- 'Hip hop presents a very rigid and narrow version of manhood - one that suggests that to be a "real man" you must be strong and tough, you must have a lot of women and money, you must always be in control, and you must always dominate women and other men.'
- 'If you do not live up to these ideals, you will be ridiculed for not being man enough. You will be called names like "soft, weak and wimp.'
In Jay Z's music video, Big Pimpin, he is basically acting the exact same how 50 cent acts in his video. For example they both act like they are kings because they are both super rich. They are doing this by getting all the girls around them and having super expensive properties.
The second statement I completely disagree with as well as you will not necessarily be called names like 'soft, weak and wimp' for not acting all hard like 50 cent and Jay Z.
