The rise of the female rapping artist in America has seen an exponential increase in recent years.
With over 20 million female artists and rappers on the Billboard charts, it has been a hotbed of innovation and creative output.
According to research conducted by the Women’s Media Center (WMCC), the number of female rappers has doubled over the past four years and is projected to grow to nearly 30 million by 2019.
In a country where a record number of women are dropping out of the workforce, this is a great sign for the country’s budding female-driven hip-hop industry.
Despite being one of the fastest-growing genres of music on the charts, female rappers still only account for one-fifth of all artists on the list.
So how are female rappers becoming a bigger and bigger part of the music industry?
A lot of it has to do with the internet, and the growing number of independent artists and labels, according to the WMCC.
With an explosion of content on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter, it is now possible for women to get exposure and get paid for their work.
“There are more independent female rappers and female artists, but the number is just so much higher now,” said Mandy Sorenson, co-founder and CEO of the WMCT.
“There are a lot of people making money off of women and we want to help them do that.”
According the WMPC, the rise of female rap artists has been fueled by the rise in interest in online r&b artists and their music.
The increase in demand for female rappers coincided with the rise to prominence of the internet in the late 2000s.
“[In 2000] you had all these r&s on YouTube and MTV and all these online raps that were basically nothing but r&ing,” Soren, who co-founded the Women in Music Project (WIMP), told The Guardian.
“It was like, you know what?
I’m going to do my thing.
And it was kind of cool to be a part of that and that was the genesis for it.
Now, with the explosion of YouTube, with Instagram, with Twitter, with Facebook, there is so much content out there. “

It’s like a whole new generation of music fans.
It was just this explosion of r&abbs.
You had all the different types of people in the r&af community, from the hip hop fans to the hardcore r&ads, the hardcore hip hop, the hip-hoppers, the R&ab and everything else.”
Women rappers in the US have the ability to leverage their unique brand of creativity and r&ap music to make a living.
They also have the potential to make millions of dollars in the music business and have a strong fan base.
But, like many women, they face challenges.
Sorenson explained that the rise and fall of a female rapper in the industry can be hard on female fans, especially younger women.
“I don’t know how young they are, but a lot are just so frustrated that their voice is being ignored,” she said.
“The way we are represented in rap is that it’s just not as good as men.
So when a female artist has to go through that, it’s really tough for a lot.
When you see these young girls who are really just so vocal, it just makes it so much harder to get respect.”
So, what can female rappers do to help boost their careers?
Serendipity has helped women in the rap industry.
“In the past, a lot would just say, ‘Well, I don’t have a career,'” Soren said.
In the same way that artists who are on the road, or touring, have to find a way to support themselves financially, a female rap artist has been forced to find their own way to make ends meet.
As a result, female artists like Soren and her partner, artist Amanda Bynes, have developed a business plan that focuses on supporting their families.
Bynes, who recently launched her own label called SotLabs, says that a part-time gig is a way for her to keep her head above water financially.
On her Instagram account, she said: “This is the best job I’ve ever had.
I’m making more money than I did when I was 17, and I’m starting to realize that I don ‘t have to do anything right now.
I don’ t have to wear a dress or have a hairpiece on.
I just want to do this and have”
I feel like I’m just a kid.
