Venus Rising: The Reincarnation Of The Female Emcee
In our Man of the Year/Rookie of the Year issue, out on stands now, we compiled a list in our “Venus Rising” feature of some of the hottest female emcees of 2012. These ladies have taken inspiration from those that laid down the work before them such as Missy Elliot, MC Lyte, Yo-Yo, Lil’ Kim, Foxxy Brown, Lauryn Hill, Salt-N-Pepa, and many others. These ladies have made their mark in a boy’s club and came out on top as females in the industry. In the past year, we’ve seen female emcees like Lola Monroe, Rapsody, Nitty Scott and others emerge on the scene and put out some music that landed them in the spotlight ready to being a new generation of the female rapper. Make sure to check out our latest issue, on stands now, to see how these ladies took over the female emcee game!
