Ego Trip is back with another entertaining (??) show full of wack rappers. I never thought I would say it, but I agree with Game. In a recent interview he echoed the statements of many who understood the contestants were straight garbage. Does Ego Trip not know this? Anyway, last year’s White Rapper Show gave guys like John Brown their 15 minutes, which many of us found out was 15 minutes too many.
In advance of the airing of Ego Trip’s Miss Rap Supreme I figured I would swing by the ladies’ Myspace pages and see what they were about. The findings may shock you.
1. Bree/23/Los Angeles, CA
VH1 SAYS: Don’t be fooled by Bree’s small stature, her boundless energy and relentless drive push this 23-year-old former boxer from L.A. to be the best. Determined to make the world see female rappers in a better light, she spits with purpose, spreading a positive message that packs a punch.
20/20PROOF SAYS: Bre has been demanded by 46 people in the New York area according to her Myspace. She has no chance in hell of winning this contest. Her lyrics are very Lifetime TV.
VH1 SAYS:Byata’s not your average white rapper. Born to Russian parents and raised in Coney Island, this tough, magnetic 26-year-old exudes confidence and has the skills to back it up. Coming with flow, lyrics and originality, B has created a unique and respected style that’s all her own.
20/20PROOF SAYS: She is not your average white rapper. She is your average Russian white rapper. She even states that she gets judged based on her skin tone. Cry me a river, yo. On one track I hear Bahamadia and on another I hear Paula Perry. Could win just based on the competition.
VH1 SAYS: At 23, D.A.B., aka Down Azz Bitch, has lived a lifetime. A victim of childhood molestation and a former heroin addict, this Dighton, MA native with killer abs has turned her struggles into words and wants to share her experiences with the world.
20/20PROOF SAYS: A white ex-junkie whose only exposure to hip-hop has been her 2Pac tapes. I think I will pass on the addict raps, thank you very much. If she is not eliminated quickly, I will be shocked.
4. CHIBA/28/NEPTUNE, NJ
VH1 SAYS: Chiba, 28, knows a thing or two about fate, as this Jerzey-born, Atlanta-residing artist nearly lost her life in a car accident. But the accident made her serious about rapping and once recovered from her injuries, she dedicated herself to writing rhymes and performing.
20/20PROOF SAYS: Do we really need another track named “Shake It Girl” or “Crunk Juice” ? Will she be the wild card a la Shamrock? Will she win Miss Rap Supreme and never be heard from again? Guaranteed that Serch will get on her case for being one-dimensional one moment and praising her for her “edginess” the next. Yo-Yo will dig her.
VH1 SAYS: Thug Missses has beefed with Trina and a host of other rappers and now–anger management classes aside–this 31-year-old Tampa native is beefing with everyone in the Fembassy. After selling 800,000 copies of her hit single, “My Neck, My Back,” Khia, wants to show the universe that she’s not just the Queen of the South, she’s Miss Rap Supreme.
20/20PROOF: Can’t wait for another beef track about saggy titties. Based on her past behavior she will be great for reality TV. Why else would they put her on? Isn’t Khia being in this competition kinda like Cuba putting all their professional ballplayers in the Olympics and whipping our ass? Silly question, my fault. No chance in hell of winning.
VH1 SAYS: Love it or shove it, Lady Twist, has a story to tell. The 22-year-old Chicago college student may crack jokes at every turn, but she’s as serious about her lyrics and lightning-speed flow as she is about her journalism career.
20/20PROOF SAYS: Twist needs to face reality. Her calling in life is to play a character like Snupe on The Wire. Unfortunately, that show is done. She is overweight and looks like a dude. There is no market in hip-hop for ladies that resemble an obese high school boy. Please stay in college and be an X-Ray technician.
7. LIONEZZ/29/ORLANDO, FL
VH1 SAYS: Lionezz’ hip hop roots go to her childhood, where her father was a DJ at a Munich roller-skating rink and she a dancer in a rap troupe. Despite her German roots, Lionezz, hates beer and cold weather, which might explain why this 29-year-old lives in sunny Orlando, FL.
20/20PROOF SAYS: Wow, the opposite of Lady Twist. Seems like she will be like the British girl from last season. What was her name? Uhmmmm….. yeah, who cares. Why does she live in Orlando? Stripping, perhaps? If your career has not launched by age 29, it ain’t going anywhere honey. Be like Twist and please go to college. This is not Invincible and you are not Marky Mark.
VH1 SAYS: From her swag to her speech, everything about Ms. Cherry screams Atlanta. Confident with a dope flow (not to mention a silky smooth singing voice), this 23-year-old Lady of the South makes everything she does look effortless, including going digitally platinum with her 2005 local hit, It’s Whateva.
20/20PROOF SAYS: With brilliant song titles like “Keep Dat Hoe” and “My Tool” it is obvious that Ms. Cherry is the definition of class. From her lyrics to her dumb song titles, everything about Ms. Cherry screams “ignorant.” Serch, are you in fucking debt?
9. NICKY2STATES/28/HUNTSVILLE, AL
VH1 SAYS: Nicky2States combines the best of the North and the South. Born and bred on the mean streets of NY, this sexy, tell-it-like-it-is 28-year-old now lives with her children (and silver bullet) in Huntsville, Alabama. Though she’s a top-rate booty shaker with years of “life experience,” she’s relatively new to the rap game.
20/20PROOF SAYS: The great J-Zone once said “you wanna be a singer/ and you got 4 kids/ bitch you crazy.” Why would you go from stripping to rapping? Isn’t that like going from a job at Wall Street to McDonald’s manager? Since when did shaking your ass in a club mean you have life experience? The porn tape is going to hit mediatakeout.com soon, I just know it.
VH1 SAYS: Rece Steele reps the BX through and through. The daughter of rap artist L.A. Star, hip hop runs through this 25-year-old’s blood. Behind her hard delivery and crazy flow, Rece shows heart and passion, especially when it comes to talking about her first love…her son. But, don’t get it twisted, Rece suffers no fools and if you’re not real, you’ll quickly discover just how hard Steele can be.
20/20PROOF SAYS: WHAT… THE…FUCK. That look needs to go. However, I am going to go with Rece as my dark horse and pick her to win the Miss Rap Supreme championship. She has a style that will appeal to Yo Yo and Serch. Based on her Myspace music, she seems to be the best of the contestants at crafting a song.
