After a decade of a government imposed drug war on the Black community, the 90's took a darker turn. Once colorful and vibrant videos, were replaced by gray and stoic images of life in the hood. Female emcees not to be outdone by their male counterparts "kept it real" by asserting a newfound independence mostly due to mass incarceration of Black men. This collection includes a perspective from women in a "90's kind of world" exploring cheating, sexual role reversal and a new hood heroine commonly referred to as a "Gangsta Bitch." Some of the songs are just plain fun and illuminate a generation of emcees that raised the bar when it came to bars.
