Lil Poopy Is A 9-Year-Old Rapper Who Slaps Adult Woman’s Ass In Music Video

Nine-years-old is apparently old enough for pint-sized actress Quvenzhané Wallis to be called a c**t.

So why not let a nine-year-old rapper called Lil Poopy slap an adult woman’s ass in his music video for “Pop That Remix”? Childhood — who needs it?

Ugh. When the fuck did we stop letting children

The Best “Law & Order” Ancillary Character Ever

Okay, so maybe over the holiday weekend I got waylaid by a “Law & Order: SVU” marathon. The plot of this particular episode is sort of beside the point, but I’ll tell you anyway — it’s a ripped-from-the-headlines story abut a bunch of girls who make a pregnancy pact and a crazy mother (played by…

“Same Love” By Macklemore & Ryan Lewis: A Rap/Short Film Supporting Marriage Equality

I can’t change / even if I wanted to
Such is the chorus for “Same Love,” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, featuring Mary Lambert, a new song released this summer which was released in a short film today. I want to say the rap is pro-gay marriage or even pro-gay rights, but really both…

Common Reads Poetry At The White House, Sarah Palin Whines About It

Sarah Palin, the mother of the world’s most famous plastic surgery laden, reality show-starring teen mom, pitched a fit this week because First Lady Michelle Obama invited the hip hop artist/actor/poet, Common, to perform poetry at the White House.

Lil B Titles Album “I’m Gay,” Receives Major Backlash

The hip hop world isn’t exactly known for being gay-friendly, what with the frequent homophobic rhymes and someone like 50 Cent going as far as to joke, “I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding” on Twitter. So it was a pretty bold move when rapper Lil B announced last week that his new…

That Gwyneth Paltrow, She’s Such A Gangsta

“I went to L.A. the summer between my junior and senior year of high school and I discovered N.W.A which became my obsession.

Get Your Rap Lesson On

The other day, The Frisky’s resident hip-hop head responded to an email saying she was glad she wouldn’t have to “pour out some bubbly” to a feature that might have gone the way of the dinosaurs. This was obviously a reference to the ’90s hip-hop classic “Gangsta Lean,” except this writer prefers champagne to 40…

Is Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” Really A Perfect Album?

Kanye West is many things — an egomaniac, brilliant, pompous, crazy; an a**hole; a douchebag; an artist; a Grammy winner. Well, now he can add “Perfect Score On Pitchfork” to his resume. The notoriously snotty online music mag gave Kanye’s new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (which dropped yesterday), a perfect 10.0 when they…

Jay-Z Regrets His Representation Of Women In Past Lyrics

“Some [lyrics] become really profound when you see them in writing. Not ‘Big Pimpin.’ That’s the exception. It was like, I can’t believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing? Reading it is really harsh … We have to find our way back to true…

We Like: Rap Songs Celebrating Smart Ladies

Let’s face it: rap and hip-hop are not known for being particularly lady-friendly. (Ludacris’ “Move Bitch,” anyone?) That’s why we especially love Flavorwire’s collection of rap odes to smart women. Like The Roots’ track, “You Got Me,” featuring Erykah Badu. In it, Black Thought praises his girl: “She taking classes abroad/She studying film and…

Roxanne’s Revenge: Former Hip-Hop Artist Doesn’t Get Angry, She Gets A PhD

Some stories make me want to run through the streets screaming “Take that ‘the man’!” This is one of them. Before Salt-N-Peppa were pushin’ it and Lil’ Kim was blowing your mind with her dirty bird lyrics, Roxanne Shante was blowing up the airwaves with her single “Roxanne’s Revenge.” She was just 14 at…
