So I am back, it’s actually been a while but I have just been so busy and there have been so many things I want to blog about so one at a time!
The summer has been filled with alcohol and party, mixed with a LOT of hard work and the grind, I am even planning to get back into doing open MIC’s and performing.
So, I thought who would be better than to blog about than Mz Cardi B, yeah I know the craze at the moment and to be honest the hype never really gets me or interests me but when I am ready to listen and indulge I make it happen.
I have been looking for inspiration recently, the success stories of the underdogs and I started watching Love and Hip-hop. I love the old skool rappers like Papoose and although I don’t know if I am sure on Remy Ma for cussing out Nicki, I do love their relationship.
Anyway, love and hip-hop is basically the journey of some of the established female rappers and the under dogs that have some SERIOUS raw talent and in Season 6, you see Cardi B really trying her hardest to make-it in the female rap game.
She has to deal with the Creep DJ Self basically using her or trying to sleep with her (not sure if she did, but she knows how to play a dumb guy). She is asking him to hook her up by listening to her music and he just won’t do it but will play BBOD’s tracks (I think they’re whack and it just shows what money can do for you – but let me know what you think!)
This story really made me respect Cardi, she is too funny and she is just herself all or nothing. Her raps are fucking unbelievable and she has now proven herself to be a rising star in the rap world.
The moral of the story is the music industry is fickle, long gone are the days where an A&R will help you to establish your brand and direction, you gotta do it all on your own. Nobody is interested in signing you if you don’t have a following.
It begs the question how these girls get on the TV shows initially, but however they’re doing it – they’re doing something which essentially is securing their futures and they are closer to their dreams each day.
I LOVE CARDI!!!!
