Last year Brookly Babs and co-host Vague had a very successful run with their ‘Queen Of The Ring’ battle league. The battles became a huge success and brought in some big crowds to witness the first all female battles live. We recently spoke with Babs earlier on in the year where she discussed this project and the future of the battle league hopefully making it onto TV bringing it to more audiences. Check out below after the jump as Babs and her team are back and this time Ms Hustle is battling O-Red a male at that….. can she do it? check it out and also if you missed our interview with babs check that out also!
As much beef as Lil’ Kim gets into over the years whether it’s with Eve, Foxy Brown, Remy Ma or Nicki Minaj, Kim loves female unity. Proven with her 1997 hit ‘Ladies Night’ featuring Hot 97’s Angie Martinez, Missy Elliot, Da Brat and the late Left Eye and also back in 2001 with her Grammy winning song ‘Lady Marmalade’ with Pink, Christina Aguilera and Mya and also lets not forget that Total Remix for ‘No One Else’ featuring Lil’ Kim, Da Brat and Foxy Brown. Well once again Kim is proving that she is not about the beef and in fact is more interested in unity amongst the females in Hip Hop by inviting Pepa, Eve and Missy to joint her in the Bronx, NY last night for her stop on her ‘Return Of The Queen’ Tour. Watch some video footage below and I’m also hearing friend to the site Brooklyn Babs was in the building #GoodLooks

So what do you do when one of your family members is in the hospital and you have an interview booked with BlackWall Street artist Mysonne, Simple you conduct a telephone interview straight from the hospital, And that is exactly what i did on saturday afternoon. I was extremely privileged that Mysonne still agreed to have the interview at that time and on that day as he held the interview literally after just getting home from Rick Ross‘ Birthday celebrations in NYC with French Montana. Mysonne was extremely tired but did not hesitate to answer questions about his career and more. Mysonne who previously had links with Dmx and Ruff Ryders before his 7 year prison term in 1999 discussed his trip to London with The Game who he is signed too on Blackwall Street, Doing the Cypher with Brooklyn Babs Bunny who we interviewed also last week, His Money Gang situation, His beef with Lil’ B and XXL and last but not lease his Love for Lil’ Kim who welcomed him into the game. here is an excerpts from the interview:
SS: In Regards to Common vs Drake as Common is stating that Hip Hop is too sweet. You recently had a little talking with Lil’ B, He was on the cover of XXL and many people felt he shouldn’t have been on the cover, You publicly said he shouldn’t have been on the cover so what do you think about the state of Hip Hop in regards to being too sweet and certain rappers out there?
M: My thing is this it’s not about….There’s always gone be different artist that do things, Just think that the Hip Hop era, The Hip Hop community is only putting certain artist to the forefront, before you had a different outlet for every type of artist, you used to listen to the radio there was 5 or 6 different type of artists, Now every artist is in the same category as Drake, You have Big Sean, Drake, J. Cole all these type of artist are alike, All these artist to a certain degree do the same thing. They are all dope artist i like them all the music but i just wanna hear a variety, To hear artist that talk about what they don’t talk about. You know i wanna hear artist that talk about where I’m from, The struggle, everybody is not Rich, Everybody is not popping bottles in the club and f*cking models like that is not everybody’s reality. You turning the common person away from Hip Hop when Hip Hop was made for us to talk about our reality…….. When you promote one type of artist and one type of music in Hip Hop to me is a discredit and then for you to put people like Lil’ B in the category of Hip Hop period to me you making people look at us like we a joke….. When you promote someone with absolutely no talent then call him the future of what we do is diminishing the value of Hip Hop.
Listen to the full audio below from the interview with Mysonne NY General and say Somethin’ Where he also names his top 5 rappers of all times dead or alive!
Brooklyn Babs Aka Babs Bunny chopped it up with Say Somethin’ while on her promotion tour for ‘Queen Of The Ring’. During the interview Babs talks candidly about her new projects including her Mixtapes ‘Wave Music’ ‘Astronomical’ and ‘Back 2 Life’ and her movement in pushing female hip hop to the limit in the Worlds first ever all female battle league ‘Queen Of The Ring’
“No Cup Cake Rhyming I put Them Out With Some Of The Dudes Out Here Today”
Make no mistake Babs is a force not to be reckoned with as she proves below in her Twitter freestyle:
Babs discussed her friendship with Mysonne (Who we will also be interviewing on Saturday) while speaking on the cypher which caused quite a buzz on World star Hip hop a few years back
“I Like To Get In A Cypher With The Dudes Cause I Like To Show My Skills, I Love Female Rappers But I really Don’t Wanna Be In A Cypher With 6 Of Them Sh*t’s, Like I Wanna Be In A Cypher With 6 Other Dudes And I Just Destroy All Of Em”
As she stated above it’s hard for most female rappers to make it in the music industry but since the success of Nicki many industry people are more inclined to sign new females to their roster.
