Artist: Arusa Qureshi


Label: 404 Ink

Release date:

It has taken a significant amount of time for women to get recognition in the genre, even though there have been phenomenal women in hip hop since its beginnings in the Bronx in the 1970s \- but why did we take so long in the UK? FLIP THE SCRIPT gets to know the women who have paved\nthe way, the successes and experiences of those that shape the thriving scene\nwe have today.\n\nArusa goes in depth with a number of female rappers who are making waves right now to find out about their relationships with hip hop, why they were attracted to the scene, what their thoughts are on the future of the genre and whether or not they feel a sense of belonging. Using her own research, and with reference to pioneers and critical theory, she explores hip hop’s history of misogyny and how women have traditionally been looked over by their peers, and celebrates the brilliant icons who have made this one of the most exciting genres to be part of. A must read for fans of music, feminism, and culture.
