“Momma Drama” (watch here)

Sisterhood Of Hip Hop kicked off this week with the conclusion of Nyemiah Supreme‘s meeting with her manager Alex. Alex gives her the info on a celebrity acting coach that should be able to help her tap into her problems. Nyemiah doesn’t seemed too thrilled about it. But it’s her only option if she wants to keep Alex on her team. Brianna Perry on the other hand is having a much better time. She’s playing her new record for heavy hitters: E Class, Fat Joe, and Rick Ross. The trio have all been around Brianna since she was younger and so she values their input. They love her single and offer her a few jewels for her career. Most of which is revolves around the fact that her mother is her manager. After which, she doesn’t have the heart to tell her mentors that she fired her mother and is now managing herself.

Gaza under attack. Police are executing kids in the street. There could be an Ebola outbreak at any time. Where is Ja Rule? We need Ja Rule to make sense of this. Help us, Ja. The world is under attack and instead of asking ‘where are the guys we elected at;’ a lot of you guys are asking where the celebrities are at. You know where the celebrities are? They’re somewhere entertaining because that’s their job. Just like the government should be in Ferguson making sure the police are doing theirs. Now don’t get me wrong, a Jay Z or a Queen Latifah sound-bite would be great right about now. But ask yourself, do you really care about what Nicki Minaj thinks about Gaza? Or how Drake feels about police brutality? Would Kanye’s kind words help ease the threat of Ebola? Yeah, I thought so.

After much anticipation, a new wave of female rap artists made their presence felt on the small screen last night (8/12). Oxygen’s newest reality television show Sisterhood Of Hip Hop debuted it’s very first episode. The episode was dubbed “Femme-C’s” and kept things pretty simple as it basically just gave viewers some insight into the ladies of the cast.

There were people who criticized you for not including more black women on the cover of G I R L. How did you feel about that? Do you want me to be honest with you? Yeah. It’s insecurity. If you love who you are — and I’m not saying that there’s not a plight out there for people who have different skin colors, because Mexicans go through just as much discrimination, if not more discrimination, than Black people do in this country. Right? That’s why I wrote “Marilyn Monroe,” man that which makes you different is what makes you special. You don’t gotta be waif, White, and thin to be beautiful. You can be anything that you want to be, and what I chose to do is put my friends on the cover. The girl that was closest next to me is Black, but they didn’t know that, so they jumped the gun. And it wasn’t all Black women. There were a lot of Black women that were really angry at some of those girls, but some of those girls are the ones that instantly get mad when they don’t see somebody that’s dark.

G I R L (iTunes)

I have been a fan of Pharrell Williams and his work since The Neptunes came along back in the 90’s. When N.E.R.D put out In Search Of, I became an even bigger fan. But the moment that won me over completely was when Pharrell released In My Mind back in 2006. I didn’t know you could love music so much.  I can’t say that I love his latest release G I R L as much as his debut solo LP but he did not disappoint.
