This is a topic that not too many people talk about which surprises me with the feminist groups and women's rights and all that everywhere in America right now. Now I never took the raps or the talk literal but I think some people do and it can be a bit offensive to women. Watch the video and share your thoughts.

I have to agree big time with the hypersexuality of women in hip-hop. It is one thing to admire women but a lot of it is about treating them like property. I think the only reason women go along with it still is for the money and fame. I couldn't imagine being a music video chick for hip-hop songs. A lot of them are not only expected to be raunchy on TV but actually put out behind the scenes to sometimes multiple dudes. Then you have the women who want to DJ or rap, they often get ridiculed.

It ain't that bad anymore. Back in the day it was like this but with all these womens rights protests and empowerment going on, artists and labels who risk this kind of stuff are playing with fire.

It isn't as bad as it once was but still the ladies are commonly referred to as hoes and this aint by just the men either. The women do it too so really, you have both to blame. You can't just say men in hip-hop hate these women when so many songs are about them.

I was going to mention this. A lot of songs are about women and even if the lyrics aren't always clean, they are about them. Hip-hop loves the ladies, it may just come off as more lewd than classy. A lot of the men in the game wouldn't be anywhere without the fine ladies behind them or the ones who help sell the music.

As a woman, I can see why some people can say this and there are a lot of points I can agree with. This all depends on the individual woman and how she views her own life. Some are very happy being sex symbols for hip hop and that is fine. My only issue is when female artists aren't taking seriously or as serious simply because they ain't dudes.

I can get that. Like it isn't fair to not credit women when they put in just as much work as the men do. I know this happens and I hope in time things change. I am not sure what it will take but if artists who keep coming like Nicki that change the game, Beyonce who show they have talent and power, who knows where women will stand.

I don't know about that. It seems to be a gray area when it comes to "feminism". I hardly ever see any of these causes or groups standing up for women in hip hop who get abused or put down for not being as good as the men. I don't know.

I don't know man. I never thought of anything like this. I started the video and it is kind of deep. If women get treated so badly, why do they put up with it?

Fame, money, status, etc. I would imagine. I had a cousin I was close with growing up. She was in an abusive relationship. It took her nearly 2 years to admit it and when she did, she still stayed with the dude another 4 years and had 2 kids with him. She has since moved out of state and he is nowhere to be found. I hope he got locked up. Point being, women will put up with a lot of crap for many years before they finally feel they deserve better.
