CD REVIEW Jacki-O: Poe Little Rich Girl 

Somewhere Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is rolling over in her grave. But she's likely not the only one upset with Jacki-O's new project. Though thievery is nothing new in modern rap, Jacki-O is one big moocher. Unlike other rip off artists, she didn't even pull from other genres or wait a few decades for us to forget sticky sayings. Girl bit off the style and phrases of other trailblazing artists including Pras (the "Phone Interlude" bit) and the Roots (they already wrote a song called "Break You Off"). Plus you'll recognize axioms from Missy Elliot, LL Cool J, Kellis and, uh, Willie Nelson. Even the album cover is reminiscent of early Lil Kim with the spread eagle squat. Before cutting a record, Jacki-O was a phone sex operator. I didn't know that there was so much lyrical crossover potential. Psych!--I did know that. But the market is sufficiently saturated with mediocre rappers who think their poo is worth a million bucks; alas, some will just have to spill off the scene. With songs about using guys for money and her sniffable genitals, she's better off retreating to her old career.
