Cardi B Responds To Jermaine Dupri's Critique Of Today's Female Rappers

Jermaine Dupri doesn’t see much diversity when it comes to today’s female rap stars, and Cardi B had a response for the So So Def founder. In an interview with People Now Thursday (July 11) promoting his new WEtv documentary, Power Influence & Hip Hop: The Rise of So So Def, Dupri stated that the current slate of female MCs rap about the same topics.

“[Da] Brat was the first female artist to go platinum, so we together broke the mold. Since then, female rappers have been able to sustain and sell a lot of records, more records than guys, but before Brat that wasn’t happening,” said Dupri.

The Atlanta native was asked for his thoughts on Cardi, Nicki Minaj and Meghan Thee Stallion but he didn’t give out glowing reviews.

“I feel they’re all rapping about the same thing. I don’t think they’re showing us who’s the best rapper. For me, it’s like strippers rapping and as far as rap goes I’m not getting who’s the best.” He added that at “some point” female rappers are going to have to spit about “other things.”

The comments caught Cardi B's attention.  “Okay guys I have seen a lot of people saying nowadays female rappers only talk about their p**sy and s**t, and now that Jermaine Dupri brought it up, I’m going to say something,” she explained in a video posted to her on Instagram account Thursday. “First of all, I rap about my p**sy because she’s my best friend and second of all it’s because it seems like that’s what people want to hear.

“When I did ‘Be Careful’ people was talking mad s**t in the beginning like ‘What the f**k is this?’ This is not what I expected. It’s like if that’s what people ain’t trying to hear, then I’m going to start rapping about my p**sy again. And second of all, there’s a lot of female rappers that be rapping they a** off that don’t be talking about their p**sy.. and ya’ll don’t be supporting them and they be mad dope. Don’t blame that s**t on us, when ya'll [are the ones who are] not supporting them.”

Cardi followed up with a second post shouting out Teirra Whack, Kamaiyah, Rhapsody, and Chika, and calling for her fans, media and radio to show them more love. “These girls can rap their motherf**king a** off and we need to support them.”

Dolly Parton Toys With Hopping On Next 'Old Town Road' Remix

Lil Nas X is not letting “Old Town Road” ever get old. The 20-year-old Atlanta native continues to add more and more musicians to various remixes of the record-breaking song.

Last week, he enlisted Young Thug and “The Yodeling Kid” Mason Ramsey, and it looks like another country music legend is looking to hop on another version of the track.

“Y’all think i can get dolly parton and megan thee stallion on a old town road remix?” Lil Nas X asked his millions of Twitter followers at the top of the week (Jul. 15). The “9 To 5” songstress responded to the artist’s inquiry yesterday (Jul. 18) on Twitter with a horse and a unicorn emoji. Megan has not responded to the inquiry... that we know of.

Billy Ray Cyrus– the father of Parton’s goddaughter Miley– hopped on the original remix with Lil Nas X, and performed the song with him at events such as Summer Jam and the 2019 BET Awards.

The track is currently the third longest-running No. 1 hit in the history of American popular music, right behind “One Sweet Day” By Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey, and Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito.”

Premiere: Motivation And Loyalty Reign On euro’s Two Pack, “Never Fold/Day Ones”

Young Money alum euro gives fans a two for one special with the release of his latest singles, “Never Fold" and "Day Ones.”

The song actually splits into two with “Never Fold” serving fans who are a sucker for lyrical mastery and "Day Ones" providing the right amount of victorious thunder and bravado.

"Never Fold" bloomed out of sheer pride and euro’s determination to throw lyrical jabs at anyone coming his way.

“My brother got a hold of the beat from Ayo the producer and he wanted me to record over it,” euro tells VIBE. “He called me out after I passed on the beat due to writer’s block. At that moment, I had to prove a point and that’s what came out of it.”

As for “Day Ones,” the tune shows how euro is rooted in more ways than one. "The motivation behind "Day Ones" is staying true on this journey, never selling out," he explains. "There have been many times we’ve had opportunities to take the easy way, but we have our minds made up to do this our way - the right way, for our people, with our people."

The tracks will be apart of euro's forthcoming album, Don’t Expect Nothing, to be released August 16th. The rapper has resided under the radar but still managed to snag big co-signs from the likes of Lil Wayne and Drake.

Enjoy the tracks below.

The wait is finally over. Rick Ross’ Port of Miami 2 album will be released on the 13-year anniversary of its predecessor, the Maybach Music head announced Tuesday (July 16).

The album's cover art features Ross holding a pendant with a photo of his close friend and manager, Black Bo, who passed away in 2018. In addition to the art work, Rozay debuted a minute-long album trailer where he appears to undergo a baptism.

"Port of Miami started me on this journey,” Ross wrote in June in an Instagram post announcing his 10th studio album. “It's only right I bring it back to where it all started. For my day ones to the new ones, this album is for you."

Earlier in the month, Ross released the singles “Big Tyme” featuring Swizz Beatz and “Act of Fool,” featuring Wale.
