Description

Cant Stop Wont Stop meets Girls to the Front in this essential and long overdue history of hip-hops female pioneers and its enduring stars.Every history of hip-hop previously published, from Jeff Changs Cant Stop Wont Stop to Shea Serranos The Rap Yearbook, focuses primarily on men, glaringly omitting a thorough and respectful examination of the presence and contribution of the genres 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-hopfrom 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.
