Why Music Catering to Women Wins

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

A few years ago, rapper Nas released an album titled "Hip Hop is Dead." What it really should have been called is "Gangsta Rap is Dead".
While the chauvinism, and degradation may have died down just a bit, truthfully, it's just gotten a lot smoooover. It doesn't take a rocket scientist, or Don Cornelius for that matter, to realize that women prefer softer music with less harsh lyrics than their male counterparts.
Think about it: The hottest rapper in the game right now is a sing-songy dude from Canada that raps about relationships and the stressfulness of being a young icon.
The days of directly sexual lyrics - aside from Ying Yang Twins and Akon -- may be largely behind us.

Hey Craig,
I dont think it's behind us; I think women are becoming less bothered by it. When these Hip-hop artists collaborate with an r&b artist, throw a few "baby"s and "boo"s in the lyrics, talk about independent a woman is,its a hit! Still the same sexual overtone, still manages to squeeze in a few bitches and whores(hoes) but more socially accepted. Think Plies (who is the epitome of VULGAR)and even lil wayne, who makes a hit about getting his penis sucked. WTF??? and we women eat it up.

you know, I didn't necessarily think about that but it's true. It's not that it's not as much out there but it's just more slick, more clever. (well they think it's slick).
