"Iandoli's book is rigorous, insightful, and authoritative -- but it's also deadly personal."--NPR Books
β€œMusic lovers will celebrate this much-needed exploration of the overlooked experiences of women in hip-hop.”--Publishers Weekly
"In writing God Save the Queens, Kathy finally does what dozens of histories of Hip-Hop have never even attempted, telling the stories of women in the genre...Without God Save the Queens, it is possible that the contributions of dozens of important female hip-hop artists who have sold tens of millions of albums, starred in monumental films, and influenced the direction of the culture would continue to go unrecognized."--AllHipHop.com
"Intended to be a narrative homage to women in hip-hop, this latest work by Iandoli is that and more. . . . Iandoli gives female artists the recognition they deserve, while showing that there is still work to do. Place this book in the hands of fans of Hanif Abdurraqib and Jeff Chang."--Library Journal
