ABOUT:

Clover Hope is a writer and editor based in Brooklyn. Hope has written for Vibe, Billboard, XXL, GQ, Elle, Wall Street Journal Magazine, the New York Times, WIRED, ESPN The Magazine, Essence, and Village Voice, among other publications.

The Motherlode: 100+ Women Who Made Hip-Hop

Women have always been pioneers in rap music, from commercial, chart-topping artists like Lil’ Kim and Missy Elliott to cult icons like Roxanne Shanté and MC Lyte. In 2018, Cardi B became only the second woman rapper ever to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her single “Bodak Yellow,” bringing attention to the industry’s delayed recognition of women’s contribution to the medium. The Motherlode: 100+ Women Who Made Hip Hop by journalist Clover Hope highlights women who have shaped the music, power, and reach of rap.


In The Motherlode, Hope covers more than 100 female rappers, from game changers like Lauryn Hill and Missy Elliott to current reigning queens like Nicki Minaj and Megan Thee Stallion, profiling each of these women, their musical and career breakthroughs, and the ways in which they each helped change the culture of rap. Some rappers featured in the book were respected but not widely celebrated. Some were gifted yet lesser known. Some are impossible not to know. They are characters, caricatures, and lyricists, at times both feminine and explicit. The Motherlode also features interviews with some of the most influential women in the business, such as JJ Fad, Charli Baltimore, and Mia X, as well as illuminating commentary from cultural icons such as music video director Dave Meyers and filmmaker Ava DuVernay.
