Only a few pictures of men could get glimpse of a bathing suit a bra top or a wardrobe malfunction but that was it, it would go no further. Lets be clear, I also adore most female rappers in this industry but these are half-naked most of the time because is it so common place these days.
When you are an avid activist of women In the arts, such as myself, you understand Lil Kim and Mrs. Minaj and message of female expression and empowerment, even if you don’t care for the perception and the molding of the young female minds. They are both beautiful women with a message to women, but not little girls!
However unfortunate but obvious is that women have abandoned the life lessons of solidarity and we are culture “Miseducated” but that money will overshadow the power to our people and education of our youth will make millions these days.
Lauryn was cut from a different cloth and opened our ears to self-pride and self- preservation.
Apparently the Hip Hop Nation will not be able to envision another genius who also carried herself like a queen, and not a “Trap Queen.”
Back then, a person would not be half-naked every day unless she was a day time hooker.
While we as women and men should be someway protesting, and demanding fair treatment by men, we are subconsciously every stereotype to “keep” a man.
Thanks to Snap Chat, Twitter, and Instigram we are so disillusioned of what is substantive or superficial?
We relentlessly speak of Women Empowerment, but that is not what the younger listeners are going to identify with and embrace.
The message of mental strength is lost with butt shots, mindless sex and money over anything genuine in this life. We have to nourish our families physically and psychologically
We don’t comprehended how lost and fake we are in this world and Kendrick Lamar is kicking off that knowledge.
Lauryn Hill foreshadowed our mental and spiritual weakening and the truth was too scary for her so she escaped her public existence and moved out of the industry.
Mrs. Hill is the woman who could have been on the level of Nina Simone,but she escaped her surroundings and lost her musical vision in this ever-changing hasty culture.
It is challenging to stand up for your self-respect and principles when you are trying to protect your people, usually the backlash comes from your message from the very people you are trying to empower.
