“I just want to take you out and show you off,” as they sing, can mean, “I’m proud of you and I want the world to know.” But in the context of hip hop — a culture where, in the most basic summation, the casual objectification of women is still socially acceptable — it could be perceived more along status lines. Like, “I snagged a girl this hot, that’s how good I am.” We code a song like “I Won” as sweet instead of problematic from a gender perspective because it’s the lesser of evils in rap. Look, two successful rappers settling down and starting families with career women. It’s part of why Jay Z is no longer vilified for his past. Not using the word “bitch” does not give rappers a free pass.
