REASON #1: Nicki Minaj has left us all hungry to hear more female MCs.
We already know what a lot of you out there are going to say here: "Don't you dare put Nicki in the same sentence as Missy!" But we're going to do it anyway, because whether you like Nicki or not, it's clear that she's had a huge impact on the number of female rappers that are getting shine right now. A few years ago, we were seriously wondering whether or not there would be another great female rapper again. Now, it's not even a question anymore. Nicki's done big things. Younger acts like Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea are on the come-up. And it's clear that female rappers are on the rise again. That makes it a perfect time for Missy to make a comeback.
