Rapper Wants To Win The Hip-Hop Game

Siya: she’s a woman, a lesbian, and a Latina -- and she’s trying to win the hip-hop game. From Brooklyn, New York, Siya is making her talent known. She currently has a few music videos out on her Youtube Channel, I AM SIYA. On September 24th, the rapper released her mixtape, What Never Happened. In her video introducing the mixtape, she talks about how she had the odds stacked up against her. She says her biggest hurdle isn't being openly gay, Latina, and a woman. Her biggest hurdle is that she is going to be the biggest threat to the industry. She is confident in her talent (as she should!)

She wants to let the world to know that it's okay to be gay, and that you can still sell records being a gay rapper.

“Me being openly gay has never been an issue,” Siya said. “That’s why my fanbase is what it is and why people on the show respected me as much as they did because I am so open about my sexuality and am so open as far as my sexuality in my music. People gravitate towards that—someone they can relate to and whose music they can find comfort in.” (AfterEllen)

Check out below for one of her music videos. Siya can rap!

#FightingYixuan! Idol Rappers Can Be Real Rappers!
Hey everyone! Important PSA! Yixuan from the C-Pop/K-Pop group UNIQ is being disrespected for being an idol rapper when he participated on the show "Rap of China". UNIQ United has started a tag #FightingYixuan in hopes that it would trend. Our fandom is a small one, even with all the hard core Brazil fans, it won't be easy. Please tweet for him and all other idol rappers trying to prove themselves as real rappers. My taglist; let me know if you'd like to be added, message me if you want to be removed. @11erinmims @4dalientae @AaliyahNewbell @AdiaJasinskin @adritha13 @AimeeH @aliahwhbmida @Aliyah16 @AlexAckerman

LGBT Pride Playlist
In light of the tragedy in Orlando, I want to make sure that everyone in this community regardless of your sexual orientation, your religious beliefs, or your political opinions, knows that you're loved. Everyone deserves to love and be loved, to live their lives how they wish, and to feel safe being themselves. Here are a few songs of encouragement, and I hope that anyone affected (which, really, should be all Americans) find peace. Amber - Borders Stand up, fall down, up again Up against the pressure I am in Slowly but surely I begin Jumping trains ‘cause I know I can win I know there’s a plan So thick the fog but I know I can trust The feelings that I feel when the roads rough Park Jungmin - Not Alone I can believe I’m not alone Not alone now, not sad anymore and I can feel it I’m not alone Definitely not alone, never be exhausted again Song Jieun - Don't Look At Me Like That Don’t look at me like that We’re just in love, that’s all Don’t hate on us, however you’re viewing us We’re just a little different Just leave us alone Can’t we live in a world where time stands still? Why? Why not? We did nothing wrong Why? Why not? We’re so in love Ailee - Heaven You taught me love in this harsh world I am happy with you alone Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven If we're together we will never cry never never cry Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Forever, together never gonna be alone BTS - Save Me Listen to my heartbeat It calls you whenever it wants to Because within this pitch black darkness You are shining so brightly Go spread love today, and every day.
