Angie Stone Ain’t Having It! See Why She’s Pissed With Vh-1’s Show!
If you’ve ever watched “R&B Divas” when Angie Stone was a cast member, then you probably learned that Angie play that! Play what, you ask? Any game of disrespect. So it’s only fitting that she’s voicing her “outrage” after feeling disrespected by last night’s “VH-1 Hip Hop Honors Show.”
In case you didn’t know, Angie was a rapper before she was singing about her “Sunshine has come” and “Black brothas, strong brothas,” which is why Angie is sick and tired of she and her fellow members of the 70s/80s rap group, Sequence, being passed over every year by the “VH-1 Hip Hop Honors,” a show that honors the legends who have paved the way in the hip hop.
Sequence was the first female rap group to ever release a rap single (“Funk You Up”) in 1979, which is probably why Angie felt most disrespected by this year’s VH-1 Honors show. The show honored several female artists who came in the game long after Sequence- including Missy Elliott, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Trina, Salt-n-Pepa, Queen Latifah -and according to AJC, Angie expressed her anger about it in a press release:
Via AJC: In her press release, she expressed “outrage, hurt and disappointment” that they were “snubbed once again.” Although they made no fuss of previous shows, trusting and believing that their time would come; this time the trio Angie B., Blondy Chisolm, and Cheryl “The Pearl” Cook feels undermined and disrespected and want their voice to be heard. “They’re honoring “female” Hip Hop legends” said Stone. “We definitely should have been included in the celebration this year for sure!”
The main difference between Sequence vs. the other female artists who were honored, is that Sequence didn’t have the same amount of hits and longevity as the other ladies. On the flip side, it was Sequence who paved the way for the others, by being the very first female rap group to ever release a rap song on wax. So what are your thoughts on this ILOSM family? Does Angie have a point?
