    I'm assuming most of us have heard and seen the newest rap sin-sation Khia talk about how much she likes folks licking her "neck and back as well as her p---- and crack" Is this the jam of the summer? Feeling that video? Will stretch marks and big greasy tattoos catch on?

    just wondering...I'm an NYC'er now...but I stem from Miami, FL ....what's with the music being cranked out of the dirty south???

    I hated this song at first but they play it so much I found myself actually singing along the other day...

    what's bad is...I hear little girls singing it....do they really understand what they're singing? do their parents Really no what's being jammed into their daughters head Every day....

    ohhhhhhh I HATE THAT SONG

    I agree with you 100% on that, but what do you mean by "I'm an NYC'er now...but I stem from Miami, FL ....what's with the music being cranked out of the dirty south???"... Miami is the bootay shake capital and NYC be bangin some hardcore stuff as well as the MidWest and the West Coast... I have two sons and as a parent it is my responsibility to filter the music they listen to as well as what they watch on TV.

    Yeah I hear the girls sangin they lil hearts out with the song and I also hear the lil boys rapinNotoriousBIG, SNOOP, Nelly and all that other stuff, but you ask them what they learned in school and they can't say nothing.

    If you and I got together right now and just put some straight bullschyt on a cd with some good beatz we'd sell millions.

    My two centz anyway

    i'm old!!!!

    it just came to my attention that I'm old. my local hiphop station is owned by Cathy Hughes, and RadioOne, the largest black owned media organization, in number of stations.

    well the music they play is meant for people under 18. I can't stand to listen to radio music for more than a minute.

    i didn't know about this song til recently. my sister had called me and told me that my 18 month old niece sings, or tries to sing your forementioned song. i finally heard it recently. i wasn't impressed.

    we need to make some noise. the music they feed to us, has no value. i for one, am starving for some good music.

    LOL @ story

    you have me crackin up ova here bout Miami. I too agree with you Thandiwe. I'm 28 soon to be 29 in Feb and I can't stand this music today. More than usual I am listening to the jazz station here or the other radio station that showcases neo soul, urban jazz, afro cuban, soca and music of that nature. Now I see what my mother means by racket :)

    LMAO!!! this is the last thing i'm going to say on this...before someone jumps up and says i'm hatin'

    then again, i don't care! LOL

    The funniest thing is I heard about her interview and she made the statement "When I wrote this song" I almost fell out my chair and hit my head on my desk laughing. I mean she made that statement as if she went into a room for weeks and worked hard and finally came out with a masterpiece....she was proud when she made that statement. LMAO

    LOL...i'm sorry but that probably took all of 7 minutes to scribble down on the back of a used Denny's napkin! I could imagine her talking about how Denny's is racist...lmao...but she's sitting at the table eating!

    I'm mad because they play it so much I catch myself singing along...y'all just slap me if you here me singing "Don't stop get it get it!":) ...whew! ok...enough

    I'm feeling yall with dis heah music thang. What is so amaing is it's popularity. The damage that it is doing to the self esteem of young girls is already evident. So many of them take pride in being whores, sluts and b***ches. Their dress and atitudes reflect it. Even more sadder is the fact that many of them are mothers and are feeding their small children, this poison on a daily basis. I believe in freedom of speech, but I don't believe I should have the freedom to feed poison to children in order to make money. It is sad that the black community as a whole, fully endorses the very thing (porn rap) that hurt us.

    HipHop I like, but I only listen to ones who have a real message with the beat. People like T-Bone, Grits and so forth are very good and present a message of compassion and wisdom...not violence, immoral sex and foolishness.
