At the very least, a stereotype, but this isn't the first time. Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, have written similar sentiments in songs.

Michael Jackson is probably the only white guy who could get away with making a stereotype like this without all hell breaking loose.

She shouldn't have said it. She should stick to stereotypes about poor people who come from the Bronx inner city....... But I don't expect much from rappers who cash in on all things negative.

No. Rappers attribute almost godlike powers to Jewish lawyers for some reason.

There are a million rap lyrics that talk about having Jewish lawyers, or how they’re “making money with the Jews.” It’s high stereotyping, but the Jews aren’t really complaining. Especially the rapper’s managers, lawyers, agents, A&R’s and other label execs.

When they complain, then I’ll listen.

Jay-Z's newest album "4:44" may be a critical and commercial smash, but not everyone is pleased with it.

The Anti-Defamation League criticized the rapper for a couple of lyrics it considered anti-Semitic soon after its release last Friday

A star is someone with name recognition. I don't think Cardi B quite qualifies. If you went on the street and asked 20 people of different socioeconomic groups who Card B is, I'm willing to bet that a majority of them would have no clue.

Just be grateful Shawny didn't try to kill someone. He has a track record of that.
