Wednesday March 8th was International Women’s Day. We marked the occasion by shining a spotlight on Hip Hop’s better half. This is the second installment of the special this year. It features a great music mix and more.

We’ve reviewed the years 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, and 1983 by looking at all the releases by women Hip Hop artists have put out in those years. When I started to put the show together for this year, I realized that 1984 only had two records of note by women emcees, but there was a great story behind it. It’s the story of The Roxanne Wars. So we close out the show with an episode of Know Your History I did about it a few years back.

Happy International Women’s Day!
