    Deadly Venoms, the female Wu-Tang Clan that sorta, kinda happened (two albums (1998 and 2000) both shelved and unreleased, third album finally released in 2002, but minus one of the original members):

    Love the "Tom's Diner" snippet a la Suzanne Vega (which was THE popular jam/sample back in the day):

    Always loved the production on this joint, which I used to bang ceaslessly when it first came out...

    I think it's interesting to note that so many female rappers only dropped one album and then more or less "disappeared".
    There were/are exceptions, of course (Yo-Yo, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Salt-N-Peppa, Jean Grae....) but for the most part the female MC has been a one-and-done proposition (in terms of albums released), which is a shame.

    I honestly think that female MCs have a much harder time breaking into the game than female rockers, pop stars, country singers, and jazz singers...

    Thanks dook for this thread. Here's an old but intense track with Mr Len, Slug, and Jean Grae (took me forever to find this track in my library because I thought it was an Atmosphere track). It turned me on to Jean.

    This is all kinda hilarious, if you ask me. In one of your earlier posts you claimed there was a track with Atmosphere and Bahamadia (https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...25#post5695725) and, believe it or not, I actually spent the better part of this morning scouring the Webz to find a track that Slug and Bahamadia had done together, but to no avail (because, as far as I can tell, they have never rapped on a track together...at least not one that has ever been released).

    Now you reveal that it was Jean Grae!!!

    C'mon, dood, she and Bahamadia sound nothing alike!!!

    Ha, my memory sucks sorry....that I sent you into a wormhole that wasn't necessary at all. These two posts are proof of how my mind (does not) work - often. It's frustrating - I know. And I don't even remember posting the first one about Bahamadia...and yes they don't sound anything alike! Yeesh.

    But I put Jean Grae as the best female to do it. Holding it down with Pharoahe and Royce.

    And Lyte dropped this classic in the midst of the single greatest year in the history of hip hop, with the same 808 beat that Audio 2 used for Top Billin'.

    S'all good, man.
    I got sucked down that wormhole on my own accord, if only because a friend of mine mentioned Little Simz in a FB post that I saw this morning, then I scoped her stuff out, which caused me to recall that I had started a thread about Femme Fatales of Rap, so I posted that link, which then caused me to revisit the thread to make sure nobody else had already mentioned Little Simz, whereupon I saw your earlier post about Bahamadia and Atmosphere, which then led to another wormhole vacation.
    I skied on Wednesday and Friday and went to the National Auto Museum yesterday, so a morning of Webz saturation was okay in my mind.

    So, Audio Two was Kirk Robinson (Milk Dee) and Nat Robinson (Gizmo). They were on the label First Priority Music, which was started by their father.

    Lyte was their childhood friend. Legend has it that when the elder Robinson entered into negotiations with Atlantic Records for a distribution deal, one of his major conditions was that Lyte would get a contract with Atlantic, as well. Funny how she went on to be more famous than his sons...
