Male music videos
Transcript of Male music videos
Rap/ Hip-Hop Artists
In this video we can see that the artists Lil Wayne and Fat Joe are throwing money in the air saying "I make it rain on them hoes'. As shown in the video both artists are portrayed as big shots and wealthy men,being able to do as they please with their money. The artists use the umbrella as a symbol to the lyrics about making it rain money and being wealthy. Throughout their entire video they are throwing money, seeing money as no big deal to earn. Men in a lot of videos also come out with expensive cars also representing their money and wealth.
How are men represented in music videos?
Money and Wealth
In this video Big Sean is seen siting on a chair symbolizing a throne, while women are dancing on him and around him. He uses women as objects based on how they look, men in most videos use women as sex objects to make themselves appear dominant and powerful. The usage of women in male videos are specifically put there so that other men believe that women are weak and men are in general the more dominant sex. Men in music videos will disrespect women yet the women seem to still want more of the guys attention and men are seen as capable of getting everything they want and being womanizers.
A genre of music that contrasts with these representations of males that are made in Rap/Rnb and hip hop music is Rock music. In rock music videos, there isn’t usually a dominant male, but a group of males that are in the band together. They are mostly the the devil’s advocate and also show up strong machismo.
By Georgie Robson
In the cover song, "The Prince", Metallica openly sing:
"Angel from below . . .
I WISH TO SELL MY SOUL . . .
DEVIL TAKE MY SOUL
with diamonds you repay
I don't care for heaven
so don't you look for me to cry
AND I WILL BURN IN HELL
from the day I die."
By Music and Satanism Chapter 3
In the song "The Conjuring" by Megadeth, the REAL mission of rock is clearly heard:
"I AM THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE
A SALESMAN, if you will . . .
Come join me in my INFERNAL DEPTHS . . .
I've got your soul!"
At the end of the song — they chant "OBEY"!

Unlike the male in the rap/hip pop music, they still care about something even just some tiny little thing(they got everything like money, beauty and fame). They still trying to prove something or have something. But male in rock they are careless. Money and women are nothing to them,show up strong machismo(both money and women are rarely showed in the music video). Death and Satanism seem to be the only pursuit since they were born which makes those males and their followers even more dangerous.

How are music videos influential to men?
In Britney Spear's video Womanizer she is pretending
to be women in order to catch her boyfriend hitting on other women while he is away. Although in the end she leaves her boyfriend, the guy throughout the entire video is seen a stud getting every girls attention. This is an example of how men are seen in music videos as the hot guy that can get any woman he wants and does not care about any ones emotions but his.
In our presentation today we're going to be talking about male representation in music videos. There will be music videos that show money, wealth, and power. But even though most of the videos we see in our everyday lives there are also videos that show the contrary of that such as rock videos. You'll be able to see how between both genres males are represented. In our presentation you will see what others opinions are about male representation in music videos.
Overall in our presentation you see how rap and hip hop videos men are represented. Also how men are represented in rock videos. The difference between the two is that in rap and hip hop men are the more dominant ones, they have money, women, and anything they can ask for. As in rock videos men are represented as one, they are united and they don't show women as sex objects, they don't make it rain, and they don't show that they are more powerful than women.
Just a question for the guys to think about:
How would you feel if you were in the woman's place in the rap and hip hop videos?
Men portray dominance in their music videos and influence their viewers to do the same. Men have become limited to how they can express themselves especially in hip hop men are usually masculine, dominant figures and have control over the women. As if they need to claim a certain kind property in order to be powerful. Male hip hop artist like Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Tyga convey dominance in their videos .In the article "The Emergence of Hip-Hop", it states that " In lyrics and in music videos, women are often envisioned as either obstacles for male prerogatives (bitches) or receptacles for male desire (hoes). " Hip hop artist use women to enhance their image and make them appear in control or more valuable.

In the music video The Unforgiven by Metallica, the band concentrates on telling a story rather than having women dancing or the artists throwing money in air. Most rock music videos are dark and mysterious, with more of a story line to behind life and the dark side. Rock music videos are not about women and money, they are all based on life, death, and darkness. Although rock artists have money and fame they do not make their videos based on the idea of wealth. Rather on an idea that shows viewers life and death through the eyes of the artist.
Hip hop artist are well known for showing their wealth through lyrics and music videos, in the song "Niggas in Paris" by Kanye West, "What's 50 grand to a mothafucka like me, can you please remind me" they make so much money they don't value the amount they make because they gain so much and enjoy showing thousands of viewers how fortunate they are. Male hip hop artist glorify their wealth. In the article The language of Rap and Wealth, Janet Testerman states, "Niggas in Paris represents a new form of escape hip hop and rap that combinesa celebration of wealth, good fortune and humor with a cognizance of the poverty and desperation the rappers almost magically avoided."
