When the conversation of Female rappers comes up, we often refer to veterans like Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliot, MC Lyte, and Salt N Pepp. If it weren’t for their strong female presence, the game’s landscape would more than likelyamount to a machismo-fueled boys club.
Though the contributions of hip-hop’s fore-mothers will forever be remembered, there remains a new generation of female emcees collectively ushering in a new standard of music. Contrary to popular belief, there are more female rappers to support than current heavyweights Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. Whether you’re into the Trap wave, or prefer new age Punk infused rap, or simply prefer lyricists with the occasional sultry tendencies, this list has a lady for each and every archetype you can think of. Even some you may not be hip on.
