I love that Rap Monster stood up to this! Most rappers today will use anything to get a soundbite. It’s the nature of the beast and it’s how they stay relevant. But Rap Monster says, it’s not ok especially when the hateful comments are directed towards women in raps.
In an interview with Star Today, Rap Monster said:
‘Hip-hop is free and open but at the same time it’s a very conservative culture as well. The general public needs to learn to embrace and respect the artists’ rights to express themselves, however, hate towards women is something that needs to be uprooted.’
I do agree that rap is a very lyrical, open, honest (yet exaggerated at times) form of expression. I understand that many people experience different things, however, the culture of hip-hop was not always used as a place for misogyny and it shouldn’t maintain that reputation.
Was this a direct attack against Black Nut or Mino? I doubt it. There are a lot of rappers in general that fit in to this by saying things they shouldn’t. So I think saying he’s directing this comment to them is a bit of a stretch in my opinion.
