Nitty Scott MC
Pros: Smooth flow, positive vibes-a female MC who doesn't rap exactly like Nicki Minaj.
Cons: Hasn't developed songwriting skills, lacks memorable lines.
Essential Listening: Doobies x Popsicle Sticks
You might remember Nitty Scott from last year's BET Cyphers where she spit respectable-if not particularly remarkable-rhymes alongside industry heavyweights. It's never been easy for females to break out in hip-hop (especially when they're more Jean Grae than Lil Kim) but the artist formerly known as Lady Hardbody seems more determined than the average MC. She seems more interested in making a living than being the biggest star in the world, which is fine by us since the half black/half Puerto Rican MC has more bars than most.
