DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne, T.I. and Future in 'Bottles' video
Let’s see if I have this right: a woman is basically an object that you order just like a drink. in the new video for DJ Khaled’s “Bitches & Bottles (Let’s Get It Started)” featuring T.I., Lil Wayne, and Future, they are ordering “bitches and bottles” and if they — the girls, not the bottles— aren’t pretty they’ll send them back (yeah, because these dudes are so hot).

They have six “sluts” on their “all fours” and it’s going to be one big party. They’re going to get “stupid retarded.” Yeah, like that phrase isn’t going to get them in trouble. Did they learn nothing from the Black Eyed Peas?
And my favorite part? The woman who is tagging the car is wearing a blinged-out mask to keep her from inhaling the fumes from the spray paint. So nice they care. Priceless.
I know hip-hop treating women abominably is nothing new, so part of me wonders why it even still bother me. But these guys all have mothers, sisters, and, in some cases, wives and daughters. Does no one ever encourage them to maybe, just maybe, treat females like humans? I guess if I have to find one nice thing to say about the video, it is a little remarkable that the women are, for the most part, dressed in revealing but not completely trashy outfits and there aren’t closeups of their booties shaking in the camera. I guess that’s what passes for respect these days.
