In this episode, we meet Isatta Sheriff, a remarkable lyricist, DJ, lecturer, and podcaster, who has forged a career within music and continuously strived to expand the reach of hip-hop within her community.
Hailing from Stepney in London, her inspiring journey has seen her develop her own organization – Doctored Sound, supporting creatives in long-lasting ways, whilst remaining true to her core skill of lyricism.
The Find’s DTC podcast focuses on exploring the art, passion, and culture of hip-hop, and digging deeper into the passions, inspirations, and experiences of those involved in the scene’s rich culture, immersing you in their music. This season features artwork from Ross Mullins of Anchor Points and intro music by Herma Puma & Jabba The Kut.
