Arleta

In the Czech Republic, it isn’t very easy for female rappers yet. Arleta, however, is gifted with bravery, stubbornness, uncommon flow and the willingness to experiment.

 

She raps since 2018 but released her debut EP, Ability to Damage Plant, two years later. Last year’s EP Am2021 and the following three singles (Styl, Sen, Statement) depict Arleta as a rapper who is determined to approach the genre in a way it hasn’t been approached by anyone in the Czech Republic before. Deep emotional confessions, fight against toxic masculinity and journeys to previously unexplored female topics; if anyone has potential to further evolve local rap, it’s her. Arleta has collaborated with the Slovak rapper Fvck_Kvlt who’s shows she also frequently supports. Even the Czech rap legend Hugo Toxx offered his helping hand by having her feature on his last year’s record Mumie.
