"Glory"- Jay Z
"Before I got in the game, made a change and got rich / I didn't think about using the word bitch / I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it / Now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it / No man will degrade her and call her names."
"Keep Shining" - Shad
“There’s no girls rappin’ so we’re only hearin’ half the truth/What we have to lose? Too much/Half our youth aren’t represented, the better halves of dudes/So we don’t hear about your brain, just your brains/How you rock a fella, Stacey Dash dames/We just need your voice like an a capella/Something in the music’s gotta change...My mom taught me where to keep my heart/My aunts taught me how to sing two parts/My sis taught me how to parallel park/Tried to teach me math but she’s way too smart/My grandma in her 80′s is still sharp/My girl cousin’s an activism at art/They taught me there’s no curls too tight/No mind to bright/No skin too dark to keep shining.
Independent - Webbie ft Lil' Phat and Lil' Boosie
“She’ll buy her own/I don’t think she’ll never look/in a man face waitin’ for him to take care of her/She’ll rather go to work and pay the bills on schedule...I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T do you know what that mean?”
Drake- Good Girls Gone Bad
"“Respect women, I don’t care if they a 2 or a 10/ we don’t beat on Kat Stacks we just bring it to an end”
"Nothin’ On You" - B.o.B. ft. Bruno Mars
“Baby you the whole package, plus you pay your taxes/And you keep it real while them other stay plastic/You're my wonder women call me Mr. Fantastic/Stop... now think about it.”
"Womanology"- Krs One
Big up to the sisters to start up businesses/With nothing but muffins/Still lifting kids/Strong women, work long wome/Not them dumbass dizzy, stupid thong women/King Kong women, bring it on women/Independant women with thoughts and opinions
"U.N.I.T.Y- Queen Latifah"
Instinct leads me to another flow/Everytime I hear a brother call a girl a bitch or a ho/Trying to make a sister feel low/You know all of that gots to go
"The Light"- Common
"I never call you my bitch or even my boo/There's so much in a name and so much more in you"
"Keep Your Head Up" - Tupac
"And since we all came from a woman/Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman/I wonder why we take from our women/Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?/I think it's time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women/And if we don't we'll have a race of babies/that will hate the ladies, that make the babies/And since a man can't make one/He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one/So will the real men get up/I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up
