Lupe Fiasco’s Bxtch Bad

28 Feb

-Explicit Language Warning-

This was an alternative I had for the first blog assignment.

It’s a song by Lupe Fiasco where he talks about misogynistic lyrics. I find that this song sticks to me because it talks about how the media portrays women and because it echos what one woman said in the documentary Hip Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes: “It’s not directed towards you personally. It’s just what they sayin’; Sex sells… But I know he’s not talking to me.

But this song (and documentary) is trying to convey the idea that women (and men) should be offended because the song IS talking about them and spreading a misogynistic idea/image irresponsibly.

Anyways, if any of you have time, give the song a listen.
I also recommend watching the documentary also; it’s got a runtime of only about 56min.
