Hi all
Here is rap section of the Spice Girls "Wannabe" song:
---------------------
So, here's a story from A to Z
You wanna get with me, you gotta listen carefully
We got Em in the place who likes it in your face
You got G like MC who likes it on a
Easy V doesn't come for free, she's a real lady
And as for me, ha you'll see

---------------------

Please explain the meaning of the text marked in bold.
As far as I know Em, G, MC, V are nicknames of group members.

So, my interpretation:
1. We got Em in the place who likes it in your face
Here is Em. She likes to do "zigazig" looking into your eyes

2. You got G like MC who likes it on a
???

3. Easy V doesn't come for free,
V is easy, i.e. informal (unconstrained, easy, unforced, spontaneous, natural). But she is hard to get.

Thank you in advance!

Em.... etc etc
Emma Bunton is loud and upfront and isn't worried about being that way she's 'in the place' - the place she likes
G ..... etc
Gerry Halliwell is like MC - an M.C. is short for A Master of Ceremonies, someone who introduces guests as they arrive and enter a ceremony, this has been used in modern parlance as an MC who works alongside a DJ in a club or a rave to introduce the next tune because the DJ is wearing headphones and mixing the decks so can't do it him/herself. MC Hammer is a recording artist and Gerry is like MC Hammer - 'You 'U' can't touch this....' one of MC Hammers song releases.
V....
V is Victoria Adams - now Mrs David Beckham - and is high maintainence, that's why she was called Posh. It costs a lot of money to keep a woman who is high maintainence so she doesn't come free
