From the New York Times:
The New York Times is a piece of shit, especially in its music writing. For those readers who don’t know the story of Bhad Babie, this front page clipping makes it look all positivie. First off it’s described as Big Business, and America loves big business.
In addition, the description of Bhad Babie transforming from a trouble teenager to having a major label record deal sounds like a Cinderella story.
Bhad Babie is what’s wrong with America. She is now 14-15 years old but she came to prominence virally for going on Dr. Phil and off handedly talking in ebonics about whoring herself out to audience members with the catchphrase ‘Cash me outside how bout dat?’ She talks smack to her moms and is generally a pain in the ass but hypersexualized. And the money to be made off her would be nothing without the hypersexualization of her body and personality.
Of course, major labels see all the free publicity she’s already generated for herself and they sign her to a deal. Not because she has skills but because she’s already made herself known with her crossover whore routine. And they put out her first single which is clipped below and is not really a Cinderella story, it’s a cynically corporate move to cash in on a R-rated almost girl.
If you check out this video Bhad Babie has been pimped and is pimping at the very same time — images of guns, of Bad Bhabie’s body, BMWs, all of the classic hardcore rap images. At the core of the tune Bhabie is denouncing other women, these heaux, who she is not like at all — though she kinda has a legacy of being whorish.
The only intelligence that has been shown in the saga of Bhad Babie is the person who thought they could take her and make a profit off her. That’s the only creativity here and it’s very cynical and transactional creativity.
And the New York Times makes all of this legit without mentioning any of it! It’s big business and a ‘troubled teenager’ who is now a major label rapper. It reeks of the efforts of a music publicist spinning the shit out of a piece of shit.
