In recent years, there has been an overwhelming rise in women who have staked their claim in the Rap Game. Even so, there are still those who argue that women aren’t as appreciated for their lyrical abilities, but Dreezy stepped forward to show love to her fellow lady emcees. The Chicago rapper tweeted a few names that she believes haven’t received the recognition they deserve, sparking yet another “Top” list discussion about women in Rap.

Snow Da Product. Dreezy. Add to the list, put somebody on today.” She added, “All of these girls can go toe to toe wit yo fav rapper. I’ll be money on it.”
Elsewhere she stated, “Cupcakke, Lakeyah, B.I.A. Tokyo Jetz, Melii [strong arm emoji] Etc. Y’all know wassup.” After the tweets were reposted by The Neighborhood Talk, Dreezy slid in their comments to clarify a few things. “[And] When I said toe to toe w yo fav rapper, I was speaking on men,” said wrote. “Nicki [Minaj] is the goat. I’m showin love to ppl I felt is slept on [red heart emoji].”
