My existence is a life-long treasure hunt.

Back in the day, it did not matter what female rappers looked like, or whether they were sexy, feminine, or “butch”, as long as they brought the talent. Female rap was about having a good time, female empowerment, and socially conscious messages. Now that sub-genre of music just has tumbleweeds rolling all through it. I’m posting my favorite jams from female rappers. Join me, won’t you?

Shoop-Salt-N-Pepa

Gawd, I still love this song…I loved their confidence and they were so talented! On your mark get set go, let me go, let me shoop to the next man in a 3-piece suit/I spend all my dough, ray(?) me cutie/Shoop-shoo-ba-doobie like Scooby-dooby-doo/I love you in ya big jeans, you give me nice dreams, you make me wanna scream…lol let me stop. Ok one more: I swear, I stared, my niece my witness (lol) the brother had it goin’ on with somethin kinda mmm/Wicked, wicked(?) had to kick it/I’m not shy so I asked for the digits…awesomeness.

WHO YOU CALLIN’ A BITCH?! UNITYYYYY (You gotta let em know!) I am very surprised nobody has covered this song…the kids need it today more than ever.

I Wanna Be Down (Remix)-Brandy feat. MC Lyte, Yo-Yo, Queen Latifah

I still jam to the rap verses on this song…I love how they convey being sexy with smoothness without being raunchy.

Funkdafied-Da Brat/Jermaine Dupri

I loved Da Brat’s raps…she was all about having a good time in songs; very talented.
