5 Influential NYC Female Rappers By Borough


Aug. 1 2018, Updated 2:16 p.m. ET

The Big Apple isn’t only known for Times Square or for its hotdog carts, it’s known for the musicians that originated from there. Just like how a worm goes into an apple to feed off of it, these artists live in New York to get inspired by the big city. Female artists like Nicki Minaj was a Queens girl who didn’t know her potential in life until she started rapping. She became one of the largest female rappers in the world.

Even when you search “female rappers” on google, she’ll be the first name to pop up. Each female rapper has a story about how they got into the rap industry. Cardi B started off as just an exotic dancer from the Bronx who made funny rants on Instagram. She moved on to acting when she joined the VH1 reality show, Love & Hip Hop. These female rappers usually get undervalued because society believes that girls from certain parts of the city aren’t able to achieve their fullest potential. As exotic as these stories sound, these female rappers made a name for themselves.

Starting from Queens until Staten Island, here are the five influential NYC female rappers by borough:
