Villa Rosa

Since 2008, MARIA ISA and MUJA MESSIAH have released several tracks together including "Royalty" from Muja Messiah's 2008 release Adventures of BBoy DBoy, "Cruel and Unusual Punishment" off Muja Messiah's 2010 mixtape M-16's, and "Never Let Go" off Maria Isa's 2009 record Street Politics. There's a unique chemistry between the Latin firebrand MC, singer, actor, and activist Maria Isa and Muja Messiah, a veteran of the Minneapolis indie scene who brings a heavy dose of politically incorrect satire laced with humor and narratives of daily life.

With VILLA ROSA these two artists unite influenced by Spanish lyricism and Latino politicswith hardcore street smarts to a full circle. Villa Rosa's debut Blue Diamond Island was released in fall 2011 on Black Corners with production from Martin “Doc” McKinney (The Weeknd, Esthero), Benzilla, Mike The Martyr, and DJ Turtleneck. Blue Diamond Island finds the two MC's crafting a sprawling record influenced by Latins rhythms, reggae, left field pop based in hip-hop sensibility.
