🎤 Earlier this year, BBC Music published a list of the best hip-hop songs of all time. For Datawrapper’s weekly chart series I took a closer look at the data behind it. Here are a couple of things I learned. https://blog.datawrapper.de/best-hip-hop-songs-of-all-time-visualized/
Very few women made it onto the best-of list. The top 25 has only two songs by female MC’s (Queen Latifah and Lauryn Hill). That's less than it has songs featuring OutKast.
To celebrate female voices in hip-hop, I used the BBC Music poll data to create an alternative best-of: The best hip-hop songs of all time, but featuring women. It’s also on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7oJVkoKAbErjIRvKiu0tV6?si=XFt_VphPQeKTyo8c38kYfQ
