Hip Hop is already doing big things on the Bill Board charts for August- and it’s not even August.
Hip Hop is the most consumed genre of music- and continues to dominate the charts. Hip Hop is scattered throughout Bill Board’s Hot 100 chart through August 5th. Not only Hip Hop, though, R&B too.
- DJ Khaled, Rihanna, & Bryson Tiller- “Wild Thoughts”
- Bruno Mars- “That’s What I Like”
- DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper, Lil Wayne, & Quavo- “I’m The One”
- French Montana & Swae Lee- “Unforgettable”
- Kendrick Lamar- “Humble”
- Post Malone & Quavo- “Congratulations”
- Childish Gambino- “Redbone”
- Lil Uzi Vert- “XO Tour Llif3”
- Future- “Mask Off”
- Khalid- “Location”
That said, Rick Ross’s recent comments should be noted (in agreement with some of Zeba‘s statements on the Huffington Post-let’s keep the conversation going). Maybe we should intentionally spend some time reflecting on the mentality towards women- not only in Hip Hop, but in America. Because on top of all this, current Health Care Bill reform hasn’t shown any knowledge of what women need- childbirth, birth control, survivors of sexual violence all suffer.
However, debates still rage.
