The Female Element (Playlist)

The rise of social media broke down a lot of barriers to entry of the music industry. No longer are people waiting around for that once in a lifetime opportunity, and no longer do record labels make all the calls. Fortunately, this allows for exposure to more artists, and more specifically, female artists. I decided to create a playlist showcasing the ladies. The Female Element is a playlist highlighting women at different levels in their musical career, as well as showing appreciation for their talent. 

Tokyo Jetz kicked off the playlist with her appropriately titled single, “The One”, which is full of energy and definitely a speaker knocker. I kept the energy up with Rico Nasty, who is rapidly gaining traction from her unique personality and engaging visuals.

This playlist features independent artists, rising artists, A-list artists, and everything in between. You will hear from household names such as Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, along with rising artists, such as Atlanta’s own Yani Mo.

With current hits as well as classics, the playlist dips back in time with hits like “Get Me Home” by Foxy Brown and Blackstreet, and Da Brat’s “That’s What I’m Looking For”. I wanted to make sure I showed some examples of where female rappers today came from.

 

Django Jane” by Janelle Monae is from her recently released album Dirty Computer. Even though she doesn’t consider herself a rapper, her delivery in the song definitely made for a spot on the playlist.

Also, I must admit that I felt kind of weird putting Chris Brown on a female appreciation playlist, but that “Pretty Brown Eyes” sample was right on time. 

This was my first carefully curated playlist and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. My eyes were opened to more content from female rappers and the process even took me on a mini time-travel. Female rappers are just as strong as males, and that is what this playlist shows.
