Ever since MC Sha Rock of the The Funky Four Plus One rapped on “That’s The Joint,” it opened the door wide open for girls to rock the microphone. While their male counterparts tend to get the lion share’s of the spotlight, female MC’s have proven to be just as proficient if not more in terms of delivering lyrical excellence.

Throughout the years the ladies of Hip-Hop have created memorable moments on wax through stellar guest appearances, creating anthems and adding that much needed feminine touch. But there is a noticeable difference between memorable and classic.

Out of hundreds of female MC’s, only a small sorority have truly created audio magic. So in honor of MC Lyte receiving the “I Am Hip-Hop” award at the recent 2013 BET Hip-Hop awards, we present the greatest female Rap verses in history.

This was certainly not an easy task but it came down to what bars really impacted us and remain indelible within Hip-Hop culture. Let us know your favorite and if we missed out on anything in the comments section.
