Memphis Blac & Smokahontas Jones Performing Live at Vagabond Thursday
When we last left our viral hooker-cum-rappers heroines Memphis Blac and Smokahontas Jones, they explained to us what all the hoopla surrounding the YouTube sensation "Got Dat Work" was about. The Dallas aunt-and-niece team had experienced a bit of a backlash, but Blac insisted they were only rapping about what they know: the tough life of a street hooker.
The video, filmed around Miami-Dade during Memorial Day weekend, showed off a gaudy Blac, with Magnums as jewelery and a shapely Smokahontas picking up men on Collins Avenue. But it seems like they aren't done with us yet, returning Thursday to perform at Vagabond's Shake party.
The girls have a new track out called "Hoe Money." Like their previous effort, it's riddled with amazing lyrics like "I used to sell crack just to come up on some cash, but the only crack I sell now is a crack off a bitch's ass."
Internet novelty aside, the pair is an interesting act. Maybe it's the exploitative nature that first attracted us, but they seem more honest and real than the Rick Rosses and Lil Waynes that dominate the charts. But whatever the reason that compels you to check them out, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for free admission until 11 p.m. Ladies free until midnight. Doors open at 10 p.m.
Don't forget to check out the video for "Hoe Money."
