Where did this guy come from? Who knows, but I happen to like this song – so I posted. Tis life. Enjoy. (At least he ain’t rapping about guns and stuff).
Ms. Drama of Ms. Drama Entertainment, LLC & Adrienne Lawson of Leverage Marketing, put on their 2nd Annual Gifting Suite event in Atlanta, Ga during the BET Hip-Hop Award Weekend. The event took place at the prestigious Art on 5 Gallery from 6 to 9 pm (www.arton5.com). This invite only event was cleverly themed, the Art of Music Gifting Suite – where the industry’s finest came out to support. Artists and talent such as Rodney Perry (the Monique Show), Tameka “Tiny” Cottle (T.I.’s wife, singer, reality star), Arrested Development, Traxter (Platinum Producer), Lil Twist (Young Money), plus more – showed up to mix, mingle and be highlighted at the red carpet luxury event.

BET’s Documentary on Women in Hip-Hop seemed like a long – awaited conversation that finally came into fruition. It touched on a topic that I think most women in hip-hop are questioning: What happened to all the female emcees? Although the actual number of female emcees aren’t exactly extinct, the culture that once supported them seems to be.
It seems that during the 90s female emcees were made, discovered and shaped — or essentially emerged out of a supply and demand factor; i.e. Lauryn Hill vs. the Lil Kim type. Now that Nicki Minaj has made her imprint on hip-hop, will this start a new trend of female emcees that will supply our culture or must we first demand more?
Upon my own investigation and support to bring these emcees to light and to answer the question, where have all the female emcees gone, I have also conducted the following interviews with some females emcees and to get their thoughts on hip-hop, their stance on music and future of hip-hop.
Thanks BET, you’ve been able to keep conversations going – hopefully this new generation of female emcees will emerge.
