There may not be a lot of female rappers making it big on the mainstream hip-hop industry, but the indie circuit has a lot of females that are doing their thing. In the past I wrote about one of my favorite female rappers MC Melodee, but there is another female artist out there that has caught my attention.
Thanks to @teamRAWR on Twitter, they let me know that yet another artist from Baby Dinosaurs & CO. has released a new video. The artist I’m talking about is this dope female rapper named Kelow. If you haven’t heard of Kelow, then you’re missing out on some great music from a rawr-diculously dope indie artist that screams creativity.
Kelow is an upcoming female rapper from Maryland, but she doesn’t just limit herself to rapping. She’s a songwriter, a poet, a painter, and a fusion of eclectic expression that many wish they could be. Kelow is unique, original, beautiful, eccentric, and super talented.
Her debut project Colored Pencils was released by Baby Dinosaurs & CO, and thus far the project has received quite the acclaim. Simply put, it’s good music. High quality production, innovative expression, and abstract thought are what make the album such a success. A lot of the tracks give you a glimpse into different emotions and concepts that Kelow likes to express, but her song “Let It Go” is one that many can relate to.
The video for “Let It Go” just came out the other day and its yet another amazing video shot by BDCO’s creative director Ayinde7. It’s a song that gives Kelow a chance to show off an avant-garde spoken word approach instead of spitting some solid rhymes. It’s unique. Artistic. Refreshing. Bold. It’s Kelow….
Check out the visuals below & be sure to follow her on twitter @SuperKelow Also download her debut album Colored Pencils here

I may love videogames & daydreaming about being a Marvel superhero, but at the end of the day I’m a female. I can be all tough and competitive when I’m playing videogames, yet when it boils down to my demeanor, I’m totally a girl. I love bright colors, adorable animals, I love cliche romantic comedies (yeah, I cry on Dirty Dancing,) and I love having the luxury to say random shit that girls have the pleasure of saying.
You’ve got to admit it ladies, we say some epic shit. Whether it’s our girlfriend commentary like “Girl, you totally don’t look fat in those jeans” or “I’m just kind of in a weird mood today,” we are always saying something that is perfect for every moment in life. Hell yeah we talk a lot, but that’s what makes being a female so much fun. I mean I’ll admit that I can’t stand nagging and I’m totally irritated when females nag,(dude, sometimes you’ve just seriously got to shut up and let a man do this thing) but there is nothing wrong with being expressive and talking a lot at the right moments.
I admit that I talk a lot, but when it comes to hanging out with my male friends and playing videogames, we have this unspoken rule about not having foolish conversations when in gaming mode. We don’t discuss dating, politics, or fashion. We discuss pwnage and dishing out major ass kickings. It’s all about knowing the time and the place to talk about frivolous drama. Yeah, I have stuff that happens and pisses me off, but I go talk to females about it and not my guy friends. Girls, we have shit that we say that is just totally for when we hang out with our girls. But even when we aren’t hanging out with our girls and are just traversing through life, we always end up having some epic shit to say.
If you follow the Twitter handle @shitgirlssay, then you’re quite familiar with the female language. It’s become such a successful Twitter account that if you’re a female and you’re not following it, then seriously you’re totally not a cool chick. Haha, okay…that was dramatic. But come on ladies, you know the shit we say is priceless! It’s so epically priceless that they’ve even decided to devote a video to some of the phrases that almost every female has said at some point in their lives.
The viral video Shit Girls Say – Episode 1 is yet another great video of 2011 that is being passed around the Web. The hilarious thing about this video is that it doesn’t even star a female; a female could have played the role, but it’s more comedic with male actor/director Graydon Sheppard. In the video, actor Graydon Sheppard (who wrote and directed the episode) portrays a typical female who goes throughout her day saying different
words shit. It’s such a funny video because half of the things he says in the video I’ve found myself saying at times. Often it’s not even this long elaborate sentence, yet instead a simple “Shut Up.” No matter what race you are or cultural background, if you’re a female then you can relate to this video. A lot of the things said in this video I have said, but usually with a lot more sass or the typical Black girl response “Girl…”
Even if you want to be offended by this video, it’s kind of hard not to. It’s just lighthearted fun and even actress Juliette Lewis (she’s always in a bunch of quirky romantic comedies) makes an appearance. I’m sure the men watching this video will be nodding there heads in agreement that a lot of girls do say some priceless phrases. At the end of the day it’s what makes us as women so beautiful and fun to be around. It’s all fun in games, unless you start nagging…then you really just need to shut up and take a moment to yourself. Seriously, nagging is lame & you’re just embarrassing yourself.
If this video isn’t enough, then follow the official Twitter account @shitgirlssay and check out some of the epic shit us females say. Ah, I just love being a woman!
