Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott and Cardi B attend MTV VMAs, Pepsi & Monami Entertainment celebrate the Video Vanguard Award honoree Missy Elliott at her after-party celebration on Aug. 26, 2019 in New York City.

This week, Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj make history on the Billboard Hot 100 by becoming the first two female rappers to share billing on a No. 1 single, with disco-pop throwback "Say So" ascending to the top spot. And below them on the chart, another all-female rap collaboration: Megan Thee Stallion and a bar-spitting Beyoncé on "Savage."

To commemorate this historic occasion, while also paying tribute to the myriad female MCs that achieved Billboard chart success before them -- many of whom still don't get the credit they deserve -- Billboard has prepared a quiz testing your knowledge of some of those hitmakers.

Take a look below at our 20-question quiz -- you'll need to score 60% or better to pass -- and see how good you are putting "Ladies First" in your hip-hop history.
