From London’s Soul Jazz label comes a double album history of female rappers back to 1979.
This double album is only £12 – not much to pay for an education. Nice to see some well-known favs like UKs short lived Cookie Crew here but much more valuable to be told about liberation fighters and precusors of rap like….
the poet Nikki Giovanni’s whose ‘Ego Tripping’ from 1971 is included. According to the blurb in relation to her admiration for Tupac Shakur, she would ‘rather be with the thugs than the people complaining about them’.
