| August 24, 2012 | 0 Comments

Yesterday, conscious-rapper Lupe Fiasco released a powerful video for his single “Bad Bitch” in an endeavor to shed light on the negative connotation of the phrase” bad bitches”. Director Gil Green, who is known for his mini movie videos, helps Lupe tell the story of young women calling themselves “bad bitches.”  In the video, Lupe creates imagery of a young boy in the car with his mother who is listening to a hip hop record while she calls herself a bad bitch. In another scene a group of young girls are watching a music video that use the word, and cone the image of bad bitch in their mind. The video ends with the little boy and little girl meeting, and their different image of what a bad bitch is.

Yeah, now imagine a group of little girls nine through twelve / On the internet watchin’ videos listenin’ to songs by themselves / It doesn’t really matter if they have parental clearance / They understand the internet better than their parents / Now being the interent, the content’s probably uncensored / They’re young, so they’re maleable and probably unmentored / 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”

Check it out!
