*It was only a matter of time before the #MeToo movement fully expanded into hip-hop, with some of the culture’s finest under fire.

LL Cool J, MC Lyte and Bell Biv Devoe (BBD) are the targets of #MeToo supporters. Among the advocates is one who is taking the entertainers to task for spreading what she calls “grooming culture” in music.

The questionable activity relates to claims that BBD, Lyte and Cool J spread a grooming and abuse culture in hip-hop that encouraged predators via their music, reports MediaTakeOut.

The #MeToo supporter highlighted specific tunes from the trio in her claim, particularly Cool J’s “Big Ole Butt, Lyte’s “2 Young 4 What” and BBD’s “Do Me.”

Released on July 7, 1980, “Big Ole Butt” is the third single from Cool J’s third album, “Walking With a Panther.” The rapper was 21 at the time when the song came out. In her post, the #MeToo advocate cited the second verse of “Big Ole Butt,” which found Cool J coming to a high school and meeting a teenage girl.

Lyrics from the verse read as follows:

I went to the high school about three o’clock
To try to catch a cutie ridin’ my jock
My homeboy’s jeep, the system blastin’
Cold forty dogs, smilin’ and laughin’
Girls all over, the kind I adore
I felt like a kid in a candy store
That’s when I seen her
Her name was Brenda
She had the kind of booty that I’d always remember
I said to my man, “Stop the jeep”
She’s only seventeen but, yo, don’t sleep
I kicked the bass like an NFL punter
And scoped the booty like a big game hunter
I said to the girl, “Yo, you look tired
Let’s go get some rest, relax by the fire”
I put the big booty on a bearskin rug
She gave me a kiss, I have her a hug
I said to the girl, “them young boys ain’t nothin’
You want to get freaky, let me kiss your belly button”
I circled it and teased it and made her squeal
Grabbed a pack of bullets and pulled out the steel
When I was through, I wiped the sweat from my eyes
When to the kitchen and got some sweet potato pies
Tina busted in my house while I was eatin’
You know what I said
Too bad you caught me cheatin’,

The #MeToo supporter’s claims arrived after Bad Boy Records founder Sean “Diddy” Combs was hit with four separate sexual assault lawsuits last month. As a result, the rap mogul has faced a severe backlash, resulting in him stepping aside as chairman at Revolt and multiple companies ending their business relationship with him as well as scrapped plans for “Diddy+7,” a Hulu reality show with Combs and his family.

For “2 Young 4 What” Media Takeout noted the advocate’s intent to prove how the toxic culture was spread by female artists as well as their male counterparts. The song, featured on Lyte’s 1991 album “Act Like You Know,” finds the then 21-year-old rapstress voicing her preference for “young boys” who are “about seventeen.”

Lyrics cited by the #MeToo advocate are taken from the second verse of “Act Like You Know.” Check em out:

It may sound nasty and it may sound mean
But I’m into little boys that are about seventeen
I don’t know why, but they put up a fight
And hot damn that excites the MC Lyte

’Cause yo I love a young buck, that give a firm {fuck}
But once in a while, they become lovestruck
But that’s okay though, cause I can handle them
I love young boys on the brink, of being young menI mold em, shape em, make em then I break em in
They get the job done, I make em get the job done
Well, swell, make em kiss and tell
All of their friends around the neighborhood

The most well-known of the tracks the advocate mentioned is “Do Me,” the second single from BBD’s debut album “Poison.” It peaked at number three on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart. Number four on the Hot Black Singles chart, number six on the Hot Dance Club singles chart and number 11 on the Billboard Year-End chart for 1990.

The advocate highlights BBD member Ronnie Devoe’s part of “Do Me,” which alludes to an encounter with an “underage” girl. Like Cool J and Lyte, she highlights the age of the group members when the song was released (Devoe, 23, Ricky Bell, 23, and Michael Bivens, 22)

Lyrics from Devoe’s rap:

Backstage, underage, adolescent
How ya doin,’ fine, she replied
I sighed, I like to do the wild thing
Action took place
Kinda wet, don’t forget
The J, the I, the M, the M, the Y, why’all
I need a body bag

So, what do you think? Are “Do Me,” “2 Young 4 What” and “Big Ole Butt” examples of a longstanding grooming culture in hip hop via BBD, Lyte and Cool J? Or is the advocate wrong in her assessment and the tunes are nothing more than regular tracks with a danceable beat.
