Girls Call Out Lil Wayne For His Misogyny in Their Own Rap Video (Video)

I’m a huge fan of combining art and activism, especially when it comes from 3 such bold young ladies.

This talented trio of sisters — 10-year-old Nia, 9-year-old Nya, and 5-year-old Kamaria — have made their very own rap video condemning Lil Wayne for his degradation of black women in his music.

The girls, who also call themselves “Watoto From the Nile,” titled the video “A Letter to Lil Wayne” which has become a YouTube hit with nearly 850,000 views to date.

Take a look for yourself!

Here are some of the lyrics from the video:

  • “He talks about drugs and stuff and he call women bad names.”
  • “I think he is disrespectful. He disrespects women calling them bad names.”
  • “The way you talk, the way you act. I hate when you be doing that.”
  • Please Mr. Wayne can you stop all the hurting.”
  • “My daddy tell me I’m a queen. But you call women other things. It makes me mad. I can’t pretend.”
  • “Music is supposed to inspire.”

The song is now available on itunes if you’d like to support these rocking ladies! I know I do!

I know there are more just can't think of their names. And, all that bible packin' preachin' done in their churches gave them a liscense to hold a gun in one hand & a bible in the other & the money they make will set them free. I can bet Nat King Cole is rolling over in his grave of the behavior these kind of so called men.

It's sad when little girls gotta teach a grown man how to behave. He should know better, especially from a father with a daughter. I liked how the video rhetorically asked him if he'd refer to his daughter the same way as he disrepectfully referred to women in general. Y perpetuate hate? It's not necessary.

If we all stood up like these girls we'd have none of this devaluing women rapper crap and we wouldn't be losing our rights in Washington.

Women, we ALL need to stand up and take action! These girls put most of us to shame.

I think that it's wrong for rappers to talk the way they do about women in their songs but on the other hand they defend themselves by saying something that makes a lot of sense, they are only writing about what they see everyday and I'm sure we can only imagine the type of women they encounter on a daily basis so it's hard to write about something you hardly ever see. It's like living in a desert but writing a book on the ocean, if you've never seen it for yourself then it's kinda hard to express your opinions on it. It goes both ways. The women they refer to in their songs need to have more respect for themselves and show these men that they aren't those awful names they call them. Plus the rest of us women really shouldn't get to offended by the lyrics because they are not rapping about us believe me.
