Last year we were blessed on Hashtag to have The Sorority come through and hang for an entire show. At the time, the MC’s had alluded to new music and big plans on the way, but were “hush hush” on details. Graciously, the hip-hop quartet, didn’t make us wait too long. With a new video, the Sorority will be dropping a new album April 23rd.. and going on tour across North America.
Album: Pledge – Release date: April 23rd
pHoenix Pagliacci, Keysha Freshh, Lex Leosis and Haviah Mighty found themselves at a cypher hosted by TeamBackPack in 2016 for International Women’s Day. Unknown to each other, the four took turns spitting over what would become one of the biggest cyphers of 2016. Noisey asked, “Have you ever heard someone rap so good you had to close your eyes and ask Our Lord Saviour what you did to deserve this?” Drawing the attention of Fader, Rap Season, Boi-1da.net, Noisey and many Canadian music publications, the four decided to form The Sorority.
The Sorority have played a number of festivals including Toronto’s Manifesto Festival, the City of Toronto’s Canada150 Festival, and Unity Festival and opened for the likes of Majid Jordan, The Internet, Isaiah Rashad, Jidenna, DVSN, Miguel, Joey Bada$$, A-Trak and others.

(BTW, here’s that cypher that got these ladies the attention they deserve. This whole time I thought they were already a group at this time.)
