As female rappers continue to gain popularity, many of them have spoken out about unfair perceptions towards women in hip-hop. Cardi B recently double standard settlement that, according to them, essentially says that they have to work twice as hard to get half the respect, a sentiment that up-and-coming rapper Latto co-signed a few weeks later.
In a new interview for Nick Cannon’s show on LA’s Power 106, Doja Cat also raises questions about why she believes women face these obstacles. “When you dress up like you’re going for a night out in Miami… People will categorize you and put them at ease, they’ll make it look like you’re not very smart, you’re just a girl. just a rapper,” she said. “Maybe you don’t have a sense of humour, or you’re stuck… like female rappers who are a bit spoiled or less intelligent, I feel like that’s how they look.”
If you’re interviewing musicians, try asking them about their music.

Incidentally, it seems like the interview itself simply confirmed her point, as she later tweeted, “If you’re going to interview musicians, try asking them about their music.” , highlighting how Cannon’s line of questioning seems to have ignored the fact that she has a new album, Her Planet, peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 and produced the singles “Kiss me more“With SZA and”You’re right“With The Weeknd, as well as Deluxe version features Eve’s first rapping appearance since Missy Elliott’s 2017 remix of “I’m Better.”
