DOWNLOAD MP3 TomCaruana-GotYourMoney.mp3
Summary: Mashup Madness
About Artist: I have no clue who Tom Caruana is but you can check out his site here. The Beatles are a rock group from the UK (maybe you’ve heard of them). Ol’ Dirty Bastard was a member of the Wu Tang Clan. Kelis is an R&B singer best known for her single Milkshake
About Song: This song is a mashup between the Beatles ‘You Never Give Me Your Money” and “Got Your Money”. It is off of a project made by Tom Caruana called “Wu-Tang Vs. The Beatles: Enter the Magical Mystery Chambers” (a play on the album Magical Mystery Tour and 36 Chambers)
The mix itself is the best part. But I also really like the part at 1:28 where ODB finishes his verse and it goes into the chorus

DOWNLOAD MP3 IggyAzalea-Work.mp3
Summary: Something to get you over the hump this Wednesday.
About Artist: Iggy Azalea is a rapper from Australia. She first gained prominence when one of her promo songs Pu$$y went viral on youtube, which is a Iggy song that I also really like. While I do like a lot of the beats she raps on and she does have a lot of skills it sucks that basically she’s taken the route of marketing herself as a hypersexualized female body. I don’t know much about FKi but you can check out there youtube channel in the links at the bottom of this post.
About Song: This song is the single off of Iggy Azalea’s upcoming april EP also called work. Her debut album The New Classic is due out some time this summer.
I dunno what part I like best. I like the track and I like her rap. There isn’t one single part that really sticks out at me but I guess I really like the way the song was put together in the chorus and the way it flows from verse to chorus and back.
Summary: As per wikipeida “International Women’s Day, originally called International Working Women’s Day, is marked on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social achievements. ”
Below I’ve collected several youtube videos from Hip-Hop feMCs from around the globe. My knowledge or international hip-hop is sorely lacking so any suggestions of other foreign hip-hop females is more than welcome.
Hopefully the videos below show just how diverse and global the hip hop movement is and how Women in hip hop have such a important role than the sex objects they are allowed to play in mainstream American hip hop.
Happy International Women’s Day. #FuckThePatriarchy

DOWNLOAD MP3 MIA-BadGirlsMNARSRemixftAzealiaBanksMissyElliott.mp3
Summary: Wombyn Represent! Today is International Women’s Day, so I thought it’d be a nice time to reflect on how women are so under-represented in hip-hop, but also how Fcking Baddass some of those FEMCs are. Shout out to women across the world!
About Artist: M.I.A is a British artist with ties to Sri Lanka. Her music is all over the place with a cacophony of different sounds. Basically she’s a badass and I love her. Azealia Banks is a somewhat underground young up and coming rapper/singer. Sadly there is almost no room for female hip-hop artist at the top but I hope she can rise through the ranks cause I think she’s super cool too. Missy Elliot is Hip Hop’s B-Girl Queen. While seemingly past her prime at this point (you know how women’s careers get shut down early) Missy Elliot still kills it. Dancing, singing, rapping, Missy Elliot does it all is one of the most positive female role models in all of hip hop (in my opinion).
About Song: This song was originally released last year and sparked a number of official remixes including this one. The video for the original song was frickin awesome and I can’t say how many people wanted to show it to me when it first came out. You can really get MIA’s vibe from the video.
This remix is HOT! M.I.A. does her thing, Missy Elliot puts her style and attitude on the track, and then Azealia Banks comes in and just straight Kills It!

DOWNLOAD MP3 Tyga-RemindedftAdele.mp3
Summary: Something Soft
About Artist: Tyga runs with lil Wayne’s Young Money but he’s not really the reason this song is up here. I will say that Tyga is one of the more talented members of Young Money but this song is really made by the involvement of Adele. Now I actually don’t know hardley antying about Adele except that outside of Hip Hop she is huge. She’s won at least one grammy and the white mainstream really love her.
About Song: This song is a single off of Tyga’s upcoming mixtape Black Thought 2, which is due out April 12th.
Adele on the hook, I love her voice, but I really like melody and rhythm of it. I especially like how her voice kinda slides in the line I hate to turn out up out of the blue uninvited
