Females Rappers Are Here To Stay
Music genres are solidified in infamy. Rock and roll will forever move and shake us, alternative music will quietly hum in the background as we cry ourselves to sleep, and rap music will constantly be there to hype us up. As humans, we look to music for comfort. We identify with the artists, their message, and their often hard-hitting lyrics. However, as our world progresses, more artists are finding their ways into genres that originally did not accept them. Enter female rappers.
Female rappers have been killing the game for decades, but just recently have they been the center of multiple controversies and scandals, all surrounding what they can and can’t sing about. While male rappers objectify women and rap about their bodies, the media isn’t exactly letting female rappers take ownership of their own bodies.
Female rappers aren’t going anywhere, but if you’re new to their vibe and looking to get a start on listening to them, here are some fresh female rappers to add to your playlists.
