Check It. Ana Tijoux at the Bootleg Theater.

Ana Tijoux is one of those very talented female rappers in a very male-dominated genre who can definitely hold her own against her fellow male MCs. Her lyrics are smart, she's socially conscious, and she's got a unique style.

The half Chilean, half French MC usually has Spanish lyrics, but has been known to weave French into her songs.

The below video is off her latest album 1977 -- the year Tijoux was born in France after her family fled Chile under the Pinochet regime. She's extremely talented and her live performances are excellent.

Tickets to Ana Tijoux with Money Mark at the Bootleg are $10. The Bootleg Theater is located at 2220 Beverly Blvd. The show starts at 10 p.m.
