Jermaine Dupri released his plans to create the So So Def Female Cypher.
This comes after receiving backlash for his negative comments on female rappers nowadays.
Last week, Dupri said the women in hip-hop are “stripper rapping” and rap about the same things. He went on to say, “As far as rap goes, I’m not getting who is the best rapper.”
Other artists such as Ari Lennox and 6lack took to social media to express their disagreement with the producer.
women in hip hop don’t need representation/approval from men (ya cypher sounds more reactive than proactive). if u don’t have a fav artist that hits on the subjects u wanna hear, u could solve that wit a quick search & some support. plus, IF they do wanna talk about sex, they can https://t.co/9nX46FDUia
