Let’s face it; the hip-hop world often look at women as sex objects. Tights clothes, oily bodies, and ass shaking is the norm when it comes to music videos. However, behind the scenes, things can get a lot freakier when it comes to video vixens and men in the hip-hop industry. Some women have lost opportunities by not engaging in sexual acts with an artist, director, or someone in the rapper’s entourage.
In 2005, VH1 released a documentary titled Hip-Hop Videos…Sexploitation On The Set which highlights what happens behind the scenes of hip-hop videos. VH1 conducts interviews with working video models, groupies, and the infamous Karrine “Superhead” Steffans who explains her former video girl lifestyle with famous men and her book, Confessions of a Video Vixen. Viewers also get a chance to see behind the scenes of an independent uncut music video for a rapper named Big Delph in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
