What makes a good Rap Song? I would say it would be a mix of the following:

1. Intelligent lyrics and word play.
2. Bragging.
3. A catchy beat.
4. Bragging.
5. Lots of talk about bling.
6. Bragging.
7. Sending threatening words to real or imagined haters.
8. Bragging.
9. Innuendo/Double entendres/Vulgar lyrics for no good reason.
10. Bragging.

 

Choosing my favourite song by a female rapper would be based on whether it meets the above criteria and if I would listen to it over and over again.

 

My favourite song would be a tough choice between ‘Lick Shots’ by Missy Elliot or ‘Keep On Keepin’ On‘ by MC Lyte or ‘Keep It Movin‘ by MC Lyte or ‘Lost Ones’ by Lauryn Hill or ‘No Matter What They Say’ by Lil’ Kim. I also don’t mind a trap beat once in a while (hello, ‘Bodak Yellow’ by Cardi B’).
