TALK BACK: Jay Z Regrets Past Misognistic Lyrics
So several of us from the FAAN Mail Project want to start filming our informal conversations about pop-culture, media, intersections of race/class/gender/sexuality–and put them online. Through these dialogues, we are modeling media literacy and making feminist discourse accessible to a wider audience. We are talking back.
So… here’s our first talk back. It happened after coming across a blog post about a recent Jay Z interview about his new book “Decoded” where he admits that he regrets his lyrics that disrespect women.
Now, goofiness aside, some interesting questions are raised.
We wondered… is this sincere or is this about publicity for his new book? does his regret matter? what does his growth mean for hip hop?
