Top Ten Female Rappers Ever: From Trina to Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott, and Lauryn Hill
6. Da Brat
Taking it back to the '90s for one of the hottest female flows ever. Da Brat is so funkdified, spitting that ghetto slang for the So So Def crew. This Chicago chick was the first woman in the rap game to ever go platinum. Plus, Da Brat's street image helped mark her as the "female Snoop Dogg," and people loved it.
5. Jean Grae
She may not be as commercially successful as the other ladies on our list. But Jean Grae has rhymed with the likes of Talib Kweli, The Roots, Mos Def, Styles P, Immortal Technique, and on and on. You only have to listen to her once to see why these hip-hop superstars would be enamored with the flow. Add her incredible talent for storytelling and a refusal to speak anything but the truth, and you're messing with something dangerously real.
