Compositions & Coffee Presents: "Creative Soul Digest"
Beast Coast Wednesday
What up FAM and get ready for BEAST COAST WEDNESDAY!!!
I love to get y’all pumped up on Wednesday and ready to power through the rest of the week. This week especially since it’s all about our female MC’s that paved the way for the artist of today. Hip-hop is a male dominated industry but women have broken through to show they are also able to hold their own with the best of them and even outshine them. To honor our baddies in the game I’m going to keep it brief and let their music speak for itself. Last I’ll have a bomb playlist for you at the end with all my fave songs from each artist. Just click the link, listen, then download on your streaming platform. Let’s get it…
Best Female MC’s
No introduction needed y’all know and I sung her praises last month as well. From her work with the Fugee’s to the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill she has the bars, vocal prowess, and is a pure lyricist.
Foxy Brown has influenced both male and female artists with her vicious rhymes.
The Queen is the ultimate MC, role model, and entrepreneurs. She’s successful and has been an inspiration for all others to explore different arenas and become not just entertainers but businesswomen.
Hands down one of the best to ever do it. She’s been ahead of the game as not just a musician but a fashion icon. A true influence to so many that have come after her no questions.
We all know the song and the lyrics that put her on the map (in case you don’t My Neck, My Back) and she continues to make music today.
Was the first female rapper out of Murder Inc.
Crime Mob’s Diamond and Princess
Diamond and Princess were the leading ladies of Crime Mob and they brought fire, sex appeal, and charismatic lyrics that helped the group gain mainstream popularity.
Another legend where no introduction is needed. These queens have been dubbed, “The First Ladies of Rap and Hip Hop.”
One of the greatest to ever do it TRULY! Her creativity knows no bounds as she gifts the culture with music and visuals.
I know y’all didn’t forget about Ms. Trina....I Told Y'all haha
Labeled the pioneer of female hip-hop, MC Lyte is a grammy nominated American rapper and a true OG.
A true entertainer Eve is a rapper, actress, talk show host, and a singer-songwriter. She can do it all but I will always remember her as the early 2000s E-V-EEEE.
Shawna and Ludacris were an amazing duo and she holds the crown as the first female artist to be signed to Def Jam South.
The So So Def Queen! Winning as Best Rap Album, Top Rap Artist, Single, Top Female Rap Artist Da Brat is a legacy and is up there with the best to ever do it.
TLC’s Left Eye Lopez
A prominent member of the group TLC she brought home 4 Grammy’s and had a brief solo career before her life was cut short.
Those are just my number one’s please feel free to share yours as well. Alright lastly I got my list of top songs by each artist so check’em out and drop me a comment…
