Jermaine Dupri is still out here talking about female rappers. **MAKE IT STOP**
In a new interview with Atlanta Black Star, the legendary producer doubled down on his previous comments about female MCs all rapping about the same thing — he said what they do is "like strippers rapping" —even going as far to now say that women who make that "type of music," should have their own genre.
"What people don’t understand is that I actually believe that women that do this type of music should start calling it 'strap'," he told ABS. "I think just like we have trap, they should call it strap." While The Shade Room noted that he said he didn't mean harm by the name, later in his interview, Jermaine made it clear that he does not see anything wrong with him calling out today's female rappers.
"So, people ask me, 'Do I regret what I said?' No," he said. "When stuff like that’s happening and people in the streets are saying something like, 'JD, I’m glad you stood up and said it,' I feel like I did something. … I’m getting press for talking about music. I would never change that for nothing in the world — I’m talking about music. … To be a number one trending topic on Twitter [talking] about music, I didn’t plan it, but I’ll take it."

"Ok guys. So I have seen a lot of people [say] that 'nowadays all female rappers do is talk about their pu**y' and sh*t and now that Jermaine Dupri brung it up, now I'mma say something about it. First of all, I rap about my pu**y because she my best friend. And second of all it's because it seems like that's what people what to hear," she said before further explaining how she caters her music to her audience. "I ain't even gonna front. Let me tell you something, when I did "Be Careful," people was talking mad sh*t in the beginning. Like, 'What the f**k is this? This is not what I expected.... I expected this ... I expected that.' So, it's like, if that ain't what people trying to hear, then alright, then I'mma start rapping about my pu**y again."
"Second of all, there's a lot of female rappers that be rapping their a** off and don't be talking about their pu**y and don't be talking about getting down and dirty and y'all don't be supporting them and they be mad dope," Cardi shared. "So don't blame that sh*t on us when y'all not the ones that supporting them."
The "Press" rapper later posted a second video, in which she named four talented female rappers that "don't rap about they vajayjay," and asked her fans, DJs, blogs, and magazines to support them. "Let me tell you about some rappers that are really f**king dope that are really rapping their a** off and I don't feel they get the recognition they deserve. Tierra Whack, Kamaiyah, Rapsody [and CHIKA]. They be rapping their a** off. I feel like we need to put these girls more in magazines, blogs, [and on the radio]," she shared. "My fans, I want you to hear these girls 'cause these girls can rap their motherf**king a** off. And we need to support them. And they don't rap about they vajayjay, they don't rap about sucking d**k and they dope a** rappers."
