Tonight's Show: The Exploitation of Women in Hip Hop Culture

Tune in tonight to hear a discussion about misogyny in rap music. In particular, we will look at how black women are sexually exploited in rap music videos.

A video that we will discuss in detail is Nelly's "Tip Drill" - one of the most perverse rap videos that has been produced. Some of the most offensive scenes involve Nelly swiping a credit card through a woman's ass, throwing money at women's asses, and explicit woman-on-woman sex scenes. I don't want to promote this video, but if you'd like to watch it, you can view it on You Tube. Viewer discretion is advised!

Here are some links to some interesting articles we found related to misogyny in hip hop culture:

Please join us tonight from 8:30 to 9:00pm (MST) on CJSW 90.9 fm, or online at Our show will also be available to download incase you miss it live!
