God Save the Queens: The Essential History of Women in Hip-Hop

God Save the Queens: The Essential History of Women in Hip-Hop

Kathy Iandoli  (Author)
Can't Stop Won't Stop meets Girls to the Front in this essential and long overdue history of hip-hop's female pioneers and its enduring stars.

Every history of hip-hop previously published, from Jeff Chang's Can't Stop Won't Stop to Dan Charnas' The Big Payback to Shea Serrano's The Rap Yearbook, focuses exclusively on men, glaringly omitting a respectful and thorough examination of the presence and contribution of the genre's female artists.

For far too long, women in hip-hop have been relegated to the shadows, viewed as the designated "First Lady" thrown a contract, a pawn in some beef, or even worse. But as Kathy Iandoli makes clear, the reality is very different. Today, hip-hop is dominated by successful women such as Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, yet there are scores of female artists whose influence continues to resonate.

God Save the Queens pays tribute to the women of hip-hop-from the early work of Roxanne Shante, to hitmakers like Queen Latifah and Missy Elliot, to the superstars of today. Exploring issues of gender, money, sexuality, violence, body image, feuds, objectification and more, God Save the Queens is an important and monumental work of music journalism that at last gives these influential female artists the respect they have long deserved.
