Over the past couple of years we’ve seen a rise in dope female rappers. And while there has never been a time in hip hop where dope women didn’t rock the mic, it’s no secret that female rappers are often left out of the conversation of who’s the nicest in hip hop.
In fact, if the female rappers on this list ain’t on your dopest rappers list…it’s trash, because the female rappers on this list could easily take on ANY of the male rappers in your top 10… and annihilate them!
So, without further ado, here are 3 female rappers who should be in your top 10 (in no particular order).
Hailing from Snow Hill, North Carolina, Rapsody is no stranger to the mic. But due to the politics of a male driven genre, it seems it’s been only in the last couple of years that she’s received the shine she deserves. But, if you’re still not hip, check out this freestyle from late 2019 and then tell me she she ain’t doper than at least 5 of your faves.
New Orleans, born and bred, like many female emcees, Na’Tee has BEEN rocking mics. But, like many female emcees with skills, fans would rather compare her to the next female rapper than include her in conversations with the greats—regardless of their gender.
Having been courted by the likes of Timbaland and Missy for a record deal in the past, Na’Tee’s business savvy and creative ingenuity has allowed her to remain successful without a record deal. In fact, this legendary emcee has already demonstrated she’s nicer than some of your faves. Don’t believe me? Check out this freestyle she did on Sway in the Morning a few years back where she definitely outshined one particular rapper who often makes it on those “greatest of all time” lists y’all be throwing together.
This DC native has definitely earned her reputation as one of the dopest to touch a mic… period.
Incorporating dope wordplay akin to hip hop greats such as Royce Da 5’9 combined with a mastery of flow and delivery, and intelligent lyrical content that straddles the metaphysical, Blackness, and the divine feminine, Sa Roc is definitely a breath of fresh air in hip hop, and I can guarantee you she’s better than at least 5 of ya faves… easy.
