Hakeem Jeffries Is Honoring Female Rappers This Month
Brooklyn Congressman Hakeem Jeffries has decided to celebrate Women’s History Month a little differently this year, and he’s doing so by honoring some of his favorite female rappers. He announced via Medium on the last day of February that he would be showcasing one female rapper every day for the first 10 days in march, and emphasized that with Donald Trump in office, Hip-Hop is his “great escape.”
Jeffries writes about the meaning of his mission, “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 then explained what he would be showcasing over the first 10 days in March saying, “On these groundbreaking Hip Hop collaborations, often while competing against other rap icons, the phenomenal female MC performances on the TOP TEN list show the world what Black Girl Magic is all about.”
Now in the second day of the month, Hakeem has honored both Eve and Monie Love.
We’ll have to wait for a little over a week to see all of Jeffries’ selections for dopest female emcee collabs of all time, but the fact that he’s compiling this list in the first place is pretty dope already.
