Princess Superstar Is

All Music Guide - Adam Bregman
A hip-hop album of pure, silly fun with zero pretensions, Princess Superstar's Is, her fourth record, should have a wide appeal, as it is mostly about sex and though there are a zillion hip-hop albums about sex (especially from women rappers), few are this clever. One of the few white gal rappers out there (try and come up with another one off the top of your head), Princess Superstar is an oddity on the rap scene not unlike Jewish hip-hopper MC Paul Barman, on whose album she appeared. (Both caught Prince Paul's attention who has produced their songs.) Unlike other gal rappers Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown, Princess Superstar doesn't have a voice made for rap. Her vocals are ...

All Music Guide - Adam Bregman
A hip-hop album of pure, silly fun with zero pretensions, Princess Superstar's Is, her fourth record, should have a wide appeal, as it is mostly about sex and though there are a zillion hip-hop albums about sex (especially from women rappers), few are this clever. One of the few white gal rappers out there (try and come up with another one off the top of your head), Princess Superstar is an oddity on the rap scene not unlike Jewish hip-hopper MC Paul Barman, on whose album she appeared. (Both caught Prince Paul's attention who has produced their songs.) Unlike other gal rappers Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown, Princess Superstar doesn't have a voice made for rap. Her vocals are higher and her flow less smooth, but what she does have, which, say Foxy Brown doesn't, is skillfully written rhymes that aren't about building on rap stereotypes. For instance, Foxy for all her sass has never come up with a song as zany and unique as "Bad Babysitter," where Princess Superstar raps about inviting her boyfriend over and humping him on the couch while babysitting and getting paid six bucks an hour. Also, there's the ultra-silly "Keith 'N Me" featuring Kool Keith, with the ridiculous repeated chorus, "Baby, you can feel my love/I've got my shorts on/and I'm takin' 'em off." Mostly, though, the album is Princess Superstar rapping about how horny she is in various witty scenarios. Funny throughout, Is should mark her arrival.

    Best Album of the Year

    This album is too brilliant to describe in words. Not only does it have great beats and music, but the lyrics are funny as well. ''Is'' is a welcome alternative to the unoriginal hip-hop that fills the airways. If you are ready for something new and amazing in hip-hop, buy this album.
