Gigi Lamayne decided to remind some female rappers that they wouldn’t be anywhere if a man hadn't signed them in the first place.
With all the femicide and violence against women and children going down in SA, you would think females would be sticking together, not trying to tear one another apart.
Briefly.co.za learnt to Gigi went on some tangent, ousting female rappers who got signed by men on social media.
The hip-hop industry is a tough enough game as it is, and it is even harder for females. It ain’t easy to break into a male-dominated industry without a man backing you.

Gigi, Rouge, Moozlie, Boity, Nadia Nakai and Dee Koala are just a few of the female rappers who have managed to make a name for themselves in the Mzansi hip-hop game.
Speaking to Massive Metro, Gigi highlighted the fact that most female rappers who have so-called made it, have only done so at the hands of a man – without male backing, women are nothing in this game.
Gigi feels that this just proves that no matter how much we don’t want to admit it, women need men to succeed, especially in the hip-hop game.
“I have been rapping, @Rouge_Rapper has been rapping , @Nadia_nakai has been rapping but only after they got a co-sign from a male rapper people started paying more attention. Does this mean we need a co-sign from a male rapper in order to pop?”
