Billboard's Hottest Women Rappers List Garners Mixed Comments From Fans

The hip-hop world is abuzz with discussion and debate over Billboard's recently released ranking of the hottest female rappers of the year, which includes newcomers and industry veterans.

AceShowbiz - When Billboard dropped its list of the hottest female rappers, the internet exploded with both praise and criticism. Music fans are still reeling from Apple's controversial "100 Greatest Albums of All Time", and Billboard's fresh installment has become another lightning rod. The list ranks artists based on the quality of their records, chart performance, cultural buzz, business endeavors and touring success.

Nicki Minaj claimed the top spot, much to the dismay of some fans. But let's be fair, Nicki's influence and accomplishments are unmatched. Not only has she laid the groundwork for her peers, but she's also achieved a resurgence with a number one single and a record-breaking tour. Her impact is undeniable, with artists like Cardi B, GloRilla and Doja Cat citing her as an inspiration. Even GloRilla acknowledged that Minaj gets too much hate considering all the doors she's opened for female rappers.

However, rising stars like Sexyy Red and Megan Thee Stallion have also rapidly ascended. Sexyy Red and Megan rounded out the top three spots, though fans have mixed feelings about their placements. Doja Cat and Ice Spice completed the top five, with Doja Cat's notable success in both pop and rap spheres raising questions about Megan's higher ranking.

The absence of Rapsody particularly irked fans. Known for her technical prowess and cerebral rhymes, the North Carolina native just released the acclaimed album "Please Don't Cry" in May. Fans voiced their displeasure, "No Rapsody is an automatic ignore," one user remarked. Others suggested artists like Che Noir, Lola Brooke and Kamaiyah as deserving candidates.

The criteria Billboard used to assemble the list inevitably stirred debate. Aside from mainstream stars like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they also acknowledged talents such as Flo Milli, who has had a breakout year with hits like "Never Lose Me". JT from City Girls is forging her solo path with promising success, while Mulatto continues to rake in hits and accolades, including a Grammy nod for Best New Artist.
