Dancing isn’t the only field where Abiss has all the right moves in! Music seems to be her alleyway, and the messages she promotes seems to be her niche. The release of her record “Superstarr” promoted the idea of spreading love and being whoever you want to be in life. I loved this because it took us back into a time where hip-hop actually discussed positivity and created lyrics with substantial meaning. For this reason, I embraced “Superstarr” and appreciated the motive of the track. “Superstarr” not only had encouraging morals to it, but the record also had an undeniable magnetic force to the beat that gets its listener dancing. Who doesn’t love a good jam with a good meaning? Abiss TheLyricist brings real, feel-good music back with “Superstarr” and it’s much needed in this current cycle of hip-hop. No telling what this young superstar has up her sleeve as she continues to rock the house with not only her breaking moves but her sensational sounds!
