I was recently catching up on the Housewives of Atlanta reruns (love that show!), and saw the episode where Nene produces an alter ego photo shoot with the rest of the ladies. She wanted Kim to be a black woman trapped in a white woman's body, but Kim wasn't having it. Instead, she was a mistress. (Apparently she doesn't understand the concept of alter ego. It's not supposed to be so relative to your REAL life, Kim!)
Nene, I would have owned that shit if you had asked me. I'm half Greek, half Gangsta'. I've been listening to rap music since the age of...I'm not sure...but I started way too young. I remember listening to Too Short at swim meets to get pumped up before my races. I didn't understand half the things he was saying (like, I could not for the life of me figure out why he spelled out h-e-a-d at the beginning of his song "Cocktails." You should have seen my face several years later when I learned what it meant!), but I loved the beats and overall sound. I went through a No Limit phase, a Cash Money phase, and as you know from this post, an Eminem phase. Currently, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and T.I. are my favorites. Whenever I hear rap music, something inside of me just gets really excited.
Sadly, I'm not as knowlegedable about it as I used to be. I just don't have the time to keep up with it. Plus, I feel like every time I turn on BET to attempt to catch up on the newest rappers and songs, it's either gospel hour or The Parkers are on. Not cool. Even so, I'd say my alter ego is "Ghetto Fabulous." I have it in me, I just need to discover it again.
What about you: What's your alter ego??
