Both B.G. and C-Murder have represented The South their whole career. I know I am not speaking just for myself when I say the fans want to see them flourish and rise again. They have contributed heavily to Hip-Hop with their respective groups and their solo careers. I know when they are granted their freedom...I am not saying if because they should be free one day. B.G. and C-Murder's cases make me reflect on just how much Black bodies are not protected or respected. We are often sentenced with the harshest time, killed, beaten, or forgotten. Yet, our culture is the most impactful to be repackaged, dissected, and copied for a profit or aesthetic. No matter how much they try to erase, re-write, and study, our presence will always be felt. B.G. and C-Murder will be released one day soon...I am sure of it.
Overall, I would like to extend all praise to The Mackies and their beautiful family. They are NOT relationship goals...they are a model for an upstanding union between two people in front of the world. Remy Ma and Papoose have stood the test of time through the industry, imprisonment, and lively strife. Black Love most certainly equals Remy Ma and Papoose.
Journey how the hell do you go from talking about The Sims to Female Rappers that dominated in the early 1990s to the early 2000s? Said no one ever. These women speak to me in many ways and not because their risqué lyrics speak to my Scorpio nature. Okay, maybe just a little...but it was their confidence, talent, and alpha female energy that truly influenced me. They were not afraid to take risks with their looks, lyrics, and everything else. I admired their bravery as teenagers just tryna figure it out while being in front of the world.
