“There is a million artists rapping, there is a million female artists out there rapping,” he told TMZ Reside. “What my statement was, was about the 3 that she asked me about – it wasn’t a common conversation about female rap. But everybody turned it into that. Everyone was like, ‘He mentioned all female rappers sound like this’. And I am like, ‘I by no means mentioned all female rappers, I by no means mentioned that a single time’.
“The a single point I want to make positive I am clear a single, individuals preserve saying (I am) ‘sexist’, but I am so far from a sexist – let’s not do that, that is terrible.”
Jermaine added he believes his comment wasn’t the initially time Cardi has heard a comparable accusation, explaining: “When I saw what Cardi mentioned, Cardi began her message off by generally saying ‘Now that Jermaine Dupri has mentioned it, I am gonna address it’. So that indicates to me that a person else had currently mentioned it to her, or she’s heard it just before. So I just really feel like it really is anything that individuals have currently been speaking about for some purpose mine just became the loudest.”
