Before Nicki Minaj, there was Vita

Friday, December 18, 2009

Few new hip-hop heads today have heard of LaVita Raynor, but the rapper better known as Vita, from Murder Inc., used to kill mics and was considered the heiress apparent to the lady rap throne.
The Bermuda beauty had a sibling, Kima, in the Bad Boy group Total.
Like so many of the other artists associated with Irv Gotti this decade (remember Charlie Baltimore?), Vita has fallen off the map.
Vita's long-awaited album, which was due to be released in 2001, has still languished nearly a decade in what's left of Murder Inc.'s decrepit database of beats and rhymes.
When you look at Michael Jordan's greatness, it must be viewed against the people that kept him sharp, his competition. Same is true with the female rap game; when you look at the greatest of a Lil Kim or Foxy Brown, it must be viewed through the competition of female emcees that raised the bar for the them.
Vita raised the bar.

Check out Vita kill the first verse of Ja Rule's "Holla Holla" remix.

@MilanDemblackz, What? Oh no! Vita was the hottest "other" chick in the game for a brief second. She just went away somewhere, in Jersey, I've heard. yeah, she was ill.
