Peter Rosenberg's 25 Favorite Female Rap Songs

19. Da Brat “Give It 2 You” (1994)

Album: Funkdafied

Label: So So Def

Producer: Jermaine Dupri

Peter Rosenberg: “Da Brat was a pretty dope MC on the low. She was kind of poppy at times, but she was a pretty dope rapper. And [she was] the first female [solo] MC to ever go platinum. This video’s hot, not only because it’s a dope video, but because it starts out with her joint with Biggie ‘Da B Side.’ I thought about putting that on here, and ‘Funkdafied’ is a dope one, but ‘Give It 2 You’ is one that was hot at the time, but as time has gone on you’ll never really hear it in a throwback set. But she’s dope on it. It’s just a good tune, and she definitely deserves some recognition.”
