In 2019, female rappers are dominating the music industry – Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and Megan Thee Stallion are just a few of the major names in hip hop.

From massive radio hits to worldwide tours, female rappers are no longer unknown voices featured on a male artist’s track to entice listeners, but rather the headlining talent.

Every history of hip-hop previously published focuses exclusively on men. Now, critically acclaimed journalist and author Kathy Iandoli, is flipping the narrative in God Save The Queens: The Essential History of Women in Hip Hop.

Kathy will be in conversation with LA music writer Cherise Johnson, exploring the issues of gender, money, sexuality, violence, body image, feuds, objectification and more.

God Save The Queens is an important monumental work of music journalism that at last gives these influential female artists the respect they have long deserved.

Join us after for book signing, drinks and hip hop music with dublab radio and KCRW DJ Novena Carmel.

God Save The Queens: The Essential History of Women in Hip Hop will be available to purchase on the evening from our bookshop Libreria LA, located inside Second Home Hollywood.
