    You know.. the rappers that are really mad are the females who usually online twerking, dressing like hoes, bragging about being hoes, hashtagging hotgirl summer and city girl…. AND STRIPPING. But say that they strippers or hoes and they big mad. LOL.

    hypocrite always complaining about what another hypocrite is doing everybody full of shit behind closed doors everybody competing against each other

    Today's male rappers mumble like they're retarded, the female rappers are strippers. Yesterday's male and female rappers talked about selling drugs to survive, today's talks about popping pills, lean, Molly, etc. So what I'm getting is today's rappers are a bunch of strippers, who have half retarded prescription drug babies. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    He shouldn't have to explain this . Most of the female rappers out today are using their bodies to sale c.d's . Most of them are sleeping with other rapper's to keep their name Relevant . You see a sex tape here and there and then a song drops . Cardi b and Nikki are the main reasons this crap started . The only talent they possess is coming on stage half naked . Tell me what grown man want his baby girl running around on stage half naked performing to other little girls talking about I'm a bad bitch ? If record servers me correctly . A bitch is a female dog right . So why would you condone others calling you a bitch or letting your child listen to music that endorse that type of language ? Just asking .
