Lil’ Mama: A Leader Among Women

Lil’ Mama is a hip hop female artist from Brooklyn/Harlem New York. Her first album was released when her mother was dying of cancer. She came out strong with that album and took a break in order to accept lucrative opportunities in television. She dances, she sings, and she is impressive in everything that she does.

She is known for her excitement during an awards show where she jumped on stage with Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. I decided to write a little something about Lil’ Mama because I am so appreciative of her strength as a woman. Her mother is proud of her I am sure, and she prepared her for the world. Lil’ Mama does get a lot of flack for not having a current album out. However, Lil’ Mama, is not out of the entertainment industry, and she continues to carry herself with strength and dignity, she will continue to be set apart. Her career will be fashioned around her strength and she will not have to sell her soul. Instead, she will be among few artists who will be able to sell albums, and other products without losing their identity. In Lil’ Mama, I see what I have raised in my own daughter.

She is a leader among women, and I am including her in this March edition of Women’s History Month. She has made history by not allowing the industry and nay-sayers to swallow her.

I am encouraging her, and patiently waiting from afar. She is indeed a role model. In a world where entertainers often resent being called one, Lil’ Mama appears to feel responsible to young women coming from impoverished communities.

I celebrate, Lil’ Mama! I am not celebrating her as an artist, but as a person. The truth is, everyone has a gift, but not everyone has the character that will sustain them through sharing their gifting with the world.

Strong Woman Lil' Mama

  1. I love her music and totally agree that she is one exceptional young lady. She dictates her world and the world can’t stand it but they can’t deny the God-given gift she has to make a difference for those that need it. She is an example of what we could all be with the fame. She uses her fame to speak out for the voices that can’t speak for themselves. I admire her a lot. Thanks Res for sharing this beautiful info about such an amazing woman.
