Week 3:
The woodwind wielding woman who brought us to the dance floor
Rump Shaker – Wreckx-N-Effect (1992)

OK before I get a bunch of complaints that this is sexist hear me out.  This woman will always be the one image I associate with this song for a variety of reasons:

(1) She proves that you can be a woman of many talents in a rap video besides just sitting in a hot tub next to Diddy.

(2) She’s breaking gender stereotypes by secondary school concert band standards. That’s not a flute she’s playing out there. Also you can’t be out in the surf with a flute. The pads under the keys would get wet. The mouthpiece would rust. You probably couldn’t do trills and—ALRIGHT. I PLAYED THE FLUTE IN HIGH SCHOOL. THIS IS HOW I KNOW THIS OK?

and

(3) If this was a baritone sax she could just release the spit valve into the ocean. She’s already wet. It’s genius.
