When it comes to female rappers of the ’90s, Missy might’ve been the biggest, Lauryn Hill might’ve been the dopest, and Lil Kim might’ve been the baddest, but if we’re talkin’ albums sold, the conversation is not complete without mentioning Da Brat. In 1994, her debut album, Funkdafied, sold a milli, making this Chi-town spitta the first solo lady MC to go platinum, and the second overall female act to hit the million mark behind Salt N Pepa.
