Where have all our Femees gone?

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.

Hey Folks,

The Drama Queen was in the building at the Robin Thicke Listening event. I did get some footage, but was sort of locked out for the interview. An updated post will be coming soon with all the goodies and more. Let’s be real, they can’t keep a good woman down, or for that matter, Drama Queen. The album is sounding good, classic Robin Thicke soul stuff that we like. Jay is on it, and so is Nickie Minaj…(she’s on her Foxy Brown right now) plus I’m hearing he’s rapping on it too. More details are in the mix. A repost of Jay-Z and Robin in the studio is in my video section. Peep it here: http://msdramatv.com/videos/

Of course, I’m more focused on the footage aspect, so the update for that should be coming soon. Just wanted to let you guys know I was on it.

P.S. Excuse my appearance, that was my 3rd event of the day look — ehhh.  ?-:  BTW, Peep the Dre footage below, that was event 2, lol.

Thanks for your support.

Luv, your Drama Queen.
