New Song “Work”

4

I’m sorry I’ve been absent, but that’s because I was working on a special surprise. I’ve gone back to my roots and recorded a new song! It’s a cover of rapper Iggy Azalea’s “Work”. I’ve re-written a lot of the lyrics to better suit myself and I got pretty personal. I really put my heart into this one and I’m proud of what I did with the song. I hope everyone enjoys. ❤

Work

Lyrics: By Iggy Azalea and Asylum Attendant

Intro

Work for hours on a new song

But, I ain’t done this shit in so long

I’m not bitchin’ I’m just telling you

Trying to let you know what the fuck that I’ve been through

Verse 1

Grew up in the Midwest, nonsense

Hoes so vain, insane

Tried to go with the grain

But, I’ve now overcome that pain.

Haters got a lot to say

Cutting me down for being gay

Listening to them would just be dumb

As I make it past where I am from.

Bridge

No friends, mad family

Sixteen and so unhappy

Hook

I’ve been up all night, tryna get this rich

I’ve been work work work work working on my shit

Milked the whole game twice, gotta get it how I live

I’ve been work work work work working on my shit

Now get this work (4)

Working on my shit

Verse 2

You can hate me or love me

The struggle didn’t change me

More than anything it saved me.

Femme boy with a new ploy

Some thought I was psychotic

Or just plain idiotic

Might have been crazy, sometimes lazy

Never let the sadness break me.

Stomped through the bullshit like a rivethead

Just made me madder and madder

Til’ the taunts came to a head.

So, I got stronger

Dyed my hair as I embraced my inner warrior

Until I came to realize

As I painted my eyes

My inner light I no longer had to hide.

Effeminate, with dry wit

Conservatives will never comprehend it

Creeps poisoned me like arsenic

Old men couldn’t take my innocence

Now, I’m the baddest bitch!

You don’t know the half

This shit get real

Nancy boys giving blowjobs for Louboutins

What you call that?

Head over heels (ha)

Bridge

No friends, mad family

Sixteen and so unhappy

Hook

I’ve been up all night, tryna get this rich

I’ve been work work work work working on my shit

Milked the whole game twice, gotta get it how I live

I’ve been work work work work working on my shit

Now get this work (4)

Working on my shit

Verse 3

I broke free from the bubble

Ain’t been easy

But, I stay busy creeping back from the trouble

Let go of the past

Living in the moment, what a blast

Integrity, love, and unity

I keep balanced in harmony

Eighteen, I changed for the better so

Flying with my batwings to Sassyland

Sounding like a reject marching band

As my Bubblegoth world leaves bitches aghast

My dream is all that I need

Cause it’s all that I ever had

Outro

Now get this work

Working on my shitttt

Brooke Candy

It appears this is turning into a music blog. Sorry I’m not sorry.

As my last post featured the wholesome, sweet Jewel, I think it’s only necessary to get dirty. Filthy. Disgusting, some might say. It’s high time I discuss fearless rapper Brooke Candy. And yes, that’s her birth name. Her nicknames are really fascinating, too. Freaky Princess, The Hoodrat Drew Barrymore (my fave), Lady T-H-C…makes me want a cool nickname.

Baby Brooke

Baby Brooke

I will admit I was scared of Brooke at first. She’s hyper sexual, blunt, and next level. But, with time Brooke has grown into  one of my favorite rappers, only second to her (and my) idol Lil’ Kim. The Queen Bee just can’t be topped.

Brooke has had a crazy life. Growing up, her father was the CFO of Hustler magazine, which exposed her to sex at a young age. Brooke is also a former stripper. She says she made good money and it prepared her for performing on stage. That experience clearly influenced her personal style and music videos. Raunchy is an understatement. Brooke interned for celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, too. Bananas. It doesn’t sound like Brooke was too fond of her, though…

Brooke first gained recognition in indie artist Grimes’ music video for the song “Genesis”. In her long pink braids, shiny warrior armor, and sassy platforms, Brooke was hard to miss. I first heard of her from singer Kerli. She referred to Brooke as her evil twin and I would say that’s very accurate. They both include fantasy and cyber elements in their fashion. Brooke tends to wear less clothing, naturally.

Kerli and Brooke be friends

Honesty is really important to me in music. Straight up, I don’t like artists who don’t write their own shit. I just don’t have any respect for them. That’s why Brooke is a breath of fresh air. She doesn’t censor her raps in any way and refuses to sign to a major label that wants to change her. Her goal is to make it into the mainstream as an independent artist and I believe she can do it with the support of her fans, lovingly referred to as FagMob.

Brooke means no disrespect by using the terms “fag” or “slut” in her raps. She’s actually a lesbian as well as a feminist and wants to reclaim insults and flip them into compliments. That’s really admirable. Brooke’s bringing back female rap that empowers and supports women’s rights, just like Lil’ Kim and Khia. Even if her music is sexual, it’s not degrading to women. Brooke is telling women to be in control of their bodies and make their own rules. That’s clear in her song “Pussy Make The Rules”.

Love her or hate her, Brooke’s here to stay. We would totes be friends.

I seem to be in party/fun mode lately and I’m loving it. Not taking life too seriously and just appreciating the moment. As such, I wanted to share some of my favorite female rappers who like to have a good time, too. No basic bitches allowed.

Kreayshawn

I fell for Kreayshawn when her song “Gucci Gucci” blew up in 2011. Yeah, her lyrics aren’t deep and she likes to smoke weed,  but you can’t deny she goes hard…like real hard.

Lady Sovereign

I’ve been a fan of Lady Sovereign for years. She’s so tiny and unique. Lady Sovereign is openly a lesbian and she criticizes stereotypical female gender roles in her lyrics, which is awesome. Oh yeah, and if “So Human” sounds familiar to you, that’s because it samples The Cure’s song “Close to Me”. Just another reason why Lady Sovereign is way cool.

Colette Carr

I would liken Colette to Ke$ha’s little sister with a little less sleaze and lots of spunk. She appears sweet and innocent, but Colette can hold her own with her rhymes. I find it interesting that she used to be a competitive tennis player, but had to quit due to an injury. Just goes to show that roadblocks in life can lead to even bigger successes.

Die Antwoord

This South African rap group is so strange. And I love it. Yo-Landi and Ninja both have serious rap skills, but I particularly like Yo-Landi. There’s something oddly childlike about her and her foul mouth throws me off. It’s also super rad that Die Antwoord uses three different languages in their songs, blending them together very well. Their visuals are off the chain, too.

Brooke Candy

Brooke is one filthy girl. I adore her look, though. Most epic hair ever! I’m also slightly afraid of her. Brooke is a stripper as well as a rapper and nudity is no big deal for her. She definitely doesn’t have a filter. Sorry if you have sensitive ears! Brooke Candy just doesn’t give a fuck.

And there you have my fierce picks for female rap. While rap is not my favorite genre of music, I do quite enjoy it and have dabbled in it myself. You never know what you might excel at until you give it a try!

I’m now going back to partying like a rockstar. 😉
