when your gynecologist is so kind and knowledgeable and has a gentle touch and insists you’re gonna change your mind about not having children (((((::::::

You should have told that bitch that if she didn’t shut up you’d shove her head up your vagina and birth her.

Mariah Carey doesn’t get enough credit for essentially creating the concept of the “pop smash with a featured rap verse” like

Excuse me but while Mariah pioneered the idea, it was Jlo who made the Rent-a-Rapper a pop necessity

Tommy Matolla stole the rights to the sample that Mariah was going to use for a song she had just recorded with Ja Rule… Tommy then gave the sample to JLo and put Ja Rule on the track which became that monster summer bop “Im Real”. He literally jacked Mariah’s concept and gave it to his new artist…and JLo got all the credit for this revolutionary collab and became this crossover artist with an urban appeal…something Mariah had been fighting for her entire career…….so IT WAS STILL MARIAH who created the blueprint even for Ms. Lopez

While this is all true, it’s actually a lil’ worse than that: The sample in question was Firecracker (which Mariah originally used for her song Loverboy (see Glitter teaser trailer to hear the original version), Tommy stole it from under Mariah’s nose and rushed J.Lo’s album out so that she could use it for the original version of I’m Real, forcing Mariah to change her sample to Cameo’s Candy

Tommy then brought Ja Rule in to record the remix of I’m Real after finding out about another Mariah song (If We), telling Irv Gotti to produce a copy of the song, even giving him the Sony Jet to get Ja Rule in the original’s video to lead into the remix video. Receipts (Skip to 2:11). 

But even if all that shady shit hadn’t happened, let us not forget that Mariah started all this in 1995 – Her remix of Fantasy with Ol’ Dirty Bastard was a monster hit, and it started all this. That was the blueprint for all these mainstream pop songs featuring rappers. 1995. She continued to push this style (that everyone else jumped on once they saw how popular and successful Mariah had been with it) and had hits with: 

Always Be My Baby (Mr. Dupri Mix) feat. Jermaine Dupri, Da Brat and Xscape in 1996, Honey (Bad Boy Remix) feat. P. Diddy, Mase and The Lox in 1997,  My All/Stay Awhile (Remix) feat. Jermaine Dupri, Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz in 1998, Heartbreaker feat. Jay-Z in 1999, Crybaby feat. Snoop Dogg in 2000 and so on and so forth. Not to mention:

Honey (So So Def Remix) feat. Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat, Heartbreaker (Remix) feat. Da Brat and Missy Elliot, Sweetheart feat. Jermaine Dupri, The Roof feat. Mobb Deep, Breakdown feat. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, I Still Believe/Pure Imagination feat. Krayzie Bone and Da Brat, and Thank God I Found You (Make It Last Remix) feat. Joe and Nas.  ALL OF WHICH WERE RELEASED BEFORE J.Lo’s I’m Real remix.

Mariah brought this style into the mainstream, Mariah is the one who made this the popular trend it continues to be to this day. Mariah is the one who started all of this, not J.Lo, not anyone else – Mariah made the pop/rap collab the force it is today, and don’t you ever forget it.
