Jermaine Dupri on Today's Female Rappers: It's Like Strippers Rapping

Celebrities Visit SiriusXM

The So So Def Recordings label head sat down with PEOPLE TV on Thursday (July 11) to talk about the music industry when the show hosts asked for his pulse on women in hip-hop. You know what I'm saying? It's the children who are wrong. "For me, it's like strippers rapping and as far as rap goes, I'm not getting who's the best", the 46-year-old said. Male rappers all rap about drugs, money and sex and they are automatically inserted into a top five. "I don't think they're showing us who is the best rapper".

We, you, us, the public need 2 SUPPORT women rappers who don't talk about sex all time.

Was Dupri right to go after Offset's wife?

Since then, a number of other female rappers have weighed in, and hundreds of thousands of fans have also added their voice to the conversation. It's a pretty good read. "Radio DJs play these girls", she said.

"It seems that's what people want to hear", she continued.

"When I did 'Be Careful, ' people were talking mad s**t in the beginning, like 'This isn't what I expected". "'This is not what I expected". "It's like if that's what people ain't trying to hear then I'm going to start rapping about my p***y again", she said.

So I have seen a lot of people [say] that "nowadays all female rappers do is talk about their pu**y" and sh*t and now that Jermaine Dupri brung it up, now I'mma say something about it. As Cardi tweeted Friday, they're "the most powerful feature on a woman's body!" Whereas Cardi recommended she didn't thoughts catering to her viewers at instances, she additionally put the onus on these critics to hunt out and acknowledge the myriad feminine rappers who're writing about different matters. And how could you discount the reigning queens of yesteryear, like Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, and Trina, who were all more than happy to throw on a Chanel bikini to spit bars about bricks and Berettas? The Grammy-winning artist jumped on her Twitter account and posted a video response. Noname has two albums out and no Billboard chart history (she also had the flawless response to JD herself). When she released her unexpectedly emotional single "Be Careful", after the vast success of "Bodak Yellow", she continued, fans were disappointed that she took a different, more vulnerable route.
