Hip-hop is a tough game in which only the best survive. From the early days of the male-dominated genre, female rappers have proved that women, though few in numbers, are fearless, strong especially when unified and are not only capable of standing as tall as the next man but also of outshining them.
Many female rhymers, from Queen Latifah to Nicki Minaj, have destroyed the proverbial glass ceiling to become legends in their own right.
Lil’ Kim is back with a new single. Listen to “Took Us a Break” below. “I’m warming you up,” she wrote on Twitter, implying that more music is coming soon. The new song follows Kim’s 2016 mixtape Lil’ Kim Season. Check out the music video below. Her last proper album was 2005’s The Naked Truth. Kim appeared at this year’s “VH1 Hip-Hop Honors,” performing a tribute to the late Prodigy of Mobb Deep. She was also one of the artists who showered praise on Cardi B when “Bodak Yellow” went No. 1.
Remy Ma is back with a record label. Back in 2006, the Grammy-nominated emcee released her debut album, There’s Something About Remy, via Terror Squad/SRC Records/Universal.
According toXXL, Rem signed a new contract with Columbia Records. Baller Alertreports it’s a multi-million dollar deal.
Music from the Love & Hip Hop star is expected to drop very soon. TMZ posted an article claiming the Bronx native connected with fellow New York City rapper Lil Kim for an upcoming Nicki Minaj diss track.
The “Wake Me Up” song includes Rem saying, “That crown I’m gon take that sh-t. Cause you a clown and homie don’t play that sh-t.”
Like nearly everything in life, Rap is co-ed. From the beginning, women have been among the world’s most innovative MCs. They have the ability to offer fresh perspectives to a field often dominated by men. However, rarely, in the debates surrounding the greatest MCs in Hip-Hop history do women get their just due. In fact, they are left out of the discussion so regularly it seems systematic.
