While rap may have started out as a mostly male-dominated genre, the ladies who have been successful in the rap game over the years are just as good at spitting hard and fast rhymes as their guy counterparts. But out of newer rhymestresses like Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. and legendary names like Missy Elliott and Lauryn Hill, who gets your vote for the best female rapper?
Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty to tax-evasion charges in federal court today (June 29). The charges stem from the ex-Fugees member owing $1.8 million in back taxes. The veteran rapper could face up to three years in prison and $75,000 in fines for her misdeed.
The fallout from Nicki Minaj canceling her Hot 97's Summer Jam 2012 appearance continues as Lauryn Hill addressed the confusion over Minaj's tweet that she invited the former Fugees member to perform alongside her at the radio event.
If Lauryn Hill isn't going to release any new music, the next best thing she can do is allow us to relive the brilliance of her only solo studio album, 1998's 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.' The celebrated hip-hop star sat down with Reebok to discuss her classic record.
