Where Are The Female Rappers?

Salt n' Pepa Eve: The Last Female Rapper. Was I dream-ing? Nope. That’s what the promotional flier said. How could that be? How could rap music, an art form that isn’t even 40 years old yet, end up with only one female MC left? Well to be honest- the producers of these fliers were taking great liberties by calling Eve the last female rapper. She isn’t so much the last as she is the only one that hasn’t released an album lately that flopped. Eve has been MIA from the rap scene for a while now, but if my memory serves me correctly- her last album didn’t exactly set the world on fire. Still, the idea that Eve was the last female MC left got me to wondering where exactly did all the female rappers go?

Just as En Vogue spawned Jade who spawned Brown Stone, you would have thought female rappers like Salt n’ Pepa, MC Lyte and Queen Latifah would have spawned female MCs in their likeness as well. And no, Lil Kim, Trina and Foxy Brown are not spin offs of any of the ladies mentioned above. Instead, I think Kim, Foxy, Trina and the like are actually spawns of male rappers like Snoop Dog and the late Notorious BIG. ((Notice how female rappers are now doing jail time like their male counterparts.))

In my opinion, once the sexist and misogynistic lyrics of gangsta rap took over, there was no room left for the intelligent, beautiful and yes sexy female MC. Rap music had done such an incredible job of reducing women to T&A, that the next generation of female rappers used- or attempted to use their T&A to get ahead. What success a few of them had was short lived and now the only place you can find women in rap is on the stripper pole in some male rapper’s video.

And for those of you who think women like Remy Ma will bring female MCs back-think again. Remy Ma is the opposite of Trina, Kim and Foxy but she too was spawned by the same sick lyrics. Rather than use her T&A ((And who wants to see hers anyway)) Remy has tried to emulate the male MCs by staying up in drama and playing up her violent and criminal past. But she too learned the hard way that rap has no room left for women regardless of what selling tactic they try and use.

So how does a female make it in the world of rap today? I don’t know. But I suspect Gloria Valez, Melyssa Ford, and Esther Baxter may be able to help you with that. After all, when you think of rap music, these are now the women who come to mind.

  1. For sure Eve was probably one of ther last commerically warped MC’s we have had in a long time. I mean she reminded me of the female rappers of old – the story tellers, the sexy, intelligent, authentic sisters that had a struggle to tell about. I mean when Eve first busrt on the scene with the Ruff Ryders she was that hap and she could easily be that again – even as she has been Hollywoodified by the industry she still has what it takes. Besides Eve – LBoogie was one of my favorites and I can’t really speak on LBoog b/c I will get all sentimental and ish…lol

    But I have NEVER been a fan of Trina, Foxy, Khia, Jackie-O, Remy Ma – they are like men dressed up in girls clothes. Anytime you brag about making a sprite can disappear in your mouth, or your neck, your back, your p**** and your crack – there is no need to even think you can take that place of a Roxanne Shante, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah or LBoogie – it ain’t happening!

  2. KSH, do you think Lauren Hill could make it in today’s rap enviorment?

  3. Is it just female rap artists in the USA that have ‘disappeared’ off the map?

    What about Ms. Dynamite? She’s UK, I think.

    I liked Eve when she first came out. “Love is Blind” was my jam. I liked how she rapped about things that were more than, “look at my ta-ta’s, see how I can put it on ya”. 😆 I agree that Eve could come back…she’s just glam, having grown outta that pit-bull crap in a skirt that she was all about. Other than her, I agree, who else is there? (over here)

  4. Without a doubt Salt n’ Pepa, MC Lyte and Queen Latifa were pioneers in the burgeoning world of rap during the 1980s. It is sad that the originality and knowledge these ladies seamlessly weaved into their music was dropped from the voice of female rappers in the 90s. From ‘Ladies First’ to ‘Paper Thin’ to ‘Let’s Talk About Sex,’ I could sing along without lowering my head in shock or shame.

    I don’t know today’s rappers (until this post I have never heard of Remy Ma or Trina), but I can speak to the Lil Kim ilk since they were the ones who dropped the MC baton in the 90s. When I listened to raps like “Queen B-tch” or “Tramp,” I could not relate to the lyrics or the rappers – Lil Kim and Foxy Brown. They made it hard for fans to support female MCs at all.

    Rap doesn’t appeal to me like it did when I was a kid or teen. But if Eve is the last female MC, I say women in rap music are going out on a high note. She may be commercialized due to Hollywood, but I’m not shamed by her music, videos or stage performances.

  5. Pretty Parker: :iagree: I will take Eve over any of these other women anyday!

    Dana:

    If LBoogie came back with some freshness I could see her being that niche that everyone is looking for. I mean I can’t even listen to the radio with my child. It’s ridiculous. I think LBoogie has that somethign special – she could sing and she was a beast on the mic. If she did it would not be hard to seperate her from the Lil Kim’s and the Remy Ma’s that’s for sure

  6. i definitely luv the queen latifah’s, and the lytes, but you all cannot deny LIL’ KIM’S staying power, and she’s human like all of us, dont count her out the game so soon, she opened a new chapter for females back in the 90’s like it or not, she made it raunchy, but fun at the same time, while all the males were callin females hoes/bitches way before kim/foxy came along, kim turned the tables, and gave females that voice, the reverse lyrical smackdown that the males gave the lady’s i will always luv her, and defintely checking for her nexxt album!!! FEAMLE RAP IS WATERED DOWN BECAUSE ALL THESE FEMALES BIT, AND DUPLICATE KIMS FORMULA WITH THEIR OWN TOUCH, BUT THEY ALL ARE VARIATIONS OF KIM, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW..(REAL TALK)

  7. :hater: while you all are dissing kim, she set the trend for these women including EVE, every mainstream female mc that came out after 95′ was patterned after kim by their label, and you all know what it is, so give CREDIT TO THE QUEEN BEE, she was just trying to find her way in a male dominated industry that never had any real respect for woman, even lauryn hills miseducation was’nt enough 2 turn the tables, the game needed a female like kim 2 even the odds, talk ass dirty as them dudes, i know alotta women won’t agree with me, and thats fine, but kim/foxy empowered a whole generation of woman, not only 2 be a down chick, but to let the guys know check it out i like to be pleased, and teased as well, while using the guy as our toy!! kim turned the tables, and you can’t deny it, at the end of the day each individual woman gets the respect that she individually demands….oh and lets not count out missy either!!

  8. Mainstream success of gangsta rap and mysoginistic messages killed the female EMCEE. The only few female rappers left define men’s fantasy and rap lyrics written by males. So they’re puppets and have nothing serious to bring to the game.

    And truth be told, when you see that the only few females who are given a chance have got to fit the stripper definition, unless they are the female version of COMMON I’d rather not see none. I don’t wanna hear no “I was gettin some h**d” Shawnna style. They’re brainless and objectified. We have more than enough video h*es to be invaded with highly paid rapping video h*es.

  9. :stop: well everybodys entitled 2 their preference chante, doesnt mean they r puppets, its entertainment, and what makes it good 4 the guys 2 come-up, and not the females?? use what u got 2 get what u want, its a hustle boo, everybody dont have the same background, who r u 2 judge anyone?? thats whats wrong with society wanting 2 blame entertainment 4 bad parenting, a role model should come from the family!! what exactly is the stripper definition??? when u got 14yr old looking like skanks, and u can’t blame females rappers 4 that! get a real clue honey

  10. I’m not saying it’s okay for male rappers to do it, but women can be objectified way more easily than men. This industry is WORSE for women. But both things are sad if you ask me, I kinda feel for a lot of them. And yes they’re puppets, I probably know more about how this industry works than you, because I’m related to someone who works in the industry, needless to say I’ve heard stories from some people’s own mouths, and I can GARANTEE you that 80% of these entertainers are puppets. Who am I to judge anyone? Who are you to judge my opinion and tell me what it should be then? Opinions are like butt holes, everyone has one.

    Today’s rap music is pathetic and everyone is coming with the same formula, I’m not judging or hating, I’m just stating. It’s generic because labels are dressing those puppets and using them to generate money. It hasn’t been about art since over 10 years ago. Queen Bee, she’s a good person I can confirm it, but I don’t like her as an entertainer, you do? Good. I don’t. Period. And she was a puppet like almost all artists (especially women) in the industry, excuse me women don’t have no power in the industry, 80% of it is ran by men, labels are owned and ran by men, THEY set the standards, Kim has been treated like trash by most industry folks and “friends”, got people talking in her ear, always been told what to do no matter what she tells to the camera. She doesn’t control a freaking thing, that’s the contract. She generated money, so Foxy Brown was created. Foxy tried to rebel and paid the price. None of those chicks ever controlled a freaking thing in their careers. Kim will never tell the world all that she regrets, but she does have a lot of regrets. This industry is insane and full of artists who try to get by the best way they can but are nothing but the clowns of a circus, puppets of a puppet show. It is what it is!

  11. @ real reppin hiphop

    Kimberly Jones did not in any way, shape form or fashion empower women. If anything Kim’s raunchy lyrics and suggestive attire helped create a generation of females with the morals of an alley cat.

    Teaching women to “take dat n*ggas money” after he has banged you out is not empowering. Teaching them to educate themselves and think before they lay down with strangers and makes babies they can’t afford is empowering.

    Teaching self esteem and self love in empowering. Your definition of empowering seems to be totally wrapped up in a woman’s ability to use her sexuality as a bargaining tool and believe me when I tell you, women will always come out on the losing end of that game.

    Men can’t get pregnant women can. Men don’t have babies or abortions, women do. So in the game of sex for pay or play, women have not only a lot more to lose, but when things go bad, it is the woman who is left holding the bag, or baby. :thumbsdown:

  12. :stop: :hater: ok i don’t really care who is a puppet, we all are puppets at some point in our life, any job you have worked chante you were a puppet, u had 2 put on the face of the company, you must embody everything you do in order 2 get want you want, you may not like QUEEN BEE, but she is on the path to evolution, and when will people stop tearing someone down for the choices they made in life, if kim was a common girl on the street , you wouldnt give 2cents about helping your sista, so dont preach to me about empowering, empower yourself, and those in your circle, you aint going help the world or anybody with those hateful, envious atitudes, i never said kim was a sista soulja, but she brought something 4 girls like her, everybody not gonna be the same, i dont getdown with ignorance, and hate, its plain and simple, its either u want it or u don’t, there r obstacles in life that only you can go threw, why r u focused on someone elses regrets? it’s like your happy 2 put them down, so sadd, and you think that makes you a better person, lol oh well, u like it, i love it!!! i also pray 4 ur evolution, and mine’s….wisdom goes a long way, and saying something nice rather than be negative is’nt all that hard either, rather than downing someone 4 their mistakes, ONCE AGAIN YOU R NO BETTER THAN ANYONE, BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY U HAVE NOT GROWN NOR SURPASSED UR ENVY, AND NEGATIVE WAYS!! GOOD LUCK 2 YOU ALL…………

  13. Just what the site needs, a delusional LiL Kim fan 🙄

  14. whateva hater, just what the needs, another envious loser!

  15. @ real reppin hiphop

    Slow your roll young sista, no one on this board has blamed your favorite artist, Lil Kim, as solely responsible for the lack of female emcees today. We are simply offering an opinion on this topic and there is room at the table for everyone to voice theirs.

    If what you said is true, that Lil Kim “set the trend for these women including EVE, every mainstream female mc that came out after 95′ was patterned after kim by their label” then Lil Kim did play a major role in promoting and sustaining the sexist, negative objectification of women in rap lyrics.

    Keep in mind we are talking about the image she chose to put on the market – Lil Kim, Queen B. I’m sure Kimberly Jones the woman would find referring to herself or her mother as a “ho” or “b-tch” a very difficult pill to swallow.

    The early female rappers told a story with their rhymes. They connected with their audience and held their own on the stage with men. Something was lost in the 90s because the “reverse lyrical smackdown” you speak of did little to empower women rappers, rather it seems to have led us to where we are today – commenting on a promotional flier for the last female rapper, EVE.

    And for the record, I am not envious of, hating on, putting down or seeking a positive role model from any female rapper in particular. I am only giving my opinion.

  16. :brownsista: i can definitely respect that oipinion sista, we r entitled 2 it, but what im saying is we know the problem, but whats the solution if there is 1, all im am saying is kim was a product of her environment, the problem is when u never evolve from being a negative product of ur environment thats a problem for that individual, i think she is on the right path as of today, she’s turning 2 philanthropy, in which she has always given back, when i c her i dont c a evil woman like most who thrive on the demise of others, even in her hardcore days she has given, im all about building my people, not concentrating on the negative aspects of what we came from, its definitely a struggle for women alone not just black womaen, we need more unity, and open arms!!! its easy 2 sit behind a keyboard, and type an opinion, but think r u helping the problem or siting comfortably on the sidelines pointing fingers?? kim/foxy/trina have said some obscene things, and acts in their lyrics, but comon ladys we all know women, and ecspecially women of color r very harsh, and critical of 1another!!!!

    At least I didn’t spend a year in prison being a down ass chick- that would be your idol right? :lol2:

    Fall back youngin. Shouldn’t you be somewhere using those d!ck sucking skills Kimberly Jones taught you. Maybe you can suck your way to top. Maybe you can drop it like it’s hot until you get a college degree 😆

    Kim, Trina, Foxy are all cheap trash who have done more to bring down the image of Black women than Imus ever could and dumb girls like you are the result. Please leave this site. The IQ level here drops by a point every time you post.

    Lemme use your favorite smiley :hater: :hater:

  18. How can anyone defend Lil Kim? I could defend Foxy Brown and Trina before I ever could defend Kim. Of all the female rappers Kim is the most pathetic of them all. I feel nothing fot her but pity. She could not think for herself and was weak, this is how she allowed herself to be used by Biggie and most other man in her life. This is how she eneded up in jail. Kim empower women? How ? She could not even empower herself. Her use of sex as a selling tool and her many plastic surgeries are all signs of a woman with little to no self esteem. Kim disfigured herself because she hated herself. She hated her Black self and sought to become what she thought would please others. Please do not attempt to tell those of us with life experience that Kim was a good role model for young women because we know better.Be a fan not a fanatic. Open your eyes and ears and learn to think for yourself. Hate Kim? No. Envious of Kim? Hell no. Kim has not a damn thing to be envious of. I wouldn’t trade places with her and neither would any other woman here. Please come up with something a little more original than “hater” and “envious” references because they are as tired as the excuses you make for her.

To sit back and expect us to follow behind and support the filth of someone because she is Black and a woman is like asking us to support R Kelley because he is rich and Black. Not every person who makes it into the spotlight should be there or should be thought of as a role model. You contradict yourself time and time again and your youth and inexperience is quite apparent. In your first post you totally big up Kim for teaching women how to sexually aggress men under the guise of empowerment but now you want to talk about her community and civil service work. Pick a side and stick to it. Today Kim comes off a woman who has learned the hard way and is looking to become a powerful voice for change but a decade ago, she and her music were a disgrace :thumbsdown:

  24. Brown Sista is about the uplifting and celebration of our brown sista’s in Hollywood and the people who post their thoughts/comments on this site have always delivered to that end. Until now.

    Real reppin hiphop you should have been taught at a young age that rudeness, cursing and name calling is not becoming of a lady.

    :stop: posting without putting a little thought behind your comments. Although I believe you are entitled to support & defend your favorite artist please recognize the rights of others to disagree.

    I’m beginning to suspect you are not a young sista at all, rather someone who is only interested in starting trouble. Take a walk in your neighborhood if you need to relieve stress, don’t take it out on the witty, intelligent and interesting people who post here.

  25. :hater: whatever, if u think those ignorant point of views r intelligent goes 2 show how slow u r, get a life!!

    Everyone criticizes everyone, it is not a “women of color” thing, and I’ve had women around me being in similar to worse situations. SO I know what I’m talking about. Kim is changing because she’s changing in her mind and realizes that you don’t have to be a product of your environment if you don’t want to.

    I don’t know if you were talking to me since I brought up Foxy but you don’t know my background and where I come from. In my environment I knew teenage prostitutes who brought money home to feed mouths cause that’s all they and their family taught them, lotta them were molested as FIRST experience, sold by their parents, so I know these girls’ problem very well. YET I didn’t become a product of my environment. Your mind is where your freedom begins, that’s what Kim is doing. Quincy Jones coulda been a drug dealer or thug to survive, he used to eat rats to survive as a child, he was in EXTREME poverty, yet he wasn’t. Oprah could have end up stripping for a few bucks, poor and molested as a child, look at her.

    Supporting girls like Trina and Foxy who exploit themselves make you part of the problem cause we’re financing the bullsh*t instead of HELPING THEM and perpetuating this and KEEPING them in the jail they built for themselves. If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem. If we don’t tell the truth to those women we ARE be part of the problem just like they are, I’m the type of person who doesn’t believe your past defines who you are but will tell you the truth about your present situation so it can help you change your future. Kimberly Jones lacked real people around her, these girls lack real people to let them know there are other options.

    Limitations come from the mind no matter where you come from, thats what they need to be told. Coming from where I’m from, I could have been a stripper, a hooker, a dealer, or video chick. I’ve started by own business and am living comfortably, I didn’t lose myself in the nonsense, and I want all my sisters to elevate themselves and KNOW that there’s another way, know that they’re worth better than that. Period.

    It’s not about despising them, it’s about keeping it real with them, telling them the truth. The truth is not easy to hear and often pisses you off cause it exposes the lie you live (ask Kim), but in the end it will set you free.

  27. Chanté, I don’t think real repping hiphop is interested in elevating her mind from its current state. As I look at her responses, I see they make less and less sense with that latest one just repeating the word “hater” (the equivalent of an un-evolved caveman’s grunt).

    She started out with an intelligent point of view, but the “real” real came out and proved to be unworthy of having a genuine thought. :loser:

    I never claimed to be better than anyone, you said I did, and no I was never a puppet. A puppet compromises himself/herself and loses his/her freedom. I’ve had to work at some company but I never compromised MYSELF. Besides now I started my own company (it’s always a risk, but I took it and don’t regret it). I don’t have an envious attitude, you don’t know where I come from, I don’t envy none of these chicks in the game because they’re not living anything that could be envied. I know KIM’s in the path of evolution and I commend her for that, I just said that people doing what KIM USED TO DO ain’t cool, I don’t hate the women (or men) I hate their actions and what they represent, there’s a difference. And people need to let them know. If I could, I would save them all. You think I’ve never had a friend exploiting herself??? And you think that I stood there watching her killing herself and never said nothing or ran away from her because I “hated” her? Nope, not my type. Real friends tell you what the average person won’t, even if it hurts. All those girls need more real people around them to tell them they’re worth better and can do better. I believe we’re not helping them by supporting what they do.

    Salt and Pepa, Finesse and Sequince, Roxanne Chante, The Real Roxanne, Queen Latifah and MC Lyte were the last female rappers I ever listened to. After their careers died things went downhill as far as females go.

  30. :iagree: see chante thats what im talking about, real talk, and im not mad at ur opinion, i was just expressing 2 people that some people want 2 change, and in kims cause, she is starting 2 see her true calling, and she’s starting 2 make a change, she will never be a lauryn hill of music, but at the same time people never give her any slack because of who she is, its better 2 show people the error of their ways rather than shun them!!! well put chante

    Too late for that. You showed your true colors several posts ago when you referred to the women here as bches. This is typical talk from the 90’s rap generation. You all love to use the B and N words.You mouth is vulgar and you have broken the only rule this blog has; which is no cursing, with almost every post you have made. So you could not possibly take the high road even if you tried to.

  34. :stop: raylene im not asking 4 ur forgiveness sweety, that was between me, and chante, we settled our differences on that issue, its people like u that like 2 keep the drama going, get over it!!

  35. Someone said in an above post that women need to support each other which is true! Many women don’t want to hear female rappers or watch women play in the WNBA and that is a shame. I don’t know the reason for the shortage but the women that do come out all go the “being sexy” route and talking about sex. If not, they are usually called dykes which is a shame. That is not what female rappers of the past were all about. Recently, Shawna and Remy Ma were recently dropped by their labels and that was a shock. Low sales might be a reason but they don’t put any effort into promoting them. I like Eve but I also agree she has been “hollywoodized.” I was all for Eve losing weight and being more sophisticated but I wonder if she will be the same. WHERE MY GIRLS AT?!?

  36. Have any of you ever seen Remy giving an interview? She is one emotionally disturbed and violent woman. She is just like 50 and the Game. Does she not know this is a business and it is all about selling music and endearing yourself to people? She is foever talking about who she hates or who she got in a fight with as if that is the normal way in which music is promoted. Why is she always mad and pissed and talking trash? Damn, this is music. It ain’t fight night. Remy was dropped because her music doesn’t sell to men or women and she doesn’t appeal to either men or women. She needs to re-evaluate how she approaches her music and the promotion of her music because obviously what she is doing is not working.

  37. I agree with Dana. Remy got issues.

    I don’t think it’ true that “women don’t wanna hear females rappers”. I have yet to find ONE woman who wasn’t behind Lauryn Hill when she came out, with the Fugees and then solo. I’m glad women today don’t support the Remy Mas and Jackie-Os. Black studio pimps are successful not because most black women and men love them, but because white people love those clowns and don’t need to spend money on “rapping video h*es” when they already have quiet ones in rap videos. That’s why they only spend on males, they have the “pimps and b*tches” theme with JUST the males, why would they pay the females too?

    And when some of these Femcees were called dykes it was by BOTH men and women, not just females. Still, no matter what they were labelled, they had a fanbase and used to be respected and supported by men and women TOO.

    Eve is NOT the last femcee, she’s only the last mainstream one. Mc Lyte is still making music, you have a Bay Area genius called Mystic. And Jean Grae is coming, Talib Kweli’s protege, I have her first album, they’re gonna try to make her reach the masses with her sophomore, REMEMBER THE NAME! JEAN GRAE!
