Video: Brianna Perry – ‘Dear Hip-Hop’

Brianna Perry

Brianna Perry has a bone to pick with hip-hop. The Florida femcee pens a heartfelt letter in the video for “Dear Hip-Hop” off her mixtape Face Off. The 20-year-old “Marilyn Monroe” raptress, who is signed to Poe Boy/Atlantic Records, raps over a sample of Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” as she burns a copy of XXL magazine’s “Freshman Class” issue and watches MTV’s “Hottest MCs in the Game” list. See the mic bleed with her wicked wordplay.

    @Romans Back Bitch,
    IDK about all of that, but the second song over Drake’s “Lord Knows” was mean as hell! She killed it! I’m glad she’s getting more gritty & serious, this is what she needs to be spittin. Sge has my co-sign.

    Don’t be ignorant. She’s throwing shade to the industry as she feels like she isn’t being taken seriously enough when she doesn’t feel the need to come around with GIMMICKS to sell herself.

    She’s real rap. Better than anything I’ve heard from Iggy Azalea THUS FAR.

    The girl is sick with the wordplay.

    Her lyricism kinda put a few POPULAR male rappers in check.

    I understand the concept; I just don’t think she pulled it off very well. She’s not being noticed properly because she’s not different and her voice is ugly. She can spit, but she’s just like all the other female rappers out their showing off their bodies and talking about “how hot” they are. Take a page from Nitty Scott’s book and put some clothes on, and play up the fact that you’re a student at a university. That’s something you have that no one else does. Sheesh. I need to be a manager.

    @Realistically,
    I believe that’s what she was trying to do, is change up her style. Can’t deny her talent though.

    @Realistically, You’re being an ass. She doesn’t wont to be Nitty, Nicki, Kim, or Eve. She is being herself, why should she be like Nitty when there is already a Nitty. You cant please them all can you. Pretty sure Bri has a total different style then nutty, so don’t be a Dick and tear one down to praise another

    @Realistically, She is not really showing her body. I have viewed worst.

    @hot sauce, Well yeah, if you compare her to a porn star rapper then she’s definitely ‘not really showing her body.’ But I just saw something where she was in a bikini top and booty shorts. In this industry, image IS everything. So switch up your look and play up the university student role. It’s different. And also, get a vision/write a mission statement. Then be consistent with it. All this she’s doing now … I’ve seen it before.

    @Realistically,
    Seen it before, yes! heard it before, No! There is something about the way she spits that sets her apart. But she did have a decent amount of clothes on in this video. You are totally right though about the university student thing, if i was her manager, we would already have a video shot on her university’s campus, she would have a varsity jacket on with a nice plaid shirt underneath with a messenger bag, some skinny jeans and a pair of chucks. Top it off with some nerd glasses and maybe we will have something that people pay attention to. Rap about having to finish your homework b4 going to party or the nice boy you met in the lecture. :)

    Yo she’s dissin Iggy Azalea!!! Notice the XXL mag with Iggy on the cover, and the chorus which says “Right now he’s probably slow dancing with a bleach blonde tramp” She’s saying she loves and hates Hip-Hop at the same time. Right now she hates it because Hip-Hop is giving it’s attention to the wrong girl (in her opinion) which is the bleach blonde girl- Iggy…When she (Brianna) deserves the attention.

    I like her and I think she has a sick flow with her lyrics. I feel like she is going to be at the the top of the new wave of female rappers. Her, Iggy, and Azeala are creating quite the buzz.

  12. KarressKaren

    Idk, I guess she can throw some words together and call it rap but who can’t do that.. No shade but I just don’t feel like lyrically she can hold a candle to other chicks in the game, it just sounds to forced to me honestly

    No millionaire you know has a professor but what’s wrong with being the first one. Brianna is witty with is and her lyrical prowess is dope. It’s just hard cuz all the other female rappers out are more hype than real talent. Hype is hard to kill unfortunately.
