This week, while going through the latest women bashing rap songs out there, and getting pissed off at some of the disgusting lyrics, I came across this video that made me go “Thank You Ladies!”
These three little girls who make up the group Watoto From The Mile, Nia, Nya, and Kamaria aged 10, 9 and 5, did the cutest thing by sending a lyrical letter to rapper Lil Wayne, titled “Letter To Lil Wayne,” where they questioned his lyrics degrading women and promoting drug use.
Its mild and direct: “This message is for Mr. Wayne. I’m sorry but I must complain about what you do and what you say….People say, ‘Say no to drugs,’ so tell me Sir who should I trust. You or them?…I hear you got a little girl. Does she get the same referral you call the world. Not trying to lean. I hope you call her little queen“.
The group has had a huge amount of support for their part in reaching out to Lil Wayne and the like. Off course there are the haters, dissing the girls and running their mouths off.
Some say their parents used them to make money. I say ‘WHO CARES!’ If you can get a message out, and make money from it as well, then good on you!
Yes, they may be too young to understand what they’re talking about, but they are at the age where their innocence is so refreshing, and is exactly what so called ‘adults’ need, as a reminder that trash talking is just that – TRASH!
