Cardi B was heated after producer Jermaine Dupri slammed the music industry for co-signing "strippers rapping".

Dupri, who signed two-time Grammy nominated rapper Da Brat when she was a teenager, said he is unimpressed with the current stable of female rappers who got their start dancing for dollars in strip clubs.

"In an interview with People Now, when asked how he feels about Cardi, Nicki Minaj and rising star Meghan Thee Stallion, Dupri said he was unimpressed: "For me, it's like strippers rapping and as far as rap goes I'm not getting who's the best."

Dupri echoed the sentiments of other industry insiders who prefer that strippers stay in their lanes and not take the spotlight from talented female rappers.

In a video posted on Instagram on Thursday, Cardi responded to her followers who asked her to address Dupri's comments. She placed the blame on social media users who don't show the same support for up-and-coming rappers such as Rapsody, Tierra Whack, Kamaiyah, and Chika.

"There's a lot of female rappers who be rapping they ass off and don't be talking about their p--sy and don't be talking about getting down on dirty and y'all don't be supporting them," she said. "So don't blame that s--t on us, when y'all not the ones supporting them."

She added that the rappers who do talk about sex are the ones who get the best response from the audience.

"It seems that's what people want to hear," she continued. "When I did Be Careful people we're talking mad s**t in the beginning. If that's what people ain't trying to hear, then alright, I'm gonna go rap about my p**sy again [sic]."

    Oh boy! Cardi everything doesn’t deserve your energy. You need to guard your brain cells because I this you are short by like a 1000

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    My sentiments exactly.

  • The Chosen One

    Well, if that's the case, we all need to rap about our P@$$!s so that we can make a name for ourselves too.

  • Roxii Spades

    We all should know by now that sex will always sell. I get JD's point but the fact of the matter is we are in a different era of hip-hop...it has evolved. Da Brat and other former rap stars cannot pull the same card as they did before..the generations/audience are different now and the styles have changed.

  • Russiancreme

    I agree w Cardi. When female rappers or just rappers in general rap about things of substance everyone suddenly deaf n blind to them. Cant blame the sex sells female rapper for giving ppl what they clearly want.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Imma say this..its ok for people to aspire to be something different..if u all recall, alot of girls back n the day use to strip to pay for college so telling a stripper to stay n their lane is kinda dumb..we all want to be better n should be allowed to do so! Melania trump was a whole porn hoe n she the first lady.. ????

  • Dowoop

    No one is stopping you.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Case n point, shawna who was with dtp can rap her ass offfff! She has NOT had a hit or even a single since "i was gettin some head" with ludacris...that topic wont even her m.o but made her the most money

  • KarmaBackAround

    Brat freestyle game is trash too..she became who she was cause of her "look".. she definitely wont spittin fire

  • https://nylapoprush.com/twitch twitch.tv/NylaPop

    Did she ever think that maybe Be Careful didn't pop cause the song just wasn't good?

    Nevermind, this is Tardi we're talking about... a woman who thinks the only thing of value she has to attract people is her pu$$y. Carry on.

  • Russiancreme

    P0rn hoe ?

  • Chapter29Chick

    The problem is that you don’t reduce yourself to your lady parts even if that’s what they want 2 hear. Cardi r u a rapper or a puppet??????? This is why I’m not a fan of Cardi and side eye anyone who supports this hoe show.

  • hottlanta

    Thank u sandy. There is a god. A commentary about what cardi b said without the sound. M'y ears thanks you

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    The only thing im mad about what jermaine said is the whole theres no talent bit. There might not be dabrat typa talent but some females are out there getting it fr. But he didnt lie about this rat and she knows it

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Jermaine told no lies and this may be hard to hear but Cardi is right too ? *runs in shame*

  • Russiancreme

    That's a good example. I feel like the industry n society at large forces 'sexy' females to rap about sex. Theres a reason Queen Latifah wasn't pigeonholed into just tlkn bout sex.

  • iWasteTime

    Because everyone is doing it and it sells don't mean you have to. The wonderful thing about music is that you can play with it and experiment.
    With that being said, they are both right and make really good points.

  • Chapter29Chick

    It’s extremely sad that for women to make it in the Illuminati industry these days they feel that they have to be whores and influence the youth. She knows how to get numbers not respect!!!

  • Renee26

    Geesh this hit dog always hollers!! https://media1.giphy.com/media/11NRDoItsIOSpG/giphy.gif

  • Just Me

    Jermaine told no lies. ????? He is qualified to make this call because he has hits that’s over 15 years old & has worked with greats. So Cardi have a seat with your coochie lyrics. ????

  • KarmaBackAround

    ??? i was tryin to be courteous ??

  • Slim Goodie
  • Trace da Ace

    say that mess again and again....#truth

  • Jackie Rayne

    Say that louder for the people in the back. Thank you!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He didn't lie. Let's just say she's probably a better stripper than she is a rapper.

  • Let them eat cake

    I don't trust Cardi. Anyway, I don't think that Jermaine was hating AT ALL in that interview. He is just talking about female rappers rapping with more substance. And he was asked about FEMALE rappers, not males. It was a simple opinion and here folks go trying to make things political again. so annoying. Jermaine has put a lot of black women on in the industry so I take his opinion seriously. Cardi b imo wouldn't rap about things of substance even if she had the chance.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Wheeeeeww yes!!! U hit that one on the head!

  • Renee26

    Jermaine has a whole show where he judges teen rappers and helps groom them to become lyrically strong. Of course he will hear the bars and not just the beat. I understand him speaking on the content and the stripper aspect because he probably doesn't want any of the teens he mentors to choose that route.

  • Carla

    He's probably a little upset that he didn't sign one of them to his label, So So Not.

  • CyberSuccubus

    Rap as a genre has gone downhill. Male MC's can barely release a song without talking about some woman's body parts but if a female MC talks about her own there's an issue? Ok, JD.

  • Russiancreme

    Coochie lyrics ??

  • Jackie Rayne

    When did Nicki Minaj and Megan Thee Stallion strip? I missed that memo. https://media0.giphy.com/media/sQaaQqI7NOcKc/giphy.gif

  • Chapter29Chick

    So when the young women in ur family bump Cardi and be loose as a goose u gone say pat on the back gone and get that dack????? ?????

  • Renee26

    Right... People like the R&B songs and the love raps... She just loves the twerk songs.

  • Trace da Ace

    ...says the man who dedicated a whole song to the strip clubs in ATL.....

    thats just like saying that all drug dealers should not be rappers.....and we ALL know how many of those we have in the game...if not majority of them....cause that is all they rap about.....

  • KarmaBackAround

    Its up to us women n the family to teach the young ones that a education is powerful, especially on a black woman..music is entertainment and should be treated as such..thank you, next!

  • Let them eat cake

    She has a somewhat likeable personality which is what made her famous but nothing she says is trustworthy. Why all of a sudden now that she's been getting black based awards is she saying she's afro latina when before in interviews on camera she stated that she is NOT black. Just don't trust her. She's cunning.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Yasssssssssss ??????

  • KarmaBackAround

    Me too

  • Chapter29Chick

    Yeah men love that hoe shat because it reduces us as women. Makes us look and be dumb, no value, nonhuman like hussies... of course... that’s their M.O. that’s what makes them feel powerful...

  • Let them eat cake

    I understand your point but thats one song and we're talking about rapping, not just stripping alone.

  • Let them eat cake

    Like most things rap started out authentic and lost its art along the way. happens all the time sadly.

  • Joy King

    The music industry, especially Hip Hop is run by men. They feed us what they want. If they didn’t want female rappers rhyming about sex, we wouldn’t hear it. Jermaine knows this, so he can go sit down somewhere. But some of you will agree with anyone if they’re talking crap about Cardi B.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    In my opinion, the best best female rapper ever was MC Lyte, and she never had to degrade herself or talk about her coochie like these new chicks do. She just let her talent speak for itself. Times have changed, I guess.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Chileeee..these folk act like you cant start from the bottom n come up!

  • Chapter29Chick

    This mf lady is a puppet. She will do any and everything that brings in those dollar bills. She has no loyalty to anyone but that dollar bill. It’s the love of money if u ask me... She is sucked in the vortex and guess what she don’t even identify as black in real life. She don’t care who she influences to whore around. Especially not black African Americans... she is not one of us... nor is nicki hoe ass... that’s why they be squabbling because they r on to the same show hoe motives... I see right through them..

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    A lot of females rappers did used to be strippers tho. As much of these rap chicks talm bout how good their poom poom is you would think they niccas would be faithful yet they still getting cheated on. I feel both perspectives. I understand what JD is saying. All mainstream female rappers are talm bout is their p*ssy so that's all these women feel their worth and that's all these men will want. Sex been selling since before Cardi and Nicki hit the scene so he can chill. Just cuz Da Brat is manly and likes women and could never cross over to that sex appeal with men wanting her side (she tried in the What'chu Like video) don't mean you should be shady JD. At least Cardi knows her music doesn't have substance, so she went right ahead and gave you names of the artists who do have substance. But yall aint supporting them tho. That's a true statement. What I do like about these females rappers now a days is that they are treating men they way men have treated women for years. So that's why even tho I wish the music was geared in another direction I still fuggs with it.

  • MzKeriBabee

    I am soooooooo tired of hearing about every female rappers p&$$#… everyones is wetter and better than anyone else's... like come on now... https://media3.giphy.com/media/FJtEe0YFoEiU8/giphy.gif

    I second this

  • Candie P

    Facts, plus he signed Da Brat who definitely wasn't hyper sexualized and Xscape, who weren't exactly beauty Queens, but let their talent and influence speak for itself.

    Yeah it’s definitely sad because it started off as something fun for us to do, but money talks louder than words.

  • Reina1718

    This is what they want our black youth to hear & follow. When rappers want to rap about other things they rarely get promoted. When u step out of these urban areas & go to those other areas where theres a bunch of white ppl u nvr hear these songs. They want our black women to be strippers & ho’s & our men drug addicts, drug dealers & believing having gold teeth & chains is life goals. The women gonna b used & abused soon & the dudes dead or in jail. They dont want us having good history, they want us tainted & this dumb youth falling for it.

  • KarmaBackAround

    One of my faves is Eve...yes she was in that strip club too but she earned yalls RESPECT..baby had barssss n could be sexy n serious n her songs..explore her love interest and all! Cant take away from a real artist cause they shook ass for a bag.

    Her music is the devil. No REAL woman is out here promoting her pussay with a husband and a daughter who looks up to her. Even Offset knows wat she is. That’s why u will always see him and his groupies getting down after his shows. & that becarful song is about her inability to gain his respect or any mans at that. She will always be a sex puppet, her Beyonce’ and the rest of the whores who made that hoe choice... use ur head ladies... she should not be supported... she needs an intervention...

  • Sandyb1117

    We live in a society now that's dumb down in everything. I feel bad for these kids. We keep saying the new generation is lost, but the parents are to blame. They think all this bs is cute too.

    She has a point. Nobody really buys the really good females rappers music. If people want that music to be represented more then they have to support it

  • hottlanta

    She is even starring in a stripper movie. U mean to tell me there is more 2 see. I cant.

  • Mo Laughz

    Him saying "strippers rapping" to me sounds like "a woman should stay in her place", because he doesn't seem to have a problem with drug dealers and gang members rapping..

  • Reina1718

    Exactly, but her feelings were hurt bcuz she will always be seen as a stripper

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That was tight. Cha Cha Cha is probably my favorite.

    Great point. As if rapping about drug dealing is somehow better then a women rapping about her p*ssy smh but he would never tell other men what to rap about.

    There are some decent ones that come are on Spotify like Lianna, Ari Lennox, Deyvn Rose, Yuno.

    Cardi B and Kashdoll are literally strippers turned rappers. Megan always talks about riding and eating dick for a fee, City Girls talk about getting paid for sex. Where is the lie?

  • Scromes1212

    So you think if they asked about men he would have said "I wish they would stop rapping about drugs, that's all they do is rap about drugs" come on now

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    First off all even tho he right (in a way)...He didn't say one thing about the abundance of male rappers talking about drug dealing, drug using, promiscuity and other things that they do on repeat every damn time...Jermaine is a hater and I refuse to think that a man the height of a woman would say much b.s. out his mouth...

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yes, it started out as story telling. A lot of people misunderstood it and thought they were "glorifying" what they rapped about, but that's because they weren't really paying attention to what was being rapped about in the songs.

  • Let them eat cake

    we can speculate but we don't know what he would have said since it didn't happen.

  • Jackie Rayne

    Yes, I know Cardi B was a stripper. My comment clearly says "When did Nicki Minaj and Megan Thee Stallion strip?" You didn't read or you just want to start a fight thru the computer screen? Either way, I don't have much time for it... Thanks.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    It was nominated. Laila's Wisdom. I have sads over her bc I have this theory that past 35-36 a female rapper no matter HOW good is not gonna hit it big. If you were big prior then right at that age mark you decline. No female rapper is just HUGE at 36. A hot song here and there but not like astronomical anymore. Rap is fickle and doesnt like their female rappers older. She is past the expiriation date based on that. I sadly think she got recognized TOO LATE for her dopeness.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Me too...I love the come up of the female rapper this year but Im tired of the waterpark puzzy comments too...if its like that then maybe they need to get checked by their gyno or get a Depends...

    That's true but I have seen him asked about his thoughts on today's rappers in ALOT of interviews and he never says anything like that. He decided to focus on the female rappers that rap about stripping when it's plenty that dont

  • Chapter29Chick

    Okay, but it has been shown and he has admitted that he cheated.. To me, that’s a lack of respect and trust me she is not happy. She made a whole Lemonade album about it!!! Also, she seems to have stopped doing her whore shows....

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Sick of strippers rapping as a topic of conversation JD as if Trina and Eve were not a whole ass movement. If you aint say shit then, then stfu about it now. You just mad bc you aint the producer for either wave of rapping strippers. Bye.

  • Shawty

    She was a stripper! Even spoke about drugging men and taking their money when she was living that lifestyle. How you gonna be mad that someone else spoke YOUR truth? Own your ish and be glad you made it out of that. Be proud that you have evolved.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    OT (kinda..) - Cardi's navy wig up top looks really nice on her.

  • Mo Laughz

    Yes this is true but the way he answered the question posed his statement as a contrast like women rapping about the subject matter lessens hip hop music as a whole. The way he said "strippers" came off as if strippers are the lowest form of human, how dare these objects think they can do the same profession that I do. They need to shut up and keep shaking azz for money. He has a problem with it because someone that he considers inferior is now elevated to the same position and higher positions than he is in an industry that he's giving his entire life to.

  • Scromes1212

    I don't think it's to late for her. She should have won that Grammy but the fact she was nominated was big. the people she got producing her can still help her get to that level I think.

  • Chapter29Chick

    Yes white men know that once they kill us off with sex, the black man will never be fueled by love. The strongest emotion/ motivation known to man and women!!! Love didn’t exist before woman was created!!!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Welp I must say she has a point of it wasn’t selling then they would have to switch it up. Reminds me of future he said the same thing one time in a interview he said he raps about using drugs cause that’s what the ppl wanna hear he said he had ppl coming up to him talking about how they relate to his music I think it should also be noted that he said he didn’t do the drugs he raps about he got a strong side eye from on that part about not doing the drugs but everything else had me like welp ?????

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Dupri echoed the sentiments of other industry insiders who prefer that strippers stay in their lanes and not take the spotlight from talented female rappers.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    What should've came out of his post work mouth was that the forms of rap that the media and some ppl love and what is selling is ratchet hip-hop. No one talked about Jean Grey when Lil Kim and Foxy Brown were out. No is talking about Rapsody and others like her now. Hell there was a point he really didn't even push Da Brat's music like that...and didn't she have a sexy type song out too that was a summertime jam? Him and Cardi made good points.

  • Gloria

    Hate to say it but Cardi B is right. The masses want simple, ghetto, ratchet shit. There is a SMALL minority of people who want to hear female rappers with more substance. Rhapsody is signed to Jay Z and still hasn’t made it “big” yet. She’s one of the top lyricists (male or female) to date but unfortunately, she is just TOO smart and knowledgeable to chart the billboards, like many other amazing female rappers. Being dumb sells because the majority of the population is dumb too.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    And lost his lady behind it (Janet).

    Isnt it ironic (in my Foxy Brown/Take You Home voice)

    If I can recall, E-V-E was a stripper; but didn't rap about it. She had barz like a lyricist. It's like you can't be a positive person once coming from unfair advantages and be proud about yourself. It don't feed into their b.s..agenda that they think they know about us.They even go into your personal space, like who you're married too or your past to deflect you with their narcissism. See, the entertainment of Holly weird thinks that we as African-Americans are all negative So, that's all they promote now in which they're trying to insult our intelligence. Everything is over-sexualized and over-hyped. Now Eve got a new song and people want her to go into a corner. JD is the first person to have a rapper like the Da+ brat to go platinum. So, they ask him about female rappers today. Who's his favorite like we all think alike. Tired of this ish https://media.tenor.com/images/9e0d5cc8e2576c790ec1e7a668f0fa80/tenor.gif

    Somebody just gotta change that up the reason why a lot don’t make after that age is because most of them are rapping about having sex and stuff they gotta know how to switch it up before that age nobody wanna hear a menopausal woman talking about her vagina by age 36 you should be rapping about other stuff because 40 and 50 is around the corner jayz ain’t rapping about drugs anymore he rapping about his lifestyle lil Kim still trying to throw that dusty puss at us nicki still trying to be a cartoon character the brat STILLLL trying to walk around like a little girl with a brat persona what 36 yr old can relate to any of that? Heck not even these teens can ?

    She actually wasn't a great stripper. She wasn't a pole artist or hypnotic dancer. You can find footage online. Joe Budden said she wasn't a great stripper. She used to rap onstage at the strip club sometimes and people liked it. What she was good at was getting guys to do what she wants, like rubbing lotion on her back or wiping sweat off her. She's a conversationalist and she got game. She's not a great rapper or lyricist but she makes club bangers plus people love her personality.

    Agreed. But some of these rappers are not acting. Cardi B is really a dumb stripper, as most of these mainstream rappers are just not that bright (with limited education and fundamental guidance). The Record Label executives know which slaves, I mean entertainers, to pursue so that they can continue the push of a "dumbed down" society.

  • KarmaBackAround

    N u know it! I like her new song!

  • Tee Tee

    Why she ALWAYS gotta say something? https://media0.giphy.com/media/NbGauqOpJ3w5O/giphy.gif

    Hit dogs holler...

    I hate to say it I like that song...

  • Tee Tee

    Exactly

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I want one so bad...

  • sunni_daze

    She has a point. All these femcee's she named don't get air play, while their music is good. I don't know about other places, but where I am the radio station plays the same 6 songs all day and they're all degrading shitty songs.

  • Reina1718

    Yes yes yes!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Cardi is a 100% CORRECT! My husband and I were JUST talking about that and came to the same conclusion as Cardi did... Almost EVERY rapper and Urban singer out sings about $ex and strippers. Raunchy and Rachet sells...

    Thank GOD for the ability to listen to what I like instead of what everyone else likes!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Chile... You KNOW that short fool wouldn’t be talking that Mess!

  • Yup, I said it

    I mean...what else did people expect her to say? I definitely not expect her to come back spitting bars like Remi Ma or somebody with talent,

  • Yup, I said it

    All she she needed to say is that, that's the type of lyrics her ghost writter gives her. Shes just doing her job.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Cardi has a point, and Jermaine simple gave his opinion, which is the truth! We know by the massive success of rappers male or females, they’re not rapping about anything edifying for your soul!

    I blame the record industry and media, people didn’t automatically develop a taste for this low-brow entertainment! It sells hard and fast because people have been programmed and conditioned by removing real talent whether rapping or singing! Today’s music landscape is by design!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    ????

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Just imagine, if they played the same 6 songs all day that were positive, good ones, hot beats, real storytelling?

    There would be resistance at first, next people would start singing the words and become conditioned, and accept new music, but they dgaf about us!

  • Ni Ni

    I agree with both. Everything is about sex. That's all the kids wanna hear as well as the adults overall. So, the stripper rappers are providing that service.

  • Coy little wink

    Its not slavery it's capitalism

  • Bree

    I'm not a Cardi fan but she isn't lying. If there wasn't a platform for her in the inDUSTry, she wouldn't be where she is. Although rapper Trina has been rapping about her cookies since the beginning of her career and I have yet to see her perform at the Grammy's or be nominated for one. We have never seen her in high demands and raking in the millions that Cardi is soon to be raking in. I believe it is going to take a minute before Cardi's stock plummets.

  • Junkanoo

    I can't believe people are cosigning what Cardi B said trifling . The reason we don't hear talented enlitened female artists is the record industry only promotes ratchet sewer rats like Cardi B these days. I love Jungle Pussy she has a mean flow and delivers good music but she isn't well known even though she's been producing music for sometime now. There a lot of dirty under handed goings on in the radio and record industry if the record industry wasnt so demonic Cardi B wouldnt be so famous.

  • Coy little wink

    So he has an issue with strippers rapping but yet he impregnated one I can't take this fool seriously... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5ed67dce91595fefc756709f25d685251605bb0b1932f0f584757eebda4bf850.gif

  • Felicia Smith

    i cant say who right i be dam if im gonna listen to her talk i just cant

  • Reina1718

    I miss lauryn hill days! We had variety! Each rapper had their own style! Nas his own style, bustah his own style, red man, method man. Eve & missy diff styles. Now we are forced to listen to this ratchet music! Radio turned into a gossip site! Just a whole mess

  • Reina1718

    Im sure she flew into a wall a few times ???

  • Reina1718

    Thats the point... they need “talent”

  • Gloria

    There we go. I would say "regular folks" with regular ass jobs and typical debts would be considered "modern day slaves" compared to a celebrity. These people are getting paid MILLIONS to rap about poppin they pussy and doing hoodrat shit so... I don't see them so much as slaves. They are highly paid mind programmers. Still, fuck capitalism.

  • Felicia Smith

    i just love me some future

  • Reina1718

    Im telling u! They gonna wake up when its too late!

  • Ni Ni

    Everybody dresses and sound the same.

  • Coy little wink

    I don't hate the player. I don't hate the game. I just see what it really is. It's not like it's just a problem with rap. RnB is vulgar too. It's been like this for years....YEARS.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    It's a nice color and dark enough to be worn at work. I've had so many different shades of blue in my hair, I lost count.

  • sunni_daze

    You're right, but ,that is not the frequency they want the masses. People are easier to control depressed and dumbed down.

  • Coy little wink

    So you blame the artist and the industry but not the consumer? I don't blame anyone. Let's face it most people like trashy stuff. TV, music, porn..

  • Nunya Business

    What does him impregnating a stripper have to do with him having a problem with strippers who rap? I'm really not trying to be funny. Just trying to understand your point.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Junkanoo

    Oh please consumers have been dumbed down what do you expect but more and more people with no class or taste to speak of

  • Coy little wink

    He will sleep with a stripper but he doesn't want to hear them rap? It's contradictory...he likes strippers obviously. It's a trend right now but why is that problematic? It's rather sexist to me...

  • Cheese eggs

    But...she could rap?

  • Li-Wright

    Don't rap what the audience wants to hear. You're being disingenuous. Rap what's in your heart. Look to Eminem and Marvin Gaye for inspiration. They wrote what was in their heart. Even the old school rappers, Grandmaster Flash, rapped about what was real.

  • tintin

    all the music that is out by these female artists have to be bleeped and even when its bleeped you can still make out the words. All the new female rappers say "Pu$$Y' at least once in their songs . This is now the way of the world. And unfortunately this is the mess our kids are growing up in.

    At the end of the day, i really don"t think there is that much talent. But I will flow to the raunchy music but still make full room for my old school good tunes.

  • Li-Wright

    Blame the record industry and the producers. They push this trash on the kids, polluting their minds. Maybe the rappers should rap about education and getting ahead in life....but to rap about stripping, sex and bling....hell nah.

    I can't believe Cardi believes what she raps.

  • Li-Wright

    Their stage acts are a big strip act. They don't dance, they twerk and "give the audience what they want."

  • Chapter29Chick

    It’s not about the fact of him cheating, it’s RESPECT. If she left him after being Mother Teresa do U think he would be like, oh “Bye bitch, I have so and sew ????”

  • Li-Wright

    I don't consider Cardi "successful." She's in a lot of debt, that's why she's working 24/7. She isn't at Jay Z and Beyonce status. Give her a few more years, if she doesn't have a breakdown.

  • Chapter29Chick

    It’s when u just don’t gaf and just be grinding and letting the world see ur tricks...

  • tintin

    now that's funny

  • Li-Wright

    I'm old school all the way. Even rap old school. I can't stand what these kids are singing. However, the new kid, Jafaar Jackson, is a dream to watch and hear.

  • Reina1718

    Yes! Thank u! Worked so hard to be respected & look how we disrespect ourselves

  • Reina1718

    Hellz no

  • Gloria

    This is not nothing new..... Lil Kim? Trina? Hell, even Missy Elliot were all rapping about pussy and ratchet shit.

  • Reina1718

    Yes! Big sean, j cole are way better lyricists then some damn migos! Wtf is a migos??

  • DroneRivers

    I agree. I would rather he just say that than bring up their past as strippers.

  • Reina1718

    Yass i like u! ??

    these nignogs been rapping the same crap for years... https://media3.giphy.com/media/3ohfFuqDrRTTV1v5ba/giphy.gif

  • Bossy704

    There is room for conscious rappers and stripper rappers. The problem is the media puts up Cardi vs. Nicki when they are nothing alike. You have to DIG for good hip hop by female artists.

  • Minx Mosaic

    Sorry, but you're the one who seems like a fool with this foolish comment... Lol one has absolutely nothing to do with the other. So since I love ketchup on my fries, I should also put ketchup on my shirt, shoes and in my hair? That's stupid, just like your comment.

  • Let them eat cake

    lol i miss that show. i watched that episode a million times.

  • Coy little wink

    Listen move along if you don't get my humor but I elaborated for yo slow azz below.

    He has contributed to the glorification of strippers. He needs to look in the mirror...

  • Minx Mosaic

    Lol, that wasn't humor. Your dumbass was truly trying to make an intellectual point and you FAILED!!! Hahaha. Now that's true humor!

  • LaTressa Juice Hawkins

    What can we say it is a known fact that sex sells. On top of that strippers dance to the music that's popular in the streets so duhhh they know what will make a hit or not and have an ear for it so why not make their own music and make some money from it other than just dancing to it in the club for ones. Most rappers take their music to the strip clubs first to see what kind of reaction they will get from it. Don't hate the player hate the game. And no I am not a stripper can't twerk if my life depended on it I just get it. Don't get mad because these women decided to get a bigger bag by making the music themselves and actually being good at it,

  • Minx Mosaic

    And your elaboration below, further elaborates how dumb you are.

  • samuel severino

    Really trying to understand how that is sexist. I love the girls at Hot Dog on a Stick. Doesn’t mean I want to hear them rap. Nor is that sexist either.

  • softness1

    Can he just shut the hell up??? I mean and the men are doing what?? Hell all he rapped about was money, jewelry, women etc.. What is he talking about.. Have a stadium full of seats... FOH

  • Coy little wink

    Because they can rap about whatever they want to. The men surely do. Is he telling male artists to step up their lyrical content?

  • Not Today

    He has a valid point. Because women like Tierra whack aren't taking there cloths off, they aren't" mainstream", and she is a lyricist unlike cardio whom I barely understand

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    A majority of male rappers rap about selling dope and trapping.. sooooo now ya got a gang of women rapping about their cooch and getting money....

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Oh and he produced not tonight on lil Kim’s first album.. and she was talking about her cooch heavy in that song

  • Yup, I said it

    In reality their thangs are probably wet and burning at the same damn time and probably smell like month old Durian fruit.

  • Coy little wink
  • Coy little wink

    I don't expect anything it doesn't affect me and it's beyond my control

    finally one i can agree with you on lol

    Bish I'm not a rapper and you know this. I'm not a stripper either. So what is your issue with MY OPINION and how is your comment even relevant...

  • wonderwoman

    He should know about strippers, didn’t he get one pregnant. That’s why Janet(Miss Jackson if you nasty)left him, he stayed in the strip club. I get what he is saying though.

  • Yup, I said it

    He values their talent in the bedroom, the backseat of a car, the back alley, the champagne room etc. That explains why he has no respect for them as rappers. He like I got a Mic for you to rock ?

  • Chicagowise

  • speakinmymind

    So 'consumers' have been dumbed down. Aren't you a consumer? Or are you so intellectually superior to everyone else that only YOU know what should be consumed and isn't dumbed down?

    U wanna rap about ur pussy cause its garbage asf but nobody wanna hear the real talented women cause the global elite made sure of that sell yo pussy u fuckin con act niggerish or we want give u that 5 min shine u crave so much make sure u suck that monkey dick then eat our ass as we continue 2 have u support our gay agenda! Do as we say stripper bitch get fake titties & ass as well! These ppl retarted asf! If ppl had common sense 2 use their brain u dont have 2 listen 2 strippers that rap about pussy that nigaaz ran thru already!

  • starbright9449

    She's right, I can't blame Cardi and the like. They'll rap about what sells, the blame is on the consumers.

  • starbright9449

    Btw some of these rappers who were once strippers can rap better than some of the best in the game.

  • Bree

    It's not the record industry's job to control what my kid listens to. That's my job as a parent. I'm not mad at Cardi for milking the cow. I just don't operate like that. If her music doesn't sell, we wouldn't hear from her anymore.

  • starbright9449

    He's misogynistic, men can be in a shady line of work like selling drugs and wrap about that and its cool but when a female stripper starts rapping its a problem???

  • Junkanoo

    Piss off simpleton you sound special needs do you think people actually log online looking for your approval or validation you sound thin skinned and mildly retarted

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This is very old news. He is a proud father of 2 beautiful daughters. The youngest daughter's picture was posted on this blog and other blogs. He does not hide her just because her mother was a stripper.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I agree with you, it takes a minute to really paid off all the mounting expenses and debt! She will in time.

    I don’t consider her a talented rapper, but a commodity that’s trending. That’s one of the reasons she’s so sensitive, abrasive, and responds to anything that’s not flattering or praise!

    Cos when Lil Kim and Method Man hit that BET stage, it was a reminder that all the hit songs, chart topping in the world can’t REPLACE REAL TALENT!

  • Rhyme and Reason

  • T Willis

    Here’s the thing, over-saturation of crappy music is a real thing. If you hear a crappy song enough times, you’ll eventually like it or even dance to it. It does NOT mean that there is huge market for said crappy music. It means that there is a million dollar machine paying these media platforms to promote and oversaturate our airways with their crappy music. That’s why the better rappers aren’t as successful as the Cardi B’s, because they don’t have the same million dollar backing.

  • ??Dotty??

    But she is right. People elevate artists who they want to hear regardless of the message that they are putting out. If what people keep playing is music talking about sex, then thats gonna be the type of music that people will try to keep listening to across the board. If you want to hear different music. Support different artists and elevate them.
