Broadcasting live every friday from 6-8pm on 91.1fm, TRGGR Radio is a space of grassroots intellectual thought that seeks to inspire thoughts into action and TRGGR ideas into motion. This week Chris and Rec sat down with TRGGR family Rosa Clemente to critique Rick Ross’s recent lyric that promotes sexual assault. Recognizing this lyric as only one manifestation of a larger culture that is complicit in rape culture, we unpack what Rosa Clemente terms the ‘Rap Industrial Complex’ and call for outspoken accountability from both men and women through media channels and within our communities. While critical media outlets speak out against pervasive patriarchy, we discuss how to move forward in confronting rape culture before, during and after these individual incidents surface in major media channels.
