Lupe Fiasco: Bitch Bad
Broken down into acts, ‘Bitch Bad’ is a theatrical masterpiece with a hard-hitting message underlying the song: the misconstrued perceptions of women. Lupe creates a mellow yet psychological flow and in true Lupe style incorporates wordplay and serious messages. Dressed in black, he is educating the viewer about the word ‘bitch’, a word overused in the music industry. Lupe being Lupe, he is never shy of talking about the hypocrisy of the industry and sensitive issues to some. Both song and video are crafted beautifully and from the looks of it may definitely be used in gender studies at university, and at pro-women campaigns. The song will be featured on Lupe’s upcoming album, Food & Liquor 2, releasing on 25 September 2012.
