Derrick May described women as “the conduit of life” last year – so why did he tell a 15 year old girl in 1989 that he’d kick her arse for five dollars?

A quick note before I begin – I thought it was time for a little change to the graphic that accompanies Derrick May posts on this blog. There’s just something about this one that really speaks to me. I just can’t put my finger on it…

Anyway, you might remember that May’s lawyer (who he hasn’t paid yet, by the way) released an utterly laughable statement claiming that women were the “conduits of life” and that anyone questioning his actions was a racist.

Yeah, that one. May wasn’t always the respectable soul towards women that he likes to portray himself as. Ask Matthew Cogger, who May signed to Transmat in the late 1980s. He sadly died in 2014 from cancer, but not before leaving us a whopper of a story.

According to an account given here before his death, Cogger and May were walking over to a shop when they came across a girl, whom Cogger believed to be around 15 years old. She told them that she would perform a sexual act for the sum of five dollars.

May’s response? He told the lady that he should be paid five dollars to kick her in the arse before calling her a bitch.

Real classy…
