Former Poli Sci Major Turns Into Japanese Girl-Rapper

TOKYO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Here’s more proof that American pop culture is “Turning Japanese”: The next big pop thing is the world’s first female “Japanese- baile-funk-crunk” rapper.

Her name is “Tigarah” and here’s the kicker: She’s not down from the ghettos of Tokyo. She’s actually a self-described “guilty, private-school educated” gal with a degree in Political Science.

She started her Roppongi rap just recently, mainly because it provided more opportunity for career advancement.

As she puts it, “I was always interested in injustice; but when I found out what people with a political science degree do for a living, I thought a better way to help people would be by making music.”

So far, Tigarah hasn’t used her political education as a source for her lyrics, but she’s working on it.

In her words, “Some of my [interests] are culture and globalization, so I will write about those as a message soon.”
