Ms.Dynamite Reminded Me…

Posted on: November 9, 2007

I was watching a 2003 interview with Amy Winehouse on YouTube and she mentioned ‘Dynamite’ as an artist she respects. Because of Amy’s accent and the fuzzy sound in the background, I don’t know if she says the “Ms.”, but she does say this as she’s talking about female artists and positive rap, so my hunch is leaning towards yes.


Anyhow I remembered that I liked Ms.Dynamite and had bought her cd years ago. Through some digging I discovered I did indeed purchase her cd in 2003. I then went on YouTube and found “It Takes More”. I was listening and caught the lyrics “tell me how many Africans died for the baguettes on your Rolex?” This actually prompted the previous post (as I mention child warfare and Blood Diamond).

On a side note, it’s odd that I haven’t heard Ms.Dynamite or this song in years, haven’t even thought of her music, and then I watch this video and catch that phrase…which relates to my very recent viewing of the Blood Diamond just two nights ago. What does this mean? Hmm…
