When Tupac raps “ain’t a woman alive that could take my mama’s place,” there are indeed many rappers that can solemnly agree to that statement. As quite a few rappers were raised with absent fathers, it’s a wonder how these women were able to make due. In rhymes, many MCs often relive their stories of struggle, reflecting on the hardship endured by their mothers. With that said, it’s only right to give them their just due. Take a look at the rappers raised by these inspirational women.
