I like to think there’s a little bad bitch in all of us. I say “bad bitch” in reference to Trina’s pivotal single, “Da Baddest Bitch,” that came out just as I was entering puberty. She was the QUEEN of Miami at the time (still is, pretty much), and being a native South Floridian, I worshiped her accordingly. Trina taught me something very important with that little ditty: if I was going to be taken seriously as a woman in a man’s world, I was going to have to be a bad bitch, too.
With most people, it takes a little bit of coaxing to get our inner bad bitch to come out and make us feel invincible. Especially when you’re doing things like prepping for a big interview or feeling nervous about a date, you just need to pump yourself up enough to take on whatever comes your way. Thankfully for y’all, I concocted a playlist specifically for these circumstances, and it’s called BADDEST BITCH, naturally.
Now, even though it’s called BADDEST BITCH and many of the songs are by strong ladies like Peaches, Shunda K of Yo! Majesty, and of course RuPaul (2 songs from her on the list, because she is so goddamn inspiring all the time), that certainly does not mean that the fellas are excluded from this playlist. In fact, I got joints from the likes of Big Tymers, Pac Div, and Bone Crusher on there too, and they’ll make any self-respecting dude feel like a million bucks too.
So if you’re looking to unleash your inner bad bitch, check out the playlist right hurr on Spotify: BADDEST BITCH. Add on to it, make it your own, do what you will with it. Then, I’d like to see you try to get on my level. Bitch.
