NoNUWpenguins took the words right out of my mouth. I don’t believe that hip hop would be focused on sex if women were (and have been) the majority. Women have been seen as sexual objects because MEN have objectified them in their music. Even Lil Kim wasn’t as slutty on the mic until Biggie told her she needed to fit that image.

And as many of you have already stated, there have been many female artists who have been successful in creating music without questioning their morals. If you want to know what hip hop would look like if it was dominated by women, perhaps you should try listening to the women who are currently in hip hop trying to make the change from the stereotype: Jean Grae, Apani B Fly, Alyssa Marie, Reverie, Persia, Eternia, (and myself :P ).

Jean Grae would be seriously considered as the best rapper alive.

Beefs would never end and would be far more annoying.
