Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, Lauryn Hill, Cardi B, Salt-N-Pepa, Bahamadia, Moni Love, Young M.A., and so many more - all women who have graced the airwaves to spit bars and change hip hop forever. They have also become caught in the crossfires in the conversation about black women's sexuality. Masculine, feminine, straight, gay, or whatever you please, we're digging into the politics of black bodies and sex.

Part listening party, part live demo, and hilarious talk about music, politics, and culture in between, From the Top explores contemporary 'black' music and its impact on culture (and America's impact on black music). Each month, our hosts - Greg Howard and Chinisha - break down a musical genre, sound, or song in Caveat’s version of your favorite basement ‘music room,’ featuring live demos from musicians, conversations with experts, drinking games, and a lot more.
From blues & soul to r&b, The Minneapolis Sound to hip-hop, New Jack Swing, rap, and beyond, From the Top explores the spaces, technology, economics, and people that have built the foundations for much of contemporary popular music & culture.
