There are so many reasons that a woman can be beautiful from the walk in her step, body, intelligence, and presence. My whole series War of the Beauty tries to tackle the idea of beauty. The one thing that is attractive to men that sometimes gets lost in the shuffle is a woman who really knows their hip hop. I mean REALLY KNOWS IT! This week’s guest post comes from Lincoln Blades (@lincolnablades) the writer of one of my personal favorite blogs This is Your Conscience. Check him out this week as he writes about a woman who knows hip hop being one of the sexiest things.
Obviously when choosing a significant other, we initially start by quantifying the depth of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual connection to that person and hep everything checks out. After that, we start to analyze the VARIABLES that also help to encompass our attraction to that person. Some of these variables can be anything from material, superficial things such as what kind of car they drive, what their salary is and how well they dress. But some of the variables are also INTANGIBLE, such as their sense of humour, their optimism or even their taste in music. For me, a tried-and-true HIP HOP HEAD, there’s one thing [that very few women I find have] that can make a slightly above-average girl, a damn DIMEPIECE in my eyes: She’s a knowledgeable Hip-Hop head.
Now first let me define Hip-Hop head: This is someone who is, or previously was, completely emerged in the music of hip-hop to the point that it is [or was] a large and important part of their everyday life, from their fashion sense to their common sense [see what I did there? Hip-hop heads will].
I have been an active participant in Hip-Hop culture since 1990, and I got a stack of The Source & Rap Pages magazines in my basement to prove it. I still got my “Enter The 36 Chambers”, “Illmatic” and “Ready To Die” cassettes in my cabinet, right next to my “Midnight Marauders“, “Wrong Side Of Da Tracks”, and “Riders Of The Storm: The Underwater Album” tapes. I will intensely argue with ANYONE on how the the original Crooklyn Dodgers would beat the SH*T out of the Return Of The Crooklyn Dodgers in a lyrical battle any day of the week – unfortunately the BRUNT of these convo’s are had with big, frowsy, loud-mouthed DUDES – so when a FEMALE hip hop head comes along, it’s a pleasant surprise, and if she’s KNOWLEDGEABLE [obviously along with her other positive traits] it’s just a BIG DAMN TURN-ON.
See, here’s the truth ladies: Most men really DON’T respect your taste in Hip-Hop as a collective gender. Let’s not dance around it. Most men feel like women don’t know SH*T about what we label “real” Hip-Hop and we believe that y’all will support any SONG from some baby face-having negro with a popular R&B singer on the hook. Is it ignorant? Probably. Is it completely untrue? Unfortunately NOT. [Sorry ladies, but Lil' Zane's career is on Y'ALL]. So when we meet a woman who defies our preconceived notions, it’s hard to not find her incredibly attractive, because we wonder how much the uniqueness of her mindset transfers over into other parts of her life, outside of music. It’s like this:
Guys, picture you meet a woman at the gym who looks like this:
She’s beautiful, nice, has a sweet-ass voice and a great sense of humour. So as you guys are leaving, you walk her to her car, exchange numbers and as she gets in and starts it up, her radio blares on and Black Moon’s “Who Got Da Props” comes on. While you are there shocked [and slightly wondering if her brother left his old CD in her car] you say “damn, nice tunes” to which she replies, without missing a beat, “Yeah I love these guys! Too bad ‘For The People’ was such a disappointment! Anyways, text me later!”
Bruh, I wouldn’t blame you if your first text to her was “will you marry me?”
