Who u got?

Honestly the only two female mc's I respect. Both had no sexual appeal whatsoever and would not smash even with beer googles. But they managed to become icons in hip hop

Missy has the goat videos tho.

Honorable mentions: mc lyte and yo-yo

    Queen Latifah gets my respect, but Missy Elliott has this strictly off longevity. Missy Elliott had an eight year run of releasing four critically acclaimed albums, five of them went platinum, and one of them went gold. Missy's not lyrically gifted as a rapper (nice when she's writing R&B songs though), but she's held her own creatively by pushing the envelope not just with her music, but with her videos. Missy's run 1997-2005 >>>>> any other female rapper. Every other female rapper, either quit after one monster year (Lauryn) or they tappered off after album #3 (if they made it that far).

    Queen La gets my vote, and the only time I wanted to smash was during her Living Single days before the breast reduction. With Missy, yeah the fat ugly 🤬 was creative with her music and vids but at the same time her videos were more appealing than her music. Personally she should've stuck with being a crooner than a rapper because her rhymes were wack as 🤬 and Queen Latifah would lambast her ass effortlessly when it came to trading bars. By the way, "Black hand side" >>>any Missy track you fools can think of.

    Missy was more creative, but she ain't 🤬 with no production. Her rhymes became more and more embarassing with each and following year. Latifah at least retained the class of her rhymes and All Hail The QUeen is undisputed hip-hop classic that pioneered all these hoes. Latifah can sing too.

    Missy Elliot was a gimmick..
    she never made serious or socially conscious songs..

    Missy is a great entertainer,
    but Latifah would have rapped circles around that girl..

    Queen Latifah..

    I probably should have voted for the Queen. In all honesty, Missy made more quality songs that i enjoyed but the Queen had more impact and success overall as an artist. When we talk art, we talk music and film. As an MC and a Singer, she's better then Missy. Then you have her stellar acting career which when looking a trappers turned actors, she's top three in the middle of Will Smith and Mos Def (or Tupac). Queen Latifah was down with the Native Tongues and put Naughty by Nature on. She also went toe to toe with MC Light.. Still with all that said, i check for Missy Elliot and her ABC raps because as an artist, she was more crafty and musical sort of like a James Brown whom did songs full of adlibs in his later career.

    False. "Wake Up" featuring Jay-Z is her biggest socially conscious song.
