Bring back the Grammy Award for Best Female Rap Solo Performance!

This petition had 84 supporters

I want to bring back the Grammy Award for 'Best Female Rap Solo Performance'. The last year this award was given out was in 2004. Since then, there have been plenty of great female rappers who have debuted. The highest female rapper of all time. A female rappe who is also the female artist with the most chart entries on Billboard Hot 100. Multiple female rappers from different races. Multiple female rappers from all over the world.

In 2017 we now have ALOT of female rappers who deserve the opportunity to win a Grammy in their field. The men get to win Grammys so these females who had to fight 1000x harder should have this opportunity also.

It is NOT fair to these female rappers who break more records, sale more records, and have more accomplishments then these male rappers but do not get the recognition from the Grammys. 

Here are just a few of the female rappers who have released music in 2017 : 

Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott, Iggy Azalea, Cardi B, Remy Ma, Kashdoll, Foxy Brown, Trina, Azealia Banks, Young M.A, Cupcakke, Angel Haze, Etc. This list can go on forever!

Please Grammy, show these female rappers that their work does not go unnoticed. Show these female rappers that there is equality in the Grammys. Show these female rappers that they work just as hard as these male rappers and it will pay off.


thank you!
