Lola Monroe Talks About The State Of Rap Female
"Why is a female rapper has to have all of these elements and she is the only one who can have that place? Not so with the men."
DXHQ – Video-vixen-turned-rapper Lola Monroe recently stopped by #DXLive to guest host with Trent Clark & Jake Rohn. The three of them covered all over, from HipHopDX Year End Awards to the who holds the title of the greatest female MC ever.
The Platinum of the Life of the star says that the game is in a good place right now.
"I love the state of the female rap right now, because there is much more support, less cattiness and feels like that people are open to diversity and different female rappers coming in the game," said Monroe, who questioned the hypocrisy that prevents women from reaching the same heights as their male counterparts. "Why is a female rapper has to have all of these elements and she is the only one who can have that place? Not so with the men. The men have all these different rappers. You have the backpack rappers, the gangsta rap. Women are very diverse. There are different things that we like. You have to have space for all these female rappers to represent the different women in the world".
