Top Ten Female Rappers Ever: From Trina to Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott, and Lauryn Hill
2. Missy Elliot
Missy is probably one of the funkiest individuals on the planet, male or female. She brings hip-hop to the next level, blending genres and freakin' flows in ways no one before her could have imagined. She's penned some of the most recognizable songs in hip-hop, and we couldn't be more stoked for her triumphant return to the game ... Coming soon.
1. Lauryn Hill
But without a doubt, the queen of all lyricists and beat-eating monsters is the one, the only miseducated Lauryn Hill. Her work with the Fugees made her one of America's most wanted MCs, and her solo career cemented the top spot. People still write raps wishing she'd come back, but whether she will or not remains to be seen. It'll be a long time before someone comes close to her majesty. But at least little girls can always put on her records.
