Our guest today began his musical career as a prank, wondering what would happen if a thick and juicy gay bear owned the stage like a bad-ass rapper.

And here he is– the hilarious Big Dipper– the Ursa Major of rap music talking about getting his audience horny, why his lyrics make you laugh as they speak the truth. Represent!

    First and foremost, I am the biggest BIG DIPPER fan. In fact, I was the one who added artwork to his Last.FM page. Side note: Apparently there’s another group called Big Dipper … Anyway, I love Big Dipper and he really is a nice guy. I love his body-positive attitude (let’s face it, we’re not all gym bodies), his crude lyrics and his stage presence. I love how that confidence on stage is juxtaposed with this sort of shyness in real name. Reminds me of how Beyonce said she has to become Sasha Fierce on-stage. DRIP DROP was the first Big Dipper song I heard and I just happened to stumble upon it via YouTube. P.S., Big Dipper … who is the hot leading man in the SKANK video?? Big Dipper is sexy and I hope to one day be in his presence. I want him to sweat on me.

    The main issue I have with Iggy Azalea is probably the same issue that black woman who wrote that article several months had back that angered so many white gay men. Let me start off by saying that I do not HATE Iggy Azalea. I actually started out being a fan of hers. Fancy was my ish. However, it was actually the Hot 97 interview with rapper Azealia Banks that Big Dipper referenced that really changed my mind about Iggy Azalea. Cultural appropriation is a hot-button issue right now, especially with female hip hop and pop artists. I think that’s what Azealia Banks is getting at. How devastating it must be being a black woman rapping about issues that you, as a black woman in the NYC are facing on a day to day basis, and here comes this white woman all the way from Aussieland who usurps your platform and uses it to seemingly mock your own cultural identity. The twist of the knife comes when you find out that it is a black man who is orchestrating such buffoonery and to make matters even worst mainstream media is eating it up. I’m not saying that Iggy Azalea can’t be a rapper but if she is going to be in the hip-hop industry, she needs to be authentic. As Big Dipper pointed out, why can’t she be a woman from Australia rapping by her life, her circumstances, issues that are surrounding her. It’s cool that she wants to pay homage to the rappers that she grew up listening to, but she’s not acknowledging the heart, the passion and the circumstances behind those Tupac albums. That’s why I do not question Big Dipper’s rap or his persona. I feel like he is being authentic. He is a man who loves hip hop music and culture, who is influenced by hip hop music and culture and pays homage to hip hop music and culture without it becoming something gross and offensive. There is a way to do it! You can appropriate someone’s culture as long as you’re doing two key things. Authenticity is the key, yes. But so is acknowledgement! If you are going to pay an homage to someone’s culture, you need to acknowledge that culture’s struggle AND any sort of privilege you might have by being able to slip into the identity of said culture without really getting your hands dirty. Iggy Azalea gets to rap from a certain culture’s POV without really having to get her hands dirty. She doesn’t have to go home to the neighborhoods of Ferguson or the slums of Chicago or face the rioting in Baltimore. Chances are she’s probably going back to her nice palatial mansion and the next morning she gets to wake up and put on that identity again and make lots of money doing it. That’s all people are wanting: authenticity and acknowledgement. Period. That goes for anyone. Whether you’re an Australian making hip hop music or a white gay men claiming you’re a strong black woman. That’s all fine and dandy that you feel that way, but please, please, PLEASE take time to acknowledge that you as a man and a white person have way more privilege than that black woman does at this moment in time and when you get to slip that identity off the moment you leave the club or come off the stage, she has to go home as that black woman, fall asleep as that black woman and wake up again the next morning as that black woman.

    Oh Lawd!

    From the freeloader…. shame shame shame on me!

  4. FANTASTIC SHOW! I have been a fan of Big Dipper for several years now and have one of his t-shirts (from one of the Kickstarter campaigns). His new video “Vibin” is great. He was so relaxed and easy going during most of the interview, until you got him to talk about politics, culture and society! It was amazing hearing how passionate he is about what he does and how knowledgeable he is about hip hop, a global phenomenon and cultural movement that was started by Puerto Ricans and African Americans in NYC but which is now a world-wide cultural form. To have a handsome, large gay bear singing funny, sexy rap songs is great! Thanks for having him on the show!
