Documentary Highlights Women Of Hip-Hop

NEW YORK -- BET Networks takes an in-depth look at the role of female rappers in the hip-hop industry in the premiere of its first original music documentary special, MY MIC SOUNDS NICE: A TRUTH ABOUT WOMEN AND HIP HOP. 

The documentary, which premieres August 30th at 10 PM EDT, is an 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 including Nicki Minaj and Diamond, 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 DupriRussell SimmonsKevin Liles and many more.
