Nineteen years ago today (June 4) hip-hop lost one of it’s pioneering performers, LaTasha Sheron Rogers, better known as MC Trouble. As the first female rapper signed to Motown Records, Trouble made a name for herself with her hit single “(I Wanna) Make You Mine,” featuring the Good Girls, in 1990, which paved the way for her debut disc, Gotta Get a Grip.
Possessing a style that blended hip-hop and R&B sensibilities, Trouble seemed primed for success. Unfortunately, she suffered an epileptic in her sleep that resulted in her untimely death. She was just 20 years old. Today, XXLMag.com remembers the late MC Trouble with some of her memorable tracks and a tribute from fellow artist Nefertiti.
