Dirty Mouth Female Rappers

"Before Lil Kim or Foxy Brown , there was BWP, B*tches With Problems. This duo talked about stuff that women talk about behind closed door. Periods were not off limits. The song Cotex is hilarious with one half of the group shouting, "B.... go change your Cotex," referring to a female funking it up. They talked about child support, deadbeat boyfriends, and cash. "Is the P Still Good," is about just what it sounds. I think the girl in the song gives the guy some and then puts him out. This group's biggest hit was "Two Minute Brother." The video was hilarious. They got a little more national exposure when their song "We Want Money," was featured in the Leslie Harris film "Just Another Girl on the I.R.T." I really don't know what happened to this group. This album really is an early 90's classic and people don't give BWP the credit they deservie. They were foul mouth and confident when a lot of the other early 90's female rappers were either on the concious tip, the crossover tip, or just on something different. Trailblazers, wonder what happened to them. This album is worth a listen if you never heard it.
Music for the ladies

"Oh my god! This album rocks my soul. If you like other girl rappers (especially the really dirty ones) this is bound to be your new favorite album. Everybody that I play this for falls in love instantly."
Good for humor and shock value

"Seems like militant feminist rap...until you read the liner notes and find out that most of the lyrics were written by a man, which pretty much deflates any uppity women pride thing (see previous review). But without analyzing whether it's a result of embarrassment, horror, shock, or empathy, you're going to laugh out loud at this hard-core extravaganza."
