Y’all remember Karrine “Superhead” Steffans—the chick who wrote the tell-all book on rappers and their sexual stuff—“Confessions of a Video Vixen”—where she lays it all out and spills the tea on some of your favorite rappers. Basically, she effed a lot of rappers. That’s the gist of the book and yes, I read it in one day.
For naming names, she committed career suicide (if there is such a thing within hip-hop). Superhead became a pariah—an outcast—an anathema in the eyes of the industry. How dare she write a book and expose what rappers do when they ain’t rappin’!
Along the way, there have been copy-catters. Most notably, Kat Stacks who was a kiss f#*k & tell-all femme fatale who, instead of writing a book about the rappers she was screwing—used the Internet to “out” rappers sexual proclivities. The difference between the two is that Superhead actually used her gray-matter brain and ended up on the New York Times Best Sellers list (three times!) and got that cheddar! Kat Stacks got those “Negro pennies” hosting club parties and whatever her tricks rapper friends gave her. She just penned a book, but as far as I can tell it’s gone double-wood on the best sellers book list. And more recently, there’s Love & Hip-Hop’s (NY) Winter Ramos who just wrote a tell-all book detailing all the dudes in the industry that she and her friends banged.
But really, it’s not in the nature of women to have diarrhea of the mouf—especially when it comes to things of a sexual nature. Superhead, Kat Stacks and Winter Ramos are anomalies—aberrations from the norm. Women, in general, don’t start snitching on their stank-boxes when they’ve spread their legs. The “Superhead Archetype”—f#*king & telling through the media—whether it be in book form, these Internets or on TV is actually a rare phenomenon coming from the lips of women.
The "Superhead Archetype," although it carries a woman's name, originated with men! Fellas! Just think back to those teen years and the first piece of stank you got. What’s the first thing you did after scoring with a chick? Ran and told ya boys, right? Yes you did! You couldn’t wait to tell the fellas on the block about how you waxed Shaneequas' ass! And every piece of tail you've had after that you were obligated to tell your homies that you just hit. We guys have diarrhea of the mouf!
But the chick that you banged? You think she went out of her way to tell her girls she just gave up the panties? Hell no! She was mum-mouthed! Her girlfriends had to coax that kind of info out of her ass and in many cases—had to just read between the lines and form their own conclusions. Chicks don’t have diarrhea of the mouf when it comes to sex!
Dudes invented the “Superhead Archetype” and hip-hop dressed it up in a skirt and stilettos. Guys have been taught, yea, programmed to kiss & tell. So it should be no surprise when an unknown rapper like AP.9 lets the world know that he boinked CoCo. Whatever the reason for him spilling the beans on her—he was gonna bring that shit out regardless! It was a great look for his rap career and a popularity boost. “Yeah! I f#*ked Ice-T’s wife!” That was a come-up of epic proportions! This is the “Superhead Archetype,” which AP.9 has been conditioned to use to big-up himself and accumulate brownie-points in our sexist society of dick-slinging. Can you blame him?
And Lil Wayne who succumbed to the “Superhead Archetype”—snitching on his dick as it relates to Chris Bosh’s wife. “And, and, and I f#*ked Chris Bosh’s wife!” he bellowed to a Houston hip-hop crowd. There was no shame in his whoredom! There was no condemnation from the masses of hip-hop folk. There was no shame in his bragging! The “Superhead Archetype” in full-affect and supported and cosigned by hip-hop. Rappers created the "Superhead Archetype!" Remember when Biggie boasted of all the R&B chicks he'd smash?
And Gucci Mane—the "Superhead Archetype" gone awry! Dude has run amok naming chicks he's smashed! He is the epitome of the "Superhead Archetype!" In the last few days Gucci Mane has gone on an outing frenzy on Twitter with regard to all the stank-boxes he’s beat up—allegedly sexing up Buffy the Body, Nicki Minaj, Young Jeezy’s girlfriend, Fantasia, video vixen Maliah Michel, Tyga’s baby mama Blac Chyna, Big Kuntrey’s girlfriend, Ciara, Monica and several others. Oh, he’s going ham on Twitter snitching on his hang-low! He actually posted a picture of his schlong receiving fellatio by someone resembling Nicki Minaj while she takes a selfie! SMH. Must be a new trend of rappers showing us their penises. DMX and now Gucci.
When, in the history of hip-hop has a video vixen, urban model or even hoodrat-skank boldly and proudly proclaimed that they’d f#*ked some famous chick’s husband? It doesn’t happen and it won’t happen because there is no honor or glory when females put their pussy on front-street—because they have been taught (through society) and given clear signals and messages that bragging on one’s vagina is a no-no. You’re a slut and a whore if you fuck more than one dick at a time. Conversely, if you’re a man and you’re screwing many chicks, you’re a player, a Casanova, a pimp, a paramour—the coolest dude ever and the envy of many lesser men.
Men will never be made outcasts pariahs for snitching on their dicks phalluses. It’s the world we live in. As the “Secret” deodorant commercial suggests, the “Superhead Archetype” is “Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman!” The “Superhead Archetype” may bear a woman’s name, but men are the masters of its application. Why? Because men have diarrhea of the mouf!
As hip-hop/rap goes, rappers, as of late, have been beating all hell out of the "Superhead Archetype!"
