Make Black Hip Hop History with me...
Happy Black History Month!
In 1980, a young Black man from Brooklyn New York named Jean-Michel Basquiat stopped using his graffiti tag SAMO and focused on his career as a painter. He sold his work for the first time a year later to singer Debbie Harry for just $200. That painting was called, Cadillac Moon (1981), Basquiat was 21 years old. By 1982, he’d sold several pieces for 8 figures, including a painting called Untitled which went for $110.5 million dollars.
This Black History Month, heading into Women’s History Month, I’d like to invite you to invest in Black Business, in a Black Woman owned business, in Black Art, and in a Black Female Hip Hop Artist at that.
I’d like to offer you the opportunity to invest in a Black female Hip Hop activist and cultural organizer, in a visionary, healer, and thought leader.
A Black Woman, who was once a little Black girl, who dreamt of many things, including offering her musical gift to the world, but whose biggest dream and deepest desire was to survive her childhood, find safety, acceptance, and love.
This next album, is HER story…
By investing in Black Women and Girls, by investing in me, you’re investing in yourself, and in the future.
I want you to think of my next Album, TRIGGER WARNING, Confessions of a Black Feminist Rapper part 2, as a Basquiat painting, an Untitled if you will. Just like his paintings, my next album is a piece of artwork that will only appreciate over time as my craft, career, and contributions to our community continue to appreciate, bloom, and unfold out into the world.
Now, you might be thinking, “I’m ready Coco, it took you long enough!” or, you might be thinking “THE AUDACITY OF THIS BITCH!”
Yes, I am audacious, skilled, talented, committed to my craft, and dedicated to transforming this society and leaving the world better than I found it. I’m Black, and I’m proud, I am a Phenomenal Woman, phenomenally. And I’m inviting you to take this journey with me.
I’m tired of this played-out narrative we have in Hip Hop, you know how it goes “Where are the Sistas telling REAL stories and rippin’ it like Queen Latifah, Monie Love, MC Lyte, and Lauryn Hill used to? Where the Sistas talking about more than shakin’ ass and pussy poppin’…?”
Right here Booboo. We’re all around you, birthing this powerful lineage, weaving this tapestry, this call and response, this conversation we call Hip Hop.
And what’s wrong with a lil’ shakin’ ass and pussy poppin’ anyway? Last time that I checked, that's how many of us got here. But I digress.
There are many like me, bold, profound, highly skilled, liberation-oriented, Black Women in Hip Hop, and yet…there are none like me.
I, am right here.
I’m releasing my next album as a deluxe limited edition collector's item package, and there will only be 1,000 made and distributed worldwide, EVER. This is a one-time opportunity. I’ll never press up hard copies of this project or offer this package again. Once they’re sold out, that’s it.

In 2024 we put our money where our mouths are. Come elevate this conversation we call Hip Hop with me. Pre-Order your deluxe limited edition collector's item album today.
I’m donating 10% of every album sold to my organization BlackGold Movement so that I can hire an Executive Director to keep the org’s powerful work going. Between my music career, writing and producing songs for clients, and teaching songwriting full time, it’s time for me to transition out of my role as ED and delegate this role to someone who can give it the full attention and energy it deserves. The org will continue to fund and amplify the voices and solutions of other Black women and girls in Hip Hop across the African diaspora. And YOU get to be a part of funding that when you purchase 1 of 1,000 limited edition albums.
Thank you so much for all the love, resources, and support you have given me over the years. Thank you for lifting me, my voice, and my music up to the level we’re at now. Yal know I fuck wit yal the long way. I’m so grateful we’re doing this together.
Love, Hip Hop, & Liberation,
