"Monie Love is my favorite female rapper of all time. She's also one the swiftest female rapper's in Hip-Hop history alongside Queen Latifah on her "Nature Of A Sista" record which is spectacular by the way. As long as i've listened to 80's Hip-Hop have I ever heard or witnessed a female rapper who's as quick as Monie or Latifah on the MIC. Monie Love is not a hardcore rapper and she doesn't curse and still gets her point across without sounding innocent. She's more on the lines of 'Salt N' Pepa', Run DMC, De La Soul & Queen Latifah. Her songs are more focused on 'The art' of rap and how it's done, the activity versus topics, battling or putting down other emcee's which is not bad but it's just not her thing. I rated this album 5 stars 'cause lets face it, she's talented, and i'm fascinated at the speed she spits without ever stumbling or getting tongue tied. It sucks that her career was short-lived, only two albums long to be exact. I really enjoyed this album and still blast it like the day it came out."
Monie showed a lot of promise on Ladies First..........

"Monie outshined Latifah on Ladies First, so there were high expectations for Monie's debut. Then she dropped "Down 2 Earth" which was totally left field except for the classic single "Monie in the Middle" and my personal favorite "It's a Shame" featuring the classic Spinners sample."
