Lu raps about the negative affect of the B-word in the African-American community in the retro-styled clip directed by Gil Green.
Lupe Fiasco has just dropped an inspirational music video in support of his new song "Bitch Bad". Filmed in a retro style, the clip, which was debuted on RapFix, shows Lu rapping on a theater stage while some models give performances to describe the meaning of the B-word and its bad affect in the African-American community.
At one point, there's a mother who tells her young son that she's a "bad b****." There is also a young lady who earns money by seducing males, and another girl who wants her body to look more perfect by applying what seems to be cosmetic injection to her booty. A symbolic scene where a young man and a young woman sport blackface in a dressing room is also featured in the clip.
"Bitch Bad" is lifted off the Chicago MC's upcoming album "Food and Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album", which is due in the U.S. on September 25. Upon releasing the Gil Green-directed music video for the song, Lupe told MTV, "Whether right or wrong, some things need to be said in order to start a conversation... that's all I try to do with my music."
