Music video: Lupe Fiasco released symbolic clip Bitch Bad
Lupe Fiasco has just dropped a powerfull and inspirational music video supporting his latest song "Bitch Bad". Released on Wednesday August 22nd on RapFix, the clip was filmed in a retro style and shows Lupe rapping on a theater stage while some models give performances to describe the meaning of the B-word and its bad affect in the African-American community. In the song, Fiasco lyrically contemplates the long-term psychological effects of the word "bitch," by weaving together a narrative of both a young boy and girl who are separately exposed to the degrading language.
Gil Green-directed clip also features a mother who at some point tells her young son that she's a "bad b****." There is also a young lady who earns money by seducing males, and another girl who wants her body to look more perfect by applying what seems to be cosmetic injection to her booty. A symbolic scene where a young man and a young woman sport blackface in a dressing room is also featured in the clip.

"Bitch Bad" is lifted off the Chicago MC's upcoming album Food and Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album, which is due in the U.S. on September 25. Upon the release of his video, Lupe told MTV, "Whether right or wrong, some things need to be said in order to start a conversation... that's all I try to do with my music."
