Plain and simple: Is the rap industry made to be more difficult for women? In an interview in 2015 and plenty of interviews after, Safaree made claims to co-write Nicki Minaj's music.
"Every time it came to writing raps and doing music, it was her, me, and the beat," he says. "She doesn’t do it by herself. It's me and her. Don't discredit me on what I've done for you."
And that was just 2015. There's been plenty of instances up until recently:
Women in the industry often seem to get discredited for their talent. Foxy - we said Jay-Z and Nas wrote her raps. Lil Kim - We said Biggie wrote her raps.
Can a women not be as talented as men in the rap industry?
