Dupri couldn’t name one female artist that he considered a “rapper.”

Jermaine Dupri is sounding like someone’s grandfather when he spoke with PEOPLE about the current state of female rappers.

The rapper/producer reminded everyone that Da Brat was the first solo female rap artist to go platinum and that since then women have been selling more records than men.

Although that last statement could be up for debate he couldn’t name a female artist that he considered a “rapper.”

“I don’t think they’re showing us who’s the best rapper. For me, it’s like strippers rapping…I’m getting a story about you dancing in the club—who’s gonna be the rapper?” said Dupri.
