    Ep.255 - Women's History Month '24 - Sister Souljah

    Happy March one & all! You know what that means... Women's History Month on DITD is back and to kick off this year's set, we begin with the one & done Sister Souljah who took the political climate of her time to produce one of the most honest & politically scathing records in Hip-Hop history.
    No timestamps for this episode as we don't have a WMR or a substantial Lighter Note, reason being that we recorded this on the same day as the previous episode.
