That's still only half the view of the world
There's no girls rappin' so we're only hearin' half the truth

from Shad – Keep Shining Lyrics on Rap Genius


In a moment of poignancy, Shad admits that even such tracks as “Four Women” and “Ms. Hill” that offer up genuine respect to female characters or icons are still not enough. A man’s perspective is simply not the same and as revealing of the psychology behind a woman’s perspective, as an actual woman would be telling it

The only way to achieve the truest and clearest vision is to shift towards a balance within hip-hop that allows for more female rappers that can tell their own story and share their own views
