UGC Music Blog, PA - Born Heather B Gardner, rapper Heather B hit the scene on TV all over America by way of MTV's The Real World: New York. That was the very first season of The Real World hit reality show back in '92' I believe.
Hailing from Jersey City, New Jersey, the now 40 year old Heather B was one of only two African Americans on that show at the time. The other was roommate Kevin Powell, poet and writer extraordinaire.
Heather B says she's a rapper first, and even on the show it was nothing to watch the camera's follow her into countless studio sessions as she prepared for the release of her first album "Takin' Mine" which brought forth several tracks that we all knew and loved, or loved hating. One of those songs was "All Glocks Down"...which I believe, if my mind serves me correctly was released in 1994. But no one really took notice until 96 when the Takin' Mine' album was finally released on Pendulum Records.
'All Glocks Down'
"Walking with middle finger up brown tims steppin' through
Coming soon to a corner spot near you
Its the side walkin' rap talkin' hip hop sister
No need to try me misss-ter
You got rhymes go for it we need no chorus
Freestyles comin' from da door
And who's testin' the untestable styles flexible
You gonna haveta bounce twelve rounds
TKO by the third fu@k what you heard...."
Heather B.......So if ya' don't know, NOW ya' knooooow!!!
