Rapper LL Cool J has said that hip-hop videos degrade women, stating that more often than not they're portrayed as strippers, or worse.
ChartSingles.net quotes Mr Cool J thus:
"I think that there's more room in the videos for women to be portrayed in a better way, like, classy. I don't mean that they can't be beautiful - can't wear swimsuits, can't wear bikinis - (but) I don't think that every woman has to be a stripper in every video.
"When you have three daughters and you're sitting there watching the video channel and every girl that's on there is like a stripper... I don't think that we have to tell them that this is all there is for you to do in order for you to make it."
