Jacki-O 

Poe Little Rich Girl

A former phone-sex seductress, Miami rapper Jacki-O takes her vision of yoni power to the next level on her funk-tight debut, Poe Little Rich Girl. On hold for more than a year due to label-contract hell (following the runaway success of her first single, "Nookie"), the hotly anticipated release presents such take-charge titles as "Gangsta Bitch," "Somebody's Getting Fucked," and the anthemic "Pussy (Real Good)," on which the Southern belle drawls, "She my best friend/ She keeps it real/ I love my pus-sy/ Pussy pay my bills." Not since Li'l Kim has hip hop had such an upfront ho, who's skilled with her tongue in more ways than one. She rhymes lickety-split on the sweetness of her "Sugar Walls" ("Filled with your cream") and on "Sexxy Dance" downshifts to a sultry R&B whisper. On the intro to the radio-ready "Ghetto World" she explains, "I'm just a girl that's tryin' to stay afloat." But the personal is political -- and Jacki-O's not afraid to bare her booty for the cause.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
