BitchTapes: From the Mouths of Babes

The late, great Aaliyah

Last week's mix celebrated women who have persisted, and have been making music for 25 years or more. The tables are turning this week. Our latest mix is full of artists who made these songs at or before the age of 21. Many of them went on to have lengthy and successful careers after these recordings, and some are still teenagers today. YOUTHS, am I right? (Seriously, though: young people are the actual coolest.) Would that all of our pre-21 offerings could have been this meaningful to global art and culture! Here's to the next wave of righteous babes.
