I’m speechless, Kai Davis is a beast at such a young age. She was the 2012 PYPM Slam Season Champion. For her to write a poem so vulgar yet so real and powerful, I support you my sista. Keep speaking because you apart of the talented tenth of our generation.
Check out this interview with her. What a talented young lady.
Shoutout to Babs Bunny, my favorite cast member from The Making The band 2. I absolutely love The QueenOfTheRing.TV rap battles and I can’t wait for what they have in store for 2013. I have been watching their rap battles for the last two years now. I know I am actually kind of late with this post, I should have done a post on The Queen Of The Ring a long time ago. One thing about me is I love freestyle rap battles, this was what proved potential MC’s back in the day. The last time I saw a rap battle when I was visiting my family in Philadelphia, PA earlier this year. I would love to see another one soon but I’m in North Carolina, land of the boring. This battle contains Mis Fit out of Brooklyn and Chayna Ashley out of Bronx. Both of these ladies been one a one year hiatus but they came with the heat!!! I’m glad to see both of these ladies back in the ring but personally I love Mis Fit, she is a beast.
Isn’t it amazing what individuals can do with words? I don’t know about ya’ll but I love me some Spoken word. It’s been a while since i’ve done a post like this so I decided to enlighten yall with this beautiful young lady that I found surfing Youtube.
Just thought I’d expose the world on a talented group of beautiful young women.I actually got hip to them at a Letoya Luckett concert at my school a couple of months ago. I really enjoyed one young lady’s poem about Tyler Perry always depicting and labeling the black women as a victim in his movies. I am so glad this group is out here doing their thing and repping out here for us ladies!!

“since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
So will the real men get up
I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up”
No words could describe how brilliant and knowledgeable Tupac truly was. I think this is probably one my most favorite quotes from the late rapper. I believe us as women have suffered enough through this society and we don’t deserve the mental and violent abuse from our men. Just because Men seem to have physical strength, I think us as women are stronger overall. If only half of the women in the world knew their worth this world would be so much better. Believe it or not, happier women promotes a happier society.
But I am not one of those women anymore. I see my worth and my gift to the world. I understand that I am more than what is in between my legs. That’s why I support all strong women out there fighting and hustling every single day of their lives. I want to empower all women, because I believe that we all should lift each other up.
So fellas try loving us, protecting us, be our shield. We are fed up from being beaten, battered, torn and hopeless. Our men need to wake up and realize their worth, maybe when they realize their worth they will be able to understand ours. Tupac’s quote addressed a serious issue, especially within the black community.
They say Poetry is nearer to vital truth than history…
This is one of my favorite talented poetic sistas. Mrs. Shanelle gabriel is a soulful singer, a gifted writer, actress, and advocate for Lupus awareness. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, she has displayed her skills at colleges and venues both nationally and internationally. Frequently compared to Lauryn Hill and the super duo Floetry wrapped-in-one, Shanelle’s tenacity has allowed her to become a shining star in any path she treads.(http://www.shanellegabriel.com/bio/)
i love to see beautiful black women showcasing their artistic talents, that’s why we need to support them! Check her out in this video performing one of my favorite poems. This one is for the ladies, I love it!!!
When I started this blog I told myself I was going to make sure I posted talented females in Hip Hop, to let this world know that us ladies can roc the mic too. Some of ya’ll might be familar with Ms. K’LA from her single “All your love” that was released in May 2011 signed on Island Def Jam records. I personally loved that song, I appreciated how the producer used the instrumental of “Turn the lights down low” by Bob Marley & Lauryn Hill. But I had no idea that she was a talented rapper as well. Even though K’LA is originally from Gary, Indiana, I love the way her voice gives off this down south feel. She actually reminds me of a female Andre 3000, with her rhyme style and her flow. My favorite track off her mixtape( The Coldest Winter Ever) is “The Coldest Winter Ever”. I love the energy, the flow, and most importantly the story she is tellin in this song. I’m kind of upset because I’m so late on her music, but at least i know now. I would love to do a interview with her to see her view on the music industry and how her success has affected her life. Also check out her spoken word video, I’m telling you this girl is a beast. K’La got the flava in my book!! What about yours?
Erika David is a popular You Tuber. I like how she switched up the words for us ladies and how she embraced the song. Absolutely love the song “Strip” originally recorded by Chris Brown so of course I had to check her video out. What do you think?
