The Story Behind The Song
It seems, Hip-hop is thriving on double standards. It glorifies promiscuity in men whilst demeaning women who live the same lifestyle. “So young” is a refreshing new song that portrays a new perspective whilst seeking to redeem the genre by apologizing on behalf of men. It brings to light the pain women are put through by men on a quest for trophies.
