Niggas Talk More Than Bitches These Days…
Not all of them, but the ones who want to belittle a woman because of what she expects from a man. There’s been crazy talk surrounding women in music right now because men are feeling threatened.
Welcome back to #KeeseneySaysSundays
Women have been making statements in MUSIC for a looong time. Although, for some reason, artists like City Girls and Megan Thee Stallion have been ruffling some feathers. Which makes me think pass hip hop.
Erykah Badu started a song with “I’m getting tired of yo shit. You don’t never buy me nothing.”
Destiny’s Child gave niggas a list of bill options to pay and followed it up with, “if you did, then MAYBE we can chill.”
TLC literally made a song that listed every trait a weak ass nigga can have. Then Ms. Lisa Nicole Lopes rode the fuck out the same beat when telling niggas “See, if you can’t spatially expand my horizons, then that leaves you in the class with scrubs, never rising. I don’t find it surprising and if you don’t have the G’s to please me and bounce me here to the coast of overseas.”
MUTHA Janet Jackson knew she was talking to each and all niggas when she said, “I never ask for more than I deserve, you know it’s the truth,” in a song titled, What Have You Done for Me Lately.
Looking back at Hip Hop…
How can I not mention Kimberly Denise Jones—the queen of pay up or shut up. It’s a thousand of Kim’s bars to use, but, “Nothing make a woman feel better than Berettas and Amarettas, butter leathers and mad cheddars” and “I let him know we bout that cake straight up the gate. We independent women, some mistake us for whores. I’m saying, why spend mine when I can spend yours,” just hit different for me.
Melissa Arnette Elliot also let the male generation know exactly what the qualifications were when she said, “Hot boyz, Baby you got what I want see cause y'all be driving’ Jaguars and the Bentley’s, and the Rolls Royce, playing hardballs with them Platinum Visa’s.”
I just don’t get what’s the problem with, “Boy, this pussy talk English, Spanish and French, Boy, this pussy talk Euros, dollars and yens, Boy, this pussy talk Bentleys, Rovers and Benz, Boy, this pussy fly private to islands, to M’s.”
I’m confused as to why the individuals who like to be labeled as a provider feels a way about a woman asking them to provide. “Ima boss bitch, I don’t need help. Ima tell him to buy it, but I can get it myself. Rich lil’ bitch, don’t be speaking if you broke. Rich ass bitch gettin’ money on my own.”
After all, we are a generation that were taught, “if you laying up with a nigga, at least make sure he can afford to lay up.” The lady who told me that was born in 1926. I’m definitely listening to her.
“Now every time I ask you for a little cash, you say no, but turn right around and ask me for some ass. Oh, well hold up listen partna I ain’t no cheap thrill cause Miss Badu’s always coming for real, you know the deal nigga,”
And Miss Badu.
