"When I did 'Be Careful' people was talking mad (expletive) in the beginning like 'What the (expletive) is this?' 'This is not what I was expecting,'" she said in the Instagram video.
In another Instagram video, she then blamed bloggers for not writing about female rappers who do not typically have sexualized lyrics. She highlighted Rapsody, Tierra Whack, Oranicuhh and Kamaiyah.
“I feel we need to put these girls in more magazines and blogs. Radio DJs play these girls,” she said.
Cardi B wasn’t the only person who disagreed with Dupri’s remarks. Folks headed to Twitter to express their opinions on the topic, and the music producer became a trending topic for much of Friday.
Several said Dupri is out of touch. Many even slammed him for not calling out male rappers who don’t diversify their lyrics.
Others accused him of misogyny.
Some challenged him to sign female rappers who cover other topics in their music.
And a few agreed with the hip-hop mogul. They said he was right but needed to criticize the entire rap genre.
