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. 

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.
