Lady Sovereign is a UK "Grime" artist. As many who have seen her and/or heard her music, her target listeners are chavs and her lyrics represent this with such memorable lines such as:
"You was staring at me like to say i was ginger"
And who can forget:
"I was dishing out out the same dirty looks trust me your the minger"
Aside from these mindblowingly thoughtful lyrics, her background is as to be expected. Born in 1987, she was raised in the ChalkHill Estates, a set of Council House flats. As for qualifications, she is significantly lacking...any.
A fine selection of Lyrics from Lady Sovereign's song "Sad Ass Stripah"
You was born in a caravan,
That don't make you ghetto
I seen more ghetto in posh spice's stelleto
You chat like a blonde but i swear your a brunette
When's your carrer endin'?
Jenny from da block more like jenny from a flock of pidgeons
What class A drug did they put in it?
Chicken- all spazin out in the video like you're trippin'
Incase your mum gave birth while she was strippin'
Shuka Shake, shake the brake your hips and fall out of your caravan right into a ditch, bitch!
A fascinating but, unfortunately it seems, moribund form of radio broadcasting that utilizes radio frequencies from about 1,800 kHz to 30,000 kHz. Some say that the Internet is totally to blame for shortwave's demise, but in fact there are many other reasons: poor propagation conditions (e.g. coronal flares on the Sun that can block radio reception for many days), mismanagement and bad frequency allocation by the stations themselves, transmitters in disrepair, lack of funding for the stations, radio frequency interference caused by various appliances that create walls of noise when one is listening for stations, etc. On shortwave, one can often hear interesting cultural programs and music produced by the host country, and some shortwave listeners have created a hobby-within-a-hobby of collecting "QSL" (verification of reception) cards, pennants, CDs, books, etc.
Back in the late 1970's, I loved to listen to Radio Tahiti on my shortwave receiver.
|3.||Hip Hop Music|
Hip hop music, also referred to as rap or rap music, is a style of popular music which came into existence in the United States during the mid-1970s, and became a large part of modern pop culture during the 1980s. It consists of two main components: rapping (MCing) and DJing (audio mixing and scratching). Along with hip hop dance (notably breakdancing) and urban inspired art, or notably graffiti, these compose the four elements of hip hop, a cultural movement that was initiated by inner-city youth, mostly African Americans in New York City, in the early 1970s.more...
Typically, hip hop music consists of intensely rhythmic lyrical form making abundant use of techniques like assonance, alliteration, and rhyme. The rapper is accompanied by an instrumental track, usually referred to as a "beat", performed by a DJ, created by a producer, or one or more instrumentalists. This beat is often created using a sample of the percussion break of another song, usually a funk or soul recording. In addition to the beat other sounds are often sampled, synthesized, or performed. Sometimes a track can be instrumental, as a showcase of the skills of the DJ or producer.
Hip hop began in The Bronx, located in New York City, when DJs began isolating the percussion break from funk and disco songs. The early role of the MC was to introduce the DJ and the music and to keep the audience excited. MCs began by speaking between songs, giving exhortations to dance, greetings to audience members, jokes an...
The word Goon is a relatively new term that has recently spread from an arena generally only used by rappers and those in the African-American culture, to all races and ethnic areas.more...
In a pop culture sense, "goon," has been used in many popular songs by artists who are quite famous.
Rapper Brisco, among others, uses the term to describe himself and his friends from a particular region of Miami in his song featuring Lil' Wayne "I'm in tha Hood": "Opa-Locka Goons!"
Thus we see the definition of "goon" being applied in a geographic sense, identifying a group of people from a certain region with a set of shared characteristics or habits.
"Goon," primarily through the lyrics of rapper Plies, has begun to take on a similar, but new meaning to Brisco's usage. Plies is a rapper notorious for being the tough guy on the block, the "G" who has never snitched, and is going home to his "Bust it Baby" in one piece or in a casket. Plies persistent use of the word to describe his large group of thugs has caught on in a humorous sense with rap-listeners and non-listeners alike.
With the advent of the word being used in a such a serious manner, it has grown to describe a variety of people and individual characteristics.
A goon can be a thug - someone who you know at any given time could rob a conveinence store for you.
Ex: "That kid's a goon - I wouldn't mess with his girl bro."
A goon can be someone who acts goofy, strange, or simply humorously during inappropriate...
