Jacki-O

Poe Little Rich Girl (TVT)

A former phone-sex seductress, Miami rapper Jacki-O takes her vision of yoni power to the next level on her funk-tight debut, Poe Little Rich Girl. On hold for more than a year due to label-contract hell (following the runaway success of her first single, "Nookie"), the hotly anticipated release presents such take-charge titles as "Gangsta Bitch," "Somebody's Getting Fucked" and the anthemic "Pussy (Real Good)," on which the Southern belle drawls, "She my best friend/She keeps it real/I love my pus-sy/Pussy pay my bills." Not since Li'l Kim has hip-hop had such an upfront ho, who's skilled with her tongue in more ways than one. She rhymes lickety-split on the sweetness of her "Sugar Walls" ("Filled with your cream") and on "Sexxy Dance" downshifts to a sultry R&B whisper. On the intro to the radio-ready "Ghetto World," she explains, "I'm just a girl that's tryin' to stay afloat." But the personal is political -- and Jacki-O's not afraid to bare her booty for the cause.
