150 female rappers in France since Diam’s

Posted on
“There has been no female rapper since Diam’s.”

In France, everyone who loves hip hop has heard that before. We are almost in 2020 and one of the persistant stereotypes about female rappers is simply that they don’t exist.

It is true that Diam’s made a huge impact on the French rap scene due to her skills and popularity. She is one of the three female rappers who won gold records (more than 50,000 sales) in France: Keny Arkana with Tout tourne autour du soleil in 2012, Shay with Jolie Garce in 2016 and Diam’s herself with Brut de femme in 2005 (more than 100,000 sales at the time), which was also awarded the Victoire de la musique 2004 for the best rap/hip hop album of the year.

Obviously, this means a lot of pressure for the following rappers! However, since Diam’s, the number of female MCs has been constantly growing. You can tell by this selection of 150 female rappers active in France since Diam’s officially retired seven years ago.
