Karma Nov 18 (53 of 110).jpg


With her clever, edgy lyricism and riotous stage persona, Karma Rivera has risen to star status in the Portland rap scene. The emerging rapper and Hype queen explores the strength and value behind words with meaning. And she does this without seeking to fall on a commercial loop hole of music that hardly displays artistic value. Driven by passion from writing and performing, Karma covers a wide range of subjects such as sexual identity, how it is to be a female artist in the industry and the musical and cultural movements behind her Afro-Latina (Puerto Rican descent) roots.
