Whilst taking gangsta rap’s misogynist attitudes to task may be a positive move, adopting the latter’s agenda to do so seems less well-advised. All in all Hoez With Attitude (HWA) (‘Baby Girl’ Kim Kenner, Goldie and Jazz) are a tragic concept stretched ever thinner over scuttling Miami-bass rhythms. Emigrating from Chicago to Los Angeles in the late 80s, within a year they had unveiled an album that would sell nearly 400, 000 copies. A group destined to earn their notoriety off skimpy stage wear rather than anything constructive they might have to offer, musically or lyrically.
