Chris Rivers & Nitty Scott, MC Flip the Script on Hip-Hop Gender Stereotypes (Video)

There have been a number of Hip-Hop songs over the years with the “Bonnie and Clyde” theme. Tracks like Jay-Z’s “‘03 Bonnie & Clyde,” Method Man’s “I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By” and The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Me & My Bitch” all depict scenarios where the men are doing dirt and they have a woman supporter (or equal) who is always there to hold them down in their times of need. On Chris Rivers’ “I Just Wanna Rap,” he and Nitty Scott, MC take the theme and flip the script. In this account, it is Nitty who is living the life of crime, moving major weight, and actually financially supporting her man and his dreams of being an MC.

The video shows the two hard at work at their respective crafts, both together and individually. Nitty cuts her supply while Chris writes rhymes and, when done, she hands him a stack of cash. In another scene Rivers is shown freestyling on a corner, while Scott is across the street observing…and moving her product. It’s an interesting take on equality of the sexes, both in rhyme and crime.
