Party Plug: @BET’s “My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women In Hip-Hop!Published by Gyant on Friday, August 27, 2010 at 12:35 pm.
It’s going down this Monday. If you’re a fan of the ladies of hip-hop then BET and a few other sponsors are bringing a special event.
Female rapper, Princess, will host a special viewing party for BET’s new Documentary “My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth about Women and Hip Hop” on Monday, August 30, 2010 at 9:00 p.m. at Tongue & Groove in Atlanta, Georgia.
The documentary, “MY MIC SOUNDS NICE: A TRUTH ABOUT WOMEN AND HIP HOP” is an appealing, inside look at how women have affected rap music, and in turn how rap music affects female MCs of past and present. Artists such as MC Lyte, Missy Elliott, and Queen Latifah contributed significantly to the shaping of hip hop music, bringing new sounds to the record labels. With the emergence of a younger generation of women in hip-hop like Nicki Minaj, “MY MIC SOUNDS NICE: A TRUTH ABOUT WOMEN AND HIP HOP” serves as a commentary for how hip hop music is influenced by women and vice versa. This documentary examines gender-specific differences in artistry, marketing, promotion and economics, explores why there are far fewer female than male MCs, and discusses whether there’s still a place for women in hip-hop.
“This is a story that could not be told by one voice. It required a chorus. And although this story is comprehensive, it is still likely one of many truths about the role of women in hip-hop” said Stephen Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials.
“MY MIC SOUNDS NICE: A TRUTH ABOUT WOMEN AND HIP-HOP” features revealing interviews with journalists, executives, and rappers, including Missy Elliott, EVE, Trina, Rah Digga, MC Lyte, Yo Yo, Questlove, along with hip-hop moguls Jermaine Dupri, Russell Simmons, Kevin Liles and many more. “MY MIC SOUNDS NICE: A TRUTH ABOUT WOMEN AND HIP HOP” is directed and produced by Ava DuVernay.
Gyant on BET Blog will be in the building so come on out and support women in hip-hop.
Until Next Time…
