First Female Rapper to Have No. 1 Album Since 1999

When her highly anticipated debut album Pink Friday was finally released in November 2010, it set a few more records. For starters, it 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. The project did however take the title of first rap album by a female to be named No. 1 in the country since Eve's 1999 debut Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryders First Lady.
