To quote Vox, "She likes the play she’s written about a couple living in Harlem, but to get it produced she’ll have to change it to align with a prominent white producer’s ideas about what a play should be — and her exasperations drive her to a (hilarious) breaking point that seems to scuttle her future chances of ever getting a play on stage again. Bereft, but exhilarated, she has an epiphany: She’s going to try becoming a hip-hop performer instead." Her rap moniker is RadhaMUSPrime, and along with the premiere of the show comes this new song which finds RadhaMUSPrime joined by some actual New York rap greats.
