    'Look At Me Now: White Girl Rap' combines the vocals of a YouTube songstress and self-professed 'white girl' AliOfficially with the music video for Chris Brown's 'Look At Me Now.' The original song's use of words such as 'bitch,' 'faggot,' and 'pussy' were problematic for Ali and represented Hip Hop's inaccessibility to her. Combining these two sources reveals a lot about displays of power and masculinity in our culture and how Hip Hop is traditionally based on these things at the exclusion of female and queer people.
