Ludacris Rap Map of US Area Codes
The feminist Stefanie Gray made some questionable remarks in her article. First off, the only correct assumption that might have been made is that Ludacris has a East Coast bias, which might be because he hails from Atlanta. Secondly, Ludacris having "hos" in the entire state of Maryland is not that big of deal considering the range he has all across the United States. Also, in the area code 808, it has been noted that not only Midway and Wake islands lie there, which are off limit to the public. So it is possible that Ludacris ventured into this area
Ludacris song, in my opinion, is more commical than it would be offending. Because Stefanie Gray calls her "mapping" of Ludacris hoe area hilarious. I think that assertion is right on point! A lot of music today can be considered offensive,not just including rap. In conclusion, the map of his his could be either seen as funny or being a put down on women. But from his song, it is an acurate showing based on what Ludacris said in his song. Even though Ms. Gray doesn't seem to much to care for the song, she doesn't put up too much of an argument for everyone to dislike it.
Well the comment of Ludacris having hoes in Maryland as not that big of a deal because the size of Maryland. If, for example, Ludacris was in the state of Florida then it would not even be mentioned as a big deal. Maryland being minute in size compared to other states was the only reason it was mentioned.
As far as the comment being "not that big of a deal" I was simply stating that it seems like Stefanie Gray was trying to portray the fact that he had all of these "hoes" in one state. If it had been the state of Texas, that would have been one story. But one of the smaller New England States, Maryland, is not that impressive.
I was more thinking that Stefanie Gray notion of Ludacris going into the area code 808 is not just a military space. It is also a public area. So I think that she may have such been mis-informed.

I'n not sure about the rationle in your observation that: "Ludacris having "hos" in the entire state of Maryland is not that big of deal considering the range he has all across the United States."
Please say more about how this is not that "big of a deal" in light Ludacris's continental US range.
What do you think Gray is implying when pointing out that only military personnel and scientists are allowed on Midway and Wake Islands? Ludacris's connections to scientists and the military is what --a ludicrous notion?
This ho geographical framework is not a scientific or militar approach? Ludacris's only science is the science of hos? His only military engagement is hos as collateral damage?
What makes the song more comical than offensive?
