A$AP Rocky has respect for some of the illest women in hip-hop like Young M.A and Rico Nasty.

During his interview with Angie Martinez on Wednesday (Jan. 16), the leader of the A$AP Mob discussed a few of the artists that will be showing up to the fourth annual Yams Day in Brooklyn. After mentioning Ski Mask The Slump God and Chief Keef would be in the building, the "Tony Tone" rapper revealed that Young M.A would also be performing. Once Angie gets hype about the "Ooouuu" rapper's scheduled appearance, Rocky confessed that he thinks M.A and Rico Nasty are some of the illest female rappers in the game.

"Shout out to Young M.A.," Rocky told Angie. "I love her too. She's one of the illest female rappers. OD. I Love her style it's just ... and you know who else I like? You ever heard of this chick Rico Nasty? You gotta check her out she's fire."

After he puts the Power 105.1 show host onto Nasty, Rocky explains why he's down for both rappers' style in the recording booth. He appreciates the way they market themselves without what he feels like is being overly sexual.

"What I like about Rico Nasty and what I like about Young M.A is like usually when you looking at a female from a sexist perspective in rap, you either want to rag them or be attracted to them," Rocky said. "I think with Rico Nasty and Young M.A they can get you moving. It doesn't matter if you're male or female."
