This song Bitch Bad by Lupe Fiasco is so important to this generations mentality. Its a double standard set out there unconsciously we are played into it. read and i hope you enjoy.
Bitch bad, woman good, lady better. Now imagine there’s a kid, maybe five or four years old riding round with his mother listening to the radio then a song comes on and not far off from being born, he doesn’t know the difference between right and wrong. Not to make it too complex, let’s just say shawty has an undeveloped context about the perception of women these days. His mother sings along and this is what she says :-
and other rhyming words like cabbage and savage and baby carriage and other things that match it. Couple of things that are happening here, First he’s relating the word “bitch” with his mama, comma and because she’s relating to herself, his most important source of help, and mental health, he may skew respect for dishonor.
Now imagine a group of little girls nine through twelve on the internet watching videos listening to songs by themselves
It doesn’t really matter if they have parental clearance cos they understand the internet better than their parents. Being the interent, the content’s probably uncensored, they’re young, so they’re maleable and probably unmonitored. A complicated combination, maybe with no relevance. Until that intelligence meets their favorite singer’s preference
“Bad bitches, bad bitches, bad bitches that’s all I want and all I like in life is bad bitches, bad bitches”. Now let’s say that they are less concerned with him and more with the video girl acquiescent to his whims. Ah, the plot thickens, High heels, long hair, fat booty, slim. Reality check, I’m not tripping
They don’t see a paid actress, all they see is just what makes a bad bitch.
Disclaimer: This rhymer, Lupe’s not usin’ bitch as a lesson but as a psychological weapon to set in your mind and really mess with your conceptions, discretions, reflections, it’s clever misdirection cause, while I was rappin’ they was growing up fast nobody stepped in to ever slow them up, gasp! Sure enough, in this little world the little boy meets one of those little girls and he thinks she a bad bitch and she thinks she a bad bitch. He thinks disrespectfully, she thinks of that sexually. She got the wrong idea, he don’t wanna fuck her. He thinks she’s bad at being a bitch like his mother. Momma never dress like that, come out the house, hot mess like that. Ass, titties, dress like that. All out to impress like that. Just like that, you see the fruit of the confusion. He is caught in a reality, she is caught in an illusion. Bad mean good to her but she is really nice and smart but bad mean bad to him, bitch don’t play your part but bitch still bad to her if you say it the wrong way but she think she a bitch, what a double entendre.
Bitch bad, woman good, lady better, they misunderstood. You’re misunderstood. Bitch bad, woman good, lady better, greatest motherhood.
