Sara Kana was spawned in the heart of the Big Apple. Her first taste of the life she wanted to live was watching the RockSteady Cru and the NYC Breakers battle right in front of her eyes, and her father introduced her to this beautiful music we call: HIP HOP!. By this point she had began a close friendship with a lot of Hip Hop artists through the Lyricists Lounge. She began working with Underground Legends Jean Grae & Apani B. Fly Emcee. She went on to feature on Jean Grae’s first album “Attack of the Attacking Things” and was featured on Apani’s song Estrogen which also featured other up-coming female MC’s and was produced by DJ Spinna.

Sara Kana – Lets be real, if it wasn’t for Sara Kana the female battle scene may not exist. I remember asking Cortez who the best female was in Fight Klub that we never heard of. He mentioned Sara, but didn’t know how to find her. I hunted her down on good ol’ myspace and told her SHE NEEDED to be a part of the GT movement. She was so excited! I remember when we released that freestyle/callout he did to Lady Luck/Reese Steele – I sent it to worldstar and everything went crazy. Sara battling Gattas was one of the most anticipated battles amongst our staff. Sara battling QB was the start of the new wave of female emcees. Sara has grown to be a close friend and confidant and will always be at my side going into the future. Um … I love you Sara … no homo.-DRECT FORMER C.E.O OF Grind Time - The World's Largest Rap Battle League
