FEATURE: Misogyny in Hip-Hop - Talib Kweli Speaks Out Again in New Video 'State Of Grace' ft Abby Dobson

In the new video for his track 'State Of Grace' ft. Abby Dobson, Talib Kweli tackles issues about what it feels like for a woman who loves hip-hop and/or grew up listening to hip-hop. "Lost count of how many whores she was called today", "ain’t never been a bitch or a ho but she used to sing along when she heard it in a song", are among the powerful lyrics.
Track from his new album 'Gravitas', available here.

Excellent artwork and song.  Talib knows how to deliver the needed message.

The image of the booty is supposed to confirm some image of masculinity, and the idea is, these men are so vital and so powerful, that these women contrariwise are so dime a dozen… that they don’t matter, they’re just eye candy, they’re worthless.  Sadly I am a professor and this has permeated not just black culture, but swaths of American culture.  Some of these women have learned in a Pavlovian sense to act like skanks and do skanks stuff and guess what, it works! Respect to Talib for starting a dialog that has become stagnate as of late.

i respect the artistic integrity of talib kweli. his social consciousness inspires me. also, he owns his black male privilege in a world invested in destroying our black male power.
