MC Lyte: Fetty Wap is Hip Hop’s Most Feminist Rapper (Watch)

Misogyny has always been a part of hip hop, but the genre has its share of emcees who go against the tide.

According to MC Lyte, one of those artists is Fetty Wap.

“He may have a very unique way of presenting his ideas, but he does love women,” she said on a panel called, “Hip-Hop: Women’s Vulnerability and Voices,” held during a White House Council on Women & Girls summit last Friday (Nov. 20).

Lyte co-signed the sentiment of moderator Charlene Carruthers, who feels Fetty could easily be most feminist artist in hip-hop today.

“For what he’s up against in this climate with all of the other emcees, he’s taking a stand. He’s being pretty courageous right now with what it is that he presents in his music, because it’s really not the norm.”

Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Common, and Talib Kweli were among the other rappers Lyte believed addressed women respectfully in their work. As for J. Cole, Lyte said that she loved him, but “sometimes he can say something a little out the box.”

Addressing the point that hip-hop is meant to be provocative and challenging, Lyte said, “You win the challenge when you’re able to get your message across without degrading your sister.”
