Female rappers have been on the come up and have taken 2021 by storm. From Coi Leray to Doja Cat to City Girls, hip-hop’s hot new female rappers are making all the noise with no signs of letting up. We lined up a list of who’s up next to blow on the female rap roster, took some suggestions from Memphis’ clairvoyant vegan NLE Choppa, polled SOHH’s millions of followers across the internets, talked to some industry folk and — with a little back and forth debating — compiled this list of the Top 10 Female Rappers You Want To Watch In 2022. Whew. Thank us next year.
