Music Feed: There's Something About Iggy

Earlier this week Rah Digga spoke out about Iggy Azalea when asked in a radio interview. She questioned Iggy's authenticity as a rapper and her connections to Hip Hop in general. This wouldn't be the first time Iggy's authenticity was questioned. Just a few months ago outspoken singer K. Michelle came out of the woodworks questioning why Iggy sounds the way she does. I can't remember Iggy ever responding to the question but she did comment on Rah Digga's comments shortly after the interview made the rounds. Azealia Banks called out Iggy Azalea as well when she noted that a lyric was deemed racist. Azealia also became upset when Iggy made XXL's coveted Freshman 14 list, where the magazine boasts the up and coming rappers to look out for. What's funny is that Azealia Banks' words struck a nerve with T.I. but apparently not with the other ladies who have said things. Of course Azealia took offense when T.I. became involved in the war of words between the two rappers. But why hasn't T.I. came out and responded to K. Michelle, or Rah Digga or even Nicki Minaj. Something tells me he doesn't want it with them broads. They would read him for filth! I'm just saying! I mean Azealia practically did anyway. Perhaps one of the biggest insults Iggy has faced was when Nicki Minaj accepted her 2014 BET Award for Best Female Rapper. Nicki began rambling on when she stated the "every rhyme you hear Nicki Minaj spit, she wrote". Some felt that those words were directed towards Iggy but why? You won the award not Iggy. Many felt that Nick was feeling some kind of way because another successful emcee was nipping at her heels. Nicki would later downplay what her speech meant much like Rah Digga did when she explained herself more in detail after he comments. I always thought Iggy wrote her own rhymes. I never questioned it only because there was this assumption by me that all the new girls wrote their rhymes. Iggy's popularity continues to be on the rise as she's landed high profile gigs on albums from Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Lopez in recent months. Lil' Kim wants to work with Iggy as does Remy Ma. Apparently Iggy is doing something right which is why I say "There's Something About Iggy". Stay tuned!

Album Spotlight: Ne-Yo - In My Own Words

It's probably starting to look like a Ne-Yo fan site here with all the recent posts mentioning him; but I assure you it is not. The hype behind Ne-Yo's debut album; "In My Own Words" reached a fever pitch thanks to the debut single; "So Sick". The song was a huge success including its singles; "Sexy Love", "When Ur Mad" and more.

Ne-Yo definitely plays up on his buzz by writing and producing many of the tracks. This album would lead to Ne-Yo being a very sought after songwriter and producer. It is the album of his I favor the most. I think as he progressed as an artist; I somewhat lost interest.

*UPDATED* Music Feed: Janet Jackson's Most Sexualized Songs: REVISITED

You all, my readers, my visitors; my supporters; you have made this post one of the most successful posts on my blog. I kept wondering what it was about this post, that made it so successful; one word: JANET! The fact that Janet has new music on the way makes this post even more of a hot topic. As its been said before, no one sings about sex quite like Janet Jackson. Her songs, ooze with the right amount of sexuality perfect for a night of steamy sex. Take a look back at a number of songs Janet is responsible for delivering her in trademark breathy delivery. I took the liberty of adding a few other songs that didn't make the list before. 

"Warmth"
This song begins with echos of Janet saying "...in my mouth". By then you should already know what this song is about. Janet sings about the "warmth" of her mouth and how she pleases her lover; Jermaine Dupri at the time. This is a very sensual song and it is one of the most explicit Janet has ever recorded …

Album Spotlight: Beyonce - Dangerously In Love

If you were in love in 2003, it wasn't official unless you were living "Dangerously In Love". It was the title of Beyonce's 2003 breakthrough solo album which spawned the singles, "Crazy In Love" featuring Jay-Z, "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul, "Me, Myself, and I", and the title track. The album would serve as a precursor of what was to come from this bonafide superstar. Unlike her later albums, "Dangerously" was deep-rooted in southern soul and R&B melodies. This album also showed a more gentler, sultry, and relaxed(voice wise) Beyonce. As opposed to the last few years her style has been more abrasive and in your face. Never one to be outdone, Beyonce was set to release a follow-up to this album titled, "Dangerously In Love 2" featuring unreleased songs but it didn't happen. From the seductive "Speechless" to the cautionary tale of "Me, Myself, and I", "Dangerously In Love" is m…
