June marks the halfway mark of the year, and it also kicks off the summer. Thus far, 2019 has been the year of different sounds. From Lil Nas X hitting the charts hard with his country-rap, to newcomer DaBaby bringing his North Carolina sound to the mainstream- we have had some HITS this year. The ladies of hip-hop also have the clubs, cars and streets rocking. I mean- do you know any girl who hasn’t been screaming, “Real a*s b**ch, give a f*ck about a n*gga?”
