It’s long been known that Hip-Hop is a man’s game. Even though that’s proven to be true, plenty of females have been able to crack the code, and make a name for them selves in this testosterone-filled industry. You don’t have to be a Hip-Hop historian to know about the women from the golden era, or even be a fan of the current queen, Nicki Minaj; but just know that the opposite sex has been carving their names in the books, and that it’s never going to stop. Now some of these names you might be familiar with, and others you may not, but make no mistake; these four ladies are quickly making their way up the ranks. So you can either get on board, or get the heck out of their way.
Rapsody: Hailing from North Carolina, this protégé of 9th Wonder made her way up the mixtape circuit with projects like Thank Her N.O.W., Return Of The B-Girl, and For Everything. From there, she made the jump to releasing her debut album, The Idea Of Beautiful with names like Ab-Soul, Mac Miller, and Childish Gambino all playing the roles of co-star. Under the watchful eye of 9th Wonder, you can bet that she’ll be around for a long time to come. Be on the lookout for her next project, She Got Game hosted by DJ Drama coming August 20th.
Nitty Scott, MC: Don’t let the pretty face on this Brooklyn representative fool you, because the delivery that comes out of her mouth is quite ugly, (in a good way of course). Originally from Florida, this transplant released her project, The Boombox Diaries vol. 1 last year, and names like Action Bronson, Kendrick Lamar, and Soul Khan all came out to lend a hand. An appearance on BET’s Backroom also boasted her presence as a force to be reckoned with, while she continues to prove that being attractive and lyrically talented can be mentioned in the same breath.
Snow Tha Product: After the success of songs like 'Holy Sh!t' and 'Drunk Love' made a tremendous impact on the internet, it wasn’t too soon after that Atlantic Records came calling for this Mexican-American lyricist who’s originally from California, but now makes Texas her home. Since the release of projects such as Unorthodox 0.5, and Good Nights & Bad Mornings, she’s racked up a ton of guest spots appearing alongside the likes of Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, and more. Next up on her plate is Good Nights & Bad Mornings: The Hangover followed by her Atlantic Records release.
