The Lyrics Behind the Catchy Beat

It all starts with a catchy beat and a nice hook, and the next thing you know its one of the most popular songs of the year. However, many popular rap and hip-hop songs tend to objectify women. For instance, in the popular song “No Hands” by Waka Flocka, that featured artists such as Roscoe Dash and Wale, is a good example of how the image of women is tainted in the music industry. The entirety of the song is about women dancing while they throw money at them, like if they were strippers. The chorus of the of song is shown below:

Girl, the way you’re movin’ got me in a trance


DJ turn me up, ladies this yo’ jam


I’ma sip Moscato and you gon’ lose them pants


Then I’ma throw this money while you do it with no hands

Girl drop it to the flo’
I love the way yo booty go


All I want to do is sit back and watch you move


And I’ll proceed to throw this cash…

Although many listeners are aware of the offensive and abusive content in these rap and hip-hop songs they are still constantly played on the radio.
