Is It Wrong To Be a Woman Who Likes Pimp Rap?

Posted by on Wed, Oct 24, 2012 at 2:57 PM

I gotta admit something. I still listen to Too $hort sometimes. There. I said it. Does that make me a bad female? Sometimes I just wanna hear some raunchy shit. Total shitty sex shit. Is this bad? Am I bad person?

Also, check out this new kid, after $hort's crown named 100s:

Who was the first pimp that really struck you and made you say, “Damn, that dude is fly?”
The first pimp I ever heard of was Iceberg Slim. It was way back in the day, I must have been ten. Somebody knew I was fascinated by pimps and said, “Read his book.” But I never read it. Around that time, my uncle was staying in East Oakland with his girl, and he had American Pimp laying around. It must have been a VHS. He said, “Don't watch it, that's one of the movies you're not supposed to see.” They wanted me to watch cartoons or something. But I watched American Pimp anyway. There was a pimp in it named Kenny Red. Damn, he had crazy charisma.

Read the whole interview on VICE.


Video after the jump!

I really like a lot of G.G. Allin's songs, but I don't really want to do the things that he's talking about in them.

Thank you. Now back to listening to GG, 100s, and maybe some old Eminem

Love that My Activator track.
Lately I've been listening to the really early Too Short (pre '$') on 75 Girls, there are 8 minute long songs about how cocaine sucks. Pretty great stuff. Don't Stop Rappin and Players are the albums I've heard.
And pimps are garbage people who give sex work a bad name.

hear hear. do you.

i guess there's still shit i used to like that makes me uncomfortable tho. today me & Ramos (the first person I heard talking about that 100's kid, incidentally) were emailing about the just-released video of Lil Reese stomping out his baby's mother; later I randomly youtubed Too Short & Ice Cube's "Ain't Nothing But A Word To Me"—an extremely rude song I used to love to death—and kinda shut it off when Short said "scared to hit that bitch with a left hook? you'se a bitch in my book."

@5 - I'd be interested to hear yours and Ramos' take on 100s! What say you?
