There is lavish killing here, perhaps enough to satisfy all male black readers.
While the artist uses derogatory terms for the female, this is not the driving force behind his work. Here, any misogyny is secondary to the aesthetic appreciation of the work: the lyricism of the rapper is all about flow, rhythm and rhyme. To judge hip-hop in terms of its sexist references, is to fundamentally misunderstand it.
Nevertheless, I maintain some degree of discomfort with proclaiming that I enjoy a genre of music which refers to women in such a vile way. But does my discomfort with sexist terminology mean should I prefer Emilie Autumn’s ‘feminist’ music?
‘Does Jesus like my hair, well I don’t think he fucking cares’. Take that patriarchy, and your imposition of white male heroes upon me! What about Jesus’ wife? Why do we never hear about her? Answer: sexism! I for one am far more interested in what Emmeline Pankhurst thinks of my hair.
In my humble and subjective opinion, and I stress this is just an opinion, Autumn’s music is definitely, completely fucking worthless. While it’s true, ‘hair’ does almost rhyme with ‘cares’, a good musician this does not make. Nor does it make me a bad feminist for saying so.
