Hot Property - SEXIST?
First time I listened to Hot Property I loved the music, but also noticed the lyrics. "She's hot property" "my baby's hot property" "I got myself a little piece of hot property"
Am I missing something or is this terribly sexist?
I can't imagine Jay being that sexist. Sometimes his lyrics could trigger social justice warriors (she's a fast persuader Twisted Evil ) but I always thought it was funny or justified.
Now I like Hot Property, but the sexist side of it leaves a bitter aftertaste.
Is there another meaning of the song, or is it a british slang or some sort of interpretation that I'm missing?

And since I do not speak russian, I imagined the russian woman saying "I'm not property! Slavery was a terrible thing! And you are married, you shouldn't talk like this! I am a strong independant woman!" Razz

I *think* he is talking about dangerous women. In the interview he talks about russian female squads. Whatever that is.

So you think he's not talking about "his girl"?
But if she's dangerous, why is she property? Does she belong to someone else, as a russian squad member?

I read "Hot Property" like something valuable. Also, and this is just me, it reminds me of bombs, millitary equipment, that sort of thing. You know "fragile", "dangerous property". I don't think it is *literal* property.

"Hot property" is a possessive term, not a sexist one.

You're over thinking it.


The Russian woman. The term "Hot Property." He's simply placing a characterization on how passionately he loves his woman and that people should not underestimate that or her.


It would be sexist if it was something degrading like "oh yeah, my baby gives great blowjobs!"

Like, seriously. I'd slap a dude over that.

I'm not a native English speaker but to me view "Hot Property" is something dangerous, you can see on the lyrics as he says that is something to be careful about.

To me "property" is just another word for "something", just to define that is a thing, not in the possessive sense of it.
