Da Brat Comes To Jermaine Dupri’s Defense After He Says Female Rap Artists These Days All Sound Like Strippers
You have probably heard the news by now, but in case you haven’t, Jermaine Dupri received lots of hate (and some support) after a controversial interview with People.
He told the magazine it was hard for him to pick out a favorite contemporary female rap artist because they all sound like strippers trying to be rappers. He thinks they’re all rapping about the same thing…their bodies.
I don’t think they’re showing us who’s the best rapper. For me, it’s like strippers rapping. As far as rap goes, I’m not getting who is the best rapper.
The thing about this is that you can make this argument about any genre of music. There will always be the ~popular~ artists who rap about generic sh*t. It’s the same with male rappers, male pop stars, country music bros, etc. It’s not only a female rap problem. It’s a music problem. You have to dig deep to find the good sh*t.
Anyway, obviously people had a problem with his comment. Cardi B even responded by basically saying, “It’s what the people want” and that’s sadly the truth. I’m not a huge Cardi fan, but this response was great.

Meanwhile, Da Brat is defending Dupri. A paparazzo asked her about his comments while she was waiting inside LAX. She believes this is all part of Dupri’s master plan…
Everything Jermaine Dupri does, he does strategically. You should be thankful that the conversation is even started now, because now the focus in on us [female rappers]. New [rappers], seasoned [rappers], legends…everybody’s commenting. I love Jermaine Dupri, he’s very smart at what he does and there’s always a method to his madness.
Damn. Now she got me thinking if Dupri is managing my life. Is he the one pulling the strings? Am I Jermaine Dupri? Are we all Jermaine Dupri?
