Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj, Da Brat, and Queen Latifah among the artists featured on the list.

As part of a newly-published list, HipHopWired compiled a list of the best female rappers. Titled “The Best Female Rappers Of All Time…As Of March 2015” and created in honor of Women’s Appreciation Month, the list ranks the 25 best female lyricists.

“It has been a long time coming but with all the platinum plaques and mounting accolades, female rappers have finally earned enough clout to be known for emceeing more than their estrogen,” the publication says. “To close out Women’s Appreciation Month, Hip-Hop Wired has compiled the best female rappers of all time, as of now.”

Kicking off the list at #25 is Memphis, Tennessee wordsmith, Gangsta Boo. Other Southern artists featured on HipHopWired’s “The Best Female Rappers Of All Time…As Of March 2015” list includeRapsody (#23) and Trina (#17).

Listed at #5, Young Money rapstress Nicki Minaj was one of the newer female emcees to make their way into the top 10.

And several spots up, clenching the #1 position is New Jersey singer/rapper, Lauryn Hill. HipHopWired dubbed Ms. Hill “the x-factor in the platinum magnet Fugees” and listed The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill as the musician’s best project.
