The 50 Best Rap Songs by Women

36. Remy Ma "Conceited" (2006)

Album: There's Something About Remy: Based on a True Story

Remy Ma's "Conceited" is the hip-hop version of Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy," with lyrics like, "I look too good to be wearing this" in place of, "I'm too sexy for my shirt." The song's flute gives it a Middle Eastern flavor, but the beat is still so obviously Scott Storch you smell a faint whiff of cocaina in the air (but let it go because he might give you a Bentley if you like him enough). Remy is all attitude on the mic, likely a byproduct of growing up in the Boogie Down. Beyond the admitted arrogance about her appearance, her flow is tight and precise—always dragging her vocals to the right note. That skill must be what gives her the confidence to spit rhymes line, "Okay I got a little fat/My shorty told me that he like it like that." Oh Remy, it's just more of you to love. —Insanul Ahmed
