Rapstress-Turnt-Actress: 9 Amazing Female Rappers to Watch on Screen


The Comeback Kid: Lauryn Hill

After roles in “Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit” (1993) and  “Hav Plenty” (1997), Lauryn Hill seems to have abandoned acting to focus on music. Everyone is wondering when she will make her big music comeback, but people should also consider when she will return to the movies. With a presence much like Angela Bassett, but with more sassy style, there is plenty of room in the pantheon of black actresses for her brand. Maybe this rap goddess’ comeback will have that one-two punch, on both the acting and rapping fronts.
