You may have been introduced to Miz Korona when she slayed a rap battle outside of a food truck in Eminem’s 2002 quasi-autobiographical film 8 Mile. But Korona has grown far beyond her silver-screen debut. A critically acclaimed underground artist, Korona delivers honesty in true hip-hop fashion with a classic soul twist. She told Metro Times in 2014 that she’s been known to out-rap the boys. Korona will be mixing things up during her DIA performance as she will be accompanied by a live band.
Miz Korona will perform with a live band on Friday, Dec. 15 at the DIA with two performances at 7, 8:30 p.m. 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-7900; dia.org Admission is free.
