LADIES FIRST

5 Gay Lady Rappers Who Are (Also) “Better Than Everybody”

4. Azealia Banks azeliabanksvid Who She Is: You think we’d make a list of queer lady rappers without mentioning the unavoidable Ms. Banks? Known as much for her insanely skillful spitting as she is for her cantankerous persona, her breakout hit “212” can be heard at pretty much any club, gay or straight, and will hopefully be played with such frequency until the end of time. After picking fights with Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Lady GaGa, and Bauer (among others), Banks is doing little to improve her reputation, but she continues to put out hit after hit after hit.

What She’s Up to Now: Currently on a world tour and constantly photographed in Gaultier-influenced Fifth Element body-suits (which, obviously, she looks perfect in).

Choice Lyric: “Do my dips and the spin/ Turn tricks for the fucking ends?/ You turned dick for the fucking gem?/ You a bum bitch to the end/ Come again, come again?”

    I absolutely love Azealia Banks and just about everyone else here looks fantastic but I cannot get down with white people who think it’s okay to use the n-word in their music, even if it is just to grab attention. Especially not when their white as the driven snow.

    Peaches is not a rapper, and besides Azealia and Dai (and that is arguably) none of these women are talented rapper, and hardly better than anyone. This list could have been conglomerated with the other one, and you could have had five decent gay rappers. Let’s be honest, compared to straight rappers like Kendrick Lamar or even Drake, none of these are “better ” than anyone else in the genre.

    I could drink the entire contents of a bottle of Windex and come-up with a better submission than Bianca Casady. QUEERTY knows jack-shit about music. Stick to articles about GLEE and/or posting pics of the Franco brothers, you fucking waste of 0’s and 1’s.

    This should be called “5 Queer Lady Rappers” etc – that’s assuming any of these women are lesbians. Because Peaches, Azealia Banks & Brooke Candy all identify as bisexual.
