So Alexandra Shipp has landed the role of Aaliyah in Lifetime’s biopic. What do you think about this? Wendy Williams is one of the executive producers of the film. Do you think it will be an authentic portrayal of Aaliyah?

One of my many favorites by Whitney Houston. 

I love her voice. Leela James is a vocal, pint-sized powerhouse that expresses gut-wrenching soul. I love hearing smoky vocals over a well-produced R&B track.

Jessica and Pam have a chat. LOL…Pam is awesome. I love how they did the Darryl Hannah Splash-like crinkles in her hair.

Nicki Minaj favorites supportive tweet from Female Rap Legend Rah Digga



But Nicki is a fraudulent Lil Kim. She’s no Latifah, Lyte or any of the great female emcees before her. When did guest appearances on albums become consideration as being a “rap legend?”

Nicki, away with you.

“True confidence leaves no room for jealousy. When you know your are great, you have no need to hate.” This is Nicki Minaj when Lil’ Kim came after that ass when she debuted. 

"What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it," she told the audience, adding that she meant no offense. "No, no, no shade, no, no, no shade." This was Nicki during the BET Awards throwing shade at Iggy Azalea.

This is the same person who cried about female empowerment when many women in hip-hop saw her (and still see) her as a gimmick. It’s pretty tasteless that when someone new comes along she has to down their talent. Regardless whether Iggy is white or whatever, hip-hop isn’t easy for anyone. Nicki is mad Iggy came along and has had a #1 single for a few weeks. Instead of wasting time about being authentic, when clearly she’s not, try evolving hip-hop and your artistry. 

Remember, everything you’ve done, rappers before have done it way better.

As a hip-hop fan for the last 25 years, her material is nothing to ride home about. I’m still trying to figure out what the fuck a pill and potion is about. 

I hate that women in this business can’t work together without trying to down one another. If someone is doing good, leave them be. That means you need to step your game up.
