The top 50 rappers of all time according to Vibe Magazine and Billboard have been released and the scrutiny is fierce, as we look at Brooklyn Tea Talk on GOAT Female rappers below.
Billboard and Vibe Magazine summarized Nicki Minaj’s number ten ranking with the following:
Hailing from South Jamaica, Queens by way of Trinidad and Tobago, Nicki Minaj earned her crown as the modern-day Queen of Rap with her fierce, braggadocious spirit. Her 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty established her as a lyrical powerhouse, shortly before she emerged as the First Lady of Young Money, solidifying the label’s ineffable trinity of chart-conquering rap beasts with Lil Wayne and Drake.
Over a slew of genre-bending albums (Pink Friday, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, The Pinkprint) and killer guest verses (most famously on Kanye West’s “Monster”), Nicki has defended her title for over a decade, with incredibly animated flows and alter egos – from the soft-spoken, pink-haired Harajuku Barbie to the volatile Roman Zolanski with the British cockney accent.
She’s undeniably blazed the trail for the next generation of female MCs, while at the same time, building a legacy whose impact is hardly limited to the hip-hop world: Nicki is one of only a dozen artists to have more than 100 Billboard Hot 100 entries, and earned the MTV Video Vanguard Award in 2022 for her provocative music videos.

At points Nicki was the biggest but she was never the best. For example.. she was never nicer than a Jean Grae or even a Rapsody. I like Nicki a lot but that Barb energy saying its disrespectful to compare her to other women is 🤮. And Lauryn Hill is the Greatest Of All Time.
