Nikki D: The Tough Road, The Tough Love And Female Empowerment in Hip-Hop

Nikki D, the pioneering MC, talks to us about her-story, thoughts on today’s rap and more. We’re talking Russell Simmons, Ice-T, Lyor Cohen, Queen Latifah, Tupac and more!

Nikki D stepped onto the Hip-Hop scene and left an indelible mark at a time when there were very few female spitters out. While her name may not resonate as loudly as some of her contemporaries, Nikki D’s ability to break through with a combination of brute force and social savvy has paved a way for scores of young talents. But, that question is: do they know?


Recently, Nikki D made headlines after ranting about “the prostitution era” in Hip-Hop, talking directly about numerous women in popular Hip-Hop. The response was mixed. One thing that cannot be debated is that the New Jersey native helped kick down a door without the benefit of a co-sign. In the late 80s and early 90s, rap was predominantly a male-dominated industry. Her mere presence challenged the status quo and helped break down gender barriers. She was the very first woman signed to iconic Def Jam Records.

One of Nikki D’s defining moments was her 1990 hit single, “Daddy’s Little Girl.” The song was more than just a hit; it carried a powerful message of empowerment and self-respect. The album of the same name failed to do big numbers for several reasons, outlined in our interview. But her efforts were not in vain. Nikki D’s pioneering contributions laid a foundation for subsequent generations of female artists. MC Lyte and Queen Latifah, her peers in rap, demonstrated that women could thrive and excel in Hip-Hop. Her legacy lives on in the countless female MCs who have followed in her footsteps.
