Constant questions arise about how the misogynistic culture of hip hop influences the behavior of young adult African American women. Previous research on this topic focuses mostly on pre-adolescents and the sexual scripts that develop from misogyny in hip hop. The purpose of this study was to determine the behavior and perceptions of young black females pertaining to misogynistic lyrics, behavior, and overall culture in hip hop. The goal of the research project is to determine the relationship (if any) between certain females and misogynistic images in the hip hop culture through semi-structured interviews. The participants were six female African American freshmen from Jackson State University. The young ladies were recruited from the female freshman dorm and were interviewed one at a time about their perceptions on misogynistic images in hip hop and how the images portrayed in the media made them feel about themselves. The data collected indicated that majority of this sample admitted to mildly being influenced (behavior, clothing style, hair style) by hip hop. There was also support for the misogynistic culture of hip hop making young black women feel belittled.
