Queens Get The Money: Ms. Hustle

Queens Get The Money: Ms. Hustle

Ms. Hustle, “the First Lady of URL,” got her title from being literally the first lady to ever battle on Ultimate Rap League.

Hustle was a cypher rapper with many connections to the NYC rap scene, and she and Queen of the Ring battler E-Hart made hip-hop history as the two females to battle on an otherwise all-male card.

She’s known for her delivery, bar-heavy aggression, booming voice, actually good gun bars, and the fact that arguably half the “Top Ten Best Female Battles” have her in them. Hustle is notorious, but she is
undeniably at the top of her tier, demonstrated by the fact that she is in so many classics: when girls come up against her, they have to come full-force.

She battles the top girls at the top of their game, but has still yet to get bodied, and RapGrid’s 2014 ranking of female battlers has her at #1.

Ms. Fit has never been better than she was in her classic Hustle battle. QOTR ushered the inter-gender battle into the limelight when O-Red battled her as a main event, and this was before men battling women was a common thing.

Ms. Hustle versus Gattas at URL’s NOME4 was the battle of the night, not to mention one of the best female battles ever, and one of the best battles seen on URL’s stage.
