Furthermore, women had been portrayed by Lil Wayne as solely objects for men’sdesire, especially in the lyrics “She wake up, eat this dick, call thatbreakfast in bed”. Additionally, the lyrics “And all she eat is dick. She’s ona strict diet” and Lil Wayne’s treatment and thoughts of women and their purposein his mind shown in the lyrics” Baby just make me cum, Then don’t make nosound” . In the music video, the imagespresented are extremely disturbing.
With images of women with leather bondagewhip, extremely tight bondage suits, and women in cages. An especially disturbing image was the threewomen in skin tight bondage suits locked up in metal cages, who seemed to beintrigued by Lil Wayne.

This music video was launched on February 14, 2013. This videowas released on Valentine’s Day.
With the launch of this music video, itactually promotes free sex on that day and so on because what Lil Wayne triedto convey was that way. This music video gets the number of views mentioned for4 years and 10 months. Love Me lyrics as a whole describethat women are just as sex objects or it can be said that this woman is just alust. The song also often links women with alcohol, drugs and hedonisticattitudes (extreme excitement that is the goal of a person’s life).
The songalso often uses abusive words to symbolize a woman. The first part of the song (Pre-Hook: Future) statesthat the man often uses drugs ie kush and wine for his satisfaction and hestates that he is very good using both. Next he stated that he could call thebitch he wanted. From this lyric verse we can assume that the man ignores andrespects the rights of women as a human being. The man was inhuman and moreconcerned with his lust.
The third and fourth verses of the lyrics state thatwithout a bitch life he is meaningless and he feels there is less enough in hislife. The lyrics for the second part(Hook: Drake) as a wholeindicate that as long as the bitch likes himself, as long as he can do anythingagainst the woman. Anything here means by doing something sexual to women. Hecan do that without any hindrance from anyone. The lyrics for the third part (LilWayne) actually explain that the maninvites the woman to have sexual intercourse without any silence, and she hassexually violently and causes the audience and the listener to feel violent andviolent sexual intercourse relieves women and at the same time shows a pleasurefor the woman .
While it does not reflect the real reality. In this case it alsostates that the woman does not want money but the woman wants time with a manto do the relationship. There are certain part of the lyricrepeat. As a whole, the lyrics explain that women are often treated as sexobjects and often used to satisfy men’s greed. In reality, men should need torespect the rights and dignity of women so that they are not oppressed andtreated like this. Women should also not allow themselves to be treated in sucha way.
