Flower with thorns

Lotus is Norwegian hip-hop’s first lady, if we are to believe Don Martin. And he has good reasons to claim so: Maria Karlsen has already made her mark as the articulate spokeswoman in the rap band Awesomnia, where she declares with great bravado that no one are to mess with her or anyone else who identifies as a woman. On “Spytter” she sounds almost furious, which is not really strange: The patriarchy still permeates society, both visible and invisible ways. Fortunately, Lotus is in full motion at burning it down to the ground.
