What’s better than Amy Poehler? Amy Poehler rapping? Amy Poehler rapping with Tina Fey and Lindsay Lohan dancing in the background? Yep. This exists.This clip of Amy Poehler trying to rap the infamous "Kevin G" rap from Mean Girls during rehearsal for the movie recently surfaced on YouTube. Although Poehler is adorable, she fails to complete the rap again and again. (Which some may argue makes her more adorable.) Fey and Lohan’s back up ... Read More

Iggy Azalea may be the newest larger than life female on the rap scene, but her videos tend to favor the pint-sized. She went viral for her video for her song "PU$$Y," in which what loos like a six-year-old kid clings to her neck. If he hung around the set long enough, he could hear lines like "pussy illy, wetter than the Amazon, taste this kitty" or "taste the rainbow, here's my Skittles." Not exactly age appropriate, but more like a premature lesson in sex-ed. ... Read More

Primarily known as the live DJ and creative partner of Sissy Bounce rapper Big Freedia, Lazer also has some sweet solo spins that are worth getting familiar with. Combining an eclectic range of genres and cultures from the streets of his hometown, Lazer’s sets promise everything from '50s twists to '70s soul and R&B. ... Read More

If you didn’t already know, Childish Gambino is the rapping alter-ego of Community star Donald Glover. His newest mixtape, Royalty, dropped yesterday, and it features RZA, Ghostface Killa, and Beck. But it's the voice who ends Royalty that really has us BUST-ies excited. The fabulous Tina Fey appears on the final track, “Real Estate,” spitting some sick rhymes. With her classically awkward style, Fey half-raps “We droppin’ racks ... Read More
Femcees have a hard time in the hip-hop game. The industry seems to think that it can only acknowledge the work of one female rapper at a time--and each new one gets compared to Nicki Minaj, no matter how little the two have in common. Though female rappers are often treated shittily, talented new acts are popping onto the scene every day. One of my current favorites is Nitty Scott, a Brooklyn-based rapper who spits ridiculous, clever, and insightful bars. Watch ... Read More
In repulsive news of the day, The Game, formerly of 50 Cent’s G-Unit, spat on female fans in Australia:

The allegedly grown-ass man leaned over a railing and spat on a couple of curious fans, bringing to mind the question, "Who the hell does this idiot think he is?" Of course, this isn't his first offense; gossip site Necole Bitchie (sigh) confirms that he and his crew are notoriously disrespectful ... Read More

For ladies who love ladies, pop music can be kind of a downer. All the sexy divas sing about their boy toys and not about their gal pals (Katy Perry definitely does not count. I don’t care if she kissed a girl, nor if she liked it). Don’t get me wrong, I love Tegan and Sara just as much as the next grrrl. The Indigo Girls, too, have been known to provide some solid support in my times of desperate emotional need. Sometimes, though, the vibe I’m ... Read More
