When Jermaine Dupri said in an interview with People that he couldn’t think of his favorite female rapper because there are “strippers rapping,” who are all rapping about being in the club. The internet exploded and Cardi B had to weigh in. Because we totally didn’t realize that all these male rappers are out here not rapping about strippers or being in the club. Maybe they should rap about other things as Dupri suggests female rappers should. It’s interesting that someone like Dupri who has definitely rapped about partying and “hoes” has the nerve to fault female rappers for rapping about their sexual prowess and their bodies. I guess it’s only okay when men objectify us huh?

“There’s a lot of female rappers that be rapping they ass off and don’t be talking about they pu**y and don’t be talking about getting down and dirty, and y’all don’t be supporting them,” she said. “Y’all don’t be supporting them and they be mad dope. These bloggers don’t support them, they don’t give them the recognition, so don’t blame that shit on us when y’all not the ones that’s supporting them.”
In a follow-up post, she dropped four female rappers that don’t rap about “getting down and dirty” but that are also amazing emcees that deserve recognition. Here is the rundown on the 4 fire artists Cardi co-signed.
