Justina Valentine seems to be a real fan of Eminem as she goes on re-touching some popular tracks by Em into some empowering tracks. In 2017, Justina released a mixtape titled ‘Feminem’ (notice the pun on words), and in this album, she re-does some of the classic tracks by Rap God. She recently released a music video for “Just Don’t Give a Fck” track from this album and its all about empowerment.
The 31-year-old, New Jersey-based rapper is already on to her fourth studio album, the last being ‘Feminem’ in 2017. Donned with a fiery red hair and an amazing vocal skill, she takes a liking to rap music as she demonstrates in this album.
She is most known for her track “Candy Land” with Fetty Wap, which is not at all about feminism. From her ‘Feminem’ album she has spun off Eminem songs such as “Love the Way You Lie,” “Renegade,” “The Real Justina,” The Way I Am” and “Just Don’t Give a Fck.”
Releasing this album, Justina confirmed that she is a die-hard fan of Eminem in an Instagram post below;
I did this project because Eminem is one of the GOATs, one of my biggest inspirations and the best lyricist of all time. To all the Em fans just know… I’m as big a fan as you! I woke up one morning and the Holy Spirit hit me w this idea. I knew my supporters would enjoy it and I really enjoyed revisiting some of my fave Em joints. If you love me you gonna love this project. If you don’t fuck with me or this project…..Good cause I still don’t give a fuck.

In “Just Don’t Give a Fck,” Justina attacks all the stereotypes of the society that tries to bind the freedom of women. “Getting tattoos is not for girls,” “girls shouldn’t rap,” and how girls are expected to look like perfect murals chiseled out of marble. Justina Valentine says she is flawed and what others think about her flaws are not her concern. Is her nose crooked? and her butt is flat? Well, she is not going to give a fck about your opinion on it.
She also raps that no matter what you do to please someone, there will always be another who will be offended by it or another. There is no limit to pleasing everybody around you. So, might as well do what feels the best for you.
Justina goes hard at her haters too. Somebody apparently got into her social media profiles and left truly harsh comments. But Justina says words are not going to hurt her, as she has gone through many worst experiences in her life.
The message of “Just Don’t Give a Fck” is in the title of the song itself. Eminem said it in 1999 and Justina in 2017. Just live your life the way you want to, without hurting anyone else in the process, and you will lead a happy life.
Although the track takes a comedic spin, there is a good underlying message embedded in the song. What do you think about the song? Let us know in the comments below.
