Roc Nation‘s Bridget Kelly released her EP Every Girl in late October and I’m here to give a review via a track by track rundown of the songbird’s musical piece with songs written and produced by Frank Ocean, Shea Taylor, Ne-Yo, James Fauntleroy II, Sonyae Elise, Brian Judah, Syience, Greg Ogan, John Adams, Ester Dean and The Dream.
“Stupid Hoe” is proving that you cannot put out anything when you have a big buzz and expect people to embrace it. Unfortunately, the new video release isn’t getting a lot of positive feedback on Youtube and social media networks.
Nicki Minaj stated that when she was recording this album, she not only wanted to bring back her alter ego Roman Zolanski, but to also give the fans some of the mixtape-type material that her fans missed. “Stupid Hoe” is not that. I like the record- I think it’s fun and the video is too The video includes a few Beyoncé inspirations (most notably “Upgrade U” and “Kitty Kat”).
Nicki must have peeped the feedback thus far because she recently decided to push back the release of her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded to April 3rd. Hopefully, she’ll revamp the album and change the title because reloading your last album to ride the buzz of your debut won’t make it more successful than your previous effort.
Check out the video above and let us know what you think about it.

Trae The Truth teams up with Don Cannon to present a collection of gritty bars and street storytelling with King Of The Streets: Freestyles. Representing Houston to the fullest, he drops line after line with a southern drawl and intensity like only he can do over the hottest beats to hit last year’s rap scene. Look out for special appearances from Fabolous, Big Boi, French Montana, Jeezy, and many more. This is his 29th mixtape, easily making him one of the most productive emcees in the industry, and the quality stays consistent. Post your thoughts!
