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: open.spotify.com/playlist/7oJV

Show thread

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.

The golden era was big: Most high-ranking songs are from the mid-80s to mid-90s. Little surprise here, I guess. In the top 25, there are only two songs from past decade (by Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar).
