Fight the Power! Chuck D. Wants More Women in Rap, Too

Apparently I'm not the only one thinking about the lack of women in hip-hop this week. Last night Starpulse posted a brief quote from Chuck D., front man for seminal rap group Public Enemy who has now become a producer, author and living legend. Chuck has apparently decided that this year he will focus on promoting female artists, songwriters, and executives in the hip-hop scene, beginning with his own signees, Creww Girl Order. I'm sure part of this is just the work of a label head promoting his new talent, but talk like this from one of the most notable names in rap can only help.

Rap any more that...

Besides, if at first the rap was protest poetry, a voice of slums, city bottoms now it has regenerated in any glamour pop-music, the American equivalent of "the French chanson", with that only a difference, that in clips of modern rappers on a background twirl by backs busty "chocolates" or goats aforementioned basketball players skip.
