M.C. Cameltoe Drops Musical Wedgie on San Francisco

In our opinion, today has already featured more than its fair share of older, white men demeaning and disenfranchising women. Nevertheless, today was the day the song "Ditzy Girls," was tweeted at us. The video features one "M.C. Cameltoe" rapping alongside two somnolent glasses wearing young things (as we can only imagine the MC would refer to them). Cameltoe makes many meaningful contributions to the anthropology of young women with comments like, "Like the wicky wicky wacka, they like their green tobacco" (the 'girls' confirm this fact through slow nodding).

The song and accompanying video are clearly tongue and cheek, but what tongue, and whose cheek? In a clever moment, one of the girls appears to rap, but the M.C.'s hoarse drone comes out instead. If this is a commentary of the silencing of women in the media and the insistence that women can be only beautiful or bright, we're all for it. There was some hope in the listless, phallic sword-fight the dancers shared over the sound of Cameltoe's monotonous rhymes. But why not subvert by letting, if not a girl, then perhaps a woman take the mic?

  • 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.'"
