Princess Nokia in part three (part one here, part two here) of her Snobette interview gives her thoughts on how macho culture damages men and sets the stage for rape culture. When asked about the disparity in the way female versus male rap artists are interviewed in the press, she provides suggestions on questions men could be asked, including their thoughts on women artists they appreciate.
On corporate sponsorship of underground music and artists, Nokia says it’s only right that companies pay for the influence of the underground, which until recently they’ve taken from without compensation, noting that while “greed is disgusting, money is a tool.”
Tackling the complex topic of appropriation, Nokia points out that within popular music videos there are clear cut instance of white washing of black ideas taking place, which she views as deliberate actions done in the name of enforcing a system of white supremacy.
Also, if you’re interested in seeing Nokia perform, her upcoming tour dates are listed below, which includes a month long trip to Europe. Check out the flier below.
