JT of the City Girls announced on Twitter that she has broken up with rapper Lil Uzi Vert.

SINGLE!— J🫖🪄 (@ThegirlJT) November 23, 2022

JT and the “Xo Tour Life” artist started to let the world know about their relationship in 2019.

The news came as a surprise to many as the now-former couple still showed their love for each other while celebrating the 4th of July holiday.

Last year, Lil Uzi Vert said the “Good Love” artist gave him the best feeling of his life.

In related news, Shenseea also announced on Twitter that she broke up with producer London On Da Track.

During an interview on the Bootleg Kev Podcast, Saweetie says the culture of rap changed from fun party music to “I’mma do this to you and this.” She also adds male rap lacks “empathy and love.”

“I mean, L.A. and other cities, it just goes to show that this is the reason why women is running rap and hip-hop,” The “Best Friend” rapper said.

Moreover, Saweetie strongly believes there is “just so much violence and disrespect in the male music,” She also added, “ You gotta think, like, remember, what was it, like ’16/’17, remember when like YG, Tyga, Chris [Brown], Big Sean, TeeFlii was out? It was fun, party music.”

With Misogyny & Oversexualiztion, Are Women Really Running Hip-Hop?

Recently, The Single Life rapper took to her social media to call out misogyny in hip-hop, where her Icy fans took no time to flood her comments with their two cents.

is misogynistic behavior normal for HIP HOP culture now? 🤔 guess so 🤷🏽‍♀️— iCY MAMiii (@Saweetie) November 23, 2022

One fan commented, saying,

“Is hip hop the only genre being held to the highest standards? Hip hop is a reflection of society and society is misogynistic. This misogyny is seen in country, rock, and pop. It’s also in movies we watch.”

Another Twitter user even said hip-hop needs more women who don’t oversexualize themselves to get the respect they deserve within the industry.

Hip hop needs more female rappers like Missy Elliott, Little Simz, and Rapsody. Dope artists who don't sexualize themselves and rap about real topics outside of sex. That's how women will get their true respect. Offer more than your body. Sex isn't the only thing that sells— Shaun Alexander (@sx2ap) November 23, 2022

From fans’ recent responses, it appears they disagree with the Icy girl rapper, and believe changes need to be made before women can take over.

“Whole Lotta Money Remix” by Boston rapper BIA featuring Nicki Minaj is one of the many referenced tracks that leaked on the internet.

Latto’s version of the song is currently trending amongst over 100 other tracks.

BIA responded to a fan on Twitter after she was asked if the “Big Energy” rapper wrote the entire piece. She replied by giving credit to the original songwriter London Jae for writing the hook.  In addition, the “Same Hands” rapper claimed she wrote her own verses to the song.

The Massachusetts artist tweeted that it doesn’t matter to her who writes the song as long as the public enjoys it.

But Ntm on this bc I really don’t care who writes and who doesn’t. I only care about making the best song I can make— BIA (@BIABIA) November 22, 2022
