I have loved hip-hop since I bought my first

 I have loved hip-hop since I bought my first rap tape back in 1988 (He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper, if you really want to know), so that might give you some idea of how much it hurts me to say this, but I think I’ve reached the point where I need to tell hip-hop “let’s just be friends.” George Costanza might attempt the old “it’s not you, it’s me,” but in truth, in that scenario (hip-hop reference!), the problem is both the you that is hip-hop, and me.

Hip-hop is not what it used to be. I know I sound old saying that, but the fact of the matter is the content,………Read the full story at: AdamsWorldBlog.com

V-Nasty – Not As Nasty As She Wants To Be?

Posted in Adam's World, Article, Female Mc's, v-nasty with tags , , , , , , , on March 21, 2012 by generalnyc


Some people only think of V-Nasty as the rapper from Kreayshawn’s White Girl Mob that drops the N-bomb. Those who’ve heard her music may think she’s an angry person. Those who’ve seen her live performances may think of her as the happy person they’ve seen on stage, smiling and high-fiving fans. None of those images, however, give the full story on who V-Nasty is, and that’s because, according to her, she’s struggling to tell that story herself.

It’s that struggle that’s the aspect of V-Nasty that most never get a chance to see. This isn’t a typical “struggle to get out of the hood” type of struggle, although that’s certainly an aspect of it. Rather, it’s the struggle of knowing she doesn’t have the right words for what she wants to say, and desperately wanting those words to come to her. Despite her brash demeanor on the mic, there’s a vulnerability to V-Nasty that, if more people saw, might change some opinions of her.

On the heels of the release of V-Nasty’s mixtape, Doin Number$, RapReviews sat down with controversial artist to discuss the initial impression people had of her, her goal of going back to school, and her unique relationship with her fans. The mother of two also opened up about the highly unlikely prospect of becoming a soccer mom.

Differing Audiences – A Battle of the Sexes

I go to a monthly event in NYC where once a year they have an all-female lineup and open mic. Something very interesting happens on that particular night – the crowd changes. Some of the regulars are still there, but for the most part the males are absent as the female artists end up having to bring their own crowd with them. They usually do a good job of packing the place, but the problem is glaring – men, and male artists, stay at home, or go elsewhere, when women are performing.
