Sister Souljah is no stranger to controversial statements. In the ‘90s, her politically poignant remarks fueled anti-hop-hop sentiment and even caused president Bill Clinton to publicly denounce her comments.
In a recent interview with The Root, the bestselling author, MC and social activist sits down to talk about her career, her writing and tell why she is more than an “urban” author.
“I’m not in sync with this street-lit genre,” she told The Root. “I think that when European authors or Euro-American authors write about urban, suburban or rural areas, it’s just called literature. So I call my work literature, and anyone who reads my books knows that it’s literature.”
