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 a place in the hip hop boy's club, confronting sexist attitudes, and grabbing their piece of the commercial pie while taking hip hop to new creative heights. NowVIBE, the preeminent hip hop magazine, celebrates this pop culture explosion with a book of thoughtful essays, stunning photographs, and informative timelines and sidebars. Some of the best writers on hip hop profile the grassroots efforts of hip hop's first ladies to the hottest stars of the moment. Emil Wilbekin, editor in chief ofVIBE, Mimi Valdés, Danyel Smith, dream hampton, Greg Tate, Sacha Jenkins, Harry Allen, Selwyn Hinds, Cristina Verán, and many others come together to reveal how these women continue to play a powerful and integral role in the hip hop world.
