I seem to be in party/fun mode lately and I’m loving it. Not taking life too seriously and just appreciating the moment. As such, I wanted to share some of my favorite female rappers who like to have a good time, too. No basic bitches allowed.
I fell for Kreayshawn when her song “Gucci Gucci” blew up in 2011. Yeah, her lyrics aren’t deep and she likes to smoke weed, but you can’t deny she goes hard…like real hard.
I’ve been a fan of Lady Sovereign for years. She’s so tiny and unique. Lady Sovereign is openly a lesbian and she criticizes stereotypical female gender roles in her lyrics, which is awesome. Oh yeah, and if “So Human” sounds familiar to you, that’s because it samples The Cure’s song “Close to Me”. Just another reason why Lady Sovereign is way cool.
I would liken Colette to Ke$ha’s little sister with a little less sleaze and lots of spunk. She appears sweet and innocent, but Colette can hold her own with her rhymes. I find it interesting that she used to be a competitive tennis player, but had to quit due to an injury. Just goes to show that roadblocks in life can lead to even bigger successes.
This South African rap group is so strange. And I love it. Yo-Landi and Ninja both have serious rap skills, but I particularly like Yo-Landi. There’s something oddly childlike about her and her foul mouth throws me off. It’s also super rad that Die Antwoord uses three different languages in their songs, blending them together very well. Their visuals are off the chain, too.
Brooke is one filthy girl. I adore her look, though. Most epic hair ever! I’m also slightly afraid of her. Brooke is a stripper as well as a rapper and nudity is no big deal for her. She definitely doesn’t have a filter. Sorry if you have sensitive ears! Brooke Candy just doesn’t give a fuck.
And there you have my fierce picks for female rap. While rap is not my favorite genre of music, I do quite enjoy it and have dabbled in it myself. You never know what you might excel at until you give it a try!
I’m now going back to partying like a rockstar. 😉
