Kanye West Questions Rap's Use Of The Word Bitch
Posted by Joseph Lee on 09.03.2012



NME reports that Kanye West has questioned the use of the word "bitch" in rap lyrics. He posted on Twitter: "I usually never tweet questions but I struggle with this so here goes... Is the word BITCH acceptable?"

He then said that he was asked about using the word in his music and "initially was offended by anyone questioning anything in my music". He added that he will "sometimes go back an omit cursing from my records. I like to use profanity as a tool and not a crutch."

He wrote: "Here's the age old question, would we refer to our mothers as bitches? Would we call our fathers niggers or better yet NIGGAS? Perhaps the words BITCH and NIGGA are now neither positive or negative. They are just potent and it depends on how the[y] are used and by whom?"

Kanye West's Watch the Throne partner Jay-Z recently said he wouldn't use the word anymore after his wife Beyonce gave birth to their first child, Blue Ivy Carter. However, the claims were later denied by his representatives.
