The female rap game has always been one of ups and downs.  Female artists such as MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, and Monie Love paved the way for artists like Lil Kim, Eve, and Da Brat.  While men usually proclaim most of the rap game’s glory, women have proven that over the years, they are just as capable of putting out music that can stand side by side with them.  Two females that are battling for the top spot, Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj, have a chance to prove once again why females deserve to get respect in the game.  Continue reading

Birthdays and Hip-Hop!

Sorry for the delay in getting on here, but as you all know, life happens!  I had an amazing weekend and got to experience some wonderful things…just thought I’d share the highlights!  First off, it was my beautiful mother’s birthday (say, “Happy Birthday Mommy!”) and I got to spend lots of time with her and the rest of my family and friends.  She loved every second of her party (so did I)!

I also forgot to mention that a few weeks ago my mom received an award from the National Conference of Puerto Rican Women (NACOPRW) at the 2012 ODESSA Awards ceremony.  She was recognized for her public and civil work within the community!  YES! She takes care of her own on a daily basis.

Love you, Mommy!

The next exciting thing about my weekend was attending the Life is Good tour with Nas and Lauryn Hill.  YES! She is back!  If you don’t know, now you know…she is my all-time favorite female artist!  I had such a great time!

What have you been up to?  Anything fun and exciting?!

***SNEAK PEEK*** Nas “Bye Baby” Trailer

 

I’m not sure if it’s because I’m going to see Nas this Friday or if it’s because this is one of my favorite tracks off of the Life is Good album…but either way, here is the trailer to his new video, Bye Baby.  Take a peek:

 

 

 

 

Life is Good…

He’s taken a hiatus and has come back with a masterpiece!  With all that life has put at his feet in recent years, he’s put it all into his craft and the argument of who the best rapper is will definitely be reignited with this album.  Life is Good brings lyrical content and plenty of personal confirmations, especially in reference to his saddening divorce from Kelis.  If you’re wondering if he drops her name…yes he does!  He’s back!  If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to support real artistry and get the new Nas album!  This is what Hip-Hop needs!

Before I go, I’m leaving you with a small excerpt from the album…and this is just from the intro; only the tip of the iceberg:

…who wasn’t the most faithful husband, revealed my life, you will forgive me, you will love me, hate me, judge me, relate to me. Only a few will, this how it sounds when you’re too real. They think it’s just music still. Well, I am a graphic, classic, song composer, music notes on sheets I wrote this piece, to get closure. Some of yall might know Kelis, this goes to her with love, also goes to yall to see, the craziest things already happened to me…so either you’ll be laughing at me or you’re laughing with me.
