Jermaine Dupri recently joined the pop culture-heavy People Now show to discuss the everlasting impact of Da Brat and spoke his mind on today’s female hip-hop artists. The So So Def founder and “Welcome to Atlanta” rapper started off positive, ticking off the legacy left by Da Brat, before changing gears to express less-than-positive thoughts about modern women rappers.

“Since [Brat], female rappers have been able to … sell a lot of records — actually a lot more records than guys,” explained Dupri. When asked about his favorite contemporary female artist, however, Dupri expressed some disappointment. “I feel like they all rapping about the same thing and I don’t think they’re showing us whose the best rapper. For me, it’s like strippers rapping. As far as rap goes, I’m not getting who is the best rapper. I’m getting, ‘Oh you’ve got a story about you dancing in the club.’”

The backlash was swift. Cardi B, a former stripper herself, took to Instagram to upload a pair of videos directly addressing Dupri. “Don’t blame that shit on us,” Cardi began. “If ya’ll ain’t the ones supporting [female rappers.] … There’s a lot of female rappers that be rapping they ass off and don’t be talking about they pussy and don’t be talking about getting down and dirty, and y’all don’t be supporting them!” Cardi called out a few of her contemporaries, including Rapsody, Tierra Whack and Kamaiyah. “Ya’ll gotta start putting these girls more on ya’ll blogs. … Play their music on the radio.”

Doja Cat was similarly not impressed, calling out “Jermayn Durpi” for not “listen[ing] to [enough] music. … The fucking ignorance is amazing to me. If you were right, then how do I know so many female rappers who are so talented and talk about other things?”

Dupri has yet to respond to either the overwhelming controversy or the direct callouts from Cardi and Doja. Watch his People Now appearance and behold the multitude of reactions below.

Most recently, Cardi appeared on Ed Sheeran’s star-studded No 6 Collaborations Project.
