Millie Jackson will be featured on this week episode of TV-One’s music documentary series, ‘Unsung’.
Millie Jackson was known for being brassy, bold, saucy, and explicit…long before it was ‘cool’ for ladies to be seen in this light. In many ways, she kicked down doors of expression for many women that came after here, including Madonna, Lil Kim, and pretty much any lady that had the brass to tell it like it is. You could go so far as to say she was a ‘proto-rapper’, with her infamous monologues.
Here’s a great example of Millie Jackson’s work. It was one of the highlights of her live show for years. This is her version of ‘If Loving You Is Wrong (I Don’t Wanna Be Right)’ featuring ‘The Rap’.
Be ready to watch ‘Unsung’ this Monday and every Monday at 10 p.m. for more great stories and tales about our soul and R&B legends.
