First Female Rapper to Have a No. 1 Album Since 1999

When Nicki's highly anticipated debut album Pink Friday was finally released in November 2010, it took the title of first rap album by a female to be No. 1 in the country since Eve's 1999 debut Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryders First Lady. It also sold 375,000 copies in its first week, which was nearly the most an album from a female rapper has ever sold, coming in second to Lauryn Hill's 1998 classic The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
