Sneak Peek Recap
The first season of Oxygen’s new T.I. executive produced show Sisterhood of Hip Hop has promised to arrive with a bang. Last night the Oxygen Network presented a sneak peek with the cast of their new show. With all the hair changes, drama, a drunk momager, and the first openly gay female rapper this is sure to leave a big mark on reality tv. Now let me breakdown each cast member for you.
Ny’emiah Supreme: This 23 year old beauty hails from Queens, NewYork and is ready to conquer this industry with her fierce lyrics and NYC swag. When someone like Timbaland sits up and pays attention there has to be something special about you. I think she is definitely one of the most relatable chicks on this show. She carries a chip on her shoulder, which will be elaborated on, on the show. Let’s hope she can keep her head above the haters and reach her ultimate goal. Watch for Diamond, cause she’s coming for you girl.
Diamond: I’m crowning this ATL diva the Queen of Crunk and Turning Up, from 0 to 100 real quick! This 25 year old has been on the scene for 11 years but I’ve yet to see her make a real mark on this industry as a solo artist even though she keeps creaming about platinum hits from 500 years ago. YOU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR LAST RECORD GIRL! Maybe this will be a turning point for her. When she’s not fighting other people’s girlfriends there’s the drama involving fellow rapper/ex boyfriend Soulja Boy. Also, there seems to be a lot of tension between her and Ny’emiah Supreme, let’s see how that plays out.
SIYA: I present to you the resident lesbian femcee from Brooklyn, New York, Siya. All this chick wants is to be heard, as do all the other femcees on this show so I suggest she puts her big girl panties on and get on the grind. She’s definietly in her feelings a lot on this preview, with a crazy girlfriend to match. If she’s not fussing with her girlfriend Renee, she’s crying about not having the right support team.
Brianna Perry: Miami’s own Poe Boy Princess 22 year old Brianna Perry has arrived. When entertainers like Beyonce and Missy Elliot acknowledge your work it’s time for the world to listen. This chick is book and street smart, with a degree from UM, and a lyrical beast. But only one thing seems to be getting Ms. Brianna flustered, her momager Kiki. Brianna seems to be stuck between a rock and hard place. When your mom is your manager and things just aren’t moving smoothly, what do you do? And it doesn’t help to have momager who seems to be more preoccupied with what’s in her cup rather than making sure the sound system at her clients show is up to par. Do you see a pink slip in the near future. I doubt it, but let see how this goes.
Bia: Discovered online by Hip Hop great Pharrell, Bia is the new chick on the scene. Probably the least familiar, but she has 2 different labels interested in her so she much be doing something right. I’m not sure what her voice is yet, but I’m hoping as the episodes come we’ll hear more about her other than “I don’t want to go back to Chicago.” Pretty girl, but let’s get the ball rolling.
So there you have it, the 5 femcees trying to make their mark on this industry. I have my favorites, but this is just the sneak peek so I’ll keep my opinions til the first couple of episodes air. See you next time. #SISTERHOODOFHIPHOP
