Jermaine Dupri caused a huge stir last year when he said a lot of today's female rappers are like "strippers rapping." Cardi B, Doja Cat and others quickly responded and Dupri was forced to explain himself afterward.
He talked about female rappers again, this time with HipHopDX and said fans have to demand better lyrical content than songs like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP."
“I still feel like people misconstrued what was said and what was asked to me,” the So So Def founder explained. “The rappers that are trying to push lyrical content, I think people are missing that part of the conversation and understanding that if that’s what you’re looking for, that’s not what you’re hearing ... If the fans want to hear females rap, they’ll make it that way. They’ll make that happen. But as for right now, that’s not what they want. That’s not what they want to hear. They want to hear what they’re hearing. So it is what it is.”
"If the fans want to hear different rap, they will definitely say it and they’ll make it where the artists have to make that type of music," he added. "But for right now, they want to hear what they hear, and they have spoken.”
Why do you think Dupri seems to talk more about female rappers not being lyrical enough and not male rappers?
