Move over Nicki Minaj, because there’s another Nikki on the scene--Nikki Lynette. The latter's song, “Shut The F*ck Up Boy,” might have the best chorus ever, and is currently being played on repeat here at the BUST HQ.
Lynette’s got serious mc chops, a slight Left Eye vibe, and a dash of afro-punk style. We think she's a pure original, and a must-watch.
Check the video out below and then go download her new mixtape, Roses N’ Guns 2: The BADDER ASSED Mixtape That Rocks (The Rematch). Read More

Even a casual hip-hop fan can quote lyrics from Missy Elliott, TLC, and Salt-N-Pepa, but SHEmovement aims to celebrate not just the heavy-hitters, but less well-known lady mc's like Psalm One, Red Shaydez, Hot Yella, Miz Korona, and Lady Loe.
The website features hip-hop-centric news and profiles of female rappers, as well as photos, videos, and blogs that the artists themselves update. The musicians on the site produce blends of hip-hop as diverse as they are--white, black and middle eastern mc's are all represented. Read More

Can't get enough of hip hop? Neither can I, but of course, we as ladies, cant help but to notice that "the game" is dominated by mostly men.

But those are just some of the names that have been shining in the spotlight. Is lesser known hip hop more your scene? Searching for that sparkly diamond in the rough of the underground? Well, look no further. Read More

It’s never been confirmed, but Nicki Minaj’s debut album Pink Friday sounds like a reference to the film Mean Girls, where the Plastics wore pink every Friday (maybe it was Wednesday). One may have nothing to do with the other, but on Nicki’s first album, she has a perfect balance of both mean and girly. While female rappers have spent decades swimming the mainstream in the hopes of never drowning, Nicki Minaj may have discovered the only working life raft. Read More
