Life Lessons That I Have Learned From Female Rappers

You know the saying anything boys can do girls can do it better, well it’s no exception when to comes to the music industry. For years, rap music was considered an all-male genre but guess what the females are dominating. Growing up, rap music has always been an influence in my life but I couldn’t relate to a man but it was one day when I saw a female picked up a mic and spit better than the boys.

Throughout my life, I was able to listen and relate to what a female has to say. It was then that I learned some life lessons:

1.Never take ish from anyone

This is the one rule that I ultimately go by because nothing in this world is given, you have to take to the next level. This is the one lesson that I have learned from Queen Latifah, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, MC Lyte, and Roxanne Shante. 

2. Always Fight For Yours

This rule every woman should follow and never compromise who you are. Go above and beyond to get what you want out of life. I have learned this lesson from the late great Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC and Rapsody.

3. Stay Classy And Graceful 

I know every woman is different but this rule applies to all women whether they are smart or not. What I’m really saying never let anyone take you out of your character.

4. Support Each Other 

This is the biggest rule that I have learned throughout my life and I have definitely seen first hand what happens when we don’t uplift each other. This needs to happen more often because we are put in this box and forced to compete with each other. Now this time around, I have seen more female empowerment from Cardi B. to Megan Thee Stallion.
