CeeLo Green Criticizes Nicki Minaj, Megan Thee Stallion & Cardi B; Questioning Their Musical Content

CeeLo Green opened up in a new interview and revealed exactly what he thought about three of the top female rappers right now – Nicki Minaj, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion.

In the feature from Far Out magazine, the 45-year-old musician questioned if people should really be calling the three role models, given the adult content they have been rapping about in their music.

“A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level,” he explained. “There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery.”

CeeLo added, “It’s problematic, we suffer from it because there are those that have nothing to do with it, but it is assumed of everyone. You have the ‘Heads of State,’ like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there in accolade: success, visibility, a platform to influence. Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate.”

He went on, “Attention is also a drug and competition is around…Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position. I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all, [but] it comes at what cost?”

CeeLo was rightfully met with backlash on social media for his comments, with some Twitter users pointing out his own lyrics aren’t something to aspire to.

“Ceelo Green has the audacity to speak on Nicki but not hold male rappers at the same status,” one wrote, with another adding, “CeeLo a f***ing hypocrite & sexist asf. its hella rappers still putting out gang banging drug dealer murder music, while we’re continuously dying via police/govt/interpersonal beefs, yet you point out women shaking they ass as ‘distasteful’ and needing ‘time and place.’ go eat.”

If you missed it, Cardi just recently gave Nicki props for dominating the female rapper game. See what she said here…
