If you say this out loud, you sound like a misogynist
But if you think about it, there are none
Can you actually name a woman rapper on the same level as the Jay, Nas, BIGs?
fu*k that, extend it to the top 100+ rappers... It's all men before you can name a single woman
Sure it's a male dominated genre, but it's a mental sport to have a great pen game- it doesn't require a physical advantage
It's never made sense to me

Labels are only interested in signing them if they're selling s*x. Talent isnt the #1 priority

To really spit, you have to let your nuts hang.

They can Megan can do that, but I've never listened.

Butterfly from Digable Planets could spit.

Jamie Sommers from Wu Tang.

Patwa is okay. Even JJ Fad was decent for what they did. It's rare though.

i'd even add Remy Ma
they're OK, decent at best
you're seriously comparing those acts to the jays, bigs, nas' of the world? there's no way in your heart you actually think that's true

The way I see it.
The best rappers are the hungriest for money, not the rap game itself

If a women purely hungry to make wealth, she got other lanes to excel in, as s*xist as it sounds, in the entertaient industry.
Modelling, singing, acting are less frowned upon for women than for men, and men do it but I think the proportion is different in each media source.

Also lets mot forget the game was started by men, and at the end of the day its easier to ride a train thats already rolling and following in the footsteps of giants thn to be different (racially, gender, sonically) and a moving target


My quick 2 cents off the top. Probably all bs but felt like typing

A lot of them aren't that skilled lyrically and their subject matter is pretty limited. I feel like they aren't as hungry as the men are too.

I won't go full Sean Price mode but female rappers aren't my cup of tea. I respect them but Lauryn is the only one I can sit and thoroughly listen to on Fugees albums as well as her solo classic.

One question I always had though is where are all the female producers and engineers at?

Cause after the 90's image pays a big role.
Don't care if you can't sing, they give you the auto-tune package.

After skimming through the kat stacks interview and hearing her say it's prostitution rap. I just can't
It really does go hand in hand with the murder drug dealing raps.

I get it.

It's purely a stylistic thing though. I'm not saying Baltimore was some elite spitter, but I dug her stylistically.

Got a cousin who looks and dresses like her is probably why. But "Stand Up" was good to me. And "NBC" was a classic, but okay.

Charli Baltimore fu*kin sucked.

But I'd put MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill, Jean Grae, and Rah Digga against ANY elite male emcee.
