If Women Ran Hip Hop-Aya de leon

Leave a comment

I really like this poem because of how it shows the green side of  Hip-Hop if society gave women a chance. 85% of Hip Hop incorpartes some kind of violent or sexual behavior that repels music lovers from wanting to even give it a chance. Hip-Hop is supposed to bring communities together with its poetry, not degrade other parts of the town or stating that women are nothing but “Hoes and Bitches”. If man been destroying this art ,well shit, why not give women a chance too. Aya de Leon poem shows that if women had a chance to show their also capable skills “rhyming to the flow”, there would be a tremendous outcome because women do not stress on robbing,killing, or sexing. And if a person were to listen to the females rappers that are making in the industry,they only rap about sexual encounters because the feel like with nothing else being, they would not have a career. Quite frankly, I love hearing a woman rap because it shows that she is holding her head up in this male-dominated art and I love it even more when a woman doesn’t have to rap about her vagina being “the wettest” or “the best around town” but about real things that occur from time to time.
