Jermaine Dupri tried to make up for his recent controversial comments about female rappers, but hip-hop heads weren’t buying it.

Last Thursday, Dupri caught a lot of flack after he criticized the current generation of female rappers. He made the disparaging comments during an interview with People TV.

 “For me, it’s like strippers rapping,’” Dupri said. “As far as rap goes, I’m not getting who is the best rapper. Oh, you got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story about you dancing in the club. OK, all right.”

A day later, Dupri responded to the criticism with a flyer for a “SoSoDef Female Cypher.”

“After all the calls, DMs, angry tweets and other messages saying ‘I am a major gatekeeper in the hip hop world, why don’t I invest in a female who is out here hustling and making a name for herself?’ I decided to create the  #SoSoDefFemalecypher, details coming soon,” he wrote on Twitter.

The attempted mea culpa was met with more criticism.

Oh well.
