Proof hip-hop isn’t sexist

As I mentioned yesterday, I recently spent a morning watching VH1, and one of the things that occurred to me that it’s somehow managed to become even more cracka-ish than it was when I used to watch it in the morning before I went to high school, back in the days of “Building a Mystery” and “Semi-Charmed Life,” both of which I still enjoy as if they were milkshakes. Sorry.

Of course the other thing that occurred to me is, “Man, are these broads fucking hot!” From the chick who hosts their video countdown program, to the vast majority of the female artists featured in said videos, it’s just one big non-stop parade of smokin’ hot white pussy. I was so traumatized I had to go back to sleep for a few more hours.

And to be honest with you, this actually occurred to me a while ago, when I was watching a lot of CMT. Before anyone gets all upset, I was never into country music enough that I would watch CMT of my own volition. But it’d be on all the time in the cafeteria of my dorm in college, so I was basically left with no other choice.

On CMT it’s pretty much the same story, except the women tend to be a bit older, which I’ll admit I don’t mind as much the older I get. I mean, give me the choice between looking at some 20 year-old pussy and some 30 year-old pussy, and I’m going with the 20 year-old pussy every day of the week. I’m sexist like that. But still, pussy is pussy, as long as it’s not… you know, 40 or something. Ick!

In general though you’ll notice that the lower the form of music, the hotter the female performer. If you don’t believe me, feel free to conduct your own private research (and I’m sure a few of you will), but in genres like country and pop, the white equivalent of, say, a Missy Elliott is entirely unheard of. It just couldn’t work commercially. In hip-hop? Obviously not so much. I wonder why that is.

On the one hand, I suppose you could argue that hip-hop is just that much better a form of music. The art of MCing may have been on a steady decline since about 1996, but it still takes a certain degree of skill to be able to rap. Meanwhile, being able to sing well enough that your shit would sound alright on the radio – perhaps after quite about of technology is applied to your vocals – is hardly a rare skill.

But I don’t know. In an age of “A Bay Bay (The Rapist)” and “Crank Dat Soulja Boy,” not to mention jigs like T-Pain and Akon making a mint singing through motherfucking vocoders, I wonder if hip-hop isn’t ready for its own Katherine McPhee. (Don’t front.)

Think about it: if you had a choice between watching Soulja Boy himself Superman that ho and watching this chick do it, which one are you gonna pick? If you chose the former, that means you’re teh ghey. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I may have to contact your ISP just in case. I don’t know how many kids there are in your neighborhood.

The fact that hip-hop acts (though not Common and Talib Kweli) have to pay women with ass cleavage and ridonkulously large boobs to dance around in their videos in order to provide sufficient sex appeal suggests to me that hip-hop might actually be less sexist than most other genres of music. What do you ‘bags think?

    That chick in the video looks like she’s 15! Plus, she doesn’t have a figure. If it was somebody with a big ass or some huge titties, that would be awesome. But this whole post is the truth, I gotta admit it. Today’s pop and country music suck, but there’s some hot chicks in each one of them. I can’t think of that many female rappers I’d want to have sex with. I think some of it is because, like you said, hip hop does take a certain degree of skill that a lot of marketable hot girls dont have. Not totally the reason, but it plays some part.

    Dat Soulja Boy is some straight coon sh*t. The South ain’t hot. It’s the corporate tactic of introducing something new in the market and repaing a “windfall profit.” Most of y’all country boys are straight trash. Get the marbles out ya mouth and go to school year round not only when cotton picking season is out.

    dark i agree with you on this one. what the fuck happened to hip hop? why has it turned into pissing contest? we cant keep blaming corprate america (even tho they are obviously destroying it.) a huge part of the problem is the artists themselves. representing gangs without a thought that some young kid may end up dead while trying to wear and act the same way. what happened to grimmy thoughtful shit? fuck your chains and cars it doent mean shit to me.

  • Fire

    Dark,
    I couldn’t have said it any better myself. Hip hop has declined dramatically, fallen off pretty badly. It’s a damn shame. People need to take it back to more authentic territory and cut down the amount of bullshit they glamorize and present a more real alternative.

  • Rich Arte

    co-sign dark…but… that’s a change in the times. I’m an ’80′s baby and when I was 12 we used to listen to Kris Kross. Old heads (24+) would tell us kids that our music was bullshit, but we still liked it. Soulja Boy is 16. He made a dance anthem for the kids. It’s a fad, and maybe it’ll pass or maybe it wont, but it’s just music. Alot of this shit isn’t geared towards us, it’s for the 106th and Park generation. I grew up watchin JukeBox, which was a cable channel that played songs and showed interesting facts about the song or artist. Nowadays, they newer generation have their dances and fads.

    When we were younger we had the Butterfly, Tootsie Roll, Whoomp there it is, etc. We had some bullshit when we was growin up but it was fun music. Kids nowadays can have their fun music, we just don’t have to listen to it. Buy cd’s from artists you like and respect, but you can’t knock the kids for they artists either. I never did like that Chicken Noodle soup, Walk it out, Lip Gloss, or those kiddie dance songs. But they are entertaining for the younger generation, so let them have their artists too.

    When the children of today’s generation start havin kids, they’re not gonna say “you aint never heard Jump by kris kross?” they goin say “you aint never cranked that soulja boy?? when I was your age that dance was the shit”. Those songs are created for the youth, so just put it beneath you and encourage your favorite artists to bring it.

    Cosign Dark, and don’t forget all these little boys and girls walking around with hats banged. Back in the day you’d get banged for that shit, now fuckers rocking Abercrombie and Bitch banged to the right, like some preppy GD Folks or something. Bring back the gangs keepin that shit in check, and bring back Hip Hop.

  • LowEndofDaChi

    The problem is that its cool to be tough. Young males w/low self esteem or lack of a strong father figure often fall prey to this the easiest. People have been drinking tough juice for ages though, so this isn’t just something that started overnight. I mean we all know that The Game’s hardcore demeanor is laughable. This guy went on Wendy Williams’ show and implied that he earned the right to bear the tear tattoo on his cheek b/c he killed someone. OK! But then you get it covered up w/a butterfly to symbolize peace? Are you serious?

    But like I said before, this type of posturing has been going on for ages, w/some instances being more extreme than others. Deep down all of us men want to be feared and respected, its called testosterone.

    around im just curious why in blogs like this u say i speak the truth but just in the other previous blog u said i was white and shit?in ur personal veiw its either one or another either in ur head i speak bullshit or i speak truth which is it?not dissin u im just kind of confused about u and ur prespectives.

    and rich arte of course every rapper wont last forver thats not the point the ponit is as time progresses new artists will come but keepin the style of hiphop like it used to be the same.everyone became real afraid after biggie and 2pacs murders niggas was actin like pussies to scared to beef anymore it really weeded out the phony scared lil niggas.now they just want theses soft ass gimcik artists who pik up the mic dont even rep they hood or set and just talk about money thats some bullshit.but look at gangs and shit crips and bloods have in ways been turned into gimicks frum these artists like dipshitset and others.crips and bloods are black only LA gangs only ture in LA and no where else wannabe imitators have spread even to places like europe which is just plain stupid seein silly ass white kids thinkin they a blood or crip.in the burbs u got a bunch of whitekids,latinos and asains thinkin they in that shit newsflash bloods and crips as a fact do not like white ppl nor latinos.its like me tryna want to join the kkk u think theyd let my black ass in hell no.all these gimicks just make me sick real gangsters dont go around sayin they gangster thats not a gangster its being a gimick whore is all it is.like game for example hes not frum compton hes frum landcaster he has a betterfly tattoo and used to strip and he goes around sayin he a OG PLEASE HUMOR ME!

    Other forms of music do have attractive girls though, I have to say that the singer from Walls of Jericho is pretty hot, and Cat Power is cute. Bjork is strangely attractive as well, I could go n for a minute about subculture girls that I find attractive. Dark again I feel what you’re saying. People just rap now, they don’t make hip hop. They just get on a beat and spit nonsense, and if they do pick a topic it’s garbage and they can’t even make it interesting.
