Current Hip Hop Climate for Female Rappers

Cardi B lit social media on fire last night! It was in response to Jermaine Dupri’s comments on an interview about female rappers.  I understood both sides of the argument where each party made valid points. Honestly, I blame the industry who enables these types of rappers. I blame people like Dupri, Diddy, The-Dream who are the position to stop this debauchery and bring in quality rap. Yet, they put dollars over morality. What happened to standing up for something and not falling for anything? Did Rakim, Public Enemy, Big Daddy Kane teach us anything?  Now, I do agree with Dupri about the abundance of all these...

The Purple One

The Purple One

I’m a firm believer that God makes no mistakes. He gave us the legendary Prince Rogers Nelson in the month of June. Some might wonder why this is significant, June is black music month. It’s only fitting that the prince of rock and roll was born in a month that celebrates melaninated greatness.  For those who don’t know Prince was born on June 7, 1958.  Some might know him for his famous shade but he was allowed to throw it. The man was multi-faceted in every sense of the word. Most people have a team around them to accomplish their hits, this legend only called...
