Rapper Remy Ma is a champion of female rap artists and has coordinated rap battles featuring women rappers.  She told radio/TV personality in an EURExclusive last year:

“I feel like a lot of women rappers, they’ve been doing this for years, but they’ve never really got compensated for their work like the males.  And as a woman of color, I know how we always gotta work a little bit harder. We always gotta do a little bit more to even feel like we’re getting equal treatment. “
