Girl power and p*ssy-popping rule these days since, arguably, today’s female rappers are going harder than their male counterparts in the game. Listed are the reasons why notable femcees Snow Tha Product, Iggy Azalea, Brooke Candy, Azealia Banks, and Honey Cocaine are the top 5 projected rappers of 2013:
Snow Tha Product
Hailing from California, Latina rapper Snow Tha Product set a trend with her mixtapes, cover songs, and notable viral hits ‘Holy Shit’ and ‘Drunk Love’. Snow also coins herself Snow White tha Product, along with other nicknames, and brands her business under the “WOKE” or “WAKEYAGAMEUP” slogans. Using a ‘rapid-fire’ style of rapping has projected Snow Tha Product for major releases in 2013, including a debut studio album.
Rising to prominence in the hip-hop community with her viral hits ‘P***y’ and ‘My World’, both released midway 2011, Iggy Azalea truly paved a way for herself in the rap genre with an unconventional face for Hip-Hop and high sex appeal. Shortly after, Azalea had been scouted by Grand Hustle’s own, T.I., and became the first female to cover XXL Magazine’s 2012 Freshman Class. Rumors tied her to a relationship with Harlem rapper ASAP Rocky, which both parties have since confirmed. Azalea’s highly-anticipated debut album, “The New Classic“, is projected to drop in the ending quarters of 2013.
The age of Tumblr and the “new wave” of female rappers most likely inspired the eccentricities of stripper-turned-rapper Brooke Candy. First known for appearing in Grimes’ experimental video for ‘Genesis’, followed by her own hits ‘Das Me’ and ‘Everybody Does’, the Queen of Italy (one of Candy’s aliases) is projected to cause quite the stir in 2013 and has even promised the arrival of a “Freaky Prince$$” mixtape later this year.
2012 birthed a very provocative artist with Azealia Banks. Well known for the viral sensation ‘212’, Banks rose to rap notoriety due to her futuristic style and artistic potential. Banks also gained a bad reputation for knotting a string of beefs and heated Twitter rants with household name celebrities such as Jim Jones, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Kreayshawn, and even others names on this top 5 list. It’s no doubt that Banks futuristic music style and indifference to beef has projected her into the spotlight, but through it all she’s prepping to release her first studio album, “Broke With Expensive Taste“, early 2013.
Widely-known for her affiliation as Tyga’s protege, Honey Cocaine brings an edge to the face of rap by using her soft/innocent looks in sharp contrast with her cutthroat lyrics, which are projected to furnish her a productive 2013. However, recent news broke regarding Honey, linking her rapper Freddy E’s suicide.
