Suga-T states : “The world of Hip-Hop has witnessed a remarkable transformation over the years, particularly for female artists. In the 90s, being a female rapper came with numerous challenges and obstacles that made it an uphill battle for some women to gain recognition and respect in a male-dominated industry. I was one that came in with respect because of being coached to be an executive and learning how to hold my own. I believe that I received my respect because I was surrounded by The Click: E40, D Shot and B Legit and people were looking for a female role model that didn’t take no s.h.i.t.t. , but yet still “Sprinkled Them With Some Game.”. I was not required to do things that I didn’t want at that time, however I did make some bad choices as a teen mom and inexperienced woman, along with less mature leadership in my space. However, as we step into 2023, we can celebrate the significant progress made in breaking down barriers and creating a more inclusive space for female rappers and to provide a second chance to those who had challenges along their journey. “VH1 Honored female rappers and the list included several Rappers as well as myself and Queen Latifah who assured me that my legacy was inclusive.” Suga-T states, “This is the time of WOMAN. I plan on continuing to represent the queendom and will not be stopping any time soon looking forward to servicing new and existing fans that celebrate the pioneers.”
