LUPE - BITCH BAD

Yet another Today's Tmrrw review for the likes of Lupe. But this isn't really a review more like a feature..


In light of his new album Food & Liquor 2 : The American Rap Album pt.1 dropping in a few days on September 25th, Thought it would  be cool to put those of you not readily up on Lupe.. ON


This song "Bitch Bad" displays a list of truths and notions about the word bitch, how its portrayed in the minds of those who lack the knowledge to know better, undeveloped minds, like those of today's youth. The song also exploits the words effects on individuals, as well as society as a whole.. its a great song and is in turn a even better video .. Properly depicting what is being said in the song through the video
referencing black  face, a point in time where African Americans were exploited as stereotypical characters for the entertainment of white America. There are times in the video where you can see corks being burned, which further signifies "Blackface" because burned corks is what was traditionally used to paint the faces of characters in these roles..< shits deep **> Lupe Then shows homage, dedicating the video in memory of Paul Robeson (1898-1976) as well as all the other black actors humiliated by Blackface in America..
