Yes, it is. There are soooo many song lyrics (especially rap) that are discriminatory towards women (not so much men in this case). 'Blurred lines' and 'Anaconda' both indicate that women's only real purpose is to be sexual objects and don't represent them as actual people.

Another thing is music videos. You often see women dressed unappropriately in music videos (such as shown in 'Wrecking Ball') or draped around men (rap music again). These videos are sometimes watched by young and influential people and can promote boys to treat girls or women disrespectfully and can, in some cases, even promote rape.
