The Plight of the Female Emcee: 3 Types of Rappers That Annoy Everyone
Fellow writer and soon to be author Jacinta Howard just posted a entertaining analysis on the state of the female rapper over at her blog. I always find it a little more trustworthy to hear about female rappers...from other females. It usually confirms what most dudes think of them unfortunately though. Which is that alot of them suck in the grand scheme of things. I've said it before amongst friends, but female rappers (all rappers on a larger scale actually) are kinda like Black quarterbacks now. There was a time when they HAD to be great at what they were doing if they wanted to be accepted and respected, but somewhere in time enough of them either got accepted or got comfortable to the point that they could afford to be wack.
Howard broke the annoying female rappers down into three catagories: The Mood Ring Emcee, The Butch Emcee and The Rapping Whore. Peep what she had to say HERE.
On a related note, I interviewed Mia X for Ozonemag.com yesterday so be on the look out for that soon.
