Even a casual hip-hop fan can quote lyrics from Missy Elliott, TLC, and Salt-N-Pepa, but SHEmovement aims to celebrate not just the heavy-hitters, but less well-known lady mc's like Psalm One, Red Shaydez, Hot Yella, Miz Korona, and Lady Loe.
The website features hip-hop-centric news and profiles of female rappers, as well as photos, videos, and blogs that the artists themselves update. The musicians on the site produce blends of hip-hop as diverse as they are--white, black and middle eastern mc's are all represented. SHEmovement even boasts a radio channel for those who are overwhelmed by all the great musical options. The site is dedicated to bringing women to the forefront of hip-hop and increasing awareness about the ladies in the game. They're also committed to advancing partnerships between female rappers, artists, writers, and fans. For more info, check out SHEmovement.
