Barsha was a rap artist from Brooklyn, NY who released 1 album through Bum Rush Records in the early 90's entitled Barsha's Explicit Lyrics. The late 80s/early 90s era of hip-hop was a world of fast breaks and beats, and a message largely focused on self-aggrandizement - conquests of women, ruling the streets, and busting the chops of sucka emcees. Hip-hop had its share of mainstream successes by that time, but they were clearly the exception, and not the rule. New York was the center of the hip-hop scene, and First Priority Music was ready to make a move. Armed with a skilled roster of artists, including Positive K, MC Lyte, her already successful brothers in Audio Two, and the DJ skills of The King of Chill, The First Priority Music Family was poised to sit on top of the hip-hop scene. Already surrounded by a wealth of talent and success, it seemed like anything they touched would turn to gold. So hopes were high in December 8th, 1990, with the release of Barsha's Explicit Lyrics, a release from a young, hopeful emcee named Barsha. Unfortunately, the Midas touch passed over Barsha's effort.
