It’s true - the Hip-Hop game is predominantly filled with male rappers. In the young history of rap music, a handful of female emcees like Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliott and MC Lyte have enjoyed immense success and earned real respect from their male counterparts. In this article, we’re taking a look at five of the sexiest and most successful females in the rap industry right now. Not only are these sexy rappers making some really fresh music, but they have striking good looks as well to match their talent. Enjoy!
5 Iggy Azalea
Originally from Sydney, Australia, Iggy Azalea is a new rapper on the Hip-Hop scene making some real waves. She moved to the United States in 2010 and lived in various Southern cities like Miami, Atlanta and Houston. While living in these places, she developed a Southern American accent that takes some getting used to, considering that she’s a belle from down under. But Iggy has another trick under her sleeve too: she is blessed with good looks and a voluptuous and very attractive physique. A few years ago, she was actually dating Harlem Hip-Hop heartthrob A$AP Rocky, and she’s currently the main squeeze of LA Laker’s baller Nick Young aka Swaggy P. Iggy is also signed to Wilhelmina models, so she can add that accolade to her resume as well. In music and entertainment, being sexy and attractive are important characteristics to have, and in those categories, Iggy has no problems at all. Her new album The New Classic just dropped – be sure to check it out.
4 Angel Haze
Even though the svelte & sexy 22-yr-old rapper Angel Haze only emerged in the rap game in 2012, she has advanced very far in a very short time. She hails from Detroit and has a ferocious, rapid rhyming style that has won her a large following of loyal fans all over the world. Haze’s unique style and attractive demeanor has made her a quick favorite of the fashion set - designers like Alexander Wang and Mark McNairy are some of her biggest fans. Her fresh fashion style actual hearkens back to the sexy style of Aaliyah – the sultry R&B singer of the ‘90s. Angel’s sexuality has received headlines in the press – she claims to be “pan-sexual” and doesn’t consider herself as either “gay” or “straight.” She claims that she can be with anyone she falls in love with regardless of gender. Angel Haze released her major label debut album Dirty Gold at the end of 2013, and she’s currently touring in support of that release.
3 Lola Monroe
The 27-yr-old rapper Lola Monroe has had quite a few different careers in the Hip-Hop industry. She first started out as a model named Angel Luv, and during this period, she modeled for magazines like XXL, King and Smoothe Magazine. She was also a very in-demand video vixen and appeared in various music videos for artists like Trey Songz, 50 Cent, Twista and Young Jeezy. In the last few years, she decided to drop the modeling and pick up the microphone to become a rapper. She chose the moniker “Lola Monroe” and was soon introduced as the first lady of Wiz Khalifa’s rap group, Taylor Gang. She has released two mixtapes in her burgeoning rap career, and she recently had a child with a rapper named King Los (who was recently signed to P.Diddy’s Bad Boy Label). It will be interesting to see whether she matches her success in the modeling world when she eventually puts out her first major label album.
2 Nicki Minaj
In the last five years, Nicki Minaj has exploded on the music scene not only as one of the biggest rappers, but as one of the most popular global pop stars. Similar to fellow pop queen Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj has made herself into a recognizable household name by wearing outlandish costumes and bright, attention-grabbing wigs. But even without all these costumes and exaggerated outfits, Nicki is quite the looker when she decides to pare things down and portray a more stripped-down look. For those who aren’t convinced, check out Ms. Minaj in the new movie The Other Woman that recently came out starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton. You’ll see a different side of Nicki Minaj that will most likely surprise you in a good way.
Of all the rappers featured in this list of sexiest female rappers, Trina has the most seniority and has been in the limelight the longest. The Miami rapper first entered the Hip-Hop game in 2000, and enjoyed success alongside another successful Florida rapper named Trick Daddy. To date, she has released five albums including her debut The Baddest Bi*ch and her 2008 album titled Still da Baddest. Trina is of Dominican and Bahamian descent and in the past she has been linked romantically to Lil’ Wayne and most recently French Montana (the Bronx rapper who is now dating Khloe Kardashian). Trina is currently working on her sixth album, and recently put out the video for the first single Money Ain’t A Problem.
