When I think of feminism and Hip Hop this is the first song that comes to mind. Salt-N-Pepa came into the rap game when no women were getting respect as emcees. Came strutting in heels and spandex and slayed the game. Respect their gangsta.
Great Goddess Femcee, pioneering hip-hop feminist Yolanda “Yo-Yo” Whitaker (August 4, 1971). She’s one of my favorite femcees of all times and her Black Woman/Girl Empowerment song “Black Pearl”(1992) is one of my favorites. That song was sooo underrated. Click here or scroll down to see video.
