This is an unexpected twist in the Last Dayz of 2013: being called out by that lad with the often-noted bizarre fetish for Female Rappers™ who writes for such bastions of quality Rap journalism as The Guardian and FACT Magazine. Being that this is the season of goodwill, it's possible to forgive Alex MacPherson for his rather pitiful coverage of modern Rap music in The Guardian even though he's the paper's token ‘urban expert’, and one can even let it slide that MaxPhearson appears to be unfamiliar with this website's stripes in the Rap feminism wars (breaking Katie Got Bandz to the world and causing Das Rapist to break up; highlighting the hypocrisy of fake thinkpiece-feminist careerists like Brendan Soderberg and Kitty Pryde), but unless MacPearson can provide any evidence to the contrary, then Katie Got Bandz was the only Female Rapper™ who released any great music over the past 12 months, bar the guest spots from Trina on Wowzers, Kreayshawn on Pu$$y Magnet, Princess on Call It Like You Want It (an omission from my year end list, tbf) and Nicki Minaj on the otherwise abominable Freaks.
I don't think that's an unreasonable stance to take: Lady and Nicki didn't drop any new songs this year; Gangsta Boo released an ill-advised mixtape of Eternal Sunshine of the European "EDM" producer-Rap which unfortunately had more in common with M.I.A than Mia X; None of Sasha Go Hard's 2013 songs clicked for me and I'm assuming they mustn't have clicked for anyone else either since Sasha ended the year relegated to the Cloud-Rap scrapheap recording tracks with Tumblr flotsam & jetsam like Ryan Hemsworth and Kitty Pryde; Eve was decent over top dollar production in her Ruff Ryders heyday but I'm not really checking for her 13 years later in the same way that I'm not listening to any new music by DMX or Drag-On; LadyKilla by Cocc Pistol Cee was an aiight album deep cut on DJ Mustard's Ketchup but certainly not list-worthy; Lauryn Hill now makes music which sounds like something off Conspiracy SBU's MySpace page; Azelia Banks is on some Rap Game Kelly Brook type shit the way she's a deplorable hack at her profession who's loathed by women and only kept in business by wanking teenage lads; Iggy Azalea is an Australian with a fucking A$AP Rocky tattoo who clearly never received the memo that states Marmaloid is the only Sheila with a Rap pass; Lil' Kim's B.E.T cypher freestyle revealed she's undergone the most bizarre voice transformation since Shyne because she now sounds like J-Zone's alter-ego Chief Chinchilla, which doesn't particularly bode well for any new music from her in 2014; if you're a grown man who's ever sat through a full song by Boosie's rapping pre-teen daughter then you're another Ian Watkins in-waiting, imho; and Angel Haze makes terrible performance art alt-Rap for broadsheet journalists with double-barreled names, gender politics students, and other assorted demographics of mollycoddled posh people who'd turn their noses up at Pussy.
Naturally, Brendan Soderberg also chimed in on the matter by peddling his usual "HEY GIRLS, I'M NOT LIKE THESE OTHER ICKY-WICKY-STICKY-PRICKY GUYS!" blowhard routine in the vain hope some naive 21 year old writing major from Nebraska who's just moved to D.C will buy into his faux-Captain Save-A-Girl's-Feelings shtick and travel to Baltimore to have sympathy-sex with him. Das Rapist's BFF Soderberg is such a brain dead stoner troglodyte that he's probably already forgotten he broke kayfabe a couple of months back by flipping from Duckie into Steff the moment Katherine St. Asaph exposed him as a lying sack of shit and then spent the next 48 hours bullying her on Twitter and the ILX message board as she repeatedly begged him to leave her alone. Evidently, Soderberg views women's feelings as little more than an instrument to be brought into use when writing
