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
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).
The slides from my #35c3 talk about the ideas and technology behind the Datenguide project are now online.
