12.49: 50 Years of Hip-Hop: Ladies First
Happy Hip-Hop-iversary! Geek Girl Soup is celebrating women in hip-hop with “Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop” (Netflix).
This fabulous docuseries delves deep into the history of the impact women have made in hip-hop. We look back at power of Roxane Shanté, MC Lyte, and Queen Latifah. We examine the backlash at Sister Souljah. We discuss the new wave of ladies with Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, and Chika. So many more awesome ladies in the doc, too!
Do check it out!
Next week: We’re going back to the future, which is now in the past! Since we’ve watched the source material more times than we can count, we’re watching a couple of documentaries: “Back in Time” (Peacock) and “Expedition Back to the Future” (YouTube).
