Why are there no good female MCs these days? I I know it's a matter of taste and I'm sure people can start naming underground ones that are good, but seriously. The ones on the radio are trash. Azealia Banks and Nicki Minaj have some technical skills but leaves me cold and/or irritated and just not into it either on a lyrical or a production level. Cardi B et al. I just can't stand on any level. Most other female MCs these days I could name I just don't dig either. Now, I don't really like most hip hop these days so it could simply be that, but I feel like back in the day we had positively an embarrassment of riches in this category. Not just Lady of Rage, we had Lauryn Hill, MC Lyte, Missy Elliot, Foxy, Queen Latifah, Eve, Da Brat, and more. These talented ladies all went super-mainstream in the 90s. Now granted, there was much better hip-hop on the radio in those days, but what happened? Do we have any females making it in the rap game who sound good and are lyrically fierce and talk about more than pussy this that? Sounds like a tall order but they were in plentiful supply for a certain number of years and then seem to have gone out of fashion.
