Tiffany Foxx “Yellow Tape”

 

STL’s own Tiffany Foxx (@1TiffanyFoxx on Twitter)  who is one third of the all female rap trio June 5th dropped her mixtape “Yellow Tape” at midnight last night T. Foxx is no rookie to the rap game, the St. Louis native who was given her chance by everybody’s favorite “play uncle” Snoop Dogg has worked with some major players in the entertainment scene, Lil’ Kim (who is featured on Foxx’s song “Jay-Z), Plies,and Akon. “Yellow Tape” features production from Zaytoven and Big Fraze and has features from Lola Monroe and Shawty Low. The highly anticiapted mixtape offers hope that female rap artists are still very much alive. The blonde bombshell who was in St. Louis this past weekend for her mixtape release party along with Trina is a favorite of mine. Congrats Tiff!

STL STAND UP

For a long time reports of Nelly not supporting his home team of up and coming artist have buzzed not only the underground STL music scence but the industry as a whole. After his little “issue” with Huey, a lot of St. Louis artist wrote Nelly off and selfish and someone who only looks out for who he wants ie; The Lunatics. Well as I last blogged St. Louis based female rap group June 5th recently released their video “Dollaz” being the Twitter bugs that we all are the major promotion for the video was done via tweets. My entire timeline was full of tweets and retweets (sorry for all those not hip to the twitter lingo) of nothing but June 5th. But out of all the retweets only one stood out to me it was this “@June5th Video Dollaz!!!!! http://t.co/w917kZQ via @worldstarhiphop via Twitter for BlackBerry® ” straight from @Nellymo himself! I think time stood still for a brief moment. This was major! It not only showed that the group was making noise but it showed that Nelly isn’t all for self. Hard work and grind recognizes the same in others and Nelly obviously recognized in this group of hard working ladies. With that STL STAND UP!!!

Making HERstory

When I walked into Black on Black studios in the Summer of 2007 and scanned the room full of people my eyes locked on the three ladies sitting in the corner closest to the door. One was tall, light skinned with a shape out of this world, she was pretty in the face but it wasn’t any of those things that caught my attention, it was the blue bandanna she had tied around her head. The other was a little shorter, brown skin wearing a pair of stretch pants and an oversized t-shirt. (I think she had on some Princess Reeboks and ball socks too. j/p) the smallest of the three was my height (all of 5’2) with thick hips, and brown skin. Just regular chicks right??? WRONG! Little did I know that these three women were anything but regular! They were a rap trio from different backgrounds with totally different personalities with ONE thing in common, their LOVE for music and hip hop…I have learned these girls (who by the way are known to me as Tiffany, Brooke and Scar) and since that summer in 2007 fell in love with them, being adopted as the “little” sister of the group I will always support them! You can also check them out at http://theredbottomdarlings.tumblr.com/ .Their song “Worst Day” will forever be my anthem! Here is a look at my big sisters JUNE FIFTH doing their thang in their newest video “Dollaz” IT’S HERstory that’s being made!
