So now that all the dudes seem to be tired of rapping, does that mean that the lane is open for women?
I mean, everyday there's some new rapper claiming that rap is over and they are going to be doing something "new" and "creative." Mostly, that just means that they are going to abuse auto-tunes really badly over a generic alternative rock track.
You have Weezy and his rock album, the Rebirth.
You have Kanye and the Revolution.
You have Face saying he's ain't rapping no more.
So, since they are tired, I think it's only fitting that they pass the reins over to the women. After all, female rappers haven't even really had the opportunity to become overexposed and bored with their music. Remember the early-mid 90s? Remember what hip-hop sounded like then? When some rappers had some mainstream success, but by and large most cats were still flying under Viacom the radar? That's where women are now. So by those standards, the bulk of the women who will emerge should be pretty dope, right?
With that said, as sad as I am about Scarface supposedly leaving the game and as much as my ears hurt listening to Weezie's "Prom Queen," they can stay where they are. Let the ladies get a little shine, is all I'm sayin.
