In this interview, Dr. Boyce Watkins speaks with Patrice Danielle Donelson from  They discuss Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and the song “Loyal” performed at the BET Awards.  Donelson disagrees with Dr. Watkins’ assessment that the song is disresprectful toward women and has a definition for what it means to be a “hoe.”

Here are some lyrics from the song for you to ponder:

I wasn’t born last night
I know these hoes ain’t right
But you was blowing up her phone last night
But she ain’t have her ringer nor her ring on last night, oh
Nigga, that’s that nerve
Why give a bitch your heart when she’d rather have a purse?
Why give a bitch an inch when she’d rather have nine?
You know how the game goes
She be mine by half time, I’m the shit, oh
Nigga, that’s that nerve
You all about her, and she all about hers
Birdman Junior in this bitch, no flamingos
And I done did everything, but trust these hoes
(CB fuck with me!)
