WirelessFest: Female Rap U.K. Invasion


Female Rappers Went To The United Kingdom For The Wireless Festival And Turned It Out. Performers Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and City Girls Were Just A Few To Name.

 

The rap girls landed in the United Kingdom and took the Wireless Festival by storm. But unfortunately, for us in the U.S., there were crazy issues with watching the performances unless some kind soul streamed from their social media. I only got to see clips of the City Girls, so I can't really critique their show, but for the Big 3, here are my thoughts on what I saw:


Megan Thee Stallion: She has great stage presence, and her outgoing personality shines as she engages with the crowd. But, it's time for Meg's team to open up that budget and up her stage set. It looked like she was performing on high school bleachers. Why can't she get built-out set pieces with lights, fireworks, stairs, and slides? That would make her performances more dynamic and prove she is ready for her own tour. Also, I would love for Megan to start adding some twists to her songs. She should not be performing all her songs to sound exactly like they do on her projects. Turn "Body" into a Latin song or "Big Ole Freak" into a rock song. The live performances are about the show and an experience; she should not be afraid to mix it up.


Cardi B: Cardi B has the twist to songs and the set, but she just looked a hot mess. It came off like, again, she was relying on personality and not skill. I would love for her to put on a show that looks clean. This no shoes and wild wig thing just looks like someone trying to hide their lack of preparation behind a faux "rock star" persona. She also may need to build up her stamina.


Nicki Minaj: I only saw a few clips. I am still waiting to see if the BBC will post her performance. But, for Nicki, there are two things I can say for sure - 1) Stop being late, and 2) Stop crawling/kicking up your leg on the floor or beds and trying to shake what yo mama did not give you. It's so cringy and looks amateur for someone who is supposed to be a vet in the industry.

I think Megan does great but I agree the songs she chooses to perform need to be mixed different. I'm glad she's starting to perform some of her older stuff too!


Cardi was all over the place but her energy was good.


Nicki....was Nicki I just want her to let the back up dancers do their thing.
