Constantly getting thrown against lockers during middle school years is enough to make some people scarred and bitter as adults but not Brittany Street. She was picked on because of her small stature but dealt with her teen angst by writing rhymes. By the time she was in high school, the petite self-proclaimed martian (listen to her mixtape for an explanation for that reference) became a force to be reckoned with by fighting back lyrically and becoming so good that people began to try to battle her with little success. Now at 24, she has already gotten the chance to Read the rest of this entry »
After years of label and legal drama, Jacki-O is focused on shifting negative stereotypes about female MCs by becoming the change she hopes to see.

New York State Senator Eric Adams has spent $2,000 on an ad campaign to try to encourage young men to stop sagging their pants. Some men (and boys) who sag their pants do it to make an asinine fashion statement but it’s a trend that started in prison, where anyone whose pants were sagging were suggesting that they were available for sex.
It’s a really cool video. I’m like eh, when it comes to the song. Maybe it will grow on me, like if I hear it on the right system at a party. We shall see. Baby Knight makes a cameo at the end.
