Season 2, Episode 3: Underrepresented

After the whole SHEther beef between Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj, we started thinking about women in hip-hop. As 80s babies who grew up in the 90s, we grew up during the Golden Age of women in rap music. In this episode, we’re taking a walk down memory lane and discussing the women rappers who were also role models when we were growing up. We are also digging into the state of women in hip-hop today and hopefully introducing you to someone who might become your new favorite MC. Below we’ve listed the names of women rappers who have influences our culture. Be sure to tweet us @unbasicpodcast and let us know which female rappers are spitting new flavor in your ear!
