Something interesting just appeared in my inbox. Those clever heads over at Sektion Red have made a film about female hip hop MCs on the UK scene. Much derided over the years and always severely lacking in numbers compared to their male counterparts, female MCs have had it hard in hip hop full stop.
This documentary focuses on the questions and issues that often arise where these artists are concerned, as well as looking at ways of bringing more of their voices to prominence. The MCs included in the doc are Bobbie Johnson, Genie Marie, Holly Flo Lightly, Jaz Kahina, MINX, Oracy, Seraphim, Shay D & TrueMendous. The film was directed by Oliver Whitehouse and produced by Laura Green, and is available in its entirety on YouTube.
