LisaMarie Rollins and Vylma V TALK TO OAKLAND RAPPER MADLINES ABOUT HER NEW EP "WORdPLAY". DRAWING ON HER JAMACIAN ROOTS AND BLENDING OLD AND NEW SCHOOL STYLES MADLINES EMPOWERS WOMEN WITH HER COMMITMENT TO HER ARTISTRY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE.
MADlines music draws from an arsenal of influences, her Jamaican roots, Seattle upbringing and experiences teaching at-risk youth in the Bay Area. MADlines effortlessly blends old and new school lyrical styles and sounds. With her commitment to both artistry and social justice MADlines can be found facilitating creative writing classes for incarcerated teens in San Francisco at the Juvenile Justice Center. MADlines new EP WORD PLAY weaves together a unique blend of instrumentals from old favorites like BeanOne (who produced MADlines’ last project, Love Child) as well as Bay Area locals: DJ Pharoahgahmoe, Big Tunes and Phillip Drummond. The result is a diverse musical journey—from Old School Hip Hop, to Reggae Roots and even Trap.
