  10. Kisses August 16, 2011

    Yessss, MIssy! 🙂

  11. vicious vixen August 16, 2011

    Love Missy… BUT I have to disagree w/ the results. Tbh she was early 2000s version of Nicki (just more talented, creative & innovative)… Just like Noreaga & Master P were todays equivalent of Waka & Soulja Boy. And ya’ll can call me what you want but it’s my opinion & if you were a real hip hop head you’d see where I was coming from. She’s DEFINATELY a TALENTED songwriter, but as far as being the Queen of Rap… Not so much.

  12. girl you know nicki the queen August 16, 2011

    Oh please who voted? A whole bunch of old ass 1970s babies???? Nicki and lauren hill are the queens hands down y’all are such losers missy is fat and her rap career is over the last album flopped

  13. girl you know nicki the queen August 16, 2011

    Omg vicious vixen how can you compare master p to soulja boy or wacka???? Your crazy!!! Masterp p had an empire he was richer than puff daddy in the 1990s he had tv shows movies. He had 12 hit albums! I’m soo shocked you said that stop smoking that stuff kids or you’ll end up like this h** vixen

  14. girl you know nicki the queen August 16, 2011

    Lmao at jayla and dapo yeah behind the music helped missy and 27000 vtes?? This little broke as site please!!!! That’s not even a lot of people lmao missy nor the real queen nicki will. Even see this dumb shiitt

  15. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 16, 2011

    I like her a lot and she was very innovative.I’m not into her flow, but her lyrics, the beats and the visuals were ALWAYS on point.She was definetely groundbreaking and she is the only rapper who had any impact on pop culture (slight, yet still an impact).She was the 1st female rapper to make it to mainstream.She even performed with Madonna, Brit and Christina in the VMA’s.However, the title ‘queen’ seems a little too heavy.

    @VICIOUS VIXEN With all due respect, I think you may be underestimating her a bit.Missy was original, Nicky isn’t.Missy could rap ON HER ALBUMS, not just on her pre-fame mixtapres, Nicki can’t.Missy had stage presence, Nicki doesn’t.

  16. Live, Love, Party August 16, 2011

    Haha. And the kim stans thought kim was gonna win. Missy won!

  17. Cheerful Cynic August 16, 2011

    Obviously

  18. Live, Love, Party August 16, 2011

    People forgetting nicki use to be a beast on her mixtapes before she got mainstream. She wasn’t like she is now. She could rap. She just wanted to try something different. Well, everyone has their opinions about nicki. I’m not finna argue about dumb stuff anymore.

  19. KERI HILSON IS BADDDDDDDD AND SHES A THREAT TO UR FAV August 16, 2011

    NICKI MINAJ IS A LIL KIM CLONE CLOWN

  20. Bouncy Baby! August 16, 2011

    yess love her.

    can we have two queens? i love lauryn hill also. lol.

  21. Auntie Jackie August 16, 2011

    @ Live, Love, Party

    I’ve heard those mixtapes…I wouldn’t say she was consistently good. And the thing is, Missy was in the mainstream without watering down her lyrics or saying silly s*** divorced of any real meaning. Nicki Minaj is trying to be the queen of pop, not the queen of rap.

  22. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

    of course… Missy Wins i love missy and she deserves this.
    BUT of course this website will throw shade to lil kim its all good….. it was expected. you fixed the polls from the start. Missy’s photo was the initial photo so not suprised she won.
    LIL KIM is the greatest female rapper of all time, voted by the public on a 2 month poll on a hip-hop website and radio station so this website holds no value … missy and kim were the last chicks standing on the poll which goes to show Missy n Kim share the crown. Missy brought HER THING to the rap game so did Kim.
    AND MISSY DID talk s** in her songs so once again stop basing LIL KIM for the very same things your favorite artists are doing now. over and out. Congrats missy! u deserve it.
    Lil Kim & Missy Elliott are the QUEEN OF HIP HOP & RAP. no1 else is. and no1 else will be. DEUCES

  23. NICK August 16, 2011

    Yeah MISSY is the best, she slays! BUT NICKI & HER WOULD HAVE SO MUCH FUN 2gether!!!!!

  24. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

    haters have a seat with your ” yesss missy! yesss” ur just happy because kim didnt win.. i bet if kreashawn won u’d be doing backflips.
    so many haters these days.
    “I dont know why the pick on me, but when your the REALEST and UPFRONT, which is who i am, people will target you the most, and i guess i have to pay the price” – Lil Kim
    oh and heres a video showing how kim changed the female rap game

  25. DASTARKIDD August 16, 2011

    YES JUST LIKE I PREDICTED! THIS IS THE TRUTH AND IM DEFINITELY NOT A 70’S BABY @GIRLYOUKNOWNICKITHEQUEEN ITS JUST FACTS NICKI STILL HASN’T DONE ENOUGH BUT MAYBE ONE DAY SHE WILL BE A QUEEN WHO KNOWS SHE COULD BE THE NEW QUEEN OF POP HIP HOP LIKE MARY J IS THE QUEEN OF HIP HOP SOUL #JUSTSAYING

  26. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

    @DASTARKIDD
    NICKI JUST CAME OUT???? just because shes relevant and people dickride her does not make her the queen of hip hop.
    so is Michael Jackson the King Of Pop because he was relevant??? surely it was for what hes done for MUSIC. aswell as FASHION.

  27. Frunat August 16, 2011

    love missy elliot..she is really creative..love her..

  28. Anon August 16, 2011

    YAY MISSY!!!!!! No one more deserving in my opinion 🙂

  29. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

    Lil Kim – BackStabbers ( proves kim does not ONLY rap about s**)

  30. YEABEY WON’T DANCE FOR U August 16, 2011

    Didn’t I tell y’all??

    MISSY>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>EVERYONE ELSE!!!

  31. YEABEY WON’T DANCE FOR U August 16, 2011

    DEAD AT THE NICKI STANS GOING OFF ON TGJ BECAUSE MISSY WON

    BEST BELIEVE IF NICKI WON THIS S*** WE WOULD NOT HEAR THE END OF IT…

    MISSY WON. END OF!!!

  32. Yellow Gorillah August 16, 2011

    YAAAAAAAS This is nothing but The TRUTH!

  33. S*** August 16, 2011

    The QOP Title was RIGGED incase yall didnt know because It WASNT the TGJ Fans that Voted!, It was the BRITNEY FANS Spreading the Word as I suspected!!

    TGJ needs to acknowledge that & Give the QOP Title back to the REAL Owner: BEYONCE!!

    *BLAST LOVE ON TOP* 🙂

  34. The Naked Truth August 16, 2011

    Congrats to MISSY!!!

    Still think SAMANTHA and ThatHateJuice Fixed the polls JUST a little though….

    That’s why this HATING ass site will never prosper!

  35. RHI RHI IS QUEEN August 16, 2011

    SHE IS A SINGER FOR THE MOST PART.. FUNNY HOW “SOCK IT TO ME” WAS POSTED AS A REFERENCE FOR FEMALE HIP HOP YET SHE SINGS THE ENTIRE SONG SMH. FOXY ALL DAY, THEM OTHA BIRDS CAN FLY AWAY

  36. popeater August 16, 2011

    No doubt Missy was/is an innovator when it comes to music and sound, but she’s not the best lyricist. Even she said this herself. She is more concerned with the hook, then the actual lyrics of the song.

  37. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

    AND DID YOU KNOW THIS VIDEO HAS LIL KIM IN IT.
    u know missy and the other robo girl with her is LIL KIM!
    bet u didnt know that did u HATERS.
    like i said
    LIL KIM + MISSY ARE THE QUEEN OF HIP HOP/RAP

  38. LOL August 16, 2011

    LOL at the pressed bey stan STILL mad about Britney winning queen of pop! You that upset that u had to go to a different post and whine about bey losing?? Sad….anywho YAY MISSY!!

  39. Z1 August 16, 2011

    YEABEY WON’T DANCE FOR U lying b**** you are just mad because kim didn;t win so stop passing it off o n nicki fans taking about they are mad because nicki didn’t win,lying b!ch ni nicki fan would even diss miss,so stopp spreading lies you and that press malibu barbie press rabid b!tches…..so sad so set of depress b!tches.

  40. Dave August 16, 2011

    Missy deserves that title. Nobody should even be mad. Missy was HIP HOP & Crossover w/o being too pop! Missy raps, sings, produces, dances, writes her own shits, has creative & revolutionary video ideas whether purely alone or collectively with her team. Plus, Missy is very humble with her talents, & she helps out a lot of other artist like Monica & Jazmine Sullivan. Missy is the truth. Missy can flo, don’t get it twisted. She not super hardcore, but she has her own unique flo.

  41. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

    @z1
    SO F****** WHAT???? go and sit down

  42. isabella! August 16, 2011

    yes go missy, nicki needs to take note from missy. i love nicki and all but i wish she would do some actually hip hop save pop music for singers.

  43. PYTFROMAL August 16, 2011

    Hmmm, I would lean more towards Lauryn but Missy would be 2nd. Glad it was Nicki. I would have lost all hope in humanity.

  44. PYTFROMAL August 16, 2011

    I mean glad it WASN’T Nicki.

  45. kim shits on sicki garbarj tgj.com stay pressed on kim ! o o p ! August 16, 2011

    Thank God It wasnt NICKI Clown ass but Missy, Lauryn, Kim & Remy Are The Queens & ORIGINATORS ! What Nicki Is Trying To BE !!!!

  46. Jane Doe August 16, 2011

    @Malibu Barbie, thank you again for the info. These “kiddies” have to be schooled on female hip hop. Congrats to Missy, she is the innovator in this game. Rolling Stones put that fake plastic Kim Clone on the ” Kings of hip hop” list. They are so pressed, I know Baby & Slim paid for her to be on that list. They pay for her to be on everything. This b**** is a JOKE to female hip hop. *throws a bottle at her*

  47. Jane Doe August 16, 2011

    That clone does not deserve any kind of title until she can stop lying, lip synching, being fake, & again stop f****** lying. *oops that will never happen*. She must also be ORIGINAL. * oops that will never happen either*

  48. vicious vixen August 16, 2011

    @girl you know nicki the queen

    Omg vicious vixen how can you compare master p to soulja boy or wacka???? Your crazy!!! Masterp p had an empire he was richer than puff daddy in the 1990s he had tv shows movies. He had 12 hit albums! I’m soo shocked you said that stop smoking that stuff kids or you’ll end up like this h** vixen
    _______________

    Regardless of HOW MUCH money Master P had, his flow was STILL garbage as HELL! “Make em say uuuuhhh na na na na”… Wtf is THAT s***? He had the absolute WORSE flow on that song w him, Canibus, LL, DMX, etc. CLEARLY your dumbass needs to quit smoking and put your reading comprehension to work bc I wasn’t speaking of empires I was speaking on LYRICAL SKILL. So by your logic bc Birdman has money he can rhyme? Gtfoh, get your thoughts together & THEN come back at me!

    @ASAP

    @VICIOUS VIXEN With all due respect, I think you may be underestimating her a bit.Missy was original, Nicky isn’t.Missy could rap ON HER ALBUMS, not just on her pre-fame mixtapres, Nicki can’t.Missy had stage presence, Nicki doesn’t.

    ___________

    I’m definately not underestimating her, or taking anything from her. I actually like her. And I stated earlier she’s UBER talented, creative & innovative. The point that I was trying to make was that her strength is her songwriting, singing, etc (where she is SUPER unique, creative & innovative). While, like someone stated earlier, her lyrics (in rap) weren’t THE best out there. She was more commercial rap, not necessarily true Hip Hop (like I would consider Kim, Remy Ma, Lauryn Hill, Jean Grey, Rah Digga, etc.) imo (like Nicki, which is where the comparison ends). Hopefully that cleared up what I was trying to say. 🙂

  49. trulo August 16, 2011

    bigs up to Missy for winning this poll and lil kim for winning the GOAT poll ….. no doubt these two woman changed hip hop.

  50. trulo August 16, 2011

    and one more thing… the song ” work it” by missy…. did yall not think that song wasnt about s**. maybe yall need to re-read and listen to the lyrics!! lmao dont be trying to shade other female rappers cause they have s** in thier lyrics.. missy does the same thing.. only different is she dosent over sexualize it.

  51. trulo August 16, 2011

    @vicious vixen i feel what u saying.. but honestly lauren hill shouldnt be in that category……. lauren gave us ONE studio album… that was NEO-SOUL not RAP. lol honestly i think lauren hill is def. over rated in hip hop… her genre is NEO-SOUL… she belongs in the same category with erka badu.. jill scott… etc etc.

  52. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

    @JANEDOE
    you are very welcome =)

  53. swagg August 16, 2011

    congrats miss..how can anybody call nicki a queen if u like her music then so be it but we aint even know this b**** for 5years yet she cant be crowned no damn queen yet

  54. vicious vixen August 16, 2011

    @trulo

    I wouldn’t necessarily consider that Neo-Soul though… I’m just saying that even though Lauryn’s career was short lived she made a HUGE impact in the Hip Hop community. Also let’s not forget that before she went solo, she was SLAYING with the Fugees. She really was a Lyrical Beast! And even if we say that her solo career wasn’t considered Hip Hop I still think that other female rappers “out rap” Missy. And believe me… I like Missy! I just think Queen of Hip Hop is a stretch for her.

  55. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

  56. Malibu Barbie August 16, 2011

    @viciousvixen
    Missy + Tim produce, they changed R&B basically when they did Aaliyah’s 2nd album they completely switched it up,both of them were go to guys for they HOTTEST RECORDS.
    Not to mention Missy as a WRITER.
    Missy’s video treatments , missy deserves that crown 100% shes done MAJOR THINGS for hip hop.
    Aswell as LIL KIM.
    Lil Kim + Missy are the QUEEN OF HIP HOP/RAP
    Lauryn did her thing but Missy and Kim are part of pop culture and are the reasons Nicki Minaj has a SPOT in this game right now.

  57. nice_gurl August 16, 2011

    I wanted it either to be Lauryn, Missy or Lil Kim. These TGJ polls are irrelevant though.

  58. YEABEY WON’T DANCE 4 U August 17, 2011

    @Z1
    WOW!! DUMBASS

    I prefer Lil Kim to Nicki….YES
    But I’m a MAJOR FAN OF MISSY OVER EVERYONE ELSE…

    You just mad cause Nicki aint win

    Cheers! GRUNT to that!

  59. SHESDUMB THE SLAYER OF KELLYMOTIVATION AKA DANCE August 17, 2011

    UNLIKE THE OTHER POLLS………
    I ACTUALLY AM COMFORTABLE WITH THE RESULTS, AND WILL HAVE TO AGREE.

  60. Paulo August 17, 2011

    this poll was just a chance for the anti-Nicki crowd to show up… Missy is epic but how y’all gon name her a better lyricist than Ms Lauryn Hill? actually, how you gon put Lil’ Chucky’s Daughter above her? LMAO soooo biased…

  61. swagg August 17, 2011

    @ Paulo sorry but Lauren only had one major hit album yea it was a huge album but Missy and Kim have plenty of albums videos and matieral that we saw for 10 years plus because they was dropping stuff 10 years after their debut ….i mean even if nicki sold 7, 8 times platinum that would be hot for her this day and age but if she comes out and flops each time after that she wouldnt be viewed as to much of a legendary force just like lauren

  62. The King August 17, 2011

    Homosexual men declaring Missy Elliot The Queen Of Hip Hop is about right being that most of them don’t know anything about it nor listen to it…just to think…half of the time Missy just say’s random s*** in her lyric’s and these people voted her Queen Of Hip Hop…not Rap but Hip Hop…LMAO!!!!…And no…Nicki Minaj is not Hip Hop…LMAO!!!!

  63. Ttruth Teller August 17, 2011

    We all knew who really won and that’s Kim!

    the polls were fixed and Kim was winning by a landslide.

    GJ, cheating isn’t gonna change reality.

  64. Queen Nicki August 17, 2011

    She is the only female rapper: touring, topping Billboard, selling records and performing at award shows. Nicki is everywhere. 2011 is hers.

  65. Willl August 26, 2011

    I am obsessed with Nicki…but if anyone deserved it overher, it is DEF Missy elliot. No wonder i love her and Nicki, they are very much alike. Even though Missy is obviously the better rapper.
