The 50 Best Rap Songs by Women

7. Lil Kim f/ Da Brat, Missy Elliott, Angie Martinez, & Left Eye "Ladies Night (Not Tonight Remix)" (1997)

Album: Nothing to Lose Soundtrack

The certified Platinum "Ladies Night (Not Tonight Remix)" became Lil Kim's third consecutive No. 1 hit on the rap charts, making Kim the first female rapper to achieve that trifecta. It was more than just a phenomenal posse cut, it defined the scene at the time with features from Hot 97's Angie Martinez, TLC's Left Eye, Da Brat, and Missy Elliott. Lil Kim got the entire gang of girls out for this hit, a remix to the original "Not Tonight" off Hard Core, a song that focuses on a female's desire to get oral sex instead of having sex. On "Ladies Night," the females brought it all together, at the peak of their careers, to show the power and success they'd achieved. —Lauren Nostro
