I would kill to be like Eartha when I’m an old woman.


I’ve got some white friends who claim they’re color blind. They don’t see red lights; their blues ain’t like mine.

Interview Magazine | The Multihyphenate Rapper: Njena Reddd Foxxx

Marcus Holmund: Tell me about your process. Do you write? Do you freestyle? Is it one-take?Foxxx: I do really well when a challenge is put in front of me. I don’t just wake up and write. I like being forced to make decisions on the spot. I think that’s why I’ve done so many things as a freelancer. I like being put in a studio and having that “ready, set, go” aspect to it. I do write, but, I’m way too indecisive when the options are limitless, so, the more stripped down things are, the swifter the process is for me. Like for “Flex,” I got in the studio, felt the beat, wrote the shit and then spit it. For “Silly Bitch,” I had written some verses to a Soulja Boy song called “Get Silly” as a kind of remix thing and then ended up recording it later atop a different beat that fit and it became an entirely different song. So, I guess, my process is wherever things take me at the moment. Which is a lot like my college experience and working as a freelancer afterward…it’s very trial-by-fire.

HIP HOP’S QUEER PIONEERS
YES, THEY’RE ALL GAY, BUT THE SEVEN MCS IN THIS PORTFOLIO ARE AS DIFFERENT FROM ONE ANOTHER AS KANYE AND LIL WAYNE, WITH INFLUENCES THAT RANGE FROM NAS TO BJÖRK TO JEAN COCTEAU. YET THEY DO HAVE ONE OTHER BIG THING IN COMMON: THEY’RE INDELIBLY CHANGING THE FACE—AND SOUND—OF RAP.



I love House of Ladosha, Mykki Blanco, and Le1f, but can’t vouch for the rest…

Apparently Scream Club is playing MichFest. Spread the word and don’t go to their shows unless they back out. Also, check out their facebook to tell them to change their plans.
If you don’t know why MichFest is transmisogynistic read An Open Letter to My Friends Who Go to MichFest by Annie Danger.

I’m reblogging with an updated link because I got asks about what is problematic about this. The fact that you don’t know says a lot about how much you care about transmisogyny, but that’s just stating the obvious.
