#TBT – DJ Eleven – Ladies First

TBT this week is Eleven’s ode to the first ladies of Hip-Hop with his “Ladies First” mix from the summer of 2012. This outstanding mix of the female impulse in rap spans generations, vibes and styles…with many of these ladies being the first to break certain styles and sounds (i.e. see Roxanne Shante, Missy Elliot, M.I.A., J.J. Fad, etc). Clocking in at almost an hour, you’re guaranteed to come out feeling wowed by the influence of these powerful women. Even Iggy and Azealia sounded rad and super hungry in 2012. Revisit this killer mix from Eleven above or check the download link below.
