A couple of years before moving to Atlanta in 2009, rapper and Brooklyn native Siya was featured in a lengthy Village Voice piece about AGs or aggressives. Titled "Girls to Men," the article focused on Brooklyn's emerging demographic of mannish, hat-to-the-back-wearing lesbians who, inspired by rap's male mysogynists, tend to prey on their more feminine counterparts like, well, thugs:
... for increasing numbers of very young black and Hispanic lesbians, the bitches-and-'hos lyrics of their musical heroes are the soundtrack for a thug's life they pursue with almost as much passion as they do the hottest femme in the club.
"Aggressive" would also be a good way to describe Siya's mic flow. She goes in; but as her 2009 mixtape State of Mind showcases, her steelo does not revolve around her sexual orientation at least not any more than the average MC.
Likewise, tonight's PussyThrob event is not strictly dickly or lesbian, straight or gay, either, from my understanding. Rather, it's a fashion party Tomik Dash has been promoting since returning from NYC in an effort to break down some of the segragation in Atlanta after dark. But that doesn't mean there's no discretion at the door. As the flyer says: No basic bitches allowed. Take it to heart.
