UPDATE: Check out our 2014 Rising Female Rappers list now!

Female hip hop feels dominated by Nicki Minaj's larger-than-life personality and Azealia Banks' never-ending beefs, but don't get it twisted: there's way more going on.

We've searched across the globe for the lady MCs poised to own 2013. Some have major names backing them (like Lil' Kim protege Tiffany Foxx) while others have huge viral appeal (CL, rapper of K-pop group 2NE1, garnered over a million views of her debut single in less than 24 hours).

Get the 411 on the hottest rising lady rappers right here. Don't sleep on these fierce females!
