Neila-Vertical Trees With Eternal Leaves(2003)
Emmerging from the talented life-spring of Los Angeles hip-hop artists is the Hawaii born lyricist Neila (Pronounced: Nay-La). In the midst of a culture clearly dominated by patriarchal poetry stands a female who is confident with her intensely personal lyrical content and straight up storytelling abilities. Her first full length album, "Vertical Trees with Eternal Leaves"(2003) is a testament to Neila's ability to run with the best of them as all sixteen tracks meld into one anticipatory breath that will definitely stand as a solid starting point for a career that is sure to become extremely prolific.
