Hip Hop Divas

It's time to stand up, take notice, and give props to the women who have made their mark on hip hop culture. Although superstars like Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, and TLC are some of the most popular entertainers in the world today-each having sold some 20 million albums apiece-the dramatic rise of women to the top of the hip hop industry has never been chronicled before. The revolution was decades in the making, with the female pioneers fighting for...

Women in Hip Hop

Women in hip hop get their due. This book covers a lot, but focuses on a chosen few. It is the only book of its kind that I am aware of. For anyone interested in getting a broad overview of mainstream (for the most part)women in hip hop I suggest purchasing this book. A must for any hip hop head because we all know that "The ladies run this mutha!"

I forgot about this book

I remember seeing this book in most of vibes magazines but i never thought about buying it until last year and yes i have to agree that faith evans should have been this book as well but saying that trina should have been been in the book is wrong the main reason why i bought the book is because i am a fan of females rapper & singers vibes should make another one with the unkown artists who never made it big (cha cha, mis toi and others) just name a few

Phenomenal Literature

The time has come for us to salute Hip Hop's hottest divas and groundbreaking female artists from the past 2 or 3 decades to present time. The depth of the life, trials, and experiences in the Hip Hop Music Industry lands in this book. From stunning photographs to hot articles and discographies, VIBE has done it very well. I recommend this book to all who have great interest in music. For those who aren't proficient in this aspect can still gain a lot of knowledge from this literature.

Talks about the new trendsetters in Hip-Hop

This book show how women were always part of Hip-Hop. It tells how they had to struggle against sexism, disrepect from their male peers and other obstacles. Mary J. Blige is the First Lady of Hip-Hop as shown by the cover of the book. This simply means that she is the preeminent woman in hip-hop. The other bio that the reader will find interesting are those of TLC, Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill, Lil' Kim, Foxy Brown, Eve, Erykah Badu, Missy Elliot, and Trina. The other bios that will interest the reader are the info on The Mercedes Ladies, Sha Rock, The Funky Sequence, The Real Roxanne, and Roxanne Shante. The book lacks vital info on Lisa Velez of Lisa-Lisa and Cult Jam , and Faith Evans. Overall this is a quality book. The title of my review is just stating my opinion that many of the artists in this book such as Mary and Lil' Kim will overshadow the men in the next 10 years.

about time!

Finally someone decided to chronicle the important strides women have made in hip hop! This is so beautiful, the kind of book I will save for my daughter. It's just cool to see everything put into perspective. The writers did a great job. I am a huge TLC fan and the chapter here is the best I've ever read on the women. I love the Roxanne Shante chapter too. She's the original hip hop diva and finally I learned about her after all these years. Thank you Vibe for making this book.
