Rah Digga has long cemented her position as one of the best female rappers of all time, rising to prominence as part of New Jersey crew, The Outsidaz and Busta Rhymes‘ Flipmode Squad. Shifting gears somewhat, Digga has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for a community dance center in her native Newark.
Digga, born Rashia Fisher, launched the campaign last week with the goal of funding the NJ Dance Network facility in downtown Newark. With the building already purchased and Digga promising the location will be renovated sometime in October, the Kickstarter campaign is an additional push for funds to help with producing videos for an upcoming EP and a stage production.
From The NJ Dance Network Kickstarter page:
“The Dance Network” is a facility that will be located in the heart of Downtown Newark, New Jersey. I, Rah Digga, have obtained a lease for one of SEVERAL abandoned spaces in Newark and with the help of countless community members; we will have the place completely renovated in 30 days.
The goal is to develop full-scale dance recitals, theatrical productions to be performed in our city, and basically act as a stomping ground to deter talented kids from getting into trouble with their idle time.
Rah Digga will also be releasing a new EP titled Hood House: So Jersey, along with a producing a DVD featuring videos and dancers from the NJ Dance Network. Also mentioned in the campaign is Digga’s goal of doing a stage production remake of the classic Hip-Hop film, Breakin’.
