Eminem and the F-Word: Why Does Rap Still Tolerate Homophobia?
The game has a long history of beating up on women, no matter how many rappers were raised by their mommas. Like gays, broke people and haters, women were a convenient punching bag for the bars before there even was rap. Earlier this year, Rick Ross briefly landed in hot water for some rapey lyrics , but was quickly forgiven.
Despite the past, a new movement of unapologetic femininity has taken hold of rap in the form of Drake , but that wasn't always the case. Bizarre is the only member of D12 that can compete with Eminem for bottom of the barrel misogyny. There's the crowd favorite! The undisputed champion of misogyny whose anger can be easily traced to his mommy issues.
L was not playing at all on this one, letting loose his nefarious roof plans with no regard for human life. This lyric is a crossover of misogyny, and the Chicago Drill scene's obsession with oral sex over vaginal. This kid is going to spend his entire life in jail, and there's nothing anyone can do about it. With lines like this, however, he might deserve it. Every day, a child is born to a woman who will someday grow up to think, talk and rap just like this.

The 15 Most Misogynist Lines In Rap History
According to the book Angry Blonde , this was Eminem's first "real" song, and was when he first came up with the whole "Slim Shady" theme. Some of the song's lyrics started disputes with other white rappers, namely Everlast , Miilkbone and Vanilla Ice. All three artists later released diss tracks against Eminem. Although Eminem dissed Vanilla Ice in other tracks such as "Marshall Mathers" and " Role Model " , he did not reply to either him or Miilkbone after their respective disses.
I remember feeling that there was something inherently different about Hill, that she held some kind of secret that could only be revealed by letting each interlude play its course — that this kind of music came from a different planet than what I heard on the radio, which at that point consisted of mostly Top 40 Disney hits and the occasional Christmas carol. And while she became the first woman to be nominated in 10 categories in a single year of the Grammys, her success did not absolve her from the cultural backlash that female artists have come to know all too well. Because she challenged the basic structure of the music industry and refused to fit the pre-established mold of an up-and-coming star, she was incredulously torn down by the media. The way Hill was colored in a light of madness is ironic in , as her work is directly sampled in top-charted hits and her influence can be seen at almost every level of our culture, musically and otherwise. The fact that hip-hop has become the most widely-consumed genre of music adds another layer.
