Are Female Rappers Representing Black Women Well?

Before anyone corrects me, I know Kreayshawn isn’t black, but she is a female rapper so I included her too.

Black women have supported female rappers over the years, and Nicki Minaj seems to be the front runner. But is Nicki Minaj representing us well?

In my audio “The Sex Factor”, I’m encouraged women to have sex appeal, but there are some people that have a bit too much sex appeal. Sometimes female rappers can overdo the sexy image. Many of our female rappers do that. They wear barely a thing and they rap about sex pretty often.

So if these are the people that we support, are they really saying and doing the things that black women usually do?

I think you can tell a lot about a person by who they support. I personally love and support Nicki, but sometimes she says some dodo head stuff that I just don’t agree with. But when she sits down and talks in an interview, she is much more intelligent and feministic. That’s the main reason why I like her. But as far as having better music than most other female rappers, she certainly wins hands down.

Most rappers of both genders seem to be so ghetto and hood, and that may be a bad example for the black community. You can leave the hood inside the hood. You don’t have to take it with you despite the fact that people say the hood will always be in you. I want to see more intelligent rappers that don’t act like they are from the hood. We need more Lupe Fiascos. Those are the kind of people that we should want to represent us.

I think the black community doesn’t set enough standards for other black people. A lot of our people act like buffoons, and it just doesn’t seem to faze us. I just don’t want a bunch of black women to walk around acting like sluts and idiots just because female rappers make it look cute. We need to draw the line in the sand at some point.
