Houston, Texas native HillaryJane, who’s cover of W.L.A.K.’s smash “Long Way Down” created a stir last year, has signed with Infiltrate Music. The label, which is co-owned by Rapzilla.com co-owners Chad Horton and Phillip Rood is also home to Chicago based MC/ Producer Skrip and Las Vegas teenage-sensation Kidd.
The signing is another win for female artists as these types of deals have been hard to come by for many female artists. This comes off the heals of Thi’sl releasing the all-female compilation Gurl Code late last year, and Humble Beast announcing the signing of Chi-town poet and lyricist Jackie Hill-Perry.
Infiltrate Music announced HillaryJane’s signing via press release.
Press Release Statement:
San Diego, CA—Infiltrate Music is excited to announce the addition of 20-year old Houston Texas native, HillaryJane to their growing roster. This deal continues to solidify their position in the marketplace as well as round out their sonic offering.
Since the beginning, Hip Hop has been dominated by males. Whether that is because of the unspoken expectation of bravado, or the actual lack of females is up for debate. What is clear though, is there are not enough ladies. You can find talented artists who are women, but it will be difficult to find one who specifically aims to empower other women to strive for authentic womanhood—HillaryJane aspires to do just that.
“I first worked with HillaryJane on the Stop The Traffic album released by Rapzilla.com which helped benefit NYCUP (a division of InterVarsity in New York City) that fights human trafficking. HillaryJane worked with Infiltrate recording artist Skrip to create, “Not For Sale” which perfectly captures the point of the project,” says Infiltrate Music co-founder Chad Horton.
“You are worth more than any man can pay. Live confidently knowing that you’ve already been bought and paid for by Jesus,” says HillaryJane confidently concerning her contribution to the project.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the Infiltrate team because we share a desire to reach our culture through music. They believe in my talent and support my individuality. I couldn’t ask for more!” adds HillaryJane.
HillaryJane premiered new music from her upcoming EP, at SXSW 2014 in Austin, TX last week.
