The first female in Christian rap music, MC Ge Gee was born in the Bronx and raised in Dallas, where her parents run an inner-city youth outreach that was the subject of the film The Cross and the Switchblade. In the middle of the rap fray, she wasn't a hard rapper, nor a pop one. She picked up the serious, issue-oriented street-poetry legacy of her late brother, D-Boy Rodriguez. Her two albums, 1990's I'm for Real and the following year's And Now the Mission Continues, appeared on Frontline.
