Are Tranny Groupies Hip-Hop’s Latest Trend?

Another transsexual scandal with St. Louis rapper Chingy is dominating headlines in the hip-hop world. This time, the transsexual in question goes by the name of Sidney Star, a self-described hip-hop dancer and aspiring actress from Chicago, IL. It boggles the mind how Chingy could find himself in this situation again, but it’s not a total shock to me.

Nearly two years ago, news of Chingy’s involvement with a transsexual rapper called Foxxjazell broke on my radio show, Street Disciplez Radio. I originally heard about Foxx through a friend who hosts a popular radio show that caters to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and I booked her for our show, totally unaware of how many headlines it would make in the hip-hop world.

During the interview, Foxx was incredibly forthcoming. In the days that followed, many opinions concerning the validity of her story were formulated. Some hypothesized she did it to gain fame, but in the midst of the media circus that followed, I spoke to Foxx and she revealed to me how numerous media personalities had contacted her team to offer her a much larger platform to tell her story. As of today, she’s declined to take anyone up on the offer. Foxx was already a celebrity in the LGBT community by the time she appeared on our show (her videos are a fixture on the Logo channel and Qtube) and was earning mainstream recognition thanks to an appearance on The Tyra Show and a feature in the August 2008 issue of XXL magazine. Most importantly, if she did it for the fame, just how far was using the former Disturbing Tha Peace recording artist’s name going to get her? Hell, I was more famous than Chingy when Foxx put him on blast.

As for those of you who accused my fellow Street Disciplez Radio hosts and I of making up the story to generate publicity for the show, we don’t need any help in that area. We’re a damn good show, and we’ve consistently made headlines for breaking some of the most talked about stories in hip-hop, and absolutely none of them had anything to do with Chingy and his little tranny problem. And chile, truth be told, if we really wanted to, we could have rode that scandalous wave into notoriety; do you know how many trannys willing to “spill the tea” on your favorite rappers reached out to us after Foxxjazell appeared on the show? Shut my mouth!

This brings me back to Sidney Star. In a recent interview with Bay Area DJ Big Von, Sidney, who some are calling “the Kat Stacks of the transgender world,” confirmed her rumored relationship with Chingy, and, not surprisingly, revealed he wasn’t the only celebrity she’s dated. She also expressed an interest in starring in a reality show, and hopefully, someone at VH1 is paying attention. I say put Sidney, Foxx, and Bow Wow’s rumored tranny on the same show and watch the ratings go through the roof! At the very least, it’d be a helluva lot more interesting and compelling than that Real and Chance bulls*it they’re currently airing. Anyway, check out the interview in its entirety in the video below:
