There are constant debates on the internet about who are the best rappers of today. But what’s interesting is that it always seems to be -- at least 99 percent of the time -- we think of male rappers, not female.

Back in the '90s the music industry was loaded with female emcees like Monie Love, Roxanne Shante’, Da Brat, Foxy Brown, Queen Latifah, Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott and MC Lyte. It was more about balance back then. and unfortunately, that male/female balance amongst rappers and MCs no longer exists, which is a big part of the problem as it relates to our community.

As we move closer to the end of 2013 and the 30-year paradigm shift of consciousness and conscious hip-hip that some of my brothers and sisters refer to as "God-Hop", I thought it would be a good idea to shine the light on three female emcees that some of today’s male rappers should keep an EYE on because as the sayings go: “There is nothing new under the sun”, and “what goes around always comes back around”.

Thanks to this thing called the internet, the ‘Conscious Movement’ is on the move, and whatever you do, don’t get left behind!

Hotep Fam!
