Pitch Bad If words are a rappers tools for success, then that’s exactly what Lope Fiasco did when he wrote his latest video “Pitch Bad”. Lope In this song is blatantly explaining that the word pitch should never be used to describe or feature any women. Thus Lope starts the song off “Pitch Bad, Women Good, Lady Better, They misunderstood”. When Lope said women better, he meant that calling a women “pitch” Is a term that should not be used to associate a lady with, and that the women is the right term and even the word lady is a higher step.
But to understand Lope we have to track back the origin of how the word “pitch” is used in rap music. The Carotid action that motivated Lope too even have a video would have to relate to all the negative influences that videos in the past have shown demeaning women. With rap music changing now back in the ass rappers didn’t as often refer to women as a bad pitch, but with all the new videos endorsing this new urban lingo it’s hard to ignore. When for example we have a rapper named Webb who has written a song ladled Bad Blotch, In the video it’s exactly what you’d expect to see form a song entitled “Bad Blotch”.
The video takes set in a mansion somewhere In Miami and shows a quantity of good looking women In bathing suits dancing around and showing off their body to prove that she’s a bad blotch. This Is only one example of many, Knell’s “Tip Drill” video, Ill Jon and the east side boys “Get Low” video, these videos all have something to do with not showing respect to women and just trampling over them ND referring to them as nothing more than a “Bad Pitch”. This cultural trend of calling a female pitch and letting the youth know is one of the issues that Lope tackles in this video and needs to be heard by all.
The Ethos that’s shown in Lope Fiasco’s “Pitch Bad” is mostly revolving around character and values. Lope may have had the means to tell his audience to have character and values that you should pass on to your children. Lupus’s character has always seemed to me that he’s not your average rapper, when other rappers were avian half-naked women all around them and pleasing them to their whims, Lope was talking about his childhood and how he used to skateboard and ride with his friends.
Never have I seen women in Lupus’s video’s degrading their selves; Lope has even had an interview once explaining that he will never do that to his fans that are of younger age. So when hear Lope on this track I can fell that he’s very serious about this, he’s an artist who has a lot of passion for what he does and I can appreciate that notion. The only thing about this piece is that Lope is only one sided in this argument, he’s really not trying to hear any of the oppositions arguments and sort of declares his right.
Rhetorical Analysis By alkaline when he wrote his latest video “Pitch Bad”. Lope in this song is blatantly explaining When Lope said women better, he meant that calling a women “pitch” is a term that With rap music changing now back in the ass rappers didn’t as often refer to women called Bad Pitch, in the video it’s exactly what you’d expect to see form a song entitled “Bad ditch”.
