366TAS: 6:45 – Tom Tom Club – Wordy Rappinghood

Judging by Spin magazine’s “50 Biggest White Girl Rap Moments of All Time”, white girl rap peaked in 1981 and has been on the descent ever since. We’ve already visited with moment #1 on the list; here’s #2, starring Talking Heads bassist Tina Weymouth in the side project she did with fellow Talking Head, Chris Frantz. Incidentally, the Waitresses’ “Christmas Wrapping” follows at #3 and that’s been on my go-to Christmas music playlist for a decade now. Beyond that? The white girl rap pickings start to get slim.
