Inspired by women, niggas say that I treat em different
Niggas be bitches, hoes be bitches, I don't see no difference

from Wale – Don't Hold Your Applause Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Both men and women can be bitches in Wale’s estimation. This is similar to how Ludacris uses the word “ho”. He is quoted in Roni Sarig’s awesome book about Southern rap:

People just really need to understand where I’m coming from. If they really listened to the first song I had out called ‘Ho’, they would understand I wasn’t trying to degrade women. I was desexualizing the word. I call myself a ho in the damn song. So if it can go for men and women, then what is anybody upset about? These are just words.
