Just finished reading it, and IHeartDilla makes a great point on this one… As I mentioned a couple of times in the Blog…(HERE, & speciallyHERE) I am all for female MC’s in this rough male environment…I believe it balances everything, and brings that respect for women back.
If you think the same way, please read IHeartDilla article & Interview with Eternia (a very talented up & coming artist)
Have you ever stepped back to think how truly criminal our society is? In the most miniscule ways, we are all systemically sexists, racists, and flat out jerks. Now I’m not saying everyone is (on another topic, I may, but I’d employThomas Hobbes logic, then things get kinda graphic), but, when one steps back and says “Name the Top 5 Female emcees of all time,” and on another totally relevant conversation ask one to “Name the Top Emcees of All Time,” and 9 times out of 10 won’t include a female emcee in there, isn’t there something slightly subtly wrong in that? I can’t say I’m not guilty of this, I believe most hip hop fans and critics are. What’s my point here? My point is that Michie Mee was the first Canadian rapper to sign a major record deal with American label First Priority/Atlantic. Lauryn Hill damn near won every single Grammy she was nominated for with Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Eve, Erykah Badu, and Jill Scott all claimed a Grammy for being a part of “You Got Me,” by The Roots. In hip hop, the success of the female over looked and tossed aside as another “whatever,” unless some excess cleavage is shown (See: my last article for iHD).
