I'm a hip hop head. I listen to a lotta stuff. The more that I listen I become less impressed with what I hear. I would say that I listen to more old skool hip hop than I do anything else. There are a lotta rappers out there...not enough MCs. There's a difference. Every now and then, I'll hear something and say "dayyyyum!!! Did they just say that? Lemme play that again"
I've never been a big fan of female MCs (although I'm a new fan of Keisha the Kitten...keep rhymin'). I don't hate em. I compare em all to MC Lyte. She's my favorite. Lyte didn't have to talk about how big her azz was or how many dudes she slept with. That's easy to rap about. She had skills. Better than MOST dudes.
I was bumpin the new cd from a female MC that most of you have never heard of...Jean Grae. She's very talented. And she can really rhyme! I was listening to her song Love Thirst when she dropped a very sensual verse over a smoothed out beat from 9th Wonder. She could have easily talked about "how she dropped it like it was hot" or "how she's a thug chick and she needs a thug in her life". No...not Jean. Very witty. Classy. Sensual. Imaginative. Peep the 2nd verse from the song...
Okay, turn the lights out - no, turn 'em back on
Want you to see my backbone and my black tone
Start minimal, raise it to animal, please
You're no amateur, please me I'm tangable
Knees be all tangled up, like the handles
placed on the mantle, that romantic angles
We'll slow dance 'til tango and gets horizontal
I know you go longer that flow with no comma (hehe)
I'm high on ya, ya like it don't cha?
Could survive, but it's bitin on ya
Like those, high notes, nibble just a little bit
Everything i'm thinkin, you're already deliverin it
Quiver, pleasure unheard, you ain't even done first, baby
when I done burst, crazy
I'm in love thirst, you are the quencher
Maybe we should be taping so you can remember.. I'm just sayin!
Ever had somebody make you thirsty like that? If you're no longer together, what would it take for them to get you back to that level. (for all of my married folk...i hope your answer is your spouse! lmao) Was the "thirstyness" good for you??
here's how the song sounds if you wanna hear it...
