I like some of what this dude’s been coming with, but maaan I need artists to take the extra work day to come with titles, lyrics and themes that rise above the ‘we-just-having-fun’ normalized misogyny-raps.
And no matter how prevalent it is, or has been, or what hip-hop’s `illustrious’ Golden or 90’s-era past might tell you, artists that still choose to peddle these types of woman-debasing narratives as the `that’s-what’s-up’ sound of 2014, are sitting on the far, far wrong side of history.
It ain’t cool.
