Just in time for hip-hop's 50th anniversary, Netflix has unveiled a trailer for a docuseries on the women who defined the genre. Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop is set to arrive August 9.

The series will celebrate women's influence in hip-hop from its beginnings to the present day. It'll feature sit-down interviews with Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Roxanne Shante, Tierra Whack, Saweetie, Coi Leray and many more. Watch the trailer for it below.

"This timely limited doc series re-contextualizes the irrepressible women of hip hop and their role in the genre's 50 years by reinserting them into the canon where they belong: at the centre, from day one to present day," a press release reads. "By giving flowers to originators like Sha-Rock and Roxanne Shante or hearing real talk from contemporary superstars like Saweetie and Coi Leray, Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop contextualizes the history of the music that changed the world within the wider social, racial, and political landscape of the times and, crucially, through a female lens."

Some online have been quick to point out that the trailer fails to mention Nicki Minaj. Let's hope the series makes some mention of the best-selling female rapper ever, lest its creators face the wrath of the Barbz.
