My Hand by Tapia Corel
I wrote My Hand in the late mid 80's as a response to Rap's denegrating and abusive attack on women. It got no traction, and I could not understand why programmers were politely declining, saying things like "We are not into promoting 'answer' songs in our broadcasts."
It was not until I became aware of how hypersentive, reactive and cruel many of these artists were, when the release of "Straight Outta Compton" spawned articles by female journalist Dee Barnes about the beat down she suffered at the hands of Dre. She had conducted an interview with his group NWA, which cast them in a bad light, and he did not like it. One. Bit. It was then that I realized why none of the other females rappers (Queen Latifah, Salt 'n Peppa,MC Lyte etc) ever responded in kind to (and with) the music that denegrated women so. Those declines may have kept me from harm, but I can't really say.
Now that we are decades away from that time, and Dre has since cleaned up his act, I think it's safe to put it out there, in the original spirit intended : fun commentary. As I write this, the MP3 is not up for sale, and just for listening. I hope you enjoy it, and smile, even if it is with a wry knowledge....
