The founder of Grind Time Now, Drect, has released a new blog which gives a detailed look at the world of female battle rap. He starts by giving a brief history of major moments in the world of female battle rap, lists his personal top ten, those to watch out for in the future, and links to classic battles. This is a must read for anyone who is interested in getting into female battle rap, but may not know where to begin. Below is a small excerpt, and you can read the rest by clicking here.
People always ask me if there are any good female battlers out there. They tell me they hate listening to girls rap, then try to be nice because they remember that I manage Gattas. What these idiots don’t know is that there are enough dope female emcees on planet Earth to start a hip hop revolution. Search “female emcee” in youtube and you will find pages on pages of gems. Of course, like all youtube searches, you will also find some hot trash. This is where I come into play; a guide through the world of feminism in hip hop – specifically battling. Prepare to find yourself immersed in not only this blog, but the female battle rap world for the next few weeks. Just make sure your internet doesn’t suck – you have a lot of videos to check out.
