about

ASSATA TROI is an album about owning our past pain and turning it into power. It is about family and love, addiction and triumph. A sonic exploration of Hip Hop, Rock, Blues, and R&B, with incredible lyricism coupled with complex instrumentation. This is a timelessly iconic album for today’s America.

In the words of Shirelle, the album tells "the painful, yet beautiful journey from ignorance to enlightenment and the trauma you encounter trying to reach that destination. It exposes intimacies of relationships through sound. Relationships with lovers, friends, society, God and ultimately one’s self.”

ASSATA TROI translated is, “she who struggles is a warrior.”
