Da Brat is defending her big bro Jermaine Dupri, after he pissed off a few people in the music industry– specifically female rappers.
Jermaine Dupri is a legend in the music world, and as a legend, he comes with his own set of opinions on the current state of the rap game. Overall Da Brat defends Jermaine Dupri on his perspective.
His latest opinion is that female rapper need to step their game up if they want to be the best. Jermaine called the current wave of female artists, like Cardi B and City Girls, “stripper rappers.”
“I can’t really say. The only reason I can’t say [is because] I feel like they all rapping about the same thing and I don’t think they’re showing us who’s the best rapper. I think they’re trying to show—for me—um, it’s like strippers rapping. As far as rap goes, I’m not getting who is the best rapper. I’m getting, like, okay, you got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story about you dancing in the club. OK, all right. [But] who’s gonna be the rapper?”
Not surprisingly, his comments led to a lot of controversies and left many women feeling sour. All except Da Brat. While she was in LAX on Tuesday, Da Brat gave her opinion on what JD said to TMZ cameramen.
“Everything Jermain Dupri does is done strategically. He knows what he’s doing. He’s a genius. You should be thankful that the conversation is even started now, all female rappers, because now the focus is absolutely on us…new, seasoned, legends. All that.”
However, no matter if Jermaine is right or wrong, it’s obvious that Da Brat would never say anything to go against him. In her mind, Jermaine is doing female rappers a big favor by calling attention to them.
