V-Nasty - Not As Nasty As She Wants To Be?
Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Some people only think of V-Nasty as the rapper from Kreayshawn’s White Girl Mob that drops the N-bomb. Those who’ve heard her music may think she’s an angry person. Those who’ve seen her live performances may think of her as the happy person they’ve seen on stage, smiling and high-fiving fans. None of those images, however, give the full story on who V-Nasty is, and that’s because, according to her, she’s struggling to tell that story herself.

It’s that struggle that’s the aspect of V-Nasty that most never get a chance to see. This isn’t a typical “struggle to get out of the hood” type of struggle, although that’s certainly an aspect of it. Rather, it’s the struggle of knowing she doesn’t have the right words for what she wants to say, and desperately wanting those words to come to her. Despite her brash demeanor on the mic, there’s a vulnerability to V-Nasty that, if more people saw, might change some opinions of her.

On the heels of the release of V-Nasty’s mixtape, Doin Number$, RapReviews sat down with controversial artist to discuss the initial impression people had of her, her goal of going back to school, and her unique relationship with her fans. The mother of two also opened up about the highly unlikely prospect of becoming a soccer mom.

    Read the interview. Meh... I'd like to know why she dropped out of school in 9th grade. If she had a legitimate reason to do so will determine if in the end I care about her struggles.

    I have a sister that went through hell from elementary school all the way through high-school and ended up having to get her GED not because she dropped out but because she could no longer go. I know first hand why her life was hell having to be in an out of schools to deal with teachers and administrators. She actually went through terrible things which would have been understandable if she gave up and dropped out. She persevered in the best way she knew how to. The part of V-Nasty's story that's missing is what her 'struggles' are whether they're real things and if her lifestyle was forced upon her or chosen remains to be seen. Until we get those details I could care less about her 'struggle'. I'm not going take her word for it or anyone's for that matter. Does not every rapper from the 'hood' claim the same thing. And honestly how much of that has anything to do with her knowing what's respectable or not. Dropping out of school and living a street life has little to do with being disrespectful to people. She doesn't get a pass for it. Why are people that are so apathetic to others feelings always want you to care so much about there own? She obviously didn't have a hard time articulating that.

    What I'm waiting for is for you to go harder with an interview like this. I'm sure you could. Not sure if you want to though.

    All in all it was interesting enough. Let's see what she's doing post Gucci Maine collaboration.

    After listening to that song, why would anyone even think beyond anything she'd like us to think beyond? That's the type of music that would get your children taken away from you, added the interview building the case for her as an unfit mother if she were a young black female.

    Not much different different then the way dudes incriminate themselves in raps most times and they end up using those same lines in court when they prosecute them.

    Perhaps you posting the song link was you way of subliminally saying you don't buy what she's saying either. Who knows. either way I shake my head. Too many artist regardless of color out just saying whatever the hell they want without considering it's overall affect. but in the end to escape responsibility claiming it's their 'struggle'. I wish she'd articulate in a verse about what it is to be a mother in a world where you dropped out and feel you're dumb because of it. That's real and human thing that people may very well forgive you for saying niggah in songs. I can only imagine how much respect she'd get for that over her talking bout how many bitches she's getting and all the liquor she's drinking. I'm just sayin.

    it's not necessary to explain why you did an interview with V-Nasty. You're a journalist, it's your job. I do recognize why you wrote to explain it though...

    Please believe me when I tell you I went as hard as I possibly could. There were a lot of long pauses on her end as she tried to find words that simply weren't coming to her. She desperately wanted to have the answers, but simply didn't. Honestly, by the end of it all, I felt sorry for her.
