Music, Rap, hip-hop and R&B
After an early flirtation with the big labels, mononymous Philly singer-songwriter Res—short for Shareese Renée Ballard—went the DIY route, parlaying a 2009 free-download album, Black.Girls.Rock!, into a cult following and high-profile work with Cee Lo Green and Talib Kweli. Tonight she's celebrating a new LP, Refried Mac, with Kweli and other special guests.
