The femme emcee lyrical playlist you need
Rap is an art form that has been around longer than most music and the Kenyan music scene isn’t short of amazing rappers and the drama that comes with it.

Here are 10 femme emcees you should put on your rap playlist.
You have to respect Nazizi for being among the first and still keeping it fresh after all these years.
Stella Mwangi aka STL
Another one of the OGs.
Muthoni the Drummer Queen (MDQ)
A true artist whose music is a lyrical call to action.
Every Fena song is a good vibe.
She’s the Kenyan Lauryn Hill if there ever was one. Still into that 90’s hip-hop vibe? Xtatic’s your girl. We recommend you also listen to Khali Cartel 2 in which she features because she absolutely killed it.
I’ve never seen a woman so unafraid of being so “lethal”.
Probably the youngest on this list, she is 21 as of four days ago but her lyrics still packs a punch.
A songwriter, a singer and an amazing rapper. She’s just as good as the day she dropped her debut mixtape Consume – Chakula ya Soul
You’ve all heard “Utawezana” but you most likely didn’t know that the rapper who made it was Femi One.
Have you ever heard someone rap in the Meru language?
