Trying to make a Top 5 all time list is nearly impossible, so don’t email me about your dissatisfaction. Know that I have reason for my selections and you can agree or disagree. For an artist to be on my list they need numbers, staying power, and that one thing that separates them from the rest. 

5. Trina

Trina Hey Mikey ATL

At number 5 we have the “Diamond Princess” aka Trina. I definitely have a soft spot for her being that I was born in Florida. If you know anyone from the sunshine state or have visited, YOU KNOW Trin-Bean is gospel. Might even make you twerk that thang at the alter if you know what I mean. She makes this list for multiple reasons! None more than her being introduced to us in 1998 and now its 2019! 20 years in the game is unheard of for a female mc. Not to mention can you do any better than Pull Over? I rest my case.

“Look Back At Me” feat. Killer Mike 

 

 

4. Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea Hey Mikey ATL

Coming in strong at number 4 is Iggy Azalea. I’ve already gotten so much push back for this selection but quite frankly IDGAF. Iggy is white and soooooo right. Lets be honest many can’t get with Iggy because she’s not black but momma is talented. (period) Her song Fancy charted at #1 on Billboard, not to mention she has 3 others that charted in the Top 10. Plus her music videos already have billions of views and are the best of any female of this new generation. From her natural beauty to new found dance moves, she’s iconic already.

“F*ck It Up” feat Kash Doll

3. Lil’ Kim

Lil Kim Hey Mikey ATL

At number 3 I have the blueprint, Lil Kim. The original Queen Bee is always number one in my heart but I’m still adjusting to her new sound post prison. As a young kid there was none better than Kim. She taught me what shade was and also solidified herself as a fashion icon. She is what I call the “Don Dada”. I still haven’t heard a female mc that can take me on a lyrical journey and also be raunchy at the same time. Just listen to Not Tonight Magic Stick, you’er welcome.

“Get Money” feat. The Notorious B.I.G

“Pray For Me” ft. Rick Ross & Musiq Soulchild

 

2. Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj Hey Mikey ATL

Nicki Minaj is my runner up at number 2. Minaj has to be Top 2 on any list for her resume alone. She is the most successful female mc of all time statistically. When everyone knows your lyrics to Itty Bitty Piggy and it’s before you drop an album, you are set. She is one of the most controversial woman in the game but she’s also one of the most talented mc’s to ever live. Pop, Rap, RnB … it doesn’t matter the genre. She slays everything!

“Massive Attack” feat. Sean Garrett

 

1.Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot

Missy Elliot Hey Mikey ATL

 

Finally at numero uno, I have Missy Elliot. She is without question number one in my eyes. With 20+ years in the game and having touched so many careers … Ciara, Monica,Tweet, Aaliyah, Fantasia Jasmine Sullivan …she’s a lock at the pole position. Not to mention her iconic hits like The Rain to Work It, she’s in a class by herself. I mean did you not see her perform at the VMA’s? It was the best performance I’ve seen from a female mc in the last 5 years, at least. Hell I don’t know any men that have done more for music than Missy. From her one-of-a-kind dance routines to her outlandish music videos she is, THAT GIRL.

I rest my case.

Brandy and Monica gaves us the “Verzuz Battle” we have been waiting for! The two legendary singers who rose to fame as adolescents in the nineties are now fully grown women with rivaling musical catalogues and a history of personal beefs.

However, tonight, Brandy and Monica settled their issues–off-screen of course–and reached over 1.2 million viewers with their highly anticipated Verzuz Battle, creating a moods and moments none of us will ever forget!

Back and forth the ladies delivered hit after hit and bop after bop; which had many Generation X-ers and Millennials reconnecting with their childhood. From Brandy we heard hits like “What About Us?,” “Brokenhearted (the Wanye duet),” “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,” and more. Meanwhile Monica came just as heard with classics like “So Gone,” “4 U I Will,” “Everything To Me,” “First Night,” and more.

Naturally, the ladies dabbled in fun shade; reminiscing on the alleged slap down Monica gave Brandy in their youth, and their aforementioned off-screen heart to heart to clear the air. They apparently had not spoken to each other for eight years.  Nevertheless, their honesty and ability to forgive one another was endearing and an excellent example of how two people in a longstanding feud can heal one another.

 Honestly, their Verzuz Battle left us wanting a joint album from them. Brandy and Monica are magic together, and this is the closest match up in the history of the Instagram Live series. To us, there was no clear winner.

The positive commentary and feedback from thousands of celebrities and influencers; and over a million fans shows we definitely need R&B to make a comeback. The singers we have grown to know and love are good for more than just features and hooks. Brandy and Monica PLEASE go on tour! We will definitely buy tickets!
