Cardi B Claps Back at Jermaine Dupri's 'Strippers Rapping' Comment

Cardi B is speaking out in response to a comment made by music producer Jermaine Dupri.

During a recent interview, Jermaine was asked to name his favorite female rapper right now and he couldn’t come up with an answer.

“I can’t really say. The only reason why I can’t say is because I feel they’re all rapping about the same things,” he told People TV. “I don’t think they’re showing us who’s the best rapper. I think they’re trying to show⁠—for me, it’s like strippers rapping. And as far as rap goes, I’m not getting who’s the best rapper. I’m getting like, ‘OK, you got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story about you dancing in the club.’ It’s like, ‘OK, who’s going to be the rapper?’ At some point, somebody’s going to have to break out of that mold and just show us⁠—talk about other things, just rap about other things besides that.”

Cardi took to Instagram to respond to the comment.

“I have seen a lot of people sayin’ ‘Nowadays, female rappers only talk about they pussy and shit. And now that Jermaine Dupri bring it up, now I’m gonna say something about it, right,” Cardi she said in the video. “First of all, I rap about my pussy because she’s my best friend, you know what I’m sayin’? And second of all, it seems like that’s what people wanna hear. I ain’t even gonna front, because let me tell you something: When I did ‘Be Careful,’ people was talking mad shit in the beginning, like, ‘What the f–k is this? This is not what I expected. I expected this, I expected that.’ So it’s like, if that’s what people ain’t tryna hear, then, alright, I’mma start rapping about my pussy again.”

“There’s a lot of female rappers that be rapping they ass off and don’t be talking about they pussy and don’t be talking about getting down and dirty, and y’all don’t be supporting them,” she added. “Y’all don’t be supporting them and they be mad dope. These bloggers don’t support them, they don’t give them the recognition. So don’t blame that shit on us when y’all not the ones that’s supporting them.”

    He’s totally right, who thought we would ever reach a point in society where a man would be saying hey can you put your clothes on and tell us what you really think, lets see your talent. And of course Trashy Cardi defends being a brainless vulgar trash bag.

    as opposed to male rapperss singing about this girl they fucked at the club, this girl they fucked at the club, this girl they fucked at the club..

  • cuzjcacjo

    the ant i just stepped on has more talent than these people

  • mahbelle

    cardi b is a classless talentless vulgar exhibitionist. she’s disgusting as are most female rappers.

    Lol. Men have always tried to push female sexual modesty on women and made it ok to mistreat those who don’t comply. It’s not new, and it’s not revolutionary. Chastity has nothing to do with brains or human worth. One can have brains or talent without submitting to traditional values. Cardi herself has engaged in a lot of toxic behaviors that should not be looked up to for sure, but on this specific point I agree with her. If older male entertainers want entertainment to be all brains and no pleasure/rebellion, they need to walk that walk when it comes to both sexes.

  • Casey C

    yeah, male rappers are super classy, talented, never vulgar, modest people. Absolutely…

  • mahbelle

    i never said that. i hate rap and most male rappers are ignorant thugs who are always getting into trouble with the law.

  • Casey C

    Funny how on a post about male nd female rappers, you happened to only single out female rappers as disgusting. strange.

  • cutitout

    The reason why it seems that way is because the only way the MALE GATEKEEPERS of the industry will green-light, promote, and financially back female rappers is if they are naked. there are plenty of female rappers out there with talent, skill, and substance. he needs to check his homies….

  • mahbelle

    At least male rappers don’t shove their asses in your face and/or have their penises hanging. Female rappers usually dress like hookers and nearly have all their lady bits hanging out.

  • MarcoPolo

    I agree. I really think Cardi B is talented but look at all her performances. Look at even the last performance by Lizzo (also talented) – why are they twerking and doing lap dances? We don’t need you in Beyonce leotards.

  • MarcoPolo

    He should have said this years ago after Nicki Minaj’s disgusting Anaconda.. so embarrassing. She started the stripper rapper look
