    I LOVE this kid, I first became familiar with her via NPR's Tiny Desk concert series, she's truly a poet who elevates the CRAFT of rapping with actual lyrical substance. and is a gift to thinking people who love music.

    Check out No name's album too. It's got a De La Soul, Common, Diggable Planets, ATCQ kind of vibe to it.

      Why is people so obsessed with the idea of women being a certain way. You always like to say shit like: "Finally a rapper who doesn't show her ass and tits", like, okay? The fact that an artist decides to portrait a sexy image doesn't mean they don't respect themselves or don't have talent. Let women do what they want, if they want to show skin, great! If they don't, great! It's THEIR business and it has nothing to do with their talent.

      My opinion if you don’t like it don’t comment 🤡 even thou she clearly said in an interview she was done making music/performing because her fans/crowd were mainly white. She mad racist, if a white person said that black people would have a strike over it. So as I said RACIST BITCH

  • guy on a gravitron machine standing sideways

    Ofc Daily Show would invite a racist black girl on their show. It fits their character.

      @Eric Kariuki Lemme guess, not wanting to hang out with black people because they're black, that's racist, but not wanting to hang out with white people because they're white is common sense.

      @blue robot last time I checked, racist means being prejudiced towards another race. And last time I checked, not wanting to associate with white people, because they're white, is racist my dude.

    notice how he positions his hand for a handshake. it is underneath her hand. he shows a lot of respect, not only with his words. the last book i read was "was man von hier aus sehen kann". very well written, a bit too romantic but worth the time. also "das haus der treppen" "ein schatten wie ein leopard" and "es geschah im nachbarhaus" .. ahh and "andorra" were some books that had an impact on me. don't know the english titles.
