Rappers Created the “Superhead Archetype."
By Khalil Amani
*An archetype (pron.: /ˈɑrkɪtaɪp/) is a universally understood symbol, term, statement, or pattern of behavior, a prototype upon which others are copied, patterned, or emulated. Archetypes are often used in myths and storytelling across different cultures. (Wikipedia)
First, let me say, “Fuck Karrine ‘Superhead’ Steffans!” Not because she ratted out a bunch of rappers. Nay! This shit is personal! For some unknown reason she blocked me on Twitter. I remember sending her a blog I wrote that was of a sexual nature (writing about her sex-life and all, I thought she would appreciate my sexual wittiness, but apparently I offended her! Can you believe that? Superhead “offended” by reading something of a sexual nature?)—and thinking she would either retweet my blog or tell me she enjoyed it. Went over to the bitch’s page and found out I had been summarily blocked!
Karrine "Superhead" Steffans
This is the same chick that put out a video where she’s laying in bed with nothing on, save some panties—all distraught because Lil Wayne put out a song where he raps, “I can see the stars in the day time / Bitch, I miss you like a deadline /And the girl I'm with is just the girl I'm with/I mean it's working out, so we're staying fit/ But you know love is nothing, ask Stan Smith / But I gotta keep a bad bitch like Brad Pitt." If she didn’t know Wayne was over her ass, perhaps his latest diddy will bring her to reality—“And all she eat is dick/She’s on a strict diet/That’s my baby/With no makeup she a ten/And she the best with that head/Even better than Karrine.” So yeah, fuck her!
Been wanting to get that off my chest for a minute now.
Y’all remember Karrine “Superhead” Steffans—the chick who wrote the tell-all book on rappers and their sexual shit—“Confessions of a Video Vixen”—where she lays it all out and spills the tea on some of your favorite rappers. Basically, she fucked a lot of rappers. That’s the gist of the book and yes, I read it in one day.
(Karrine "Superhead" Steffans--known for giving the meanest brain, head, dome, slop-jaw, oral, fellatio in the hip-hop industry.)
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 fuck & 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 brain “gray-matter” and ended up on the New York Times Best Sellers list (three times!) and got that cheddar! Kat Stacks got those “nigger pennies” hosting club parties and whatever her tricks rapper friends gave her. And more recently, there’s Love & Hip-Hop’s (NY) Winter Ramos who just wrote a tell-all book detailing all the niggas in the industry that she and her friends done gave brain & poontang.
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”—fucking & 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 didn’t after tearing the club up cumming all up in 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 Susie’s ass! And every piece of pussy 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 fucked 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?
More recently, Lil Wayne succumbed to the “Superhead Archetype”—snitching on his dick as it relates to Chris Bosh’s wife. “And, and, and I fucked 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?
(Karrine & Lil Wayne)
When, in the history of hip-hop has a video vixen, urban model or even hoodrat-skank boldly and proudly proclaimed that they’d fucked 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!"
