The First Lady of Taylor Gang, Ethiopian-born Washington-raised Lola Monroe has received heavy criticism in regards to her rapping abilities since being signed to Wiz Khalifaâ€™s imprint last year.
Although, you canâ€™t blame hip-hop fans for wondering exactly what talent this former video vixen can bring to the table with female rappers such as Nicki Minaj dominating the scene.
During an interview with TaleTela Wiz Khalifa says: “Sheâ€™s the best female rapper Iâ€™ve ever heard in my life. Lyrically Lola Monroe is better than Nicki Minaj.”
“Everybody’s a working progress. I remember when I first started. I don’t feel like she’s lacking anything, I think people just get so used to not appreciating something. They don’t want to be the first to appreciate it.”
Questions have been raised as to whether Lola is on par with rival female rappers such as Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Kreayshawn . It is said that Lola’s flow is weak as well as her delivery not being up to scratch. Lola recently hit back saying she doesnâ€™t feel any of the struggles of being a female rapper and that she is loving every single moment of it. Comparisons are always being made between female rappers and it seems only one can come out on top.
It would appear that there is only room for one ‘HOT’ female rapper in the game at one time. At the moment the female rapper controlling the game is undoubtedly Nicki Minaj. Nicki is the first female rapper to go platinum in nine years since her rival Lil Kim was dominating the scene.
Another femcee who has created a big buzz at the moment is T.I.â€™s new artist Azealia Banks with her undeniably unique flow. Could she be the female rapper that will knock Nicki off of the top spot? Hustle Grand’s Australian newcomer Iggy Azalea is also making waves and is a force to be reckoned with.
However, she has had to fight against the stereotypes cast against her being a white female rapper. Â ”Race to me is a low blow that people just use when they have nothing else to hate on,” Iggy told XXL Magazine.
“There are a million and one stereotypes people try to put on me every day. How a woman should act, how an Australian should act, how a white person should act.”
With ‘Gucci Gucci’ rapper Kreayshawn also hoping to change the game, the question is whether the remainder of 2012 or even 2013 will see the rise of more than one female rapper competing with Nicki who is currently sitting on her throne undefeated.
We’ve had the likes of Lil Kim, Trina, Missy Elliott, Foxy Brown, Eve, Lauryn Hill and Da Brat. But itâ€™s time for the new school – Who Will be next to take over the female rap scene? Will there ever come a time when there will more than one femcee sitting on the throne?
