Monday, August 30, 2010, Princess (of Crime Mob) played host to a special Atlanta viewing party for BET’s new documentary “My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth about Women and Hip-Hop”.
Female MC, Rasheeda, V-103 DJ Traci Steele; model, Dawn Motgomery; hip-hop publicist, Dee Dee Cocheta; pop-culture expert Ronda Racha Penrice; music industry executive, Shanti Das; and rapper, Eshe from Arrested Development all took part in a panel discussion which highlighted issues that females in hip-hop struggle with in the music industry.
The panelists all revealed a common thread in their discussion, which was that hip-hop is a male dominated world. Women in hip-hop constantly have to fight to maintain respect in an industry where men call all the shots.
