Jermaine Dupri seems to still be stirring up trouble with the female rap community. During an interview Atlanta Black Star he clarified his comment about new age female rappers all sound like a bunch of strippers rapping. 
"She said, 'Who's your favorite out of those people?' I said, 'I don't have no favorite.' A favorite, I can't give you a favorite because I feel like they're all talking about the same thing. I was talking about these people's name they gave me. I said, 'It's like strippers rapping,' and it went crazy." Jermaine said 
"What people don't understand is I actually believe that these women that do this type of music should start calling it strap, combining "Stripper" and "Rap." "I think just like we have trap music, they should call it strap. It's the stories of their life."
"Why you ain't say something 'bout the men?'" he asks. "Why you ain't come up two weeks before I went? Why is this coming up now? I fell like it's so many people that was feeling like what  I said already but they was scared to say it."
"So, people ask me, Do I regret what I said?' No, when stuff like that's happening and people in the streets are saying something like, 'JD, I'm glad you stood up and said it,' I feel like I did something... I'm getting press for talking about music. I would never change that for nothing in the world -- I'm talking about music...To be number one trending topic on Twitter talking about music, I didn't plan it, but I'll take it."
