Lupe Fiasco has never been one to stray from controversy, especially as of late. His single “Lamborghini Angels” went straight for the heart of religion, questioning its effects on society and culture throughout time, and now he’s turning his pen towards the sexes with, “Bitch Bad.”
Opting to release a video accompanying the song as part of its premiere, Lupe dropped “Bitch Bad” on the world late last night and social networks are still teeming with reactions. The song and video focus on the how loose usage of derogatory terms, specifically “bitch,” can mess with the way a child (boy or girl) perceives the world around them. Unlike others who may have touched on the subject, Lupe lays out this message as clearly as possible and backs himself up with simple examples to help further drive his point home. It’s rap with a message, A REAL MESSAGE, and it’s one that actually needs to be heard. You can view the video for “Bitch Bad” below.
Lupe didn’t stop with a new video last not though, there is one more piece of media to share. Following in the steps of Metallica (not really, at least I doubt it), the cover for Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 is completely black. You can view the cover after the jump.
Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 hits stores September 25.
