Top Female Rappers

female rappersThere are many great female rappers who don’t always get the credit that they deserve. A lot of times their skills are over looked and the truth is that a lot of these female rappers are actually better than some of the male rappers today.

In this post we’ll be looking at some really good female rappers and what they bring to the table. The ratio of male to female rappers is really  unbalanced due to the fact that there are so many more male rappers. Hopefully this post will bring inspiration to some of the aspiring female artists.

Lil’ Kim

Lil’ Kim is one of the first female rappers to really make it to the top. One can argue and say Lil’ Kim is one of the top three female rappers. Her style went from hardcore to sexual and in your face but you can’t deny that she knows how to tear up the mic.

Queen Latifah

Who doesn’t know Queen Latifah, can you say “U.N.I.T.Y.”? Queen Latifah had a great impact on female rappers and women all together and it’s easy to see why. She’s truly a pioneer in female rap and rap all together for that matter.

Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott has done it all and it’s safe to say she’s one of the most successful female rappers ever. Skills wise she’s top notch and if you’ve seen any of her videos you’ll know that she gets very creative with them. All I can say is Missy is great.

Eve has been off the seen for a while but you can’t forget what she’s done as a rapper. As a rapper she portrayed good skill with a unique attitude that was enjoyed by a broad audience. Although she has changed Eve should still be considered a good female rapper.

MC Lyte

I would have to say MC Lyte is probably the greatest female rapper of all time. By keeping a respectable image she made sure that the perception on female rappers was not misguided. On the mic few possess the skills that MC Lyte has.

Nicki Minaj

You guys know Nicki right?  This breakthrough rapper has reached a level of popularity not attained by other female rappers. Her unique style might have something to do with that and it’s safe to say Nicki Minaj has not yet reached her full potential.

Rah Digga

Rah Digga is another great rapper with superior mic skills. She started out slow but eventually solidified her place once she released her album. She is able to blend her lyrics in a way that makes people just want to play her music.

Lauryn Hill

When you think of a female rapper Lauryn Hill always comes to mind. A very successful member of the Fugees who went on and did great as a solo artist. Hill is truly a great rapper and she followed in Lyte’s footsteps by keeping an image of respect.

Foxy Brown

female rappers

You can’t forget about Foxy Brown with her unique lyrics and lewd style.  She has played her part in hip hop and has worked with other great artists such as LL Cool J and Jay Z. Her albums didn’t do so bad either.

Jean Grae

female rappers

Jean is definitely in the top 5 best female rappers and I’m sure all of you know why. As a rapper, Jean Grae stands out from the rest and that is due to her superior rhyming and flow. She has three great releases and is still going strong.
