TRAP LIBERATION ARMY: THE LATEST IN REVOLUTION
Ebony "Sima Lee" Outlaw was born and raised in Norfolk,Virginia and currently resides in Washington, DC. She has been involved in international, national and local liberation movements and human rights advocacy for over 20 years individually, and with groups such as Occupy The Hood, Uhuru Movement and Autonomous Black Panther units in Virginia and DC.
She is currently a member of the activist-artist collective "The Peace House" and Founder of the grassroots organization "Food, Clothing & Resistance Collective". Sima Lee is a seasoned Hip-Hop/Spoken Word artist and songwriter and uses her culture to benefit the struggle.
While working with U.K. producer Endemic she was featured on mixtapes featurning artists such as Sean Price, Killah Priest, Hell Razah, Planet Asia and Kevlar 7 on the “Terminal Illness Vol. 1” Mixtape, as well as the Wu Tang Corp Vol. 1 “Deadly Venoms” Mixtape featuring her classic track “Trust Nobody” produced by European producer AZA. Sima aka “Eye M. Woman” has been a part of the Hip-Hop/Soul duo “No Assumptionz”, the “Lyricist Project” crew and Hip-Hop/Spoken Word duo "Sankofa Griottes" to name a few.
She is currently working on her latest album “The Return of Eye M. Woman” after a hiatus from the studio. Her goal is to inspire a new generation of artists and future freedom fighters.
Trap Liberation Army is the first taste from a collection of EP's exploring the many sides of a veteran lyricist & radical activist residing and rebelling in DC (Food, Clothing & Resistance Collective/Guerrilla Republik DC) while representing Virginia underground Hip-Hop (Soul Trust Records/Maroon Movement).
This album pays homage to the Maroon spirit of the Black Liberation Army and Tupac Shakur's Thug Life Movement. The gritty wordplay and raw passionate delivery of Sima Lee shines as she explores everything from resistance to colonialism, revolution, racism, classism, sexism, gentrification, culture and smoking large amounts of marijuana, to the full mastery of the art of "verbal s**t-talking 101".
Production includes "Slimkat78" of Mello Music Group's "The 1978ers", the infamous "Wally Clark" of the Tampa scene, Virginia's legendary "Better Beat Bureau" & fire tracks from Sima's son & emerging Indie teen artist/producer from the 757--"Moose". After the hiatus, this is the way to bring in: "The Return of Eye M. Woman"...
