s4 e12 — MARGARET CAVENDISH and ROXANNE SHANTE: Sci-Fi stans vs. Rap stans Notorious Women

    • Comedy

This week, Miriam covers the difficult yet accomplished life of writer and Elizabethan era sci-fi author, Margaret Cavendish; and Lavetta covers the surprising and hilarious origins of the Rap/Hip Hop beef thru the life story of Rap/Hip Hop pioneer, Roxanne Shante.
-----
In this episode, Miriam introduces philosopher, scientist, and writer Margaret Cavendish (English 1623–1673), a high society duchess who made significant contributions to philosophy and literature. Unusual for a time when female writers stayed anonymous, Cavendish published under her own name and she wrote on early modern science, power, gender, and natural philosophy, including one of the first science fiction books. Next, Lavetta introduces original female rapper Roxanne Shante (American, born 1969), known for her role in one of the first rap beefs on record. Shante rose to fame at the age of 14 with her hit song 'Roxanne's Revenge.' Growing up in the projects, the hip hop artist discovered her talent for rap battles and caught the attention of record producer Marley Marl. Together, they created a diss track that sparked the Roxanne Wars, leading to over 55 response records. Despite facing challenges and exploitation in the industry, Shante continued to make music and mentor young female artists. Her story was later depicted in the biopic 'Roxanne Roxanne.'
