Women and their role in hip-hop are two things that most listeners sleep on. Today we have a list of female artists who have really made waves in the game. We decided to break the list into two separate parts, first: The Legends, and second: The New Generation. We restricted the list to only hip-hop, RnB, and rap artists. The most common reason most guys don’t listen to female artists is that they don’t want to listen to or sing about other guys in a sexual manner. Luckily, nowadays there are many female artists that make amazing music that’s enjoyable for everyone to listen to, hence their growth in numbers. If we get real philosophical though, why don’t those standards go both ways? Is hip-hop culture sexist? That’s a conversation for another day, but today’s is about the women who have broken the rules and stereotypes and are at the forefront of music culture. This ones for my upcoming female artists, THE BRIDGE ain’t sleeping on you, give us some heat.
