Don't you love how proper hip-hop is kinda making it's way back into the mainstream?  You know, like when hip-hop was fresh, fun and 80s-tastic.  Riding high on that wave is one of my favorite new acts – Mercedes.  She's recently released her new video to "Airwave Hustler" and it's "just a taste" of what we can expect from this rising young starlet.  At the last EQ Live show, Mercedes was a last minute line-up addition and she totally BLEW ALL OF US AWAY with her fresh rhymes and songs, not to mention some rather fly moves.  Girl knows how to work a mic.

Anyways – check out "Airwave Hustler" and I think you'll begin to understand why EQ has branded her the new Neneh Cherry…Watch out Nicki Minaj
