I saw this being advertised on TV. I have been meaning to watch it. I think that it can possibly be a powerful story of how a woman was able to do great things within a community that many women of color do not discuss. I am not sure why it is not discussed, I remember when I was just a youngling and watching about the "video hoes" not my words, what I remember about the program. The other details were how women were treated horribly, sexually assaulted, and other mistreatments of their person. I am not sure of these women reasonings for being in the videos, but I hope that it did not come at the price of their own self-worth.

Since then I have been unable to watch music videos were there are half-naked dancing women. This is not just limited to male singers, but also female singers. They have also jumped on using female sexuality bandwagon in a negative light. I can hope that it may change or not, but likely not. Just due to the culture of the United States, especially when it comes to women of color. This show about a female rap star is a step in the right direction in ways that women of color are treated within an industry.

she explains how niave she was, how disconnected she was, her upbringing, and that disconnect of living as normal. tbh she kind of owns it.. all in the docu and parts of the interview. its interesting.. there are 2 reasons why i believe this over the stories coming out of the deathrow camp.
the conviction in her statements and that she isnt out to gain anything from them (dre and suge), just her side. not something that most want to be brought to light, for obvious reasons..

you should check it out
