Trini Trent TV: Real Men in Music


    Dame Dash is a “real man.” Well, at least that is what he kept repeating during his recent interview on The Breakfast Club, and he wants us all to know we are not on his level.

    For over an hour, Dash put down every man, including Breakfast Club host DJ Envy, for having jobs. That is because, with his patriarchal logic, a man must never have a boss. Instead, he must on work for himself and own his own business.

    Yes, in the amazing mind of Dash, men who seek stability through regular employment so they can provide for their families and raise their children are weak.

    So says the person who is so clearly insecure about his own sexuality that he said the word pause at least 10 times during the first 30 minutes because you know, we need to know that he is no way gay.

    Dash’s interview did, however, provide us with a perfect example of the hypermasculinity expressed by black men desperate to assert their manhood. In fact, it is an extreme case of a similar behaviour exhibited by Drake.

    In this episode of Trini Trent TV, I address both men as well as Chris Brown, who also recently appeared on The Breakfast Club.

    Brown, on the other hand, displayed odd hypersexual behaviour when he boasted about his desire to have children at the same time with Karrueche Tran and Rihanna. Forget building a stable family unit with one woman. No, Brown just wants to spread his seed as far as he can.
