FEMALE RAPPERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD
For some reason mainstream media enjoys hiding female emcees. Right now Queens native and Young Money representative Nicki Minaj has got everyone's attention. Props to her for bringing the spotlight back to the ladies. Let's get our Carmen Sandiego on and scan the globe and find other female emcees who are doing their thing as well!
If you know of other amazing female emcee's we need to give props too,
