If you know anything about Hip Hop, you know that women have contributed a lot to the genre/culture. However, in many ways, their presence is still taboo! WHY? Well, ShySpeaks hosted a convo with Lady Jade (Radio Personality on DFW's leading Hip Hop/R&B Station) and J. Rhodes (Producer for Hip Hop acts, Lecrae, Game, Talib Kweli, Royce Da 5'9, Ab-Soul, to name a few) to answer that question. The discussion spans from us witnessing an over emphasis on the #SexSymbolRapper to the lack of female affiliates among today's leading male artist.
Dear #HipHop, there are several women's stories yet to be told in Hip Hop. Let's not accidentally silence the next powerful, inspirational voice before she arises!
