Female rappers are queens, rule breakers, pioneers and badass bitches. Oh, and they’re also some of the hottest women in music. Whether we’re talking about the CrazySexyCool of TLC‘s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, the “boom-boom-boom” feeling that Nicki Minaj gives us, or the chic, sleek sensuality of rising star Iggy Azalea, the 20 women on this list are making us lick our lips every time they spit out rhymes.
It’s tough enough to get to the top of the hip hop heap when you’re a guy, but the road to the top is so much harder for women. They’ve got to beat misogyny and rewrite the rules for themselves. The women on this list aren’t just amazing MCs. They aren’t just tantalizingly beautiful women. They’ve all got a wild spirit that makes them boss bitches and women any man’d love to be bossed by.
