Women in Latin Hip-Hop

 

There’s been a lot of discussion about the role of women (or absence of women) in hip-hop. NPR recently did a story on women in Latin hip-hop. If you’re interested in the genre or in the representation of women artists, you might find this discussion interesting.

One thought on “Women in Latin Hip-Hop

  1. I absolutely love this video and the feeling of power it holds. Usually in hip-hop you see men in power and women in submission but this video goes out of its way to show us otherwise. Especially in the beginning where it shows the women working on cars with black grease on their face and bodies, it shows off this sense of liberation and empowerment that is not commonly seen in hip-hop like music videos.
