Gitoo Breaks Down How These Boss Ass Bitch-es Got Too Hollywood Too Quick

I love this day and age we live in, where Ellen DeGeneres is twerking on day time television and President Obama is walking out to Dj Khaled‘s “All I do is Win” at a political correspondents dinner. I think it’s safe to say, now a days its pretty much “normal” to be little bit ratchet!

Growing up I always had a ghetto twist to things; I remember using my shoelaces as a belt for years, and although I could have easily begged my mother for a belt, I kind of took pride in everything not being perfect. I soon realized that being a little tacky is actually a lot of fun. If you’ve been keeping up with my story so far you’ll notice that I’ve used the words “ghetto” and “tacky” as synonyms for the word ratchet, because they’re all basically the same thing!

When I heard PTAF’s smash hit: “Boss Ass Bitch” for the first time and saw their makeshift alley way Youtube video I instantly fell in hood love. I’m sure I’m not the only one who fell under their trance, and judging by the Youtube views, it seems that over 14 million others did as well! I sat back and watched as PTAF escaped from their 8th period gym class (I’m assuming here), and tied up their head scarves and rapped their little boss ass hearts out! It was way more than the hard ass beat and hard hitting lyrics PTAF were spewing…it was the rawness of their video, the carelessness of their styling and dances, and basically just the overall ratchetry (ratchet can also be used as verb)!

I could tell that these chicks were authentic!

But (yes, theres a BUT people) I recently ran into the BRAND NEW Boss Ass Bitch Video and its looking like a million dollar production, but just not in a good way. My simple gangster girls switched it all the way up on me! They threw away the headscarfs and got brand new weaves and they obviously all took a shower before taping. It’s all just wayyyyy to clean for me!

I know what your thinking: “Why can’t they spend a little money and upgrade, Gitoo? They poppin’ now!” I mean you’re right  and I’m probably just hating but this video just shows PTAF got too bougie too quick! It felt like it was just yesterday PTAF were up on my computer screen with rhinestone incrusted tank tops and unkempt bra straps…now their weave pieces are matching their custom made varsity jackets and this is just too much too fast. I remember when Kandii (my favorite member) had that danky lip ring with almost ashy lips, and now the lip ring is gone and clearly she has an upcoming contract with Vaseline because them lips are so shiny! I’m all for the come up but you can’t be ratchet queens for only 5 minutes…theres a 1 year minimum on my list! I mean look at them! Choreographed footwork, Hollywood hills, and semi famous reality stars in the background? I think I even saw Alize (2nd favorite member) gained some weight…you eating that good, ma?

    C’mon Gitoo. I understand missing the short lived nostalgia, but let the girls eat. I guess we are all on the little secret that this ratchet bandwagon might not last that long so why not go all out! Splurge a little, mama. Bathe in that limelight while you still got it. Im not mad. And hey, at least they didn’t forget about the hood in the new one
