Jermaine Dupri says some female rappers should name their genre “Strap.” The producer recently sat down with Atlanta Black Star to suggest a name for the sub-genre after previously saying the current female rappers are not “showing us who’s the best rapper. For me, it’s like strippers rapping.”
The remarks drew ire from lots of people on social media and even caused Cardi B to hit back on Instagram.
Dupri stands behind his comment and says the women should own their genre. “What people don’t understand is I actually believe that these women that do this type of music should start calling it strap,” he continues, fusing the words “stripper” and “rap.” “I think just like we have trap [music], they should call it strap. It’s the stories of their life.”
