From the earlier years of Hip-Hop, female emcees have worked twice as hard to stake their claim in the music industry. With huge successes for such artists like Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte and Missy Elliott, the exploitation of sexuality was not neccessary to gain success. Of course, much has changes since "U.N.I.T.Y". But, for those old enough to remeber, in the beginning of Hip-Hop's rise to prominence, it was about expectional lyrics and delivery and not a showcase of tits and ass. That is why the introduction of Resse P, a Hip-hop lyricist from Chicago, is so nostalgic and hopeful. 

 

In today's world of Hip-Hop, the exploitation of female sexuality plays a dominant role in the success of most women emcees. That is no surprize to anyone with a radio or spofity account. Refreshingly, Resse P is the antithesis of such tawdry and substanceless gimmicks. From the jump, she has refused to denigrate the craft and culture she's loved since birth. Bringing Hip-Hop back to Hip-Hop is not a cliche spouted by fledgling rappers trying to make a name. For Resse P, it is about become an influence to young female emcees wanting to express themselves without sellingout to corporate marketing ploys. "I want to do for them (young female emcees) what Mc Lyte did for me" said the Chicago native. Resse P's latest song "#MOOD" has been making headway and gaining tractions amongst industry insiders and local Djs in NY and Shy Town. Although early, she's proof that the ability to make good music and spit dope lyrics is still; and should always be sacrosant in Hip-Hop.
