"Rapper Lil Wayne has certainly had his fair share of critics, but probably none quite like this. Two girls, ages 9 and 10-year-old, recently took to YouTube to rap an official letter to Weezy about his disparaging lyrics about women. They’re going by the name Watoto From the Nile, and in a professionally produced video and song, both rap over the beat to Wayne’s song 'I’m Single.' And you know what? It’s good. Really good. 'I’m a girl that’s only ten/But for my sisters I must represent,' the first girl raps. Then the nine-year-old takes her turn. 'My daddy told me I’m a queen/But you call women other things/It makes me mad/I can’t pretend/Sir/Don’t call me out my name again.'”

"[W]hen anti-bullying advocate and journalist Anderson Cooper questioned the controversial rapper about his misogynist and homophobic lyrics, Eminem gave a rather shocking reply to the question stating he was “attacked” on his violent lyricism towards women and the LGBT community because he’s a White rapper.
The 37 year-old Detroit emcee says, “I didn’t invent saying offensive things,” and suggested Black rappers aren’t singled out the way he has been.
“I felt like I was being singled out, and I felt like, is it the color of my skin?” The rapper continues, “There’s certain rappers that do and say the same things that I’m saying, and I don’t see no one saying anything about that.”

'Treva: Touching on that I'm trying to think of a culture in which women really do get a good wrap. [How] Hip-Hop treats women is not extraordinarily different from how we treat women in the world. Hip-Hop is in response to a culture where we're talking about one in four women being raped in their lifetime, if that's not a misogynistic culture then I don't know what is. We're talking about a culture where one in 12 men will rape a woman, if that's not misogyny, I don't know what is. 72 cents on the dollar is what women make for every dollar that a man makes."
