“In every field of human endeavor, women excel when given a fair shot. It’s true in politics, business, science, academia and Hip Hop,” he wrote for Medium. In honor of Women’s History Month, which starts tomorrow, I will drop my TOP TEN list of the best female rap lyrical collaborations of all time.”
