FIRST THINGS FIRST reframes the history of hip-hop but, this time, women are given credit for all their trailblazing achievements that have left an undeniable impact on music.

FIRST THINGS FIRST takes readers on a journey through some of the most notable firsts by women in hip-hop history and their importance. Factual firsts like Queen Latifah becoming the first rapper to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Lauryn Hill making history as the first rapper to win the coveted Album of the Year Award at the GRAMMYs, April Walker being the first woman to dominate in the hip-hop fashion game, and Da Brat being the first solo woman rapper to have an album go platinum, not to forget metaphorical firsts like Missy Elliott being the first woman rapper to go to the future. Legends like Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Kim and Mary J. Blige are in here too. FIRST THINGS FIRST is a celebration of the achievements of women in hip-hop who broke down barriers and broke the mould.
