Style and influences[edit]

Rapper Mos Def said about Muldrow: "She’s like Flack, Nina Simone, Ella, she’s something else. She’s like religion. It’s heavy, vibrational music. I’ve never heard a human being sing like this. Her voice is wildly, finely expressive. It’s so singular. It’s hip-hop, the way that she approaches it rhythmically, she’s got so many jazz influences. It’s something else and you can just feel it. She’s like J. Dilla, the legendary producer. She makes her own beats, she rhymes, she sings, and she plays."[10]
