By Porscha Coleman on May 24, 2007
Format: Paperback
"Home Girls Make Some Noise" is the quintessential praise

book written with the female MC and B-girl in mind, alternating

between poetry, prose and essays about being a female of the Hip Hop

generation and culture. The essays in this anthology were well

researched and cited credible sources.

I was pleasantly surprised by

the vast number of interviews conducted with females in the Hip Hop

industry. "Home Girls Make Some Noise" does a fantastic job of

breaking feminist Hip Hop culture down to the lowest denominator.

"Home Girls" discusses lesbians and other alternative lifestyle

women and their role in hip hop culture past and present. Most of

these alternative lifestyle women complain that mainstream hip hop

has a difficult time accepting their orientation for anything other

than visual stimulation for men in rap videos. This argument was a

perfect lead into the objectification of women in rap videos. This

objectification of women in hip hop goes far beyond the video girl

and the female rapper. Female DJs from across the country and

across the globe said that they feel the pressure to prove

themselves. This pressure comes from both male and female Hip Hop

consumers alike. The pressure on females in Hip Hop is cyclical. The

industry is having a profound effect on young girls, which is fast

becoming a social problem. Girls as young as five displaying

sexually explicit dance moves in response to what they are seeing on

BET and other music video networks.

The essays are excellent. These young women have brought to light how young black females are viewed by the public. Everyone should read this book especially the one by Brittney Cooper!!!!!
