I hate the message it sends to our community, to our young girls, in particular.
You think young girls, already completely and totally surrounded by the 'baby mama' phenomenon, will be able to discern that this is a 'keep ya head up' type of song, rather than an encouragement, albeit a subtle one, to perpetuate the behavior that leads to these anthems?
While I understand, on some level, why folks are defending the song and its message, I simply can't.
Actually, I *can't* understand why folks are defending the song given all that's going on in our community. But, to each his own.
Nope. Can't clap to this. Not at all.
