Glorilla Responds to Fabolous' Criticism of Female Rap: 'What Do Men Rap About?' | WhatsOnRap

GloRilla Claps Back at Fabolous' Critique of Female Rap Styles, Defending Diversity in Women's Stories and Perspectives.

Fabolous, back in July, he expressed his views on the current state of women in hip-hop, pointing out what he saw as a lack of diversity in their styles.

On his Instagram Story, the Brooklyn native shared his thoughts, stating, “[I] love hearing female rappers talking some real s**t. Women are so strong. Have so many stories and perspectives that we need to hear in pure form.”

However, he also noted, “No disrespect to any female rappers out there, but I think there’s only one style of female rap being promoted, programmed, and looked at as successful now.”

Responding to Fabolous' comments, GloRilla shared her perspective in a GQ cover story published on December 13. She countered, saying, “What men rap about? Killing, f**king, robbing, cars, money.”

While not denying Fabolous' observations, she highlighted the differences in upbringing and lifestyles between men and women. “Females rapping about the same s**t, but guess what? We’re not killing. We’re not in gangs. We’re not robbing. That’s what men be doing,” she explained. “What we doing? We’re sitting pretty, we’re popping our s**t, we’re hustling, we’re getting money. We f**k, so we rap about what we do.”

Saweetie also echoed these sentiments in 2022, addressing the prevalence of violence in male-dominated hip hop. On the “Bootleg Kev Podcast,” she emphasized the need to elevate the energy in music, stating, “There’s just so much violence and disrespect in the male music… It wasn’t like, ‘I’ma do this to you, and this, and this,’ you know? I feel like we gotta raise the vibration with the music and get back to having a good time.”

Saweetie specifically compared the current music landscape to that of 2016 and 2017, recalling an era of fun and party-focused tracks from artists like YG, Tyga, Chris Brown, Big Sean, and TeeFlii. It was a time when hits like Drake’s Hotline Bling,” D.R.A.M.’s “Broccoli,” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” dominated the Hot 100 charts.
