HotNewHipHop looks at the women who remind us that rap is just a very, very small part of hip-hop culture.

"Rap is something you do, Hip-hop is something you live," legendary rapper KRS One professed in the song so fittingly titled "Hip Hop Vs. Rap." Through music, fashion, film, and even fitness, women like Vashtie, Shauna Harrison, DJ K Sly, and Leah McSweeney perfectly exemplify KRS One's statement. Not only do these women live hip-hop, they do and create super dope things that allow us to live and represent it as well. 

The women on this list aren't rappers. They are fashion designers, filmmakers, graffiti artists, DJs, and we even have a pretty awesome fitness instructor. These are HotNewHipHop's Bad Bitches, ten women who represent hip-hop either directly or indirectly.
