Currently, the music industry is a multi-million dollar empire. Though rap has always been associated with men, the #Female Artists have come up and showed their dominance in the game. To be at the #Top of your game is not an option in this genre. The competition is stiff, and musicians have to do their best to stay relevant. However, female rappers have to work harder than their male counterparts to get recognition. They may not earn as much as Diddy and Jay-Z, but these female rappers certainly have made some good money.
