Cardi B is having none of a fellow musicians's recent comments about female rappers.
Hip-hop producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri recently had an interview go viral for commenting that female rappers of today don't have enough variety.
Speaking with People, Dupri said: "They all rapping about the same thing. I don’t think they’re showing us who is the best rapper. For me, it’s like strippers rapping. As far as rap goes, I’m not getting ‘who is the best rapper.’ I’m getting, like, 'OK, you got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story about you dancing in the club.' It’s like, 'OK, who’s going to be the rapper?'
"At some point, somebody's going to have to break out of that mold and just show us—talk about other things, just rap about other things besides that."
The remarks prompted Cardi B among others to point out a lack of mainstream support for female emcees who don't rap about sex.
Taking to her Twitter and Instagram, she said: "I have seen a lot of people sayin' 'Nowadays, female rappers only talk about they p***y and sh**. And now that Jermaine Dupri bring it up, now I'm gonna say something about it, right. First of all, I rap about my p***y because she's my best friend, you know what I'm sayin'? And second of all, it seems like that's what people wanna hear... When I did 'Be Careful,' people was talking mad sh** in the beginning, like, 'What the f*** is this? This is not what I expected. I expected this, I expected that.' So it's like, if that's what people ain't tryna hear, then, alright, I'mma start rapping about my p***y again."
She continued: "There's a lot of female rappers that be rapping they ass off and don't be talking about they p***y and don't be talking about getting down and dirty, and y'all don’t be supporting them. Y'all don't be supporting them and they be mad dope. These bloggers don't support them, they don't give them the recognition. So don't blame that sh** on us when y'all not the ones that's supporting them."
