The Ultimate Female Emcee List


I am sorry.

I am sorry for not expanding on a previous post that I made about female emcees.

I went back and read comments from the post and noticed something.

I forgot to include a lot of uber talented female emcees.

Rap is a male dominated music genre. Females are misrepresented because of poor branding.

Sex appeal seems to be more important than rhyming skill.

Why I Created This List?

A blog post from The Smithsonian Magazine really caught my attention. The blog post stated that the number of female rappers signed to major labels dropped from 40 to 3.

Yes 3! 3 female rappers! It makes you wonder where did all the female rappers go.

Another blog post that I read talked about how female hip-hop committed suicide.

Check out this interesting viewpoint from Chakara:

Female hip hop committed suicide because labels agreed to unleash females with one common thing on their mind; selling sex. We sold out. We as a female race in hip hop sold out, at something that to do nothing but produce sexual desire for the male fanbase of hip hop. Why put all this time in effort into my actual lyrics when I can get a record deal from having a fat ass, freaky lyrics, and a pretty face? This became the common thought across the board in upcoming female artists.

Do you agree with this?

I know I do. The aforementioned blog posts provided me with the ammunition to compile a female emcee list.

I wanted to prove that female emcees are alive and kicking.

I wanted to prove that female emcees can hold their own with their male counterparts.

I grew up listening to Eve, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Amil, Missy Elliot, Charli Baltimore and other emcees that happened to be female.

I took the time to study the pioneers of hip-hop. To my surprise I was exposed to the talents of MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Roxanne Shante, Heather B, Monie Love and countless others.

I fell in love with Lauryn Hill. Her performance on The Score sold me. I fell in love with Bahamadia. I fell in love with Apani B Fly. I fell in love with Elsie from New Breed.

I fell in love with Lady of Rage and her gangster steez. I fell in love with Mia X during my No Limit phase haha.

I fell in love with Left Eye (Rest in Peace Queen). I fell in love with Missy Elliot.

Female emcees rock! (Tweet This)

The list goes on and on. I fell in love with their skill not their sexuality! I fell in love with their personality as well.

Hip-Hop is Hip-Hop at the end of the day.

The Resources I Used for This List

I used multiple resources to compile this list.

The resources cut down my research time immensely.

I went through all the links that the were provided and updated them with current links (if I could find them).

I also reached out to my I Live Hip Hop Facebook fam and they provided a lot of names as well. Shout out to The Fembassy and Hip Hop Sisters for what you do.

Below you will find an alphabetized directory (or list) of female emcees. This list contains artists that you may know and some that you do not know. This list consists of international and domestic emcees. This list consists of veteran and new emcees.

Please share this post. Share it with the artists on this list. Share it with artists that should be on this list. The goal is to keep adding to this list. This list proves that Females can spit and deserve more attention.

Who Would You Add To This List?

Putting together a post like this is very time consuming. I am human, I make mistakes.

Talented emcees will be left off this list. Not because of skill but because of obscurity. I am not knowledgeable of every female emcee in the world.

I want to compile the greatest female emcee list ever. But I can't do it without your help.

My mind is not as sharp as it once was and my music discovery time has been reduced significantly.

Raising and chasing a 16 month old has replaced the little music discovery time that I had haha.

This is where you come in. Your memory is sharp, your recollection of the past is on point. You listen to music on a consistent basis.

Educate me. Point out glaring omissions. Inform me about the up and coming talent in your region.

Please answer these two questions for me:

Who would you add to this list?
Who is your favorite female emcee of all-time?
