The truth is it takes a tough lady to top the charts. At the top, it doesn't matter if you're sexy. You're judged by the content of your lyrics and the freak of your flow.
Only the realest survive. So it's time we gave props to the trill women who've shown just how raw a real lady can be.

Cheryl "Salt" James and Sandra "Denton" Pepa, along with Deidra Roper (AKA DJ Spinderella), helped pave the way for females in the rap game during the mid '80s.

They set the all-girl formula on fire.
