She's So Fresh Showcase
A Dope Emcee Is A Dope Emcee .... KRS-One said It Best!! If There's One thing that irritates me the most in Hip-Hop is when it's misrepresented. To Have a Hip-Hop publication that doesn't speak on female contributions past & present as if Female Emcees List only Consists of Foxy Brown, Lil' Kim & Trina is just Blasphemy!! As a Fan of Hip-Hop @ a young age I was influenced by Salt n Pepa, Roxanne Shante,MC Lyte,Queen Latifah,Ms.Melody,Bahamadiah,Lauryn Hill just as much as Dougie Fresh,LL Cool J,RunDMC,Slick Rick,KRS One,Rakim. When you speak about balance & choice In Hip-Hop if we ever come remotely close to 88' again ,Hip-hop will have offically come full circle!! I can honestly say after witnessing Emcees Eyeris,Controversy,Bless Roxwell, Tiye Phoenix & Lin Que ,Author Thembisa S. Mshaka (Put Your Dreams First) & Singer/Songwriter Miz Metro @ the All Female She's So Fresh Showcase @ Karma Lounge that Hip-Hop can offically exhale!!
