Eternia mini art print
One 4″ x 6″ mini print of a portrait illustration that I did of emcee Eternia. See original here.
This is a LIMITED QUANTITY print, with only 4 to purchase right here. There are other opportunities to get one of these: by chance (ordering a “mystery print” where I randomly handpick one to send) or through a giveaway on my Instagram at a later date. That said, if you absolutely want one*, order quickly! First come, first serve.
* These are sold individually, meaning you can only buy one of Eternia. This way, other people have an opportunity to get their hands on one, too.
- The sizing is that of a postcard: 4″ x 6″
- Print is matte. The front (with the art) has a smooth, soft-feel coating. The back is a lime green color, and says “WOMXN IN HIP HOP BY TIFFANY BURRISS” in black lettering, on the bottom left corner. You are able to write on the back.
- Each print comes numbered (on the back) and signed.
- Colors are bold and vibrant, but may appear different on your screen than in real life.
Introduction that I wrote about Eternia in 2019: Eternia, an emcee from Toronto, Canada. My earliest recollection of becoming a fan of @therealeternia was when I heard songs like “Evidence” & “Bang” in ’06. She is a fierce lyricist with a bulletproof flow, an energetic delivery, strong wordplay, endless punchlines, hard-hitting verbal threats, conscious storytelling, & emotional depth. Introduced to rap by her older brother in the late 80’s, she was bumping Public Enemy, 2 Live Crew, & Black Sheep at age 8, but found lyrical inspiration in 90’s underground hip hop, soon making a name for herself as an emcee. In ’05, she moved to NYC to pursue music full-time for 10 years, which proved to be a successful: she released Where I Been – The Collection in ’05; her first album, It’s Called Life, in ’05; Where I’m At – The Setup in ’07; the Get Caught Up mixtape in ’09; & the At Last album with producer MoSS in ’10. Between all that, she was also a 2-time Juno-nominee, signed with Fat Beats, toured across 3 continents, & started the “My Favorite Rapper Wears a Skirt” campaign, which served to break gender stereotypes in hip hop. As a purveyor of truth, you can find a fearless Eternia spitting personal confessions about domestic abuse, sexual assault, abortion, the music industry, adolescent struggles, alcoholism, social injustices, & mental health, to wielding empowering bars about overcoming adversity, being a survivor, finding purpose, speaking your truth, God, & the power of love, inner strength, & your voice. Her list of collaborators is massive: Rah Digga, Lady of Rage, Jean Grae, Apollo Brown, Torae, Shad, 9th Wonder, Jake One, Snowgoons, & Apathy, to name a few. She’s involved in activism & mentoring the youth, lending her voice to speak to kids about girl’s rights, gender equity, mental health, & hip hop culture. Although she hasn’t dropped any solo material in 9 years, she’s been active with collaborations & featured verses, speaking on hip hop panels & podcasts, performing, was featured on the Adult Rappers documentary, & she’s been working on NEW MUSIC. 🙌🏻 Music aside, she’s been navigating the highs/lows of life, family & motherhood. Please get familiar, she’s dope!
FYI: Although she hasn’t released any solo material in awhile, Eternia has a few new features out there. There’s “Day & Night” on MoSS’ 2016 album, as well as a posse cut on Teck Zilla’s “Victory” that dropped last year (Eternia’s on the last verse).
