A Hoe By Any Other Name...

Chamillionaire's curse free sophomore CD (and to a lesser extent, Master P's Miller Boyz CD released last week) brings up the issue of curse words in rap music. After Don Imus' ignorant and racist comments Black leaders nationwide took the opportunity to crusade against the perceived problems in rap music, mainly the n-word, bitch, and hoe. While Chamillionaire has never been the one to curse excessively in his rap, his decision to make a curse free record was significant considering his recent success and high expectations for his sophomore album. Given the positive reviews for the album, there's no question (nor should there ever have been any doubt) that rap music can be just as dope, though provoking, and catchy without four letter words. The question that remains is whether banning certain words from rap music will have any effect on the perception of women as "bitches and hoes."
