Generation after generation, music has revolutionized cultures around the globe. Every generation goes through a trend of music that greatly inspires that specific era on what to wear, how to act, and what to say. Unfortunately, the only term today’s rappers will seem to identify the black woman with is “b*tch”. . Nowadays, popular rap music includes derogatory lyrics about women and videos typically showing women half-naked with the intentions of obtaining more listeners and viewers. Unfortunately, sex sells in our society, and the media has uncovered this fixation. Hip-hop has convinced a large portion of society that this is how women should be treated, but new times call for new measures and it is time that the people recognize and give women the respect that they truly deserve. Join your hosts Jeremy jesse and schelett as they bring respect and praise to the beautiful black woman.
