This week the Baltimore rapper TT The Artist teams up with New York City’s DJ Shiftee to go in heavy on the fun playful track “Dope Girls,” that empowers young women around the world to ‘keep it fresh’. I think the dopest part about the song Dope Girls is the simple fact that TT does what TT does best by reaching out to the local community and involving students at Girls Prep, an all-girls middle school in the Bronx to be a part of this super fresh track. It’s also worth nothing that Shiftee manages to scratch and cut on this record like it’s nobody’s business as well.
“I was like, ‘Dope Girls! Damn, this could be an anthem.”— Shiftee
It always seems like Shiftee and TT The Artist are always ahead of the curve as they constantly think outside of the box when trying to come up with the next cool thing to enjoy. If you let TT The Artist tell it she’ll tell you exactly that ‘Dope Girls’ was inspired by the everyday girl who embraces her inner cool. “When creating this song , I knew I wanted to incorporate the attitude of an independent woman who is proud of who she is and where she comes from,” says TT The Artist.
The best part of this is there will be much more to come as they plan to have a series of remixes from all-female producers to show the power of women in music. I think this will be one of those moments in history and time where people will get back to paying attention to female emcees that are uplifting the community and not just overly sell the sex side of themselves. Thanks to this partnership between TT The Artist, Shiftee, and Hot Mom USA we’re bound to see a revolution in the making.
