PREMIERE: Nitty Scott Unleashes Her “Pxxsy Powah!”
Respect the PORTAL
“When I first entered the industry, I was so afraid of being hypersexualized (and therefore “unintelligent”) that I hid any expression of sexuality at all,” says Nitty Scott, the Bronx-based Afro-Latina spitter who blew up off a viral freestyle over Kanye West’s “Monster” beat and went on to fund a music video for her song “Flower Child,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, via Kickstarter.
“Internalizing the idea that one is either a Madonna or a whore was problematic and the most suppressive time in my life,” she explains. “But I no longer believe or reinforce those ideas in my image or my work—I don’t have to PROVE to you that I’m not a black female stereotype. Overcoming the fear of sexist judgement related to what I do with my own body: now that’s PUSSY POWER!”
Today MASS APPEAL premieres the first audio-visual experience from said project. Let Nitty explain: “Pussy Powah! is a radical call to respect for the PORTAL. We took it to the desert because when Black and Brown women have been stripped of our right to be free, sexual beings since forever, barren land is a fitting metaphor. But this is a new planet … one where you can’t stop our liberation, our magic, our AZÚCAR… this one’s for all my sisters in the revolt.” Feel the power up top, and pre-order Creature! here.
