Bitch Bad is a very clear songs with its meaning toward women and many other ideas and concepts that Lupe Fiasco carefully put into his song and music video. The video starts off with Lupe Fiasco singing his song and then one sees a mother and her little son in the car singing Lupe Fiasco’s bitch bad song and the little boy puts the concept of bad bitch and connects it with a his mother which is a strong independent woman. The next important scene that comes up are three little girls sitting around a computer watching a music video and they connect the idea of a bad bitch to a woman/ girl who does not respect herself and treats herself as an object just like men would treat her. The other scene that I think plays a very important role throughout the entire video is they show a black male and female getting dressed up for the music video and show the black male putting what society considers “thug” clothes on, and shows the female putting what society also knows as “ghetto” clothes on. This idea shows that just like in the old days where actors would participate in Blackface Shows, that today society participates in the exact same thing just does not make it so noticeable, and does a better job in covering it up. In the article “ Lupe Fiasco Bitch Bad Starting an Important Discourse” I found her points very clear and true. In this article they realize what Lupe Fiasco was trying to do and recognize that immensely, but at the same time do not support the way he tried to tackle the problem. In the article there main points were that the song and music video do not look at all the ideas and traits of a woman to be calling her that, and another very important one was what makes Lupe Fiasco so important that he gets to determine the definition of this very sensitive subject. One of the last points that I thought was very valid was a point that they made at the end of the article, which is there is no such thing as a bad bitch and a good bitch that either way one uses the word it is demeaning in someway. This is a very sensitive subject as i said before but it comes down to a very simple answer if you want someone to respect you, one has to respect themselves first.
