Keep The International Women’s Day Celebrations Going With A Stellar Female MC Tape (Mix)

Yesterday (March 8) marked International Women’s Day. Like all cultural movements, Hip-Hop has depended upon women for survival since its inception. In 2015, there are a host of female superstars, moguls, and elite professionals at the top of culture and Rap industry. However, along the way over the last 35-plus years, there have been many pioneers, exceptional MCs, DJs, and artists who helped us all (women, men, etc.) arrive here.

Dope Folks Music (Ras Kass, Tha Alkaholiks, Black Sheep)  put together an exceptional mix of Hip-Hop songs made by female artists that showcase immense talent, true innovators, and some of the lesser-profiled voices, styles, and words that made this thing of ours all the better:
