Brynne Crockett, better known as BdotCroc, began rapping at the age of eight. She may be twenty seven years old now, but she has already performed alongside the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Big K.R.I.T., Kendrick Lamar, and Macklemore, and has opened up for Da Brat, Iggy Azalea, Raekwon, and Dead Prez just to name a few. She is continuously releasing new music and does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
Crockett was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and has been recording and releasing music ever since she graduated from high school in 2008. When she was 12 years old, she began freestyling against other kids from her school in the lunch room, and never lost a single battle. With rapid-fire delivery, intense wordplay and lyricism, and a calm and humble demeanor, she was easily able to catch her opponents off guard.
I can’t remember how I personally came across BdotCroc, but I remember the first song of hers I ever heard. Released in 2011, it was called “I Want More”, and a music video was shot for the song. What immediately caught my eye about BdotCroc was her poetical skills, and, up to that point, I don’t think I had ever seen such raw talent from a female MC before. I mean, sure, there were already several female rappers in the game, but besides maybe Lauryn Hill, I didn’t really know of any female MCs who were actual poets.
Recently, BdotCroc relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to further her music career in the de facto capital of hip hop. She also recently made an appearance at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. To date, she has released a number of projects, and her latest album, “Show & Tell”, released in 2015, as well as a new single called “One Day” are available for download on iTunes.
