Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas has managed to turn the exciting event of creating the first female rapper wax figure into a weird sexist mess. Nicki Minaj’s wax figure was recently revealed, and the finished product is mildly disturbing.
The figure is on all fours, barely clothed, with her ass popped out. The team of 20 artists devoted six months to “sculpting, plastering, meticulously inserting hairs and painting the shiny gleam on her backside” and even with all that time, they didn’t once stop to think, “Hmm this might be a little sexist.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from powerhouse rapper Remy Ma. After all, for the last six and a half years, she’s been serving time at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for assault. But even the youngest hip-hop heads will recognize the 34-year-old’s smooth lyrical delivery from the 2004 Terror Squad track “Lean Back” with Fat Joe, which earned her a Grammy nod and a place on every “best of hip-hop” list. Here at BUST, we don’t condone violence. Read More

Awkwafina is back with a new video released today for “NYC B*tche$,” trashing everything from hipsters, bros, and douchebags, to Jay-Z’s stadium and bitches from Bushwick.
Still hot from her earlier video “My Vag,” which BUST covered back in October, Awkwafina is taking the city by storm – literally. Her new video has her hopping all over NYC taking her lyrics and her badass attitude with her. Read More

Miami rapper and hip-hop songstress Kat Dahlia released the music video for “Gangsta” last week and I can’t get it out of my head. Dahlia’s rough-around-the-edges vocals and brutal lyrics make for a gloomy centerpiece to a sunshiny backdrop of a video. The track is about her independence from a toxic relationship, but certain lines are woven in to create an even more serious story. The piano riff is beautiful as Dahlia cuts deep with, “My mommy started workin’ days at the church/ Finding faith in God ‘cause the real world hurts. Read More

Check out this video from my new favorite gangly rapper, D E N A. Somewhere between the sparkly pink sweater, the gold chain, and the way her charming Bulgarian accent pronounces “Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools,” I think I fell in love.
Hailing from Berlin, Europe’s hipster mecca, Denitza Todorova’s music is reminiscent of MIA, and she says she’s inspired by the likes of J Dilla and Sun Ra. Read More
People still remember Mickey Avalon, right? Anyone who’s experienced the lyrical genius on display in his hit song “My Dick” could never forget him. And don’t even try to deny it, we know every time the song comes up on shuffle in the car you’re singing/yelling along. Our excuse is that the vulgarity is so bad that it’s almost good.
We can all agree that this was a song made to be parodied, and there have been attempts in the past, most notably Margaret Cho’s “My Puss” from a few years back. Read More
