When it comes to female rap, MC Lyte is hands down probably the most respected artist.During an interview with VH1, she spoke on Nicki Minaj and her current takeover female rap game. She also explained why the artists that are coming at Nicki are not the ones who should be worried…

Those which really need to be worried of Nicki’s record is Fergie, Gwen Stefani, Nelly Furtado.

Nicki is coming out to win. She’s not thinking of the block. She’s not just thinking of the city. So she’s able to handle so many areas of what it takes right now to be an international star.

So hats off to everybody that’s doing it but, I see the vision that Nicki sees for herself that people probably didn’t see before. You cannot tell me that any female emcee listening to either one of Kim or Minaj don’t want to spit a verse themselves because it’s that competitive nature that hip-hop brings to the community.

So, it’s the art. People love to do it.

At least there is no hate.
