Just to let everyone know, I lost my partner at the beginning of August, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back into this blog, whether it be new posts or reupping dead links. I will let you know when and if I am ready to come back to this blog, but for the moment it is unfortunately not a priority. Sorry.


If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Carmen Electra - Carmen Electra (1992)

Well, what can be said about Carmen Electra that hasn't been already? We all know she is an actress who was best known for her role in Baywatch, as well as her marriages to Dennis Rodman and Dave Navarro (which spawned a reality TV show) and her Playboy spreads. Most people also know that she once dated Prince, and recorded an album for his Paisley Park label. What many people don't know is that she recorded as a rapper more than a singer, and that her album is actually pretty hot! Using the same Paisley Park production team as Ingrid Chavez (with help from Junior Vasquez and Monie Love), Carmen recorded a fun, funky and fresh album, with a heavy dose of S-E-X. Whether she's extolling the virtues of being a "Go Go Dancer" or just wanting to have "Fun", Carmen spits out rhymes like a sexier, whiter Queen Latifah (well, maybe not, but at least she's better than Icy Blu!). And she does attempt to sing, most notably on the incredibly dancey "Fantasia Erotica". Alas, the world has never been kind to white female rappers, and Carmen's recording career ended very quickly and quietly. But her acting and modeling careers still thrive, so don't cry for Carmen. And we can all hold out hope that she may one day again "Step To The Mic".

  1. I fell in love with Carmen when she released this album. I still remember all of the hype surrounding it because of the Prince involvement. The "Go Go Dancer" was a moderate hit on The Box. This would be a fun song to do drag to IMO!
