote was later reproduced without the context of the complete interview,and she was widely criticized in the media. Presidential candidate Bill Clinton publicly criticized that statement—and Jesse Jackson for allowing her to be on his Rainbow Coalition—thus the Sister Souljah moment was created.
