Top Ten Female Rappers Ever: From Trina to Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott, and Lauryn Hill
8. Nicki Minaj
She's the youngest on our list, and she's clearly supertalented. Her verse on "Monster" outshined the rest of the song's star-studded cast. But maybe Nicki would rank higher if she wasn't busy filling her albums with half-assed pop bullshit. "Starships," really?
7. Lil Kim
Lil Kim is a hard ass bitch. Before Minaj was poppin' her pussy around the stage, Kim was getting shit heated runnin' with Biggie, Diddy, and Lil' Cease. She's the queen bee of hard sexuality, but she never goes pop with her shtick. Her flow is smooth and her disses scathing. Just the way a lady should be.
