All of these ladies be SANGIN’, but who would you say is the cream of the crop??

There has always been a huge debate about “Who is the best rapper of all-time?”, and while we love our MCs, we felt it was time to show some love to those who get busy on the mic without spitting hot bars of fury. There have been a bevy of soul-stirring, tear-jerking, mood-setting female vocalist that have graced us with their talents over the years from Nina Simone, to Patti LaBelle, to Lauryn Hill. We decided to round up some of the the best and let you, the readers, decide who stands and shines above them all.

Flip through to see your choices and an listen to one of their most classic songs.
