lady sovereign sucks

[lady sovereign training for her post-rap career. i wouldn't buy an ice cream from this oh knats]

Do you want to know the real reason why Jay-Z is putting out a new album? It's not because he misses rapping and it's certainly not for his clean-water-in-Africa charity (though I'd like to point out that the AIDS crisis is probably a bit more serious than water). It's because under his watch, he allowed Def Jam to sign and release a ton of shitty artists, yet none of whom are worse than Lady Sovereign.

In case you haven't heard, Lady Sovereign is the latest of UK Grime Rap idiots to sign to a major label. She sounds like if Mike Skinner of the Streets was an even bigger girl than he already is. Anyway, she sucks. If you don't believe me, check out her myspace. It's chock full of her bullshit.

I suppose I dislike Sovereign for the same reason I didn't really care for M.I.A. It's poor rapping over shitty beats and an excuse for hipsters who are afraid of black people to like "rap" music. Only the only thing this broad has in common with Foxy Brown is that they're signed to same label. And truthfully, I probably wouldn't hate this broad so much if the guy sitting two stations behind me didn't listen to her shitty "Vertically Challenged EP" all the time, in addition to turning his computer into the Lady Sovereign shrine. Ugh.

I suspect that in a few years she will turn into Vanilla Ice -- not because she's white, but because she has all these people riding her jock right now and further down the road these same people will deny that they ever bought her shitty records. Do you want to know why? Because they will realize that she blows.

Here's a list of better female rappers worth checking out:

MC Lyte
Queen Latifah (Circa 1988-1992)
Jane Doe
Rah Digga
Suga T
