I AGREE!
It is about time that someone took a stand on this matter. However, we really need to approach the women on this matter and help them to understand that power, value and worth and how all of that is not wrapped in a rap video.

I totally agree, because these little girls I see every day think that life really go on like they see in these videos. Also they think that this is how a man is suppose to treat and talk to them. I think it is so sad. I think that it is a great ideal that he's going do that. :)

Maybe, but people are free to make their choices. And they will. It also is on the parents. Cause fortunately they are your first role model.

exactly...@marcus...it's the parents job to explain to their daughters on how they should be treated as women and then explain what's really happening in these videos...women are being degraded whether its their choice or not! Parents dont let your children walk around blindly...teach!

Yea, i totally agree with LL but at the same time women should set higher standards for themselves. If women wouldn't put themselves in that position to be dis respected then maybe they wouldn't be.

Until you get cheap hoes like Beyonce out of R&B the degree of crassness and vulgarity will always weigh heavily upon the industry.

Rap music is an embarrassment to Africa. Blustering about ganster violence, deliberate use of dangerous drugs, and promiscuous sexual congress degrades the black community and destroys our African heritage.
