Nasty Gal – Betty Davis

“I ain’t nothin but a nasty gal now hey hey
I said you said I was a bitch now
Didn’t ya didn’t ya
You said I was a witch now
I’m gonna tell them why I’m gonna tell
Them why
You used to love it ooh to ride my broom honey…”
⌁⌁
Aside from my mother, this womxn inspires me to the core for her fearlessness, sexuality and rawness in her music. Earlier this year, I made a trip down to Pittsburgh to catch the premiere in Betty’s hometown. I was deeply moved by her story, her sacrifices and equally her contribution and bravery to be Betty in the face of what the industry wanted her to be. Excited to take in the documentary again and so honoured to join Betty’s original band FUNKHOUSE for a special performance after the film with some other badasses Ammoye, Shakura Saida, Mamalia, Nicky Lawrence, plus special guest my sister Jessica Care Moor along with djs Sean Sax & General Eclectics + hosts Wan Luv & Kwame Younge — this is gonna be a funkin’ night!! ⌁⌁
