You Don't Have to Listen to Abusive Rappers
Hip-hop has always been a culture that thrives off of young, controversial figures, but with the information that’s already available on the aforementioned artists, it’s impossible for listeners to support them in good conscience. In order to properly reckon with our roles in their success, we really need to stop entertaining and listening to them.

Women's Group Calls on Spotify to Remove Chris Brown, Nelly, and More From Official Playlists
Do men accused of misconduct deserve to have their music in event playlists? These DJs weigh in.
After the rise of the #MeToo movement in October, when survivors of sexual abuse began speaking out about their experiences with new volume and frequency, several powerful men in various segments of the culture were outed for predatory behavior. And that’s led to a wider conversation about sexual harassment and misconduct; in the context of the entertainment and music industries, there’s the thorny question of whether it’s possible or defensible to separate an artist from the art.
In this social climate, DJs are thinking about the role they have to play in all of this.
“As DJs, we literally make a song hot or not,” said Fab Roc, a New York City-based DJ who has spun at corporate pop-up events and local hip-hop and R&B parties. “If we stop playing certain people’s music at events, it speaks volumes and it can also set the trend for people to care.”
Cardi B Says #MeToo Movement Has Ignored Video Vixens: 'Nobody Gives a Fuck'
According to Cardi, it’s not just the musicians and performers who deal with sexual harassment. Video models, often seen and not heard, are typically silenced when they discuss what they deal with, she said. "A lot of video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a fuck," Cardi told Cosmo. "I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, 'So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.'"

Let's Just Kill the Male "Rock Star" Persona Once and for All
There is a pervasive trope that the rock star male musician is dangerous, brutish, and lionized for his sexuality. (We’ve seen this cliché in rap and pop music, too, like with XXXtentacion or R.Kelly.) We, as consumers of the culture, and marketers who have sold this idea, have allowed stage personas be real life and let it continue because they identify as rock stars. There is little effort to make a distinction between the two. And this is what makes it exceptionally hard to have a productive conversation about consent, boundaries, and accountability.
