Jay-Z Still Calling Women Bitches: Right or Wrong?

by at . Comments

Last week, a report surfaced that in light of the birth of his daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Jay-Z would no longer be referring to women as bitches in his lyrics.

The story was met with universal praise. Too bad it was false.

Jay-Z personally told the New York Daily News that the story was fake. While he did not formally announce that he will continue to call women bitches, by denying the contrary, implicitly, the message is that he may continue to do so at will.

The words attributed to Jay-Z may have been fake, but the response of countless fans to what they thought was his change of direction was still very real.

Is it wrong for the new father to continue to use the word "bitch" (among other more choice words)? When Blue's mom is such a champion of strong girls?

Jay is far from the only rapper to face such criticism, of course.

Eminem, a father of multiple daughters, has defiantly said that music is art and his lyrics are not a reflection of him as a person or the way he treats women.

Still, for a lyrical maestro like Jay, would anyone object if he omitted a few degrading terms? Should he be expected to, considering what his craft is?

You tell us: Is it okay for Jay-Z to call women bitches?

Gay-Z is undoubtably the most overrated rapper of all time and if it weren't for Barbara Streisand he would be the most overrated performer of all time.
He would have been forced out the the rap game over ten years ago if Tupac and Biggie would have lived.

Why would people be upset at Jay Z? This is the same man that thinks calling people the N word is appropriate, and we should just flip negative terms into terms of endearment. Uh yea Jay Z isn't exactly the most educated and over the past few months my eyes have began to open to see just how small minded Jay Z and his wife really are. When Jay Z met Beyonce and decided she was good enough to bear his last name & mother his children, shouldn't that have been enough to make him stop saying the B word. If he didn't have enough respect to stop saying it for his Wife than why would we be foolish enough to believe that he would stop saying it because of his daughter. Just a thought

Of course it's WRONG. Maybe when his daughter gets a little older and hangs out with rappers that call her a bitch, he will stop using the word himself. Anywho, I couldn't care less about Jay-Z and wouldn't buy his music either way...

P.S.
Rappers do Not say too much about women when they have the Need to call them B!tches in their songs, but it tell a lot about the rappers who continues to use such a Negative word when referring to women. Considering the fact that their mothers,sisters, aunts wives and girlfriends are women, it seems that common sense would remind them that the word B!tch is Never used with the intent to be a compliment. Is there at least one CD in the Carter music catalog that does Not have the "B" word?? Just asking!!

if you buy jay z music you know what you're getting ... i dont agree with his lyrics but he is a rap artist from the streets and rap IS an art form. if you dont like it thats fine, but it doesnt make him a bad person or father just because his lyrics are not pc.
