Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop

MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Rah Digga, Latto, Tierra Whack and other female rappers look back at the influence and important role the women of hip hop played throughout the last 50 years in the Netflix documentary series Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop.

Release Date

The documentary starts streaming on Netflix with a release date of August 9, 2023.


This timely limited doc series recontextualizes the irrepressible women of hip hop and their role in the genre’s 50 years by reinserting them into the canon where they belong: at the center, from day one to present day. Each of the four installments features a parade of iconic emcees like MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, and Rah Digga, up and comers, and artists currently at the top of the charts like Latto, and Tierra Whack alongside key figures from record labels, stylists, and journalists. By giving flowers to originators like Sha-Rock and Roxanne Shante or hearing real talk from contemporary superstars like Saweetie and Coi Leray, Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop contextualizes the history of the music that changed the world within the wider social, racial, and political landscape of the times and, crucially, through a female lens.
