    One thought on “Pimps Up, Ho's Down: Hip Hop's Hold on Young Black Women”

    1. This is a fantastic book about the social impact of Hip Hop on black women- and how they shape their self perceptions on the pervasiveness of the projected image of what a black woman is by Hip Hop. I have always thought I had ignored the messages of the male chauvinist rappers, but in reading this book, I realized how much of this language had been adopted by many of my male programmer friends and was used in day to day conversation. More than anything else, this book made me angry. Poverty war [...]

    2. This book is written by a Vanderbilt professor. She explores the paradox of young black womens' roles in hip-hop, being portrayed as sexually insatiable vixens yet playing an enthusiastic role in hip-hip today. "I do urge young black women to be more politically conscious about the choices they make and the opportunities they take." ~ Sharpley-Whiting

    3. This short book provides a lot of insight into the role of women in hip hop culture. Sharpley-Whiting points out that hip hop is built on a paradoxical relationship to women, in which it simultaneously needs women to survive as an industry, but at the same time it exploits women in many ways. The author is sympathetic to hip hop culture and does a great job of examining the nuances of where women's agency fits into this picture. Nonetheless, Sharpley-Whiting is still engaged in a feminist projec [...]

    4. Overall, I feel like this was a well-written book. It has a central thesis that is strongly illustrated. The examples a well chosen and enhance Sharpely-Whiting's viewpoints. I feel like I would've enjoyed this book more if it had been better edited. Sharpely-Whiting jumped around when it came to topics. A chapter about how the idealization of "white beauty standards" by African-American men effects darker skinned women involved discussions of Video Vixens, sex trade, Brazilians, modeling, adver [...]

    5. "Pimps" made me very glad I don't pay any attention to lyrics. It probably doesn't surprise anyone that rap can be misogynistic and violent. What Sharpley-Whiting is concerned about is how it affects the expectations and self-image of the young black women who listen to it. Her conclusion: not positively.Unfortunately, I can't say much more than that about the book. She covers so many topics, from sex tourism in Brazil to cultural assumptions about beauty, that you kind of lose track of where sh [...]

    6. I am still digesting a lot of this book's content. I am a birth parent of three males who grew up during different phases of hip-hop and I had an awareness of how the music shifted but I really felt that my understanding on how women are treated and viewed within the culture was opened up and expanded by reading this work.

    7. I loved every minute of this book. I found Whiting's commentary so on-point that I pulled out a pen and began marking up my book and making notes in the margins of the information that I wanted to save for later. Being that this book was written in 2007 I would love to hear a "part 2" of this book, since so much has changed in hip hop since then.

    8. This book is pretty intense. It's a look at the negative impact Hip Hop and Hip Hop culture has on women, particularly black women. It's written primarily to an audience of Hip Hoppers, rather then those outside the culture. In other words, it's not meant as fodder for a case against Hip Hop, but rather an appeal and critique to those inside it on why elements need to change.

    9. if you're already into hip hop and gender the book is pretty much a review of the basics; i thought she would be more of a hater, but she really is about an open dialog about gender (feminism) and hip hop;i totally dig the arguments about sex as a transaction/commodity in hip hop culture

    10. I really enjoyed this book. Sharpley-Whiting did a wonderful job exploring the gender politics in the music I love so much--yet often find myself despising for too many reasons (the overwhelming amount of misogyny being one of them).

    11. Valuable insights, but the author jumps from topic to topic so quickly that it can feel kind of unwieldy and dizzying as you read. Still, the thesis is never lost, and this is a well reasoned and argued text.

    12. My birthday gift for Arthur. I want him to read it for his niece, Millicent. It repeats much of what I already know, but I don't like Hip Hop and Rap so I really skimmed through the last couple chapters.

    13. Every bit as good as I thought it would be, and a fairly comprehensive look at Hip Hop via the agenda of women of color, its impact on their perceptions and their imprint on the genre.

    14. Pretty good book dealing with female troubles in hip hop. My big complaint would be that she only focuses on the negative. Come on, give us some hope

    15. Very informative. The author really has a fascinating look on sexuality in modern hip hop, in particular from a woman's view.

    16. really great, a lot better than the hip hop wars which i found pretty didactic and trying too hard to be a manifesto. this has a much more explicit feminist agenda without being too preachy.

    17. There is so much one could say about being a woman and liking hip hop; this author is just really failing to say anything. We'll see. Nope, it didn't get better. Back to the library.
