Dang, it's sad when a song climbing up the Billboard Hot 100 charts refers to women as hos and bitches. Such is the case with Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow," which had to be cleaned up extensively for radio play. The original "dirty" version is riddled with n-bombs, as well, but it's especially disturbing the women of Wiz's affection are ones he also calls derogatory names.
The song actually serves as a shout-out to Khalifa's hometown of Pittsburgh and his black and yellow Dodge Challenger, but Khalifa manages to squeeze in some jabs toward the ladies that seem pretty random and don't really have anything to do with hometown pride. "Got a call from my jeweler, this just in. Bitches love me 'cause I'm fucking with their best friends. Not a lesbian, but she a freak, though. This ain't for one night, I'm shining all week, ho."
There are so many things wrong with just those four lines. First, Khalifa is encouraging ladies to be alright with guys having sex with both them and their best friends--it's the cool thing to do. On top of that, you don't have to be full-on lesbian to please guys, but you better be OK with threesomes or with making out with ladies. It doesn't mean you have to date a lady, just be willing to hook up with one in front of a guy.
Then there's the fact Khalifa refers to women as bitches and hos. Not ladies, not females, not women, but terms that most often have negative connotations. Khalifa is calling women these names while encouraging them to act out their roles.
He goes on to rap about how he lets his lady get high. Aw, how nice of you, Khalifa, to let your girlfriend get high all on her own.
Maybe "Black and Yellow" succeeds in bringing some good attention to Pittsburgh, but when it comes to talking about how men should treat women, it fails miserably. Before you jam along to the song on the radio, listen to the dirty version. It's so negative that it might make you change your mind about supporting a rapper like Khalifa.
