Women of Hip Hop
13 fierce femcees + singers. RESPECT.
Nicki Minaj: Do we need to explain why Nicki’s here? She says it herself in “Truffle Butter": "I'm still the highest sellin' female rapper, for the record.” Recognize.
Missy Elliott: A pioneering woman of hip hop, Missy's coming with new music soon. It’s best you start brushing up on ‘Under Construction’ right now.
Beyoncé: Bow down, b*tches! Queen Bey's game-changing 2013 album came with a harder sound and a rap persona named Yoncé. H-Town, represent!
Rihanna: Every hook Rihanna sings turns a track to gold—just ask Nicki, JAY Z, Kanye, Eminem, Drake… Plus, “Bitch Better Have My Money” has RiRi on her own flow. We back it.
Iggy Azalea: What’s hip hop without controversy? Whether you like it or not, Iggy raps. Do your thing, Iggy-Iggs. We await your “Pretty Girls” collab with Britney Spears.
M.I.A.: When M.I.A. speaks her mind, we listen. Rumor has it she’s been spotted in the studio! But even without new music, we still play “Bad Girls” on the regular.
Tinashe: If you’ve been waiting for a sassy star who can sing and dance on stage, Tinashe is IT. You haven’t seen the “2 On” singer “Drop That Kitty”? You’re missing out.
Jhené Aiko: Need a spirit animal? Meet Jhené. We love her laid-back attitude and sultry voice. All she wants to do is chill, and her music provides the perfect soundtrack.
Dej Loaf: After her song “Try Me” propelled her to popularity last year, Dej Loaf has everyone from T.I. to Wiz to Drake hopping on HER bandwagon.
Elliphant: Elliphant pairs Swedish pop production with lyrical prowess for a wild, genre-bending ride. We highly recommend you check it out.
Tink: Timbaland often says Tink is next in line to the late Aaliyah, but we say she stands on her own. Don't let her velvety voice fool you—she goes hard and she’s ready to take over.
Kehlani: We’re inspired by the way Kehlani holds her own with the boys. As the sole female member of the Bay Area rap collective, HBK, expect big things from her.
Kate Tempest: An award-winning poet AND a badass MC? We're in. Kate cites Wu-Tang Clan as an influence, and we can hear it in her masterful wordplay.
