It's Canadian hip-hop legend Michie Mee's birthday today, and to celebrate, she's shared videos for "Willing & Able" and "What You Talkin' 'Bout," both from last year's Bahdgyal's Revenge

The pioneering rapper has also relaunched her website and announced a livestream concert called Michie Mee & Family 'On This Mic,' happening at Toronto's DC Music Sound Stage 7 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 21. 

"Today is my 51st birthday, but I'm calling it my 50 do-over because of the pandemic" she said in a press release. "I thought today would be the perfect time to release these two videos, re-launch my website, and announce details of my upcoming live stream show. It's gonna be a movie — well lit! Concert hall-style! "

"I just straight let 'em have it in a freestyle lyric-based rap," said Michie of "Willing & Able."

"Vintage mint condition play my position last disposition, rap musician, because music is what I do. I stand my ground on I'm you bahdgyal Aunty, a grown-ass woman still rapping. I know where you lil bahdgyals coming from I been doing it a long time. There are a lot of interesting references in this song," she added.

Meanwhile, "What U Talkin' 'Bout" is a metal-influenced standout on the record, inspired by Mee's time as a founding member of alt-rock band Raggadeath, who tore shit up in the '90s, finding the space between metal and dancehall. 

Exclaim! caught up with Michi Mee earlier this year to talk about her new record and inspiring generations of Canadian emcees.
