God-Des and She Fans,
They are coming to Philadelphia and Portland. They need some help promoting the shows. If you want to be part of their street team you must be able to hand out fliers, talk to people, hang posters, and spread the word as much as you can about God-Des & She. You must be serious about street teaming. If they choose you, you will get to come into the show for free, do a meet and greet with them, and get a gift bag with cd's and other merch that they will sign for you. You MUST LIVE in (or VERY CLOSE) to the city you want to promote.
If you are interested, please email Jayd at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name, age, email, phone, and how you know about God-Des and SHe.

Rasheeda, the famous female MC hailing from Atlanta, Georgia has been cranking out hits since early 2000. As a teenager while her friends were transitioning from Barbie dolls to make-up, Rasheeda was busy writing rhymes and perfecting her craft. Rasheeda has always ruled as the Queen of Crunk but she has also established herself as one of the sexiest women in hip- hop.
Rasheeda started out as a member of the teenage hip- hop trio Da Kaperz, which was signed to D-LO Entertainment and is still who Rasheeda is signed to till this day. When D-LO decided to launch her solo career they joined forces with Motown Records and released her solo, debut album Dirty South in 2001. The album contained the dirty south anthem, “Do It (Do Da Damn Thang)” with Pastor Troy. Her follow up was 2002’s “A Ghetto Dream” released independently thru D-Lo Entertainment. That album featured collaborations with the superstars of crunk, Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz and secured Rasheeda’s place as “The Queen of Crunk”.
OKAY!! Now time for the interview!
Carter2Carter: How long have you been doing music?
Rasheeda: I been doing music almost 13 yrs.
C2C: How did you get started in it?
Rasheeda:...I met some friends that had a love for music...we was like we should become a group [Da Kaperz] and take things seriously...we spoke to Frost at D-Lo, he said we would be the first group...that's how it started, and I've been with D-Lo since then to now...
C2C: Is that when you realized that rapping was what you really wanted to do as your career?
Rasheeda: That's when I said this is what I think I should be doing...

M.I.A. has joined the growing number of people who say they’ll flee the U.S. if John McCain wins the 2008 presidential election.....
She says, “If McCain gets voted in, then I’m outta here quicker than anyone can say Obama. I’m here because it’s an interesting time. It’s important to be here watching and saying to people, ‘Look, your country has been so dumb for eight years. If you f**k up one more time, that’s a whole generation of dumb people.’” (source).

M.I.A. is pregnant with her first child."I'm creating a baby," she revealed to Pitchfork's Jessica Suarez in an interview just prior to her performance at Diesel's ridonculous xXx party in NYC Saturday night."When I found out I was pregnant and 'Paper Planes' was in the iTunes top 10," M.I.A. told Pitchfork, "it seemed like the whole world was reshuffled in one week, and all my plans went out the window. And that's the lesson...you can't make plans, and you can't say shit." (source).
