Fly Girls!

Soul Jazz just put out an amazing compilation titled "Fly Girls! B-Boys Beware: The Revenge of the Super Female Rappers". There's a lot of classic material on it, plus some newer (read: 90s) stuff that I haven't heard yet:
JJ Fad — Ya Goin' Down*
Princess MC — Pump Up The Funk
Tanya Winley — Vicious Rap
Sweet Tee — I Got Da Feelin'*
Nikki Giovanni — Ego Tripping
MC Lyte — Cha Cha Cha
Two Sisters — B-Boys Beware
Cookie Crew — Secrets of Success
Sequence — Simon Says*
Bahamadia — Paper Thin
Sparky D — I Can't Stop
Queen Latifah Featuring Monie Love — Ladies First
Lady B — To The Beat Y'All
Camille Yarbrough — Take Yo' Praise
Missy Elliot — The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)*
Dimples D — Sucker DJ
She Rockers — Give It A Rest
Sarah Webster Fabio — Glimpses
The Kryptic Krew featuring Tina B — Jazzy Sensation*
Roxanne Shanté — Bite This

I won't give you any download links for this ... you can do a google search if you must, or you could also spend a few bucks and get the whole package with extensive liner notes and whatnot.

While you're waiting for the LPs or CDs to arrive you can pass the time with a little compilation I put together for you. This is by no means a competing effort ... I just threw in a few of my favorite female fronted hip hop tunes that I felt were missing on the Soul Jazz album. Enjoy!

01. L'Trimm - Cars with the Boom
02. JJ Fad - Supersonic
03. Anquette - Shake it, do the 61st
04. Bonnie & Clyde feat. Terminator X - Homey don't play dat *
05. Roxanne Shanté - Roxanne's Revenge
06. The Real Roxanne feat. Hitman Howie Tee - Bang Zoom
07. MC Lyte - Lyte as a Rock
08. Leonie J & Sweet Tee feat. Davy DMX - The DMX will rock *
09. Sexy Lady feat. MC Chief - Beef Box *
10. Chilltown - Rock the Beat
11. Sha Rock, Lisa Lee & Debbie Dee - Us Girls *
