On my relationship with a rapper


I've been in a committed relationship with a small scale rapper for almost a year now and wanted to write about what it's been like.

I feel like these points apply to almost every relationship.

On my relationship with a rapper

#1 Get ready for a whole other vibe

This relationship really changed my outlook in life. I went from the rather sheltered life I knew to being exposed to my boyfriend and his friends, work and world, which truly enriched me.

I'm from a very sheltered background and getting to know my boyfriend and his friends helped me see beyond my own nose.

I love the way he embraces life like no other guy I've met.

#2 Support his work and watch your relationship thrive

While I don't like the music my boyfriend makes, I still support him wherever I can. It's helped our relationship a lot.

#3 Love joining him on trips

My boyfriend recently went on a business trip to another continent and I was lucky enough to be able to accompany him. Where do I even start... It was beyond amazing. We had a great time, he recorded some songs, felt inspired, and I've probably never seen anyone this genuinely happy.

Getting out of our little routine during the pandemic felt great, especially because all costs were covered by his label.

#4 Take an active interest in his unique hobbies

My boyfriend loved jewelry and knows a lot about diamonds, gem stones and different metals. We enjoy talking about jewelry and try to look at jewelry both online and in person as often as the situation arises to do just that!

#5 Be a muse, an inspiration

This one should be rather straightforward, but it's been beautiful to see how he's taken the impact I've had on him and reflected it in his work.

Also, trust me, the sex will be amazing when your man feels supported by you.

    Well I don't know how you can take credit as a muse and not like what he makes. Just my opinion on that. You say support him ie his career but labeled him as a "small scale rapper", a rapper that you didn't mention the name of. Not supportive to me. Doesn't matter that you're giving little compliment to him, the saying goes " All publicity is good publicity" works here too. I definitely would've searched him and spread his work to my part of the world. Kinda tacky that you mentioned the jewelry part. Sounds like you have an agenda. Sorry for being negative but this is just a real, honest opinion.
    You mentioned the trip over seas and his homies a lot. Is that an open relationship or monogamous?

    Whatever.. Either way, next time you do an exposé speaking about your man in entertainment, MENTION HIS NAME at least. Contribute a bit to the jewelry you're pushing for.
    Good luck and Aloha
    Is this still revelant?

      I think the jewelry part was fine. She said nothing about using him for jewelry or that he was even buying it for her. But everything else was a pretty solid and interesting reply.

      Thank you for expressing our criticism in a respectful way :)

      My boyfriend deliberately makes music that is awful to listen to to figure out the algorithms of different streaming services, which has been working pretty well actually.

      I specified that my boyfriend is a small scale rapper to ensure that nobody thinks I'm dating G-Eazy or something, LOL. I still appreciate and try to empower him whenever I can though, and I didn't want to thwart his achievements.
      My boyfriend got into rap when he supported his friends, and I don't feel comfortable sharing their or my boyfriend's songs, because it's not my place. My boyfriend asked me not to share his songs with anyone online, and I respect that. I think he's afraid of negative feedback, which is understandable.

      I had no intention of coming off tacky when sharing our jewelry hobby. The thing is, we're considering getting into buying and reselling now, but before, we mainly just gazed at pictures on Reddit or went to local jewelers to check out their style. We don't actually buy fancy, expensive jewelry, unless a very nice piece is particularly cheap! And we definitely both contribute to this hobby :)

      I hope that clears some of this up, I definitely don't have an agenda.

    • @Dinklex3 thanks and I may've been a bit salty about something before I wrote this. I thought that the jewelry part I put was a bit of a stretch myself but it was mentioned and the message received and perceived by most when a situation involves finances and relationships, initial thought I believe for most is an assumed agenda aka gold digging. Now I don't know anything about the two of them other than what I gleaned from her description. You consider the info of not having similar interests, she doesn't like his music that he makes, he takes her on trips, buys her gifts and basically takes care of her. So change the character a bit and you have a sugar daddy situation lol..
      I don't know. Use your imagination lol. 🤷

      I think it's so important to get to know other "cultures" - just to be with someone who has different interests than you can be really enriching and important!
      Glad to read that you made it out of your sheltered life.
      Sorry about the abuse.


      thank you and your right its so nice to actually enjoy life and not being controlled yelled screamed at at 44 i damn deserve to be happy i took care of people my entire life for the first time im taking care of my self

    he needs to teach me cos i wanna make dope tracks, i got the rrythm and flow... jus no idea what to say in lyics... most my songs sound good but if u listen to what im saying im not really saying, jus repetive old bullshit about nothing at all lol
    • Anonymous

      Just make that then, lyrics don't matter as much as you'd think as long as the rhythm and flow are lit!
      I can only highly recommend to start publishing your songs, even when you think they're trash - my boyfriend did just that 3 years ago, some algorithm pushed just one of his songs and he made a lot of easy money that way.

      Hope this helps, can only advise you to go your own way when it comes to art and music!

    • Gosceewual

      thanks 4 the tip lol,

      i jus been so hooked on lyrical 90s kinda rap it jus seems like the lyrics meant a lot more back then

      but maybe they dont really matter that much ;lol

    • Anonymous

      Honestly most people nowadays listen to songs for the sake of the beat/flow, so I think that's more important.

    Just another stupid girl who supports a black man rapping about his degrading women and pimping them out. You are no different the those women married to isis muslims who bring home a child to rape. You would support him even if it was so very wrong. Rappers and hip hop artists have long been the staple of the suffering of black people.
    • Anonymous

      Neither me not my boyfriend are black. It says a lot about your beliefs that you turned a post like this into a race issue.

    • ManHater

      If you wondered but they are usually black besides im glad you support a man who supports misogyny and sexism through his songs. by the way rappers are not musicians.

    • HiveBee

      Why do you think women like rappers so much?

      They are not degrading women. They see women as who they really are, and accept them.

      Men are sluts and hoes. I dont think any sane person would deny that. Most men want to fuck.

      Well guess what? Women are exactly the same as us. Women are sluts and hoes and whores and sick and twisted and crazy and all that.

      And yet, these rap artists love women.

      I suppose it could be called unconditional love. And women like that not only are these rappers honest, accepting of womens nature, but also play into a womans less than "moral" sexual fantasies.

      Most guys "take the red pill" and are ENRAGED to find out how women REALLY are.

      But in hood culture, in rap music, what women are was always known.

      They are not perfect little angels.

      That's why women love rap and black men. Because hood culture is real about women. Many black men are successful with women because of that as well.

      We all think it's the BBC huge penis. It really isn't. It's about a group of men who accept women as they truly are unconditionally.

    Congratulations on dating someone who supports you and also someone you support! I know you don't like rap so I will keep it simple with one of my all time favorite punch lines by The Last Emperor: "once love is released it can bring inner peace."
  • CallmeTheKnight
    I can see your point and I see that you're coming from a place of inspiration and positivity. However, most young women aren't capable of inspiring themselves to accept their own faults as long as simps and OnlyFans are around. It doesn't apply to every relationship, but you highlighted some very important things that can help every relationship if both parties are mature. I wish him the best fortune on his craft and career and I also wish the both of you grand prosperity for what's to come your way.
    • Anonymous

      I guess that's true.
      I've come to understand that I don't want to put myself out there for the world to see, like some women have decided to do with OnlyFans or Porn.
      I have an ex who was a major simp - I later found out that he was submissive, into pegging and being a cash cow.
      There's nothing wrong with having kinks, but his behaviour is a huge turn off for me personally... I love it when I can share experiences with my boyfriend, but I don't want to be spoiled with expensive luxury bags or shoes. There's no use for that to me.

      I'll continue to inspire my boyfriend in my own, private way. No simps are influencing our relationship <3

      It’s funny how women love being abused by black men.

    • Gosceewual

      i agree if your mainly talking about new age rap and any rap music past 2000, but if you listen to 90s hiphop ,,, whats bad about it? it sounds very good, and lyrics are good... there is nothing bad about it, maybe u jus dont have a taste for it... the same way u wouldn't share the same taste as a grandma who likes checkered white n brown curtains... differnet people have different tastes depending on their personality and gender etc... but to dismiss a whole genre and say its all crap cos u dont like it yourself... is rather... bigheaded... listen to da germ - mic is a 3rd rail... do u still think its crap man? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUw9r3CQyHQ

    Interesting I know a couple females dating small scale rappers lol it’s not a glitz they cheat on them roads and groupies wooooh I couldn’t deal but I’m glad you’ve had a good experience

      I can imagine... I'm so blessed to have a great relationship with my boyfriend and know that he wouldn't cheat on me, simply because of his high moral standards, but it makes sense that guys who are away a lot and/or meet many beautiful women would be more likely to cheat.

      look at dmx--he died from drugs. violence and rape: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partner_violence_in_hip_hop . it promotes everything that amoral and wrong with the world. it's like giving drugs to children... some rappers won't even let their own kids listen to it. are you familiar with the controversy surrounding little Nas X?

      There's definitely controversy and dark sides to rap and hip hop, but as an art form, I think you can exercise it without dipping into the dark side.
